Greenfield Cottages, Greenfield, Carness Road, Kirkwall, Orkney, KW15 1UE

Description of the cottage holiday

Greenfield Cottages are a group of 5 cottages, which we have sympathetically renovated from former farm buildings. Greenfield dates back to the 1800’s when it was a quite a substantial farm with considerable acreage to its name. We have endeavoured to retain as much of the ‘old world’ feel as possible in today’s Self Catering market.

Best Features

All five cottages have been renovated and equipped to a high standard and we pride ourselves in providing our guests with a tranquil setting and quality cottages for their holiday stay. The cottages are equipped with all that you will need for a trouble free break in Orkney, leaving you free to explore our many must-see sites.

Greenfield is just over one mile from Kirkwall. All the local amenities are in Kirkwall as well as the newly built Travel Centre, where you will find information on our numerous historical sites and tourist attractions that are on offer in Orkney. At Greenfield you are also five minutes away from the ferries that provide excursions to the outer islands.

Orkney has an abundance of historical sites, some of which are the most important in Europe. The landscape and scenery is spectacular both on a fine day and when the winds create seascapes, which are breathtaking. Orcadian people are helpful and welcoming as well as very proud of our heritage and are keen to help visitors experience the very best of Orkney.

Sleeps: from 2 to 4

Cottage Review:  

We stayed in The Granary and enjoyed the accommodation very much. We were pleased with the high standard of decor and facilities throughout. We were warm and comfortable; we had a bathroom each, one of which was ensuite. The kitchen facilities suited us very well. We loved the location and the views and the close proximity to Kirkwall, where we could shop for local produce. We would book Greenfield Cottages again. This property is very well managed and good value for money.

Cottage Review:  

I loved the Granary cottage I reserved, it had two good bedrooms (One Double ensuite, other twin beds) and felt very homely, exceptionally well appointed and clean as a whistle.

It's a nice walk in to Kirkwall down the shore front although no street lights towards the end of the shore when coming back at night.

I'm going to go back to see the charms of Orkney again and this is again where i will base myself.

Cottage Review:  

Greenfield Cottage this is ideal for a single person or a couple. All the facilities were on hand and the location was very good. Picuresque and quiet but near enough Kirkwall for a night out.

Recommend the cottage whole heartedly

Cottage Review:  

The renovated buildings are attractive on the outside and stylishly modernised internally to a high standard. Spacious and well equiped apartment. Although part of a complex of such apartments ours felt individual and as if it were the only one there, no noise at all even though the others were occupied. Just outside Kirkwall but still an easy 15 min walk, its the best of both, almost in town almost out in the country. We really enjoyed our stay and will revisit in the future. Owner is cheerful and helpful but leaves you in peace too to enjoy your break away.

Really nice little complex of cottages, very private, rural setting conveniently close to Kirkwall (approx. 15 min walk) and close to the shore. We were in Stables 2 - very clean, comfy and well equipped. Loads of hot water. Helpful owners.

We visited Orkney in July and found the cottages to be ideally located to see the island. The cottage facilities were excellent and the welcome pack was a bonus. We have already recommended it to friends and family.

Cottage Review:  

The small complex of renovated farm buildings is set on the farthest edge of Kirkwall, out at the end of development. It's secluded, quiet, yet modern and utterly comfortable. Appreciated the outstanding hospitality of the hosts, and the comfortable pace at which life proceeds. A sound sleep every night, and good eating with local fare. I slept six nights there, and wished I could stay longer. The cottage had every furnishing I could want, including a complete kitchen. Cooked in all the time- only ate one meal out. A very pleasant walk into town, and so much great history around to visit. I would go back in an instant.

Make up of party:  A single man, trying to escape a frenzied urban life and get some paperwork done. Definitely the perfect place for one or two.
