The space
**Update January 2021. We are closed to bookings from guests who are not local residents. As Covid tier levels reduce nationally we will review our booking status.**
We continue to clean to our usual high standard between bookings. We ask that you bring your own toiletries. We will provide cleaning materials, wipes and hand wash for you own use. To reduce touch points games, books and ornaments will not be available ☹️

There is a secluded patio area with a picnic table, stone fire pit and BBQ for al fresco dining and relaxing. If you are staying longer and need to launder clothes you have access to your own fully equipped laundry area right next to the cottage.

This is a “Tiny House” so ONE SMALL dog or cat e.g. Boston Terrier, Jack Russell etc by prior arrangement only. @£5 per day, payment through BACS, details to be given to us at time of booking. Unbooked pets WILL be subject to a charge, as we need extra time for thorough cleaning. Pet owners must bring a bed, blankets, dishes, poop bags etc and are responsible for their pet in the property and in the surrounding area, especially during lambing and nesting seasons.

The cottage is cleaned thoroughly between each guest to a high standard.

Location

Sandwick, Shetland, United Kingdom

Situated in the South Mainland of Shetland. Close to stunning beaches and the island of Mousa and it’s Iron Age Broch built by the Picts c. 100 BC. Coastal walks nearby, local cafe, shop, Visitor Centre, hotel with occasional dining, swimming pool and honesty box cake cupboard! Shetland is fantastic for bird watchers, nature lovers and cetacean spotting, we’ve been privileged with the presence of Orcas for a couple of years with regular sightings. The quiet roads are great for cyclists, bike hire is available locally. Water sports including kayaking are popular and there are small leisure centres dotted all over the islands.
Shetland is rich in Viking heritage including our fire festivals. The largest is Up Helly Aa held on the last Tuesday in January, it’s a spectacular event. Whether it’s archeology, geology, music, cloudscapes, sport, birds, beaches, peace and quiet or socialising in the towns boutique cafes, restaurants and bars......there is something for everyone in Shetland.

We are unobtrusive hosts but can meet you at the property if requested. Shetland is a fantastic place to be outdoors, we love running and walking and feel very fortunate to live here. We are also lucky to belong to 2 naughty, but adorable pugs, Mabel and Betty.
