"Dear Rosemary,

Thank you - we had a really wonderful time at your cottage. We explored quite a few of the islands, including Hoy and we were very lucky with the weather. We really felt at peace in Orkney and hope to return again soon. Your cottage is very special!

With kind regards."

"Hello Rosemary

We have finally returned home after our wonderful holiday on mainland Orkney and the Scottish highlands. What a wonderful journey.

We just wanted to thank you so much for use of your wonderful cottage - it really felt like our home for the week. You had thought of everything to make us welcome and comfortable. We are totally hooked on the  beautiful Orkney isles and are very keen to return and would love to stay in your cottage once again.

Many thanks"

“Rosemary's place is just wonderful. She upgraded us just before we arrived to #40 instead of #36 so that's what I'm reviewing. Rosemary has a fabulous talent for creating warm, inviting, stylish and cosy decor with everything in the property you can think of. The location right on the harbour is stunning and a perfect place from which to sit and watch the boats or the storms depending on the weather. I can't recommend Rosemary's place or her as a host enough! Thank you Rosemary.”

“What a fantastic house. Right on the harbour side, interesting drive to get to it, through Stromness, fantastic location. House is better in real life than in the pictures, and the pictures are amazing. Fantastic hosts, lovely touches throughout the house, cannot recommend highly enough. We had lovely weather the week we were here, but what a place :)”

“Super cosy, warm and adorable spot right in the center of Stromness and right on the water. We absolutely adored the place and wished we didn’t have to leave! Will hopefully be back again in the future. Thanks again for everything Rosemary!”

“Outstanding amenities and absolutely everything well equipped and catered for. Lots of lovely finishing touches making it homely and cosey. Rosemary has obviously put a lot of effort and thought to make her guests feel at home and I was blown away by the beauty of the place and not to mention my own private bothy which was the cherry on the cake. I felt like I was staying with an old friend and definitely felt a personal touch with all different teas and radox bath products. I have recently started slimming world and was amazed to see there were low calorie sprays for cooking with and flavoured teas to help me on my healthy eating plan. Cannot fault this place. I will most definitely be back to enjoy Anderson cottage on the beautiful Orkney islands.”

“This was a quaint and tranquil place to spend a few days. The bothy by the sea was the perfect place to relax and recharge the batteries, assisted by a good DVD box set and roaring fireplace. The kitchen was well equipped, LOTS of tea!!! The icing on the cake was the numerous candles throughout the property, and the Christmas decorations were a nice touch!”

“18 South End was everything we wanted and more. My friends and I came up to the Orkneys looking for a quiet retreat, and we found one--absolutely stunning views of the water and the weather coming in from Rosemary's gorgeous sunroom; the bedrooms were all lovely and comfortable, MORE than enough room for three people and we basically didn't want to leave. It was also very toasty and warm, even in November. I would like to use this place every time I come to the area from here on out--it was that good. Thanks Rosemary!”

 “Rosemary has provided everything you might need and much more. Enjoy the vast selection of teas and coffees whilst looking over the harbour and sea. The location is perfect to explore Stromness on foot and the house is cosy without being small. We loved it.”

"We loved our seaside stay at Rosemary’s. What an incredible value for money. The place is absolutely huge and gorgeously appointed, with new appliances and plenty of warmth. We spent most of our time in the conservatory overlooking the water, and were sad indeed to leave that view. If I’m ever back in Stromness, I will be booking this place again!"

"Hello Rosemary, 
it might be old news for you, because you hear it very often - but we are absolutely blown away by the cottage. 
Thanks for all the detail and love you put into it. 
However, we managed to leave it from time to time during the day. 🙂 

Thanks again "

"Hello Rosemary,

I just want to say what a wonderful week we had staying at 4 South End.

It is a beautiful, comfortable and wonderfully equipped house in the perfect location for a boat lover like me.

Orkney was as perfect as always and we hope to return before too long and to Anderson`s Harbour Cottages.

With very best wishes and thanks, "

" Dear Rosemary , just a note to say thank you so much for the cottage, we have had a lovely time and the cottage was so homely. We had Orcadian friends round Wednesday evening, and they loved it.....it was like having a mini diner party at home.  Your cottage is very well appointed with everything you could need.....we wanted for nothing. The bothy was great too....chris loved watching the ferry coming in and out!

We are now on the Hamnavoe overnight in preparation for tomorrow mornings sailing.

Thank you once again. "

" Hi Rosemary,

Just a quick note of thanks. The cottage was amazing in all respects- position, cleanliness and facilities within the house, especially in the kitchen! It proved to be an ideal base for us during a very windy, but sunny, week.

I will definitely recommend your cottages to friends and if we return to Stromness, I will be contacting you again

Thanks again, I couldn't have wished for more in a holiday cottage.
Kind regards "
