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.
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.
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.
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.
Our first visit to Shetland and we are hooked!! Had a wonderful week. Brekka Lodge has been a real home from home and we have love staying here. Thank you Sheila for welcoming us and providing everything we needed.
Our first visit to Shetland and what a wonderful experience, we will definately be back! Brekka Lodge is a fantastic place to stay and we didn't want for anything. Thank you to George and Sheila for providing a lovely home form home.
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
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.
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.
Brekka Lodge is a rare find; a really well equipped, comfortable, clean house in a fabulous location. Ideally placed, 15 minutes from Lerwick and half an hour from Sumburgh, it is also 5 minutes walk from a rocky beach with resident seal. During our stay in September, the house was always warm. It is exceptionally well equipped throughout; kitchen utensils, laundry, local information, toys and baby equipment. However, it is the little things that make a holiday cottage a real home from home and Sheila and George provide all these:- milk, butter and homemade chocolate cake in the fridge, oatcakes, fresh flowers on the kitchen window sill, foam bath, tissues, coffee, tea, condiments etc. The bedrooms are large and they need to be to fit in the huge, comfortable beds and ample storage. Our 2 year old grandson loved the big bath and the bath toys. My abiding memory of Brekka Lodge will be the view from the living room window towards Bressay and Noss, especially as the sun rose. It is a very special place.
Many thanks for a lovely peaceful and refreshing holiday, we look forward to our return to Brekka Lodge in 2017.
Thank you for another excellent stay! Hope to see you again later this year. Excellent accommodation and faultless owners!
