Basic loft space above the barn! It is a simple, rustic loft with 2 rooms and a tiny loo. It has a kitchen / dining room with wood-burning stove, dormer window snug and one double bedroom. The loo has no shower which is unusual and why I have priced it so. There are 4 showers downstairs via the main door and balcony - a 5 second walk, these are shared with the campers and glampers. It has a South facing sea view from the balcony. Ideal for couples on an adventures! There is also a small double in the living / kitchen area for extra guests.
The loft benefits from an elevated position on the farm. The view from the balcony is lovely and peaceful as it is set back from the rest of the campsite but still close to the campsite kitchen and dining space if guests want to hang out there with other guests. Wheems is 3 miles from St Margarets Hope Ferry terminal so easy to get to by car, bike or foot for keen walkers. Wheems Organic Farm is an ecological and organic 6 hectare horticulture smallholding producing organic food for a local market. Wheems farm buildings are 200 years old and have been renovated using local, traditional and sustainable materials (although this barn was only built in 1992). Wheems farmland has been sensitively landscaped with areas set aside for conservation, areas carved out with stone dyke walling, and areas of tree planting.
Wheems faces south and east on a hillside above sea-cliffs and beaches on South Ronaldsay. On Orkney there is nature, peace, space and sky. Wheems Loft overlooks cliffs and sandy beaches to the South within 5 minutes walk.
