Brymire House
This house is a real home from home and is centrally located on mainland Orkney-sleeping from one to seven persons.
Centrally located for the airport, ferries, towns and tourist attractions; 2 miles from Kirkwall Airport, 5 miles from Kirkwall, 12.5 miles from St Margarets Hope and 20 miles from Stromness. This former croft house has unique and charming features and is a real home from home. Your host also operates the next door property, Brymire Cottage and is an experienced host.

The space
Brymire House is tranquil, clean, and comfortable and is in a great location with lovely views. Renovated to a high standard, the house is well equipped and has beautiful decoration, carpets, vinyl and furniture and is heated by two air source units. Each room has a colour scheme reflective of Orkney; the main bedroom with king size bed is “Aurora” themed, the second bedroom with bunk beds reflects Orkney’s shore and sand stone and evening skies, the third with a day sofa bed feature’s Orkney’s shoreline and skies, the open plan living room/kitchen summer/autumnal Orkney with cheeky hints of copper reflecting it’s many distilleries, the bath/shower room sand, seaweed and rocky shoreline and there is a utility area featuring Orkney’s crystal clear light and sparkling sea and it has a washing machine and tumble drier. There is also a drying green and shed. Also featured throughout the property are canvas prints featuring Orkney scenes and nature. With a rural property, there is wildlife and nature on the doorstep; owl, hare, rabbit, pheasant, geese, song birds and on an occasion, a hen harrier. You may also be fortunate and view an Orkney vole.
There is a very well equipped kitchen with cooker, fridge freeze, microwave and dishwasher. Smart TV’s are available in the living room and the two main bedrooms and with your own app subscription you can view e.g. Netflix and YouTube. There are three steps to the front door and one step into the living room and the two main bedrooms and two steps to the utility area. In the entrance hall there is the unique feature of a curved wall.
Attached is a secure shed, which is available for the storage of e.g. bikes, kayaks, canoes , etc and a drying area for outdoor clothing for those participating in outdoor activities.
I am a super host and already provide self catering accommodation at the next door property, Brymire Cottage. With two self catering properties in close proximity to each other and each with their own private space, I can offer, if bookings allow, grandparents and their son/daughters’ family their own private holiday accommodation in which they can holiday together or alternatively, two families wishing to holiday together however, in separate properties. This property has a strict policy for no smoking and does not accept pets.
4/8/20 Review - "We had a really wonderful visit thank you. The weather was very kind and we’ve managed to enjoy some great walks, some famous sights and some local work in the form of jewellery, and gin!!!

"I’d like to thank you very much indeed for opening your property to us in this trying time when coronavirus seems to be trying to invade our normal lives. Brymire House is very comfortable, beautifully decorated and has more than anyone could possibly need in a holiday cottage. We were extremely glad to have found you!" Thank you.
