Luxurious self-catering accommodation in the heart of Neolithic Orkney
Harefields, a superb, individually designed and very spacious house, with private driveway, is finished to a very high standard. Nestling on its own, in a lovely panoramic site of 4 acres, it commands stunning views over the lochs of Stenness and Harray, and important archaeological sites such as The Ring of Brodgar, Standing Stones of Stenness and Maeshowe.
Sleeping up to eight people, with two en-suites, one family bathroom, a large well-designed, quality kitchen with dining area, and two sitting rooms, one with a large picture window and multi fuel stove, it is an ideal escape for a large family group or a spot of luxury for two.
Take it easy and enjoy a game of table tennis in our new garage, or exercise your dog in our 4-acre field. Ideally situated for walking, bird watching, photography, painting and easy access to archaeological sites, fishing lochs, towns and shops, there is a wealth of discoveries to be made.
