Ocean View delivers the best of both worlds as it offers a truly get away from it all location with excellent sea views, but within easy driving distance from Orkney's most famous attractions and main towns.
Ocean View is a quiet and relaxing place to stay with a stunning view northwards over the Atlantic and Orkney's wildlife on it's doorstep - hares and sea birds are aplenty in the neighbouring fields including a pair of hen harriers who are regular visitors. The location, well away from any light pollution, means that Ocean View offers beautiful dark skies - a great choice then for star-gazers and an ideal spot to view the Northern Lights should you be lucky enough for them to put on a display.
All this and yet Ocean View is a mere ten miles from Orkney's most famous attractions and only twenty miles from Orkney's main towns of Stromness and Kirkwall with local shops, restaurants and bars nearby. There is plenty of private parking and a large shed to store any outdoor equipment you bring.
Ocean View was renovated in 2013 so although the exterior resembles a traditional Orkney cottage the interior is modern and tastefully decorated with a double bedroom, twin bedroom, lovely sitting room with superb views, shower room and large kitchen/diner to enable you to relax after a busy day's sightseeing. Free Satellite TV and wireless broadband are included and the Air to Air Source heating keeps the cottage at whatever temperature you desire. And you can rest assured that all of this is provided with very little damage to the environment as Ocean View has been built to be virtually 100% energy efficient - with it's very own windmill to generate electricity, one of the most energy efficient heating systems and recycling facilities provided. If you have a four-legged friend, no need to leave them at home as Ocean View is pet friendly and has a large enclosed garden for them to enjoy. We maintain a vegetable patch in the garden and would be delighted for you to help yourself to whatever is seasonably available during your stay. If Al Fresco dining is something you enjoy a gas barbeque is provided for you and there is a patio area with picnic bench for your enjoyment.
We look forward to welcoming you to Ocean View and are sure that staying here will only add to your amazing Orkney Holiday experience.
