East Denwick Mill sits amidst glorious coastal scenery in a remote, rural spot on the Deerness peninsula of Mainland Orkney just 13 miles from Kirkwall.
As its name suggests, the building was once a mill that has been beautifully refurbished to create a most memorable holiday home with the old water wheel still visible in the garden. Huge picture windows in the sitting room make the very best of the wonderful seascape and allow for wildlife spotting.
The main living accommodation is all open plan downstairs with a bright dining area set up by the window looking out over the surrounding open countryside towards the sea and at the other end of the room is the stylish and very well-equipped kitchen area.
A central staircase leads up to the two spacious and light bedrooms, a double and a twin, that share a chic bathroom with both a walk-in shower and a free-standing bath that is perfect for a long soak.
Extensive green grasslands surround the house and fine evenings can be spent out in the garden where there are beautiful sunsets to admire as well as glorious views towards the islands of Shapinsay, Stronsay and Sanday. In the middle of the summer the days seem to last forever as the island experiences ‘white nights’ when it hardly gets dark at all.
Because of the remote location and north-facing aspect of the Mill it is also in an ideal location for spotting the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) during the winter months.
