Coel Na Mara is a clean, comfortable, spacious house with attractive sea views in a peaceful rural location. Centrally located on the island of Yell with easy access to the Mainland, Unst and Fetlar making it an ideal base for exploring the islands.
Coel Na Mara, meaning the sound of the sea in Gaelic, offers the best of both worlds. Attractively situated in peaceful surroundings overlooking the pier and voe in Mid Yell and a stone’s throw from a sandy beach, it is within easy walking distance of the local shop, cafe/restaurant, boating club and modern leisure centre / swimming pool.
The house was built in 1974 but is freshly decorated and newly furnished with a newly installed kitchen and bathroom. It benefits from double glazing and electric storage heating and all linen, crockery and utensils are provided. Accommodation comprises one twin and one double bedroom, living room with colour TV, DVD player and stereo, modern dining kitchen with automatic washer, dishwasher, fridge freezer, kettle, toaster, cooker and microwave and a modern bathroom with over bath shower.
Centrally situated on the island of Yell, it makes an ideal base for exploring the Mainland, Unst and Fetlar which are easily reached by frequent and inexpensive vehicle ferry services. Yell itself has much to offer too, whether you are a wildlife enthusiast, birdwatcher, walker or just want to enjoy some solitude and get away from it all. The island is blessed with modern services and transport infrastructure yet retains a strong sense of tradition and community spirit. Nowhere is this more evident than at the various social and community events held throughout the year. Spring and summer are our busy times when the long days can be spent exploring the island and evenings watching the sun set over the village, local fishermen landing their catch at the pier or an otter or two if you are lucky. We however offer discounted rates in the winter months when the short days, which can throw anything up from spectacular storms to picture postcard winter scenes, are livened by events such as the Cullivoe Up Helly Aa and traditional New Year celebrations which will give you a true taste of Yell hospitality.
Whenever you choose to visit, Coel Na Mara offers the perfect getaway and a warm welcome awaits you.
