The location is amazing - just perched above Stromness, so a 10-minute stroll into town, but also a spectacular view of the harbour, hills and surrounding countryside. Joy and Robbie are wonderful hosts - the breakfasts were perfect, the room was perfect and their company, friendliness and advice was perfect. Complete perfection. We'll be back - why on earth would...

When signing in, was met by Joy with a very welcome tea after having cycled in from Kirkwall. The farm is attractive, the room was spacious, comfortable and beautifully appointed (complete with jasrs of sweets!). Stunning view of the isle of Hoy. Breakfast generous and with lots of local produce (including lcoal cheeses)

A very nice place for your stay in Stromness. The hostess, Joy, is simply wonderful. The breakfast is superior and in the beautiful cosy rooms you will always find a jar filled with the best short bread you have ever had - homemade by her.

Situated slightly uphill from Stromness, the views are stunning across Stromness harbor to Graemsay and Hoy Islands from our very comfortable Hoy room and from the breakfast room. The breakfast was delicious with lots of variety, everything from a full scottish to fruit and freshly made Bere Bannocks made from local Barony Mills flour served with local butter and cheeses....

Enjoyed a very relaxing and comfortable stay at Burnside Farm. Joy provided excellent home cooked breakfasts and everything one could want for a very pleasant stay on Orkney and a stones throw from the ferry.

We stayed here for two nights while exploring Orkney. What an absolute delight, the room was beautifully decorated with individual items of furniture which perfectly suited the farmhouse setting. And the bathroom was outstanding, with everything you could ask for including an anti-misting mirror. Extra touches such as traditional Scottish shortbread, chocolates and cotton buds all made it feel very...

Joy made me feel right at home as soon as I arrived. The room was spacious, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. I loved the variety of teas and lovely toiletries. The views from the room over Stromness and Scapa Flow were stunning. The breakfast was fabulous, the fresh berries and rhubarb were the most delicious I have tasted!
