Tiffyhall Cottage self catering

Self Catering

Deerness, Kirkwall, Orkney, KW17 2QH

    Both holiday cottages at Tiffyhall are situated in the parish of Deerness and are part of a working Croft. The Croft over looks Newark Bay and the Pentland Firth to the South and the cottage has views of farmland on both sides.

    Whether you are looking for a romantic retreat, a rambler’s delight or a family holiday home, Tiffyhall holiday cottages are the perfect place for you to enjoy Orkney and its Isles.

    The cottages  are part of a croft which is one of the oldest in the parish and was part of a working farm once owned by the Earl of Zetland. It fell into disrepair and stood empty for 50 years until it was fully renovated and extended in 2008, with the original cottage being transformed into a comfortable holiday cottage which sleeps 4 and if required has access to a cot bed for babies and infants up to 5 years. In addition there is also an attached barn which has been converted into a smaller holiday cottage which has one bedroom containing a double bed, however there is a recess on the first floor containing one single bed allowing the cottage to accommodate up to 3 people and there is also access to a cot bed for babies and infants up to 5 years.  Both cottages are surrounded by farm land and are close to the Brough of Deerness, the Gloup and the Mull Head RSPB reserve.

    The Covenanters memorial is also in the parish and for those of you who like walking all 4 sites are in walking distance as is good quality coastal walks. In addition, being located on Mainland Orkney, the World Heritage sites of Maes Howe, Ring of Brodgar, Skara Brae and numerous other sites of interest are a short distance by car as is the airport and ferry terminals at Stromness, Kirkwall and Pentland Ferries short sea crossing route at St Margaret’s Hope.

    There is a local shop, sub post office and fuel pump in Deerness.

    Tiffyhall Holiday cottage sleeps 4 consists of 2 bedrooms, one with double bed and the other with twin beds. A Kitchen diner, separate lounge, bathroom with separate shower cubicle, central heating throughout the cottage and parking for up to two vehicles.

    Tiffyhall holiday cottage sleeps 2-3 consists of 1 bedroom with double bed, recess on first floor with single bed, open plan kitchen, diner and lounge with log burner. Shower room, central heating throughout the cottage and parking for one vehicle.

    Thl cottages sit in eight acres and guests are encouraged to walk around the land and use as short cuts to Newark bay. Certain times of the year we have seasonal pick you own vegetables grown in our kitchen garden and in the grounds of the cottage there is a herb garden and guests are invited to help themselves for cooking.
