About Gardarlea

Gardarlea is a newly built self catering accommodation property completed in Spring 2023, finished to a very high standard.

It was built by my husband Allan and it is named after our three children. Situated in a quiet residential area and within easy walking distance to Stromness town centre (just a 5 minute walk), the house enjoys spectacular views of the Hoy hills, looking down Scapa Flow and over towards Orphir.

Allan, an experienced joiner, has custom made all the beds, bed side tables and some furniture in the sun lounge.

Book your stay with us and enjoy beautiful Orkney, we look forward to welcoming you!
