Buxa Farm Chalets are three Norwegian style semi-detached chalets situated on the A964 between Houton and Stromness in Orphir. The wood chalets with stone entrance porches are located on the waterfront of Scapa Flow on 20 acres of unspoilt land with stunning panoramic views of the hills of Hoy, Lighthouse on Graemsay and Stromness. The land is developed in accordance to Rural Stewardship guidelines to encourage plant and wildlife around the ponds and remaining property. Access to the shore is a short walk through the property.

Open all year round, the chalets have been assessed by VisitScotland as prestigious four star standard, and offer accommodation for four people in each unit. Each unit is single storey and includes ample parking, entrance porch, living area with spectacular views to Scapa Flow, well equipped kitchen open to dining area, 2 bedrooms (zip and link beds offer an option of double or twin bedding) and bathroom with shower over bath. There is a double bed settee in the lounge and cots and additional beds can be set up. A colour television with Freeview channels, DVD player, radio and CD player, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer come as standard. Ramps, wide doors and lowered light switches make these units accessible for those with disabilities.

Buxa EV Charing Point

More and more of our visitors have told us they would like to bring their electric car with them to Orkney but they suffer 'range anxiety' with fears they are going to run out of battery before they get to a charger. Even though Orkney leads the way in electric chargers per capita of population, our visitors have said they would like the ability to leave their EV on charge overnight at Buxa. Guests just don't want to spend their holiday time sitting in a supermarket car park charging their vehicle. After months and months of research and work we are proud to say that we now have a two-point EV charger installed at Buxa for the convenience of our guests. It is untethered so you will need to bring your own charging cable. Electricity, as you well know, is very expensive right now, so there is a charge for the use of the EV charger. We are hoping the convenience of on-site charging more than makes up for that. Happy travels!

What better way to enjoy your holiday at Buxa than in a relaxing hot tub enjoying the views!

Buxa Hot Tub

You can hire an Orkney Hot Tub for the week and have it delivered and returned to and from your chalet for only £250 for the week plus £60 for extra electricity/water. Contact us for more details!
