Property conditions & facilities

5/5 Excellent

The Nous
Compact property that has been tastefully renovated, with beautiful view of the sea. Good location and v handy for the ferry.

5/5 Excellent

Sea views
The cottage overlooked Scapa flow and was close to a shop and the pub. The accommodation was clean and comfortable.

5/5 Excellent

Great house in a wonderful location
A very confortable house in a wonderful location. The Noust was very clean and has high quality fittings. It has great views over the bay - we particularly liked sitting in the window seat looking at the sea birds and seals. St Margaret's Hope is a friendly small community with all the facilities you could need.

5/5 Excellent

Superb cottage in fantastic location
This is a really lovely cottage in a brilliant location. Positioned on the edge of the jetty, you can literally swim/canoe/paddle board from 10 metres from the front door. St Margaret's Hope is a village of character and charm with good local shops, places to eat, golf course and the craft co-op shop. Only 10 - 12 mins drive from Kirkwall makes it a convenient location. The cottage is really well presented - good quality furnishings, good size living/dining/kitchen room and good sized bedroom and light and airy - with the living room window perfectly framing the view of the bay. It was spotlessly clean. Everything you could want for a fabulous week (or less/more) on the friendly and wonderful Orkney Isles!

5/5 Excellent
