Review of 2022 of Destination Balcary from our Lovely Guests

As 2022 draws to a close we have had a chance to reflect on an exciting year here at Destination Balcary.

We only opened up the doors a few months ago and have been looking back at some of the wonderful feedback and reviews we’ve received from guests staying at our cottage.

We pride ourselves in our ensuring that all our guests have a wonderful holiday from the moment they book until they drive away at the end of their stay. The generous feedback and comments is a welcome reward for all the hard work everyone has put in renovating our family farmhouse and turning it into luxurious holiday home for all to enjoy.

So pleased with the positive reviews, comments and smile’s we have had from our guests that we thought we would share some of the initial feedback we have received from late summer onwards.

Our very first Google Review: 5.0 / 5.0

 “Wonderful house in a stunning location.  If you want peace and quiet with amazing views then look no further.  Beautiful decor, good quality bedding and luxury throughout.  We loved the views from the conservatory. The walk from the house to Loch Mackie, Rascarrell and round Balcary cliffs is a must. Can’t wait to go back again”

We welcomed out first guests back in August who wrote the following kind review on August 11th 2022

‘Stunning farmhouse in a stunning location’

 “This was exactly the holiday we wanted. Destination Balcary has the most amazing views. We enjoyed doing the coastal walk. The Farmhouse is spacious, spotlessly clean and the kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils you would need. The welcome cake and ice cream is a nice touch. Sue is so lovely and makes you feel very welcome. We would go back in a heartbeat.”

Views Across the Solway Firth to the Lake District – Come and See it for Yourself

We thank everyone for coming and staying at Destination Balcary, our farmhouse holiday home that sleeps up to 5 in 3 bedrooms. It is a place like no other with uninterrupted views across our farmland across to Balcary Bay.

There is abundant birdlife, wildlife, changing scenery with the seasons and weather and sounds of silence and the tides rolling in and out over the salt marshes each day. Use the binoculars in the conservatory to see across the Solway Firth to Skiddaw and the Lake District.

Come and see these amazing views for yourself, we look forward very much to welcoming you at Destination Balcary. See you soon.
