Escape from The Modern World

Posted on

Mingro, Stronsay, Orkney - Available for holiday lets from 1st May 

Mingro is all about escaping the modern world. There is no TV, no broadband and occasionally you get a mobile phone signal standing in front of the wood burner. Take a few good books, watch the sea, walk the sands, and immerse yourself in the delights of nature. Positioned at one end of Rothiesholm beach, which has white sands, clear waters and is a gentle horseshoe in shape. Most days you have the whole beach to yourself occasionally interrupted by the odd dog walker or seal!

The house comprises of kitchen/dining area with multi fuel burner, bathroom with shower, living room with multi fuel burner, double bedroom and store room. In addition to the multi fuel burners heat is provided by programmed electric radiators.

We had a fabulous stay The Old Manse, the place itself is lovely and very clean, with great attention to detail and beautiful gardens. Absolutely loved the decor and the room we stayed in was so spacious. The breakfast was amazing with a wide variety and not to mention the delicious cakes. Neale & Linda were great hosts offering advice on places to visit even down to coffee shops along the way, which we wouldn't have found on our own! They even gave us some cake to takeaway with us on our journey, which was very thoughtful. We would highly recommend The Old Manse and would definitely stay there again. A delightful experience with a personal touch
