The Property

4 Stars

Oxna is a beautiful Scandinavian style holiday lodge built and furnished to the highest standards. Spacious, bright and tastefully decorated this 4 Star luxury lodge is the ultimate in self-catering accommodation and can comfortably sleep up to 4 people.

This luxury self-catering holiday accommodation in Shetland is one of two lodges located in the beautifully unspoilt area of Fladdabister & Ocraquoy on the South Mainland of Shetland and has exceptional seaviews over the Bay of Ocraquoy below and out towards the islands of Bressay & Noss. Indeed, there would be few lodges in the world that offers the discerning guests such unique surroundings – Oxna Lodge really does capture the essence of Shetland’s natural beauty.

A completely magical and dreamlike break for us all -
seals, otters, porpoises and more stars in the sky
than we imagined possible”

Jason Isaacs & family (‘Lucius Malfoy’ from the Harry Potter films)

From the large front windows you can admire the huge variety of vessels entering Lerwick harbour from small sailing boats to the large but graceful cruiseliners.

Also from your window you can watch otters & seals at play or you may even catch sight of the porpoises and killer whales which regularly patrol the coastline or better still, you could take the 2 minute stroll down to the shore and get amongst this amazing wildlife!

You can’t beat the view from the lounge window – we have seen all sorts of wild goings on – starlings defending territory, newborn lambs at play, seals basking, rabbits, swallows, and lots of birds. And best of all – otters in the bay!”

What’s nearby

This property has the most perfect location for exploring the whole of Shetland.

What a view to wake up to and only a stones throw from great days out!”

Marrigan, Dublin

On the doorstep you have all the gems of the South including the “Mousa Broch” in Sandwick; the beautiful sandy beaches of Levenwick & St Ninians Isle in Bigton, and further South can be found the Sumburgh Head Nature Reserve, the ancient settlement of “Jarlshof” and the excavations at Scatness to name but a few!

Lerwick is an easy 10 minute drive North with all the activities and amenities you would expect from such a vibrant Capital.

And remember, it’s less than an hour’s drive from here to the most northerly tip of Shetland and from where small inter-island ferries can take you to the North Isles of Yell, Unst, Fetlar and Skerries for the day!

A lovely chalet with virtually everything we needed and more! Stunning views and a great central base for exploring Shetland!”

Taylor, Grimsby
