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
We, a family of four with our little dog, had a very comfortable and nice holiday in Fia Cottage. 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. Everything in the cottage is as one can only hope for: clean, well organised and complete, kitchen, dinner table and living room connected. It is easy to travel around the island from the cottage, but within walking distance there are great beaches and the puffins on Sumburgh Head are also very nearby
We have just enjoyed another wonderful holiday at Fia Cottage. We love the location and Fia Cottage is such a comfortable place to come home to at the end of the day. Thank you Christine for making us so welcome. We are already looking forward to our next trip!
On our arrival at Chalet 6 we were made very welcome – we thoroughly enjoyed the new-laid eggs and the Shetland sweets (Sheeps Pirls) and everything was perfectly clean! We had a really lovely week in Chalet 6 – we were enchanted by the view which varied constantly with the changing light and weather. The spiral staircase was rather challenging, but we mastered it! We had some lovely walks from the chalet and shopping was easy, which is important when in self-catering and it was also easy to reach Lerwick or Scalloway if we wanted to eat out
Fia cottage is one of the loveliest I’ve stayed in my travels and your special welcome with eggs, milk, cheese, treats as well as every amenity to make us feel comfortable and ‘at home’ was sincerely appreciated. The kitchen was equipped with everything we could need and the whole cottage was so clean, roomy, bright and private
