Our accommodation at Balcary Mews Cottage was of a very high standard and was really beautifully presented in a very tasteful and modern coastal seaside style that was in keeping with the character and location of the cottage, which is ideally situated in a very quiet and secluded place on the edge of Balcary bay. There were outstanding views of the surrounding coast from nearly every window in the cottage and in particular the kitchen was a really lovely place to have our meals, as it has a dining area next to a large picture window that looks out over a beautiful garden and the bay towards Almorness Point. Balcary Mews Cottage is really quite spacious and is very tastefully and comfortably furnished and is well-maintained and extremely well-organised and equipped. A lovely patio garden overlooking the sea only added to our enjoyment of the cottage and allowed us to enjoy spending a lot of time outdoors. The cottage and the garden have an amazing setting that surpassed all our expectations and have outstandingly beautiful and spectacular panoramic views of Hestan island and Balcary bay that look out towards Almorness Point and beyond the bay to the high cliffs and coast of Castle Point. The view of Hestan Island and the long narrow causeway that emerges briefly from the sea and with the tides each day and the wonderful sunsets that sometimes bathe the bay in a lilac silvery light make this an unforgettable and memorable place to have a holiday This cottage is absolutely beautiful and the views of the coast from it make this an exceptional self-catering accommodation. Very comfortable and relaxing, extremely well presented accommodation in a stunningly beautiful place.

Fantastic cottage and location. So many walks and things to see from the door step. Gill and Mike were fantastic and so helpful. Not to forget their pet dogs who were so friendly and added to the enjoyment during our stay. In fact we loved our stay so much we have booked for next year. Can't wait.
