“a really lovely holiday home”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is probably one of the best holiday homes we have stayed in. We were greeted by Tina & Paul even though we arrived later than anticipated. Tina showed us around the cottage & explained about the heating etc. There was a 'Welcome pack' consisting of cake (save me buying one as it was hubbys' birthday on the Saturday), bread, cheese, butter, eggs & milk. Cake was lovely with a cup of tea!
Didn't realise towels & hair drier would be included when I booked the cottage (my fault, should have asked).
The only down side was I thought we wouldn't require our own transport. I didn't realise Deerness wasn't near to Kirkwall & the airport etc. Public transport was very sporadic, so I would say, book a car prior to your visit if flying.
Very suprised to see Tiffyhall on the market. Such a shame. I hope that whoever buys the properties will look after it as well as Tina & Paul

Thank you for a great review, Tiffyhall is located in Deerness and is approximately 8 miles from the airport and 12 miles from Kirkwall. There are bus links into Kirkwall at least 3 times a day, we also travel to and fro Kirkwall daily so can drop anyone into town if needs be. But yes if you want to travel further a field and are flying into Orkney a car would be recommended. The welcome pack is all locally produced products which are fresh and as for the cake, I enjoy baking and like to share. Yes Towels, bed linen, hair dryer are included and if not sure then yes do check as we do try and accommodate our visits as much as we can.
