Wonderful week in Orkney
Thankyou for such a relaxing holiday - excellent hospitality , cottage beautifully appointed and so comfortable for our 3 generation family group. Much enjoyed and look forward to revisiting!
This house was truly wonderful. The property owners were kind enough to drop by and make sure we got in okay. The house and surrounds were even more beautiful in person than the pictures conveyed. The property was very quiet and peaceful, the beds were extremely comfortable and the lounge was a great place to retire at the end of a day of sightseeing. We wouldn't think twice about coming back here again should we return to Orkney.
Alles hat gestimmt
Das Bild gibt das Ferienhaus nicht wirklich wider. Der 'Altbau' gehört dazu, aber drin ist nichts mehr alt. Viel Platz, alles, was wir uns von einem Ferienhaus wünschen.
Sehr gut ist auch die Schlüsselübergabe, so dass man nicht zeitlich unter Druck steht.
Orkney selbst ist einfach prima und wir hatten noch dazu Glück mit dem Wetter.
Alles in Allem ein sehr gelungener Urlaub.
