Owlswood Lodge is the perfect house in the perfect location for your Orkney holiday.
A traditional house with flag stone floors and multi fuel stove but with all the advantages of modern facilities. The house embraces green tourism utilizing a ground source heat pump and 5Kw wind turbine.
All electric, linen and towels included in price. Wheelchair users are welcome - we have a level access shower and rails in the main bathroom. Facilites include a hot tub.
There are wonderful unrestricted views over Scapa Flow and the south isles. From the window you can see the Royal Oak buoy and enjoy the wonderful changing light on the Gaitnip cliffs. Birds and wildlife are guaranteed - hen harriers and hares are common sights both from the house and in the adjacent Hobbister RSPB reserve. There is plenty outside space with an enclosed garden and access to a small woodland. Great for kids, who can also get the opportunity to feed hens, gather eggs and speak to the very friendly sheep. Dogs are welcome too by arrangement.
Just a very short drive away is Waulkmill Bay - a fantastic beach, perfect for paddling and picnics. In fact, all of Orkney is just a short drive away with Owlswood Lodge being located in the heart of Orkney - Just 3 miles from Kirkwall and all of it's amenities.
