Idyllic Ness beach view over Yell Sound. A gravel track takes you to a secluded private house. Spacious en-suite room and conservatory with access to garden and sea-views . Spend time otter spotting, and seals and seabirds in abundance. Guests are welcome to use my gym.
Our Laundry / Utility room has limited facilities to prepare (ready) meals. Not suitable for full-on cooking.

The space
The original part of the house is an old Croft house, dating back to the 1850ies. Last 20 years the house first got the guest-room extension with en-suite and conservatory. A Utility-room and garage were to follow and now the house also has a large open Living-room on the seaward side of the house.
The house sits right on top of one of eleven of Shetland' s Tombolo's, double-sided beaches connecting a small island to the mainland. Great for a short walk and for watching wildlife. Seals, otters and many breading birds call it home.

A local shop at Ulsta, the ferry terminal will provide all basics. Yell also has a well appointed little museum in Burravoe, it serves teas and cakes. The Mid Yell Diner, LJ's offers meals. In Aywick you can get lost in Yell's famous shop, locally know as "Mary's". If you can't find it there you don't need it....
