A self-catering Shetland croft house by the sea. In the pretty crofting settlement of Reawick, this traditional house has been thoughtfully restored and beautifully furnished to create a snug, rural bolthole. Quiet, cosy and full of character.
North Town Croft House is homely, calming and very comfortable. There should be everything you need. The house sleeps four: two in a big double bedroom and two in a small bunkroom. There’s a bright, spacious dining kitchen and a cosy sitting room with multifuel stove. Ideal as a romantic hideaway for two, or for a family holiday for four.
North Town is not a modern house with glossy finishes. It’s old and quirky and if you like character, cosiness and a mix of old and new things, you’ll feel quite at home. In winter the house is very cosy, with lots of woollen blankets and fleeces to keep you warm. Get a teapot brewing on the stove and snuggle up with a good book. Wrap up and step outside in the depths of a winter’s night and you will see millions of stars and even the Northern Lights.
In the summer time, you can enjoy very long hours of daylight - as much as 18 hours - and some surprisingly warm days with amazing light, big skies and beautiful colours. Expect a lot of different weather in one day at any time of year, so come prepared!
Staying here will give you peace and quiet. It will give you space to think, read, cook, potter or just sit by the stove with your feet up. Or bring your wetsuit, walking gear and binoculars and get outdoors. You can walk for miles and miles, exploring the intricate coastline and enjoying extraordinary scenery, archaeology and wildlife. Go sea-kayaking, snorkelling or otter-watching and see amazing marine life and abundant seabirds.
We’ve plenty of books in the house, Ordnance Survey maps and guides to help you plan your trips, or a TV when it rains. Whatever you choose to do, we think you will really enjoy your stay, any time of year.
