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
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!)
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
It was lovely to be welcomed personally with explanations about where and how in the cottage, the information booklet, the basket with eggs, chocolates etc were excellent
Although we were placed in the cottage as part of a visit organised through Shetland Wildlife, Fia Cottage was very well organised, clean, beautiful, very comfortable and a great place to spend a cold winter evening – loved it!
I cannot recommend Fia Cottage highly enough. Christine was incredibly welcoming and the cottage did not want for anything. The basket of food was very welcome! Our resident chef specifically told me to pass on to you that he’d never stayed at a self-catering cottage in 70 years that came with everything we needed – the cottage far exceeded our expectations, and I would not hesitate to stay there again. The housekeeping was immaculate and the cottage itself was probably the highlight of our stay on Shetland!
Fia cottage was lovely and felt like a home from home. It was so well equipped – you really have thought of everything! The welcome goodies were much appreciated too. We did lots of exploring and it was nice to return to such a comfortable cottage at the end of every day. It was our first visit to Shetland and we hope to return. We would happily return to Fia Cottage and recommend it to friends. Janis was lovely and very helpful
Fia Cottage is a lovely cottage and well maintained in a quiet location. It is convenient for the airport and with good roads it’s very easy to drive everywhere in Shetland. Everything was very clean and of a really good standard and we felt the welcome and personal touches very good!
I would just like to say that Fia cottage is a real home from home with lots of little thoughtful touches. It’s beautifully done out and well equipped – we loved the little stove! Nice location with beautiful sandy beaches close by. We had a lovely relaxing few days. Thank you very much for delivering Sarah’s phone charger to the hostel, much appreciated
Since we got home we have bored all our friends and colleagues constantly with stories of our wonderful stay on Shetland and in Fia Cottage. Several have said that they now want to go and see for themselves. It goes without saying that we have told them that we know of a very special cottage that they could stay at
