Cosy attic double bedroom with a table & two chairs. It has it's own en suite shower room.
The house is on the waters edge in the heart of Stromness with it's wonderful old cobbled streets & lanes. It's a short walk from the ferry terminal. With a selection of small shop's closed by, a little further is a co op (it has extensive opening hours).
You'll also find hotel restaurant's & cafe's close by.
There's no direct vehicle access, though there is parking close by.

The space
With it being an attic room on the second floor it may not be for people over 6ft 2 or have difficulties with stairs (though the steps are not steep). The bed is a standard double.
You'll also find a small fridge, toaster & kettle, with a selection of tea's & coffee, (you'll need to bring your own milk).
The pictures tell the story, the house is right on the waters edge, it has a wide sea wall, perfect for sitting on, watching the boats & wildlife come & go.
It's only a few minutes walk from shops, ferry terminal/bus stop & museum. You'll also find wonderful displays in the Pier art centre.
The room is nice & cosy, but you have space to move around. There's a built in cupboard which is big enough to store luggage away. You also have your own heater, so can control the temperature in the room.

Guest access
Access is to the room & the outside space. There is a table & chairs that can be used.

Other things to note
Hi, l try to be flexible with the checking in time, but l work a varied amount of hours, mostly in the afternoon. So sometimes check in is not possible until later, but I do have a secure outdoor space where luggage can be dropped off.

Orkney, Scotland, United Kingdom

Stromness is a very peaceful place to be, & the house is very secluded even though it's in the town. Orkney has very little crime, so it's a very safe place to be.
We also have a public swimming pool, it's situated at the north end of town & of course a 18 hole golf course at the south end (overlooking the Island of Hoy).

I love being outside, am interested in most crafts, though never mastered knitting. I always have a book on the go, especially enjoy a detective/thriller, but have been known to pick up the odd romance for a change. Enjoy travel, films, music/musicals & spending time with friends, which usually involves food & maybe a small glass or so of wine. Oh & l enjoy renovating, this is my fourth project. My motto in life is "to treat people as you would wish to be treated".
