Welcome to an Idyllic Hotel Location

Vic & Diana Alexander welcome you to the Balcary Bay Country House Hotel 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. Today, our cellared wines offer a selection of world class wines from tasty moderate priced wines to Grand cru. 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 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 have numerous rooms connected to 300 Mgbps fibre and offer copying/scanning services so that more time is available for leisure and relaxation. We look forward to your visit.
