Lower Midgarth, Orkney Isles - Sleeps 7
Customer Reviews of Lower Midgarth, Orkney Isles - Sleeps 7
Couldn't have asked for a better cottage. For us (7 of us) the location and facilities were perfect. The seperate building with the pool table was a major selling point for my sons. On finding the guitar, drum set and keyboard, they thought they had died and gone to heaven. Getting them to leave the cottage to explore Orkney was difficult. The only slightly down side was a lack of a lock on the utility room with the second shower but perfectly manageable. The key store was a great advantage when we went in seperate directions.
House very good with everything you could want, but broken vacuum cleaner. The only problem we had was we could not get into key safe top get the key. No answer from keyholder/cleaner, no answer from owner and Mackays closed at 5pm.We managed to contact caretaker through locals, fortunately he had a spare key as he could not get into key safe. Without the help of locals there was no way we could know caretaker as his details were left inside house.
"peaceful and pleasurable"
House is extremely comfortable and well-equipped. Orkney is a very windy place, but the garden and outdoor area always has a sheltered spot. Rural Orkney is beautiful and conducive to peace of mind. Can't recommend Lower Midgarth sufficiently highly.
"Superb cottage for a quiet relaxing holiday. "
Well furnished, well appointed and very comfortable. A cot would have been useful. A peaceful place to rest and relax. On the downside, one room had not been cleaned properly, the bedding was dirty and the room was infested with spiders.
