We’re delighted to hear how much our guests appreciate our cottages. Scroll through the reviews below to find out what others have to say about Tiffyhall…

  • Karen’s cottage is a wonderful base for visiting archaeological sites and cliff top walks which are not to be missed. It was a cosy retreat after a long day. The cottage was beautifully modernised. It was spacious and the bathroom had both a bath and a walk-in shower. Karen was a very generous host providing a hamper of local produce to start off our stay. We would highly recommend Karen’s cottage to family and friends.

  • A beautiful home in tranquil surroundings. Warm and comfortable, beautifully maintained home. Karen and Colin are perfect hosts who make you feel very welcome. Already planning the next trip up. The home was well stocked and definitely a home away from home. We had fresh eggs from the resident hens, which were delicious, and my partner devoured the fresh baked scones with clotted cream. Cannot rate highly enough. Well worth a stay.

  • So we arrived to a great welcome from Karen, including scones, jam and cream, local bread and oatcakes and a lovely wee bottle of local gin! What a start. Really well outfitted cottage, everything you could possibly need. Sometimes self catering, there’s something you have forgotten, but not here – everything is provided for you. Clear views to the sea from the one bedroom cottage – the curlews, hares and even a sparrow hawk have kept us entertained. About a 10 – 15 min drive to Kirkwall, so not difficult to get to all the sight-seeing areas. Would definitely recommend.

  • We were delighted with our stay at Tiffyhall which turned out to be a brilliant base to explore from. We were greeted warmly on our arrival by Karen and Colin who as it turns out is a brilliant baker of the lightest scones we’ve ever tasted! The cottage was just great with all our needs catered for and really comfortable. On entering the kitchen we noticed a very generous welcome pack of goodies on the table including eggs, cheese, local gin and those yummy scones with some cream and raspberry jam to smear all over(the scones that is!). Anyhow we had a wonderful week exploring Orkney with it’s magnificent history and scenery, we even managed to get three consecutive days of glorious sunshine. The only downside was that one week wasn’t long enough but we were comforted with the fact that after a lovely cup of tea and good craic with Karen and Colin on the Friday evening we escaped home with that magic scone recipe!

  • My father and I really enjoyed our stay on Orkney. Tiffyhall has a cosy atmosphere and is well equipped. The owners Karen and Colin were very accommodating. The freshly made scones, jam and cream on arrival was a really nice touch! The location of Tiffyhall is ideal, just out of the way which ensures peace and quiet, but only a 15 minute drive from the city of Kirkwall.

    Very clean, cosy and private. Great place to use as a base to explore from. Colin and Karen both came to make sure we were ok and check if we needed anything. The cottage had everything we needed to cook, clean and wash clothes etc. Can’t recommend Tiffyhall enough.

  • We loved the accommodation and the new hosts. Firstly the accommodation – it is as per the description – it is big, comfortable and has everything you need for a stay as a family or a small group. The location is a rural/farm setting – peaceful and a lovely place to start and end your day of sight-seeing. When we stayed, the new owners had only recently taken over – they are really nice people who went out of their way to ensure we felt welcomed and had everything we needed to enjoy our time on the island. If it sounds like we loved our time here – we did!
