“A lovely dog-friendly cottage in a great location.”
Reviewed 9 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The property is very welcoming and comfortable and the excellent welcome basket is the best we have received on all our self-catering holidays. The owners, Jayne and Darren, were very friendly and welcoming.
The local Co-op in Dounby is very handy for food, and very friendly, as are all the local people that we met. The beach and Broch of Gurness are well worth a visit, and are both on the doorstep.

HI there folks. Thank you so much for the positive feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay in Orkney. We would never have known there was a four legged friend in the house, it was left so tidy and clean! We hope you had a safe journey home and if your ever in Orkney again, please do look us up. Best Wishes, Jayne and Darren Richardson.
