Kingston House

Kingston House self catering accommodation in Orkney is located in the heart of the historic conservation area of Kirkwall, with views over ancient walled gardens leading up to the St Magnus Cathedral.

The house is in a secluded dry stone walled garden (with lawn, decking and trees) which is quite a sun trap in the summer months and an ideal place to relax with a glass of Orkney wine after a busy day sight-seeing. There is also a gas barbecue for your use.

There are many restaurants and pubs, all in close proximity, a mere 5-10 minutes walk away. Also, almost on your doorstep, are local shops for all your needs, whether you're after a pint of milk or a souvenir.


Kingston House is finished to a very high standard, with feature lighting inside and out. Oak doors and fresh decor throughout gives a quality finish. An airsource heat pump provides environmentally friendly underfloor heating throughout.

For added effect, a multifuel stove is the centre point in the living area, and provides a cosy atmosphere.

The kitchen is fully equiped with the latest and necessary appliances to make your stay hassle free. The living area has oak furniture and widescreen TV with a surround sound system.

The master bedroom has a superking bed (or twin beds if you prefer), built-in wardrobe and flatscreen TV and a full height feature window with garden view. It also has a power shower and jacuzzi bath.

Bedroom 2 has built-in wardrobe, flatscreen TV, full height feature window with garden view and superking size bed or twin beds.

Bedroom 3 is a light airy room with an unforgettable view. 6 velux windows and 2 full height feature windows are the ideal vantage point to view St Magnus Cathedral and beautiful sunsets over Wideford Hill. The room has built-in wardrobes, a flatscreen TV, and large king bed. Bedroom 3 can be a family room, as it also has a fold out sofa bed.
