The Space

Newquoy is a beautifully renovated former Victorian school, set in amazing surroundings, it has retained an incredible gothic charm. As a B&B it's private, very private. Yet beaches are but a brief walk away, as are some of the islands best tourist sites. We cater for all types of visitor and guest, and very often run writing courses and other cultural events throughout the year. We cater for all your dining requirements, with incredible lunch and evening meal menus also available on request. If its something a little lighter you fancy then why not try the popular Retreat Tea & Coffee Shop. All our food is freshly prepared and cooked on site. With a vegetarian cook in our kitchen we take great pride in being able to cater for all healthy eating requirements. If you fancy eating out, then we can provide you with a fine picnic hamper of delights. Guest satisfaction is our number one priority, so we aspire to meet your requirements where we can.

As a guest you will have your own private double room. This comes complete with flatscreen TV, with satellite channels, free wifi, i-phone charger and speakers, tea & coffee making facilities and towels.

Interaction with Guests

We want our guests to enjoy themselves and we do make ourselves accessible to them. In addition to our other hospitality services, we provide bespoke island tours (additional cost) these have been described by guests as 'the best, most interesting tours on the isle', they are on foot and by car. Plus our resident writer provides 'Tales by the Fireside' storytelling events (additional cost).

The Neighborhood

Burness is the finest area of Sanday, it's peaceful, remote and ideally located for exploring the island. Certainly its one with the most amazing history, and where else to learn about this than the home of one of Scotland's most prolific writers and a best selling author. We told you we were the best, so come and try Newquoy, you won't be disappointed.

Getting Around

Unfortunately, there is no public transport facility for Newquoy, but that doesn't stop us, we are always available to help with guests transport needs. Plus, we have our own cycle hire facility available to guests only.

Other Things to Note

If you have any kind of dietary or other requirement please do let us know and we will do our very best to meet that. We cater for well behaved dogs too.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
