Basic loft space above the barn! It is a simple, rustic loft with 2 rooms and a tiny loo. It has a kitchen / dining room with wood-burning stove, dormer window snug and one double bedroom. The loo has no shower which is unusual and why I have priced it so. There are 4 showers downstairs via the main door and balcony - a 5 second walk, these are shared with the campers and glampers. It has a South facing sea view from the balcony. Ideal for couples on an adventures!
The loft benefits from an elevated position on the farm. The view from the balcony is lovely and peaceful as it is set back from the rest of the campsite but still close to the campsite kitchen and dining space if guests want to hang out there with other guests. Wheems is 3 miles from St Margarets Hope Ferry terminal so easy to get to by car, bike or foot for keen walkers. Wheems Organic Farm is an ecological and organic 6 hectare horticulture smallholding producing organic food for a local market. Wheems farm buildings are 200 years old and have been renovated using local, traditional and sustainable materials (although this barn was only built in 1992). Wheems farmland has been sensitively landscaped with areas set aside for conservation, areas carved out with stone dyke walling, and areas of tree planting. Wheems faces south and east on a hillside above sea-cliffs and beaches on South Ronaldsay. On Orkney there is nature, peace, space and sky. Wheems Loft overlooks cliffs and sandy beaches to the South within 5 minutes walk.
South Ronaldsay is a peaceful island, the village St Margarets Hope is 3 miles away where there is a nice restaurant called Robertsons and a lovely art and craft shop called The Workshop & Loft Gallery. We have Tomb of the Eagles on South Ronaldsay and Leila Thompson Tapestry. There are some lovely coastal walks including South Ronaldsay coastal walk which goes along the cliffs and you can reach this from Newark Bay - the beach you can see from Wheems 7 mins walk away.
  • It's a brilliant space. It's rustic as some reviews say, but that's more just it's character. It actually has everything you need and the showers are literally 5 seconds away as noted. Great base from which to explore the islands, but also a great hideaway for when the weather turns. Be sure to have a peak in the gallery.

  • Away from it all spot with beautiful views from the window seat. We needed the log burner even in August but once ti was going it was nice and cosy. Relaxing stay in an interesting part of the world.

  • A unique place, which is what I look for in an Airbnb! Comfortable, cozy, and everything you need to make yourself at home - great views, comfy furnishings, more space than expected. A great base for an unhurried Orkney holiday

  • We had a fantastic week at the Loft in Wheems Cottage and already talking about a return next summer. Relaxing and cosy. Thanks for the warmth and hospitality!

  • This is a lovely cosy little place with everything that you’d need to be a little home from home 😊

  • This is a wonderful place to stay, we were in the loft which is VERY spacious and comfortably 'quirky'. Everything is there that you need along with a few basic supplies and Steven bakes most mornings so fresh bread is available. Family and the staff (friends) are super friendly and always there willing to help and advise on places to visit etc., There is a large space for tents/campers/caravans with some electric hook-ups; they also have some pods, a Yurt and a couple of bell tents to hire. It is at the bottom end of South Ronaldsay so transport of some description is necessary unless walking is your thing!! There is a pedestrian ferry from the Scottish mainland into a small pier a couple of miles from the site (you can see it from Wheems) and that has a bus meeting it each trip but you will have to ask the driver nicely to drop you/pick you up at the end of the road as it runs straight to Kirkwall. St. Margaret's Hope is the nearest town and has all the necessary amenities plus a bus service that goes into Kirkwall transport centre.

  • Beautiful and stylish space, very natural, eco-friendly place to be. Wonderful spot for a holiday on Orkney, would definitely recommend.

  • My short stay at the Loft was great even in meanest Orkneys weather. The location is beautiful and the welcome was warm and thorough (I did not meet the host until the end of the trip, but was shown around by two farm hands - and thanks again for the fresh eggs!). Two hot water bottles under the doona (quilt, bedding, blankets..the word??) were also a pleasant surprise. The Loft was comfortable anyway; with its heater and fireplace and the separate, hot hot shower being only a few steps down from the entrance. PS it was actually a super time to visit the islands...very atmospheric and reasonably unfettered by tourists like me.

    The flat is above our garage . It is a good space and very bright with views over Scapa Flow. The staircase is slightly steeper than normal.The kitchen and shower room are on the ground floor. It is heated by an air source unit. We are about twenty minutes from Kirkwall and ten minutes from St Margaret’s Hope which is where the pentalina ferry comes in. The property is set on the side of a hill with lovely views. There is space for parking and a large garden.
    The area is open plan above our garage with fab views over scapa flow,to the right is Etna Loch very good view as many birds land there.
    We are close to the Churchill barriers, Italian chapel, Orkney wine shop, fossil visitors centre and cafe, sands hotel and restaurant, burray village and shop, St Margaret’s hope with Robertson’s restaurant and cocktail bar.
  • Mark is a great host, set us up well to find the place, met us (in the dark of night!) and provided daytime contact and availability where needed. The venue is modern, ultra warm, clean and eco friendly. There are some really thoughtful touches in the design of the loft that make for a convenient stay, including a raised work space and coat stand. The staircase up the the loft section gives it a very private and cosy feel, the full modern kitchen including full size oven and stove and laundry facility makes it a very credible longer term stay.

  • Pleasant apartment, quiet, well located if you arrive by ferry from St Margaret's Hope, Well laid out, clean, perfect for the nights we spent there! Thanks to Mark and his wife for their welcome!

  • Great place to stay with a nice view.

  • The flat is excellent & has everything that you need. Location is great with a beautiful view; a bit isolated so ideally you need a vehicle, but if you want to see Orkney then you do anyway! Mark and his wife were very pleasant and helpful. A lovely place to stay.
