About Brekka Lodge

This superior self catering accommodation provides a hallway, dining kitchen and lounge on the ground floor and two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. The beautiful coastal location, in the south mainland of Shetland has stunning unrestricted sea views, ideal for those who love the sound of the ocean waves.

Brekka Lodge is well equipped for an enjoyable self catering holiday and centrally located only 10 minutes from Lerwick and 20 minutes from Sumburgh.  The competitive booking fees include all bills, free wifi, bedding, towels and a welcome pack of local produce. Brekka Lodge is the perfect base to explore Shetland's unique, fascinating natural environment or to simply kick back and relax.

The dining kitchen is fully equipped with a double electric oven, gas hob, dishwasher, integrated fridge freezer, toaster, coffee machine, kettle, food processor and microwave. The kitchen table seats 6 people. The lounge has a three, two and one seater leather suite with dual aspect views towards the sea to the east over looking the isle of Bressay. There is also a Freeview TV with integrated DVD player and a CD player/radio. 

The master bedroom (3.6mx5.2m) has a king bed and the second bedroom (3.0mx5.2m) can have either twin beds or a super king sized bed.

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 community hall, pier, marina, church, a craft studio and two knitwear shops (farm shop and cafe opening early summer 2017). 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.


The perfect place if you just want to relax, but also ideal as a base to explore the islands. The lodge is well equipped, warm and comfortable with great views. The sort of place that you want to keep secret so that you can be sure of getting back again.

My third visit to Brekka Lodge - superb, as ever. Very comfortable, very clean, everything just right for a visit to the incredible Shetland Islands

Lovely home away from home, can't imagine a better place to stay.

Brekka Lodge is an extremely comfortable, well appointed, and beautifully located home away from home. Everything we needed was provided, including beautiful views of the sea from the house and perfect weather (weather not guaranteed). It's a short walk down to the beach where we saw seals and the lime kiln ruins. The house is just a few minutes from Lerwick in the quiet countryside. We rarely saw a vehicle on the road but frequently saw the sheep and ponies in adjacent fields. We were five adults and found Brekka Lodge an ideal place for our week's vacation. I can't wait to return to Shetland and stay here again.

we had a fantastic stay

Brekka Lodge offers first class accommodation in a stunning location with sea views. The lounge is comfortably furnished and offers beautiful views out to sea. A TV and DVD player are provided, as well as a selection of books about Shetland. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need when self-catering and included a welcome pack of milk,butter, tea,coffee, oatcakes and chocolate brownies. Upstairs there are 2 large bedrooms and a bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle. Everything is very well maintained and immaculately clean. From the garden behind the lodge it is a short walk down to a small beach. Brekka Lodge is an excellent base for exploring Shetland and is only a few minutes from the main road and is only a 10 minute drive from Lerwick. The owners have thought of everything to ensure their guests have an enjoyable stay and I had such a good time that I have booked a return visit.
