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, l park myself a couple of minutes away.

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.
A washing machine & dryer can be used for a small fee per wash.

Where you’ll be

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".
