We had a wonderful week in Shetland and to come back to Holmfield each afternoon was just lovely. You have made a beautiful home from home for folks to stay and thought of everything to make it comfortable - from the lovely furnishings to the books on the shelves. We really appreciated the attention to detail! There is so much to see and we didn't even tick 5 on the walks in our little book - so we definately need to come back again! Sending our best wishes to you and Michael.

We enjoyed everythingin this house, so well composed, and we tried to enjoy every spot of natural beauty such as beaches, lochs, valleys and rocks along the shore as well archaeological sites. Don't miss the seals nearby lingering on their beach on lovely summer days as well as puffins at Sumburgh Head. Great pleasure for both of us.

We've had a really wonderful time - could easily stay another week, and more, and still not do all the things we'd like to do.
The islands are beautiful and Holmfield is the perfect place to stay. Thank you for creating such a comfortable and beautiful place to start and end each day (and wait out the rain on wednesday!).
All the best Jules and John

We have had a wonderful week. The house was so comfortable it made us feel at home. The beaches, the views, our walks, we have all fallen in love with Shetland.

Lovely to be back in Burra and staying in such a comfortable house with wonderful views and everything we could possibly need. Loved Sanik beach, one that we hadn’t known about. Great walks around the headland here and our favourite, Kettlaness.
Thank you Gill & Mike, what a lovely place.
Best wishes, Alison and David

We’ve had a lovely holiday exploring Shetland. First week with our two boys. So much fun spotting puffins and doing spectacular coastal walks, especially Hermaness, well worth the two ferries. Had some lovely dips in the sea at various beaches, Meal probably the favourite.
Many boules competitions too at the end of a busy day.
Glorious seafood from local fish shop – scallops, lobster, crab and Scalloway Hotel – really delicious food too. Great house with everything we could think of for a comfortable stay.
Thank you, best wishes

We had such a lovely time in this beautiful cottage with pony and sea views! Shetland is just so stunning we can’t keep away. We enjoyed old and new favourite walks – St Ninians, Eshaness, Unst, Papa Stour. Thanks to Gill and Mike for everything, especially the cake and late night jewellery lesson! We hope to be back soon.

Both winter and glorious summer experienced here. We’ve met lovely people, breathtaking scenery around every corner and fascinating wildlife. We hope you can tell how much we have enjoyed being here.

It has been a great pleasure and a real privilege to be the first guests staying at Holmfield.
We really enjoyed our week in this beautiful part of Shetland and would like to thank Gill and Mike for all their kindness and hospitality.
We wish them every success in their future ventures and look forward to returning to this lovely house before too long.
