Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The Seabarn is an eco-friendly and lovingly modernised 17th century barn. It is very well insulated and heated, keeping it warm and cosy year round. It has lovely design and is well appointed - with a brilliant view, walking distance of the local shop, hotel and pub, and direct access to some of Shetland's most stunning walks. It sits just above the Hillswick beach at the end of a private road.

The space
A high standard of finishing throughout - you'll find all the main amenities on one level with easy access. There is one main bedroom, with a second mezzanine bedroom accessed via spiral staircase. The barn sleeps four comfortably, but six at a push (the sofa on the main level folds down into a comfy double bed).

You'll find the kitchen fully equipped, including all the essentials. There are two bathrooms, one of them en-suite. There is a separate bath and shower in the main bathroom, and a shower in the en-suite.

There is a fantastic sea view, with direct beach access within the village of Hillswick.

Central heating, phone and wifi included.

Electricity, linen and towels provided.

Lots of information provided including things to do nearby. If you're stuck what to pick, we're in the white house down the road. Knock on the door and ask!

Where you’ll be

Hillswick, United Kingdom

On the edge of the village of Hillswick - it's both private and secluded but with great access to local walks, a great wee community shop (including petrol) and the local hotel for evening meals or a drink.
There is a beach right beside us, with amazing cliffs and beaches only a short walk away.

I'm Susan and I'm originally from Glasgow, but have lived in Shetland for years with my husband Tom and 3 children, now grown up and on the mainland. I work here as the local GP, and am always 'busy' but enjoy footering around in the extensive gardens at the manse. My husband Tom is a writer and journalist and we have an old Staffie called Blue and a wee mongrel called Dexter.
