Welcome to the Perfect Hotel Location



Billions of Christmas cards end up in the bin on an annual basis & this ultimately leads to the deforestation of thousands of trees.


So this year we have decided to face up to our responsibilities & make our contribution to a greener planet by opting not to send Christmas cards from now on but for an environmentally method to send our goods wishes to you over the festive season.

So here goes:

Graeme & Elaine of Balcary Bay Hotel

wish you a merry Christmas and a happy &  healthy New Year

We would like to thank you for being our guest & hopefully have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the not too distant



Balcary Bay Country House Hotel takes its name from the beautiful bay on which it stands commanding a stunning location overlooking the Solway, within an area of Galloway that is romantic in its isolation, and which was once full of intrigue. Heston Isle, the hide-out of 17th Century smugglers, fronts the hotel’s view across the Solway coast, while beyond rise the majestic peaks of the Cumbrian Lake District.

Romantic, secluded, tranquil & welcoming. We invite you to escape the pressures of everyday life. The hotel is set within three acres of mature landscaped coastal grounds & stands on the shore of the secluded bay offering all the comforts you would expect from a family owned country house hotel.

Whether you are a seasoned walker, cyclist, golfer, bird-watcher, or merely wish to escape for a little peace & tranquillity, Balcary Bay Hotel is your ideal base.

Dogs accepted by prior arrangement – maximum 2 small dogs or 1 large dog ( guests to provide own bedding)
