The Georgian Hoose self-catering holiday let in Kirkwall
Licensed under Scotland Short Term Let Civic Government Scotland Act (1982), licence number OR00011F
The Georgian Hoose, 83 Victoria Street, is a charming period home, with a sheltered walled garden, situated in the historic town centre of Kirkwall. Dating to the early 1800s, it retains its original features and is presented as a period dwelling. It is not just accommodation, it is an experience in itself. This is where you can relax and feel like you have stepped back in time. We love it very much, and we hope you will, too.
Since taking over this property in 2018, we have worked to bring it back to its Georgian origin, slating the roof, liming walls, opening up blocked chimneys and reinstating fireplaces, exposing original wooden floors, reinstating dado rails, and so on. It might look quite different to other holiday lets, and therein lies its charm. Here, you can really get away from the stress of the modern world while holidaying in the beautiful Orkney Islands.

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.
