Da Roost has a perfect location; the views from here are fantastic and a lot of places of interest are nearby too. The house itself is exceptional; a really comfortable place in which to relax. I’d return in an instant!
With the property set in its own grounds but very close to Haroldswick Bay there are lovely views on all sides particularly onto the shore and sea beyond. It was lovely to wake up in the morning and look straight out onto the bay with sun streaming in though the windows. In the evening the sunsets at the rear of the property were spectacular. We experienced very nice weather during our stay but the very well heated rooms with the option of an open fire in the sitting room would make the stay very cosy whatever the weather.
Entering the property into a large hallway made the removal of outer clothes and footwear very easy.
The large kitchen / diner is well appointed and has lovely views as you prepare meals and wash up, but there is a dish washer.
The sitting room is well appointed and we appreciated the reference books for identifying birds, flowers, etc. There is a tv and iPod player which we hardly used.
We used the two bedrooms overlooking the bay and it was very pleasant to have a bath in one of the rooms after long walks.
Haroldswick is in a beautiful part of Unst with a lovely cafe, heritage centre and boat haven all close by. Further afield there are lovely beaches and walks on the cliffs to appreciate the wild life.
Thoroughly recommend to anyone wishing to stay in the far north of Shetland.
