Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Stromness, Mainland, Orkney Islands, Scotland
The stone cottage has a long and fascinating history, dating back to the 18th century, when it was a boat builder's house.

Recently restored and modernised to a high standard, the cottage is located right in the heart of the Stromness conservation area, a short walk from shops (including bakery, delicatessen, restaurants, pubs and other amenities).

Stromness is one of the main gateways into Orkney, located in the west of the islands. The first settlement here dates back to the Vikings, who identified the bay of Hamnavoe as a sheltered harbour. The town has a long and rich maritime history, and hosts several events during the year including the Orkney Folk Festival in May, the St Magnus International Festival in June and Stromness Shopping Week in July, a community gala celebrating all aspects of local life.

Impressed?? You bet we were !! Our first visit to Orkney and we could have extended our stay in Stromness and resided quite happily at 15 Church Road indefinitely but unfortunately, like other things, we couldn't. Stromness, a preferable holiday base to Kirkwall in our...More

The cottage was spotless and had in it all we would need for a week's (or more) holiday. The free parking outside the door was a bonus. We had a super time exploring the island and then relaxing at no.15 in the evenings. Many thanks...More

Stromness is a really beautiful town, even in (especially in?) December and January. We stayed in Andy's cottage for a month - long enough to discover the problems, but there weren't any! The fully-fitted kitchen has all that you need, including full sized freezer, separate...More

About the neighbourhood
The property lies in the heart of the town, walking distance from the ferry terminal (10 minutes) and close to shops and other amenities. If you are travelling by car, there is free on-street parking.

With its cobbled streets winding around the shore and up the steep hill, Stromness is a delightful place to explore on foot. The narrow closes off the main street offer glimpses of the water between buildings, and as you climb the hill a magnificent vista opens up, looking out across Scapa Flow to the dramatic hills of North Hoy.

If you're looking for outdoor activities, there are plenty of options close by. Boats offer sea angling trips from the harbour, and there is excellent trout fishing nearby (the West Mainland has some of the best brown trout lochs in the country). Stromness is...
