Situated in a tranquil location with unrestricted views west over Sandsound Voe, the cottage was built in the 1890s and has been completely renovated, tastefully decorated and furnished to provide a cosy, comfortable base for your Shetland holiday.
An automatic washing machine/tumbledrier is situated in the entrance porch, with a chest freezer. We provide an iron and ironing board with a convenient line outside and airer inside.
The well-equipped kitchen is fully fitted with hand-made units, an electric cooker, fridge, microwave and adjacent dining area with pine table and chairs.
The whitewashed walls in the sittingroom contrast with the wooden floor and there is a cast-iron peat stove so you can light a welcoming fire, with peat and kindling provided. There are two comfortable sofas, one of which is a sofa bed. There is satellite TV, a VCR and CD/radio and we also provide a selection of Shetland-themed books, CDs and videos..
The bathroom has a bath, electric shower, a fan heater and heated towel rail, with all towels provided.
The bedroom has twin beds with abundant drawer and hanging space, with all bedding provided.
The thick stone walls of the cottage and traditional small windows ensure it's warm and cosy. Velux rooflights give a bright, airy feel to the public rooms. The cottage is heated throughout by electric storage heaters, with an extra electric heater in the bedroom.
On the paved/grassy area in front of the cottage you can cook on the barbeque or simply sit at the picnic bench and enjoy a sunset over the voe.
The beach immediately in front of the cottage is one of many peaceful places to walk in the area. Seals are regular visitors to the voe, birdlife is plentiful and you may spot the elusive otter right in front of your window.
Despite its tranquillity Sandsound is only 1 mile off the A971 main road West. The cottage has its own private drive and you can park right outside.
All heating costs are included in the price.
