The peaceful location of the property ensures you the freedom and space to ensure a wonderful holiday. For those with young children we provide a highchair, travel cot, stairgate and a box of toys free of charge.

Brekka Lodge is sited away from the road to ensure safety and there is a picnic area and large lawn playing football, kite flying or sun bathing should the weather permit.  There are lime kilns ruins and a pebble beach just two minutes from the bottom of the garden.

Should the weather be poor there are games, free wifi, DVDs and books provided for your enjoyment. However, Shetland also has much to offer with a network of leisure centres, heritage centres and the recently opened award winning museum in Lerwick, to name a few things to do on a wet day. Check out the comprehensive information pack and Shetland books in the accommodation for other suggestions.

The adjacent village of Cunningsburgh has a farm shop, cafe, community hall, pier, marina, church, a craft studio and two knitwear shops.  Travel a little further and in less than 15 minutes you can be in Lerwick or exploring the Scalloway Castle or on a ferry to the island of Mousa (home of the finest surviving example of a 2,000 year old Iron Age broch) or on the finest example of the shell sand tombolo in Europe, St Ninians Isle.

The central location of our self catering accommodation ensures the whole of the Shetland Islands can be easily accessed during your stay. Previous visitors have managed to explore from Unst to Fair Isle, including a trip to Mousa and Foula, all in 7 days! However, we would recommend if you plan to be this adventurous that you stay at least 14 nights so that you do not go home too tired. Discounts offered for stays of 14 nights or more.

Great Property in Fantastic Location

Stayed for 5 days in March at Brekka and really enjoyed it. Property is very well equipped, warm, very clean and easy to find. Lovely cove a few minutes’ walk away where we saw seals. Short drive north to Lerwick and only 25 mins from the airport. Small shop and cafe (MacKenzies) which can be walked to if needed. Shetland is stunning.

Beautiful Lodge With Amazing Views

My husband and I stayed for a week in July and had a lovely week walking, island hopping and bird watching. We loved Brekka Lodge and Shetland so much that we booked another week in January to see the Lerwick Up Helly Aa. We weren’t disappointed, it was an amazing experience which is a must and Brekka Lodge was the ideal base. Brekka Lodge has everything anyone could ask for. It overlooks the sea and has access to a cove where inquisitive seals swim. The Lodge itself is cosy and Sheila, the host, has thought of everything. There are large comfortable beds and plenty to do on a rainy day. We would love to stay again.

One of the best places we have stayed

Thank you for the lovely accommodation, one of the best we have ever stayed in. All very clean and comfortable. We loved the views of the passing ships and wildlife, the binos never left the table and we hardly watched the television. This was our first trip to Shetland and we loved it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay

Luxurious, comfortable, clean and warm lodge. We couldn't have asked for better accommodation for our week long holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There is a little bay only 2 minutes walk away which is perfect for catching the sunrise.
