Comfortable and well equipped cottage.
Very cosy with wood burner going with great views of the sea. Great base to explore the Orkneys and their incredible history. Very helpful hosts and overall a fantastic staycation destination.

“Compact and Cosy”
Reviewed 10 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

The weather in Orkney this past week has been wet and wild, and not for the feint hearted, but we watched a lot of it from the big picture windows of Tiffyhall 2! Down towards the sea we could judge the wind by the waves and the way the seagulls were riding the gusts. Canada geese grazed beside our hosts domestics, and in the morning flocks of starlings wheeled across the fields.

Orkney is a beautiful place at anytime of the year, and Tiffyhall is a beautiful place to stay. Cosy, comfortable and has everything you could need for your stay.

“Clean, comfortable and full of character”
Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This rental is extremely good value for money. Having spent many UK holidays is cottage lettings we know what to expect for the cost of the letting. This rental is as good as any we've stayed in at a very reasonable rent. No complaints at all, well equipped, friendly owners who are on site but not intrusive. The welcome pack of provisions an added bonus. We had a glorious of week of weather which made our holiday extra special especially as we stayed in October and spotted 6 Grey Seal pups with their mums on a remote beach. If we had not had such good weather the cottage was cosy enough to stay home with DVDs books and wifi signal !!

“Terrific and welcoming place to stay, a home from home”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Really warm welcome and fantastic well equipped cottage. We arrived to find a home baked. Cake, cheese, eggs, Orkney butter and bread in the fridge which was left by our hosts.

Cottage was clean warm and traditional yet modern with everything you would need during your stay.

Stayed in some of the best hotels and this is up there with the best. Would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone and will defiantly be going back.

“Rural retreat of our dreams!”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Very warm and knowledgeable welcome from Tina, with delicious homemade cake and Orkney goodies in fridge.
Absolutely stunning location with wonderful views of sea and open views of Orkney's beautiful landscape.
Cottage was bigger and much more spacious than we thought with every amenity laid on by Paul and Tina, from a very useful pair of binoculars to eggs from their own chickens left for us.
Although the weather is not dictated by any holiday cottage owner - we had brilliant weather being very warm and dry with very little rain. Had it been very wet there was more than enough in the cottage to keep us occupied, simply watching the views was entertaining enough! Genuinely didn't want to leave and we will be back to Tiffyhall.
