Lovely waterside cottage

  • 5 of 5

We love the Orkney Islands, particularly South Ronaldsay, and St Margaret's Hope has everything including is cottage which has been the best place we've stayed in over the last three weeks in four different bases in these and the Shetland Isles.

Beautifully situated, comfortable and well well equipped.

We hope to be back!

A Cosey Cottage on a Magical Island

  • 5 of 5

Liz & I departed the ferry, drove less than 1/2 mile around the bay right into the cottage. Tracy met us at the door and helped us get situated. The accommodations were exceptional. We highly recommend the cottage.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was in a great location on the water. Meticulously clean and well stocked. It is a very comfortable. Our only suggestion is providing clients with written instructions for the workings of the appliances. We had a wonderful stay and thank you for your hospitality.

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic weekend in a lovely one bedded cottage on the waterside. Very quiet and peaceful. There is a pub and cafe nearby but they do shut early. The owner met us at the door and was very welcoming. The cottage contained everything we needed for our weekend stay including milk, tea and coffe. There was even an electric blanket on the king sized bed. It was immaculately kept and very modern. Free wi-if was an added extra. I would recommend this property to couples but it does have a fold down bed in the living area so a family should be able to stay.
