Just returned to Melbourne, Australia, from Shetland. Fia Cottage is a gorgeous cottage set in a lovely remote position, not too far south of Lerwick, and hostess, Christine, is a delightfully friendly lady. There are so many great places to visit, walks to go on and fabulous beaches near Fia Cottage. I loved the place and want to return!
Gorgeous, beautiful, cosy cottage in a great location!
We stayed at three different houses on our trip to Shetland, and I can honestly say we left the best until last!
Fia cottage is perfect and has to be the most well equipped holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. A wonderful welcome basket and the means to paint a stone are particularly nice touches. Thank you for the perfect finish to our stay on Shetland
Thank you for a wonderful cottage! The kids had a ball and enjoyed painting the stones – what a great tradition!
Fia Cottage exceeded our expectations in every way and it was the little touches ie games for the children, phone chargers, the lovely welcome basket of food that were so lovely! The cottage was spotless and the wood burning stove was a bonus, as we have one the same at home. The best thing about Fia Cottage was its homeliness – my granddaughters loved the lights in the bathroom and the “touch lights” in the bedrooms! We had a great stay and will be back again
We had a wonderful, two weeks at Fia Cottage – it was a very relaxing atmosphere. Great weather and the cottage provided us with a great base for exploring and a comfy place to stay in for the few hours when it rained. The cottage exceeded our expectations and it was so useful to have washer/dryer and airer. It was good value for money!
Fia Cottage is a beautiful, homely, clean, well equipped cottage. The owners, Christine & Tommy are very friendly people and a delight to know. They have thought of everything you could possibly need to make any holiday complete. Fia Cottage is a home from home and so lovely to come back to after a day of exploring! The neighbours are also very friendly people and are willing to give advice if needed, on places of interest, which is a great help. Overall, we fully recommend Fia Cottage – that’s why we keep coming back from the other side of the world!
Thank you Christine & Tommy!!
Fia Cottage is an absolute gem!! We were met by Christine who was a warm and inviting hostess able to show us how everything worked and answer any questions. The cottage itself is beautifully appointed, immaculately clean, with modern decor and superbly equipped (not only that, but we were met with an excellent “welcome basket” with essentials and treats to get us through the first day). To top it all, we found it to be excellent value. Cant praise the cottage enough and needless to say, I wouldn’t hesitate in staying there again! Many thanks for our stay in the wonderful Fia Cottage! We hope these couple of things will be of use. Best wishes Joan, Eddie and Derek
(This part of the comment is from us to thank Joan, Eddie & Derek for leaving some lovely gifts on their departure. Joan also painted four beautiful stones to add to our collection very generous guests indeed!)
The main reason we chose Fia Cottage for our stay in Shetland was because you had both experienced renting in the UK and had first hand knowledge of what your guest should expect. We had no problems finding the cottage by following your directions and it fully exceeded our expectations. Everything was perfect and good value for money! Thank you for a wonderful week in Fia Cottage – we have enjoyed every second! We had pleasant summer weather all week and visited all the Viking and Neolithic sites there are. We now continue our holiday for one more week in Orkney for further exploring into the viking heritage
We had a lovely time in your beautiful and charming cottage and we loved the proximity of our favourite beaches. The cottage is cosy, very well equipped and has a south facing aspect so when the sun shines it is glorious. The location – walking distance of fabulous beaches. As bird watchers, having a dozen or so ravens roosting on your neighbour’s barn was a dream come true. We will definitely come back and recommend
We’ve been at Fia Cottage before and loved it so much – it’s so clean and beautiful . It’s the perfect place, my heaven on earth and excellent value for money which makes a longer stay possible. We love the welcome hamper. Fantastic neighbours next door too! It’s bright, beautifully situated, lovely garden area with drying green, super outlook from upstairs to the lighthouse, lovely bedding & towels, fantastic shower – what’s not to like? Thanks Christine & Tommy once again for the amazing cottage! We’re already looking at the calendar for next year
