The Georgian Hoose

SELF-CATERING ACCOMMODATION IN KIRKWALL TO OPEN SOON.

We took over The Georgian Hoose, 83b Victoria Street, Kirkwall, in January 2018, and have since then worked to restore it as a period home. This beautiful house, with a sheltered walled garden, dates to the early 1800s and is situated in the historic town centre of Kirkwall.

The transformation back to its former Georgian glory is now under way, with a new slated roof, blocked chimneys reopened and modern wallpapers and carpets removed to reveal the original wooden floors.

Sleeps: 4-5, with a first-floor double bedroom, two second floor single bedrooms, and a ground floor  dining room which can be set up as an additional bedroom.

Booking: Not yet open, but will open as soon as we are ready.

The Georgian Hoose Garden

The Georgian Hoose Garden lies a few paces further down a secluded leafy lane. From the house and courtyard, continue to your left down the lane between hedges, until you see the Georgian Hoose Garden through the rose arch on the right.

Here, you are sheltered from the wind. The garden is a sun-trap, and a sanctuary for flowers and plants that would otherwise be blasted by the Atlantic breeze.

The Georgian Hoose Garden is for the private use of guests staying in The Georgian Hoose.
