  Cauldhame is awaiting grading for green tourism.  

Policy statement
We, Jim and Anne, have made a commitment to ensure that Orkney offers our children and grandchildren the same rich & pure environment we enjoyed as children.
To demonstrate our commitment to the environment we have embarked on several initiatives in both our farming and tourist accommodation enterprises.
Our cottage Cauldhame, was completely renovated and opened for business in June 2006. We have been graded by VisitScotland and were delighted to achieve 4 stars. We are committed to achieve and maintain a bronze category in Green Tourism.

Welcome to Cauldhame ....

Cauldhame ExteriorCauldhame is a luxury five-bedroomed traditional cottage and steading conversion.

It is located in a stunning elevated position on the beautiful Orkney island of South Ronaldsay - connected to the Orkney Mainland by the Churchill Barriers.

Set in its own 80 acres of peaceful farmland, secure and away from it all, in 2006, the cottage and steading were tastefully renovated to provide quality accommodation for up to eight guests.

Enjoy Orkney in comfort and style

Exterior ViewHomely, and finished to an extremely high standard, Cauldhame retains the original, traditional stone features throughout, as well as oak and flagstone floors with underfloor heating. Visitors can also use the enclosed solid fuel stove for extra warmth, or simply for the atmosphere of a burning fire.

The property has five bedrooms, a fully fitted dining kitchen, a lounge with enclosed stove, garden room, bathroom with shower and shower room.

Cauldhame Decking and ViewThe panoramic coast view can be soaked up from the stunning garden room with gable-end window and mezzanine above. Enjoy the long, light Orkney nights and beautiful sunsets and sunrises from this expanse of glass.  

Outside, decking in the garden sets off the garden furniture and barbeque, while the yard offers private parking and a secure area for children.
