Welcome to an Idyllic Location

An historic Scottish Beachfront Manor combining Relaxation, Ambiance and Quality Foods

Vic & Diana Alexander welcome you to the Balcary Bay Country House which takes its name from the stunningly beautiful bay that overlooks the Solway with the Cumbrian mountains in the distance.  Each day brings a different colour spectrum to this wonderful vista.  Each night brings forth a romantic moon shimmering across the waters. This historic hotel started its life c.1625 and, together with Hestan Isle opposite, was a major smugglers haunt during the 17th and 18th centuries. The vaulted hotel cellars were once full of contraband liquor. We focus on good organic foods, health and nutrition as well as providing guests with relaxation, tranquillity and the welcome of a cosy log fire. Our Head Chef/Owner, Diana is a qualified nutritionist and Keto Chef and her Menus include a variety of gluten free and sugar free options. Our immediate region is an area of outstanding natural beauty with many diverse and interesting places to visit and activities that embrace exotic gardens and wildlife. For business guests we are connected to 300 Mgbps fibre and offer copying/scanning services.

The Hotel welcomes guests with pets.  Pets are allowed in the guest room, Bar and Conservatory dining areas where they may join their owners for dinners.  The Superior Rooms are most suitable for pets as the rooms open on to a private patio and the lawns. There is a pet charge of 30.00 per pet per stay to cover deep cleaning costs.

We look forward to your visit.
