Westhall Cottage Self Catering
Completed in January 2010 Westhall Cottage is a two bedroom self catering cottage. To make a booking click here.
The cottage was re-constructed on the footprint of an original But and Ben cottage originally constructed in the 1830's, which now has an extension to the rear. It's furnished to the highest standards with hardwood flooring throughout, and is fully insulated / central heated.
There is ample parking for at least two vehicles on our tarred driveway / parking areas.
Westhall cottage was originally referred to as the "offices for the big house", being accommodation for the family who worked on the farm. It has been sympathetically rebuilt in a style acceptable to the Listed Building Planning authorities, and has excellent facilities to make your holiday in Shetland one to remember.
The Cottage has views to the east over to the Island of Bressay and to the west over the Sands of Sound beach (see inset picture above).
Sit enjoying a glass of wine on the patio's picnic table on a summers evening, listen to the sounds of the sea lapping onto the shore, the tirricks and gannets diving for fish and smell the fresh seaweed lying on the rocks. Hear the seals talking to one another in the late evening or early morning and just relax!
Surrounded by all this wildlife and farm animals while only 5 minutes drive from the centre of Lerwick, where else would you want to spend your summer holiday?
