Beach House

Hoswick, Sandwick, Shetland ZE2 9HL

Business Details

Beach House is a traditional island house of the period in the former fishing village of Hoswick, Shetland.

Beach House is a traditional (c.1895) two-storey typical Scottish highland/island house of the period, in the former fishing village of Hoswick, in the district/parish of Sandwick in the South Mainland of Shetland. It is approximately 15 miles south of the capital, Lerwick, and 12 miles north of the airport at Sumburgh.

Beach House has two double bedrooms upstairs, and one twin bedroom downstairs - so could accommodate up to six people depending on sleeping arrangements. There is one bathroom (renewed in 2013) with bath, shower, wash-basin and toilet - so access to that should be taken into consideration for the number of people sharing a booking.

There is a comfortable lounge, with TV (internet-capable, for example for BBC i-player) and DVD player, telephone and broadband access (WiFi and/or cable). There is a well-equipped eat-in kitchen extension on the back, with a large window looking over the bay, with electric cooker, fridge, washing machine, kettle, microwave and various other items. The water and space heating is by electricity.

There is an open fire in the lounge, fuel is not supplied but can be bought from various outlets (for authenticity you can buy peat). The house is double-glazed and insulated, and there are additional heaters in the unlikely event that guests need them.

There is an extensive garden front and back, with access to the adjacent field. The house is 60 metres from the beach, accessed by a path from the front garden gate. These houses were built fronting on to the old beach road, which is no longer used and is now just a grassy footpath, narrowed by recent fencing of adjacent fields.

Enquiries are welcome at any time. Note that we to rent by the week, Saturday to Saturday, so that consecutive bookings fit without gaps. However we can discuss other arrival/departure days especially outside of the busy summer season. The minimum rental period is 1 week (whatever the occupancy).
