thankyou for a lovely night away, the gardens are out of this world, waterfalls and trees, leading down to a shoreline, breakfast was lovely, staff were very good, lovely fluffy dressing gowns, a old building but that adds to the charm of the place

I'm so pleased I picked Woodwick House for my stay in Orkney. The proprietress is wonderful, enthusiastic, and a great cook, with a wonderful sense of humor. The hotel is cozy and comfortable, breakfasts are insanely good, and you can wander the grounds whispering "Oh my god that's gorgeous" for hours. It's also a great location if you're a history...

Woodwick House is a little off the beaten path. It's not even in Evie actually, but nestles in a snug little clump of trees back off the highway across a field or two of grazing sheep. It is an oasis of old world gentility and charm and I loved every minute of the three day stay my wife and I... More

Woodwick House is a BnB that just kept on giving. Our host and staff were wonderful, the setting enchanting and the house was quirky and charming. Our room was clean with bottled water and a wonderful selection of quality teas. We had afternoon tea at Woodwick on our first day with sandwiches, scones and homemade cakes, which were all absolutely... More

What a find! We had been looking for a pet friendly accommodation and found Woodwick House. It is equi-distant from Kirkwall and Stromness, 20 minutes (ish) from each, near Evie in a beautiful wooded area. The grounds are magnificent, with a beautiful stream (complete with waterfalls) to wander along while enjoying a glass of wine. The Guest House itself is... More

We arrived on a beautiful sunny day at Woodwick House and had a very lovely welcome by Carola at the door. The lunch was very tasty in the orangery. We had a very enjoyable afternoon walking round the stunning garden bursting with bluebells and enjoyed the tranquillity very much. A lovely spot in Evie, Orkney - so much Potential!

Very comfortable accommodation in a lovely setting. We were given a warm welcome which set the tone for the rest of our 3 night stay. The lounge is a great room to chillax (as our teenager would say), the younger child loved feeding the chickens and the burn and the dog loved everywhere- the well kept garden, the walk to... More

Beautiful house located in a secluded part of the island. The house is surrounded by beautiful gardens and has magnificent ocean views. Very comfortable stay. Excellent breakfast and lovely afternoon teas! We were well looked after and had not just a stay, but an experience. Highly recommend.

It's not what you would call a modern hotel, and if it were I wouldn't come here. What it is, is extremely clean, comfortable, charming, quiet, romantic. If you're torn between coming to Orkney and going to Las Vegas, go to Las Vegas, please. If you'd like a place to heal your war-torn urban spirit, come here. It's magical.

Very disappointed in this property. It is apparent that the owner is not investing any money in keeping up/maintaining the property. Dining room had 2 lights burned out in one chandelier, and a glass shade and light bulb missing in the second chandelier. The hot water in the shower took a very long time to arrive. EVERY other guest house... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Woodwick House is a warm & welcoming historic country house overlooking the island of Gairsay, offering comfortable accommodation and home cooked food. Set in an extraordinary, peaceful location with bluebell woodland, a cascading burn & a secluded bay on this sheltered part of Orkney, within easy reach of the main historic sites, bird reserves and sandy beaches. Step into a unique and special place and make yourself at home, We love Woodwick’s energy with its sea air and the flowing water with the wind in the trees and bird song. ... more   less
