Fia Cottage

Hillwell, Quendale, Shetland Islands

Sleeps 1-4


Fia Cottage in Hillwell, Quendale, in the Shetland Islands, offers wonderful self catering accommodation in a beautifully decorated cottage. The cottage is snug and cosy, with home comforts at hand along with all the modern conveniences you could ever require on a Shetland holiday. The cottage is ideally situated for hillwalking, cycling, bird watching and fishing at the nearby Peerie Spiggie Beach, where you can catch sea trout for your dinner. St Ninian’ Isle, Jarlshof, Sumburgh Head and the ferry to Mousa are all within 10 minutes’ drive.Our stunning holiday cottage is perfect for a spontaneous break away. The front door is used mainly for access to the enclosed garden but may be used as your main entrance if preferred. The porch itself is quite small, but visitors have told us that they loved having their morning cup of tea in there.

The staircase leads up to a large bedroom and a spacious open-plan bedroom. Both have quality beds, mattresses and Saunderson’s ‘retro’ bed-linen. A good night’s sleep is especially important when on holiday – the clean fresh Shetland air is known to make you just that little bit more tired than usual after a long day out
