  • Kid-friendly
Based on an organic vegetable farm in South Ronaldsay of the Orkney Islands, this charming bell tent is located on rolling, green hills overlooking the North Sea and is the perfect rental for those yearning for adventure and to unwind in breathtaking natural beauty. Here, guests can experience drifting off to sleep as the soothing lapping of the North Sea waves hits the shore before waking up to the sights and sounds of a 200-year-old farm. The tent can accommodate up to four guests with the hosts able to arrange bed configurations according to the guests’ preferences using single or double mattresses. Each futon comes with soft, cozy linens while the floor has been fitted with large rugs that ensure a comfortable night sleep. As there is no electricity in the tent, it is kept warm thanks to the wood-burning stove with firewood provided and guests may use the lanterns and candles to create an authentic camping ambiance. Bedding is an additional £5 for guests visit, per extra person. Please note that pets are not permitted in this bell tent.

Guests have access to an array of shared facilities including the kitchen that comes complete with a two-burner stove, a microwave oven, a kettle, a toaster, and a refrigerator while the bathrooms feature showers with hot water, toilets, and hand basins. Guests can find a peaceful spot to read in the conservatory or they can head down to Eastside Beach, which is only a five-minute walk away, and take in the fresh sea breeze.

This ecological and organic farm faces south and east and overlooks sandy bays and sea-cliffs in the Scottish countryside in South Ronaldsay, the Orkney Islands, where there is nothing but nature, peace, space, and sky. This property is two miles away from the closest village that offers ferries back and forth between the Scottish mainland and 13 miles from the main island town. The buildings on the farm are 200 years old and have been renovated using local, traditional and sustainable materials. The land has been sensitively landscaped with areas set aside for conservation and areas specifically for tree planting.
