Read on for what Annie's Place offers you as a guest!
Annie's Place is a ground floor level apartment within the former St Magnus Kirk Manse, built in 1761. We are on a private lane in the peaceful, historic village of Palace, Birsay, on Orkney's West Mainland; an ideal location for a relaxing holiday. You can walk directly from the doorstep along dramatic coastlines, paddle in the sea, cycle, fish, or travel to view all that Orkney's scenery, history, and wild life has to offer. Our bench on the shoreline of Birsay Bay is perfect for seeing amazing sea views, wonderful sunsets and, if you are lucky, the Aurora! You can watch for seals and a myriad of seabirds! There is also the convenience of the adjacent village shop and Birsay Bay Tearoom just up the road.
The two bedroom apartment is suitable for guests of all ages, meets modern standards, and is regularly re-decorated and upgraded with quality bedding and furniture. The cost of £560-£630 per week (depending on time of year) is fully inclusive. We also welcome small to medium sized dogs, with a small charge to cover additional cleaning costs. Free parking is available. We have been awarded a Short-Term Lets Licence by Orkney Island Council so you can book now or into the future with assurance that all health and safety requirements are being met in Annie's Place.
