“This is an ideal place to stay if you fancy relaxing in the Orkney countryside for a few days. Two big features in its favour: the close proximity to sites on the West side of the mainland, and waking up to a fantastic view of the fields and loch. The Puffin Pod has only been running for a few months so everything is brand new, but has everything you could need. Donna is the best host you could wish for, you'll feel at ease straight away. One helpful hint to future guests - using Google Maps as satnav to find the place will only work if you put the name of the farm. I learned the hard way not to follow the postcode directions as ended up at a different farm running away from some rather snappy dogs. Thanks Donna, for being so welcoming and considerate! Would love to stay here again someday.”
The cottage is in a quiet rural area 10 minute walk from stromness pier head. There is panoramic views with the island of hoy and the Atlantic to the west and wild country side and farmland in the east. There is also a large mature garden which houses some hens. It is also well situated for walker's as in every direction is a nice walk. Weaverhall is in a beautiful secluded area but all local amenities are easily accessible.
“We had a great time at this cottage. There are gorgeous views over the sea, and lovely walks nearby. The cottage had everything we needed for a self catering trip and was really cosy with lots of nice touches! Ingrid and Neil were very helpful and so accommodating. Excellent hosts and we would definitely stay again (Probably in summer though! 😂)”
Situated close to the beach with views of the Old Man of Hoy and on to Scotland's north coast
“We were Angela and Simon’s first guests and we were completely blown away by our experience in their home. There are views of the ocean and Old Man of Hoy and Kitchener’s memorial through beautiful skylights and Shetland ponies just outside. The space is truly gorgeous-giant windows and comfy bed, an excellent shower and bath tub (best hot shower and bath we’ve had in awhile!), also a kettle, toaster and small fridge which we greatly appreciated for storing our road trip groceries. Above all, Angela and Simon were hugely welcoming and made us feel right at home, but left us total privacy to enjoy the quiet night in that we needed. But you could also walk right down to the ocean/do lots of exploring from their place! In short, we couldn’t recommend staying with them more. If you’re looking for a gorgeous, peaceful place from which to explore the Orkneys with accommodating hosts who have all the local knowledge you could hope for, look no further. Thank you again, Angela and Simon-wishing you the very best!”
