Overlooking the Atlantic, Westerbrake is a get away from it all experience. A cosy croft house, tucked away in a private coastal setting. Sea views, Breckon Beach, wildlife, walking and fishing 'on the doorstep'. Free from the intrusions of internet and TV - connect with nature for a while instead! Perfectly located base for exploring or birding Fetlar, Unst and Yell and within easy reach of Shetland Mainland.

We are happy to accommodate short stays out of season and last-minute so please ask.

El espacio
Westerbrake has been lovingly refurbished. Original, vintage and antique features and furnishing have been kept wherever possible so its unique character still shines through. Modern insulation behind traditional wood panelling makes the cottage warm and cosy - even in the winter.

There is a double bed in the bedroom and a traditional boxbed in the living room. The boxbed dimensions are 1.81m x 1.32m (5'11'' x 4'4''). Not quite as wide or long as a double so it is listed as single but it is bigger than single. It is ideal for one or two older children to share. It can of course accommodate adults so long as the dimensions are ok for you.

We provide binoculars, maps and a wide selection of natural and cultural history books about Shetland and the local area to help you soak up your surroundings. We also provide a selection of games, puzzles and books to help you relax.

The cottage has a portable Bluetooth speaker for you to listen to your own music if you have a Bluetooth enabled device. There are also USB charge points in the living room. There is an FM radio should you wish for some contact with the outside world!

The freshly refurbished wash room has a spacious walk-in shower and a laundry cupboard with washing machine. There is a clothes dryer outside.

The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering with a kettle, toaster, electric oven with hobs & grill and a fridge-freezer.

Servicios y zonas comunes
Westerbrake is self catering. You will have the cottage and its private garden with uninterrupted sea views all to yourself. There is a patio and lawn area with seating and a barbecue outside within a stonewalled and fenced boundary.

Walking routes with stiles lead in both directions along the coast making it easy to explore the area on foot from the cottage. The award-winning Breckon Beach is just a few minutes walk around the headland.

Whilst the cottage is free from the intrusions of internet, visitors have the opportunity to access the internet whilst relaxing with a cuppa at the Gutcher Goose café. Free wifi is also available from your car, 24hrs a day at the Gutcher ferry terminal. Both just 10 mins drive away.

Otros aspectos destacables
Very occasionally the farm track may not be passable with a vehicle due to ice or snow. In this case it would be necessary to park on our drive and walk the 200 meters track to the cottage. It is also important to note that the cottage is surrounded by working farmland where sheep and or cattle may be present. Cattle are usually present July to October and new born lambs in April and May.

Although it's situation is secluded, Westerbrake is just a couple of minutes drive from the local Cullivoe shop where you can stock up on essentials. Yell has four other well stocked shops spread throughout the isle including three that sell fuel and one that doubles up as a café.

Yell has two Rural Seaside Award-winning sandy beaches (including Breckon Beach just a few minutes walk away) and mile after mile of coastline to explore. Everything from sandy beaches to pebbly bays, dramatic cliffs and gentle rocky shores. It also has some of the best preserved peat-land in Shetland if sphagnum mosses, bog orchids and sundews are your thing.

There is a local bar in the Cullivoe Community Hall that is open every Friday night.

There are several places where you can shop for Shetland artwork and hand produced crafts in Yell including The Shetland Gallery, GlobalYell Textiles and Burravoe Haa craft shop. (Within seasonal opening hours).

Mid Yell has a leisure centre with a pool and gym and a healthcare centre with doctors and dental surgery.

I live in the beautiful, wild and remote island of Yell in Shetland with my husband Malcie and our little collie dog. I've worked in nature conservation for 20 years - 12 of which were in Shetland and am currently a wildlife tour guide. Malcie has been long-serving with RSPB in Shetland. All of the wildlife and landscape photos in our listing were taken by him. We are delighted to be able to share our knowledge, advice and love of Shetland's fabulous wildlife with our guests. Besides nature we both love music, food, art, World travel, good company and our dog.

Westerbrake is two hundred meters beyond our house, on the other side of the hill. It really is a 'get away from it all' experience with total privacy that we respect so we will keep out of your way. We will be available to help and offer any advice necessary - but only when asked.
