Annie’s Place is a self-catering holiday apartment within a traditional, listed Orkney Church Manse (built in 1761), warm and cosy, with everything you need for a relaxing break. The main sitting room has a leather sofa and two leather armchairs for your comfort.
Paintings by Scottish artists with Orkney in mind make Annie’s Place warm and comfortable surroundings. The bookshelf features Orkney interests; dig into a sailor’s chest for family games, jigsaws and toys. BT broadband Wi-Fi, CD player, TV and radio are provided if the weather deserts you.
Annie's Place is at street level with a single step at the entrance. It has Visit Scotland’s level 3 mobility award, and with no internal steps it is ideal for elderly or infirm visitors.
There is a well appointed kitchenette with a small fridge/freezer and washer/dryer and dining area to accomodate up to 4 guests. Or you can walk along the garden path and enjoy your meal sitting on the shoreline bench.
The bathroom has a modern suite and is fully tiled. Wake up to the day with an hot shower, or unwind at the end of it in a relaxing bath: electricity is inclusive in your charge.
There are two bedrooms, one double and one twin. Each has been recently re- decorated and carpeted; modern furniture and coordinated bed linen and curtains bring you right up to date. Full mains electric fire alarm system has been installed.
New double-glazed windows throughout the apartment, new kitchen worktops, sink and cooker with extractor fan take care of the basics and make Annie’s Place great to come home to after long summer Orkney days.
Annie's Place, as part of The Old Manse, is a listed building and we have very recently restored the outside with a lime-plaster covering which is typical of 18th century Scottish buildings. We also commisioned a date stone (1761) from a local sculptor for above Annie's Place front door, the original entrance to the Old Manse. You can read all about these upgrades and see photos in Our Blog posts : Facelift for Annie's Place! and New Date Stone
