The setting is magical - step out the back door onto the mile and a half long white sandy beach that is Balnakeil Bay. Inside, enjoy solid wooden furniture, heated slate floors and a timeless décor of earthy colours in sympathy with the surroundings, paired with lovely muted plaids and tweeds from Anta. On entering, there is a hallway that leads to the superbly equipped kitchen with an Aga at one end and a wood burning stove at the other, separated by a 4.5m long oak table. This makes the perfect spot to gather and socialise whilst preparing and enjoying meals. A games room with a table football, boardgames, books, DVDs, a wood-burning stove, a comfy sofa and a flat screen 3D smart TV will keep the young at heart entertained, whilst those requiring quieter moments can rest in the sumptuous drawing room upstairs with a view over the beach, before all gathering for dinner in the dining room. The nine bedrooms are welcoming and exceptionally comfortable, with crisp white linen over memory foam mattresses. Guests have a choice of super king or twin beds in four of the nine bedrooms. At Elliot Houses we strive to offer you a taste of luxury country living in the sumptuously furnished surroundings of converted barns and houses, offering boltholes in idyllic and unique settings. We look forward to welcoming you to our Elliot Houses portfolio.Plus

We stayed with a group of friends to celebrate a 60 th birthday and not only were we blown away by the beachfront position - the house stands literally on the white sands of this perfect beach - and sea views from many of the windows - we were bathed in comfort inside the house. The Kitchen is a véritable tour de force perfect for our group who love to cook. It’s a real testament to the design of the kitchen (2 dishwashers, 2 sinks, 2 fridges) that we could seamlessly move about and get on with prepping. Lovely bedrooms, lovely sheets, nice bathrooms - all in all 5 stars and we will be back!!

Balnakeil House, Durness This is a holiday home of excellence. The location, the facilities, the decor, the comfort, the warmth and the cleanliness make it the ultimate destination for family and friends. Our family occupied Balnakeil House for the Spring Bank Holiday week in 2021 which followed a very difficult year for all with separation and isolation due to the pandemic so this was an opportunity for us to reunite in the most comfortable surroundings you could possibly want. The house despite its magnificent size had been thoroughly cleaned. The bedrooms spacious, excellent mattresses, pillows and bedding. The bathrooms numerous and spotlessly clean. The kitchen and dining areas superbly equipped. Lounge and entertainment areas very comfortable. The heating system is so well designed that we had no need to light the supplementary wood burning stoves. Drying and laundry room large and well provided for drying beach and wet clothing. A separate beach room with everything that children could possibly want for playing on the beach. The room was large enough to store our kayak and would be a secure place for bikes when not in use. The location is great for hill walking, rock climbing, beach/sea activities, running and bird watching and much more. A big thank you to Liz and the team for providing this 6 star facility.

The house was brilliant and catered for every need. The setting is unrivalled - metres from the beach and golf course, while the house itself is spacious and although we were a large group we never felt on top of each other. The large open plan kitchen was great for evening suppers and the bedrooms very comfortable. We will hopefully be coming back next year! Thank you.

The most beautiful house, perfect for a large group of people, set in a stunning location, just on the edge of Balnakeil Bay. Our children loved being able to walk straight out onto the beach in their wetsuits and swim/kayak or simply play on the beach. We loved the bay of white sand for walking along and finding some peace. The house itself is really spacious, so even if you are part of a large group it doesn't feel crowded and the owners appear to have thought of everything. We dined in the beautiful dining room, and enjoyed suppers around the big kitchen table. The comfortable beds ensured we had the best sleep for a long time. Highly recommend!

Planned as a christmas get away for a few friends. Christmas and New Year at Balnakeil House was just an amazing experience. From the day we arrived to the day we left, 11 days in total, the whole holiday was just great. The house is beautiful, the location is stunning. The walks are breathtaking, the two dogs we had with us were shattered at the end of it all. There is a very well stocked Spar shop in the village. We went shopping in Inverness on the way through to get the majority of the christmas and new year meals. We ate far to much and drank far to much but what a great way to unwind and what a location to do it in. I could not recommend this house enough .

We're a group of three families who have spent a week together on the west coast of Scotland for the last 20 years. This year, we reached 'peak holiday house' with our stay at Balnakeil. It is a beautiful house in a stunning location. The inside is warm and comfy, and has been renovated to a very high standard whilst still being welcoming and relaxing. The downstairs kitchen-dining-sitting room is superb for a big group to socialise together. The kitchen itself is really well equipped and our group of 15 easily fitted round the huge table. There's a more formal dining room upstairs but we loved the kitchen space so much we just used it as a revision room for those unlucky enough to be doing exams! There's a separate sitting room and also a games room so plenty of space to spread out and accommodate those that want to be noisy and those that want a quiet corner. The beds were super-comfy and the showers strong with lots of hot water (use the advance button on the boiler if required). Open the back door and you are yards away from one of the most gobsmackingly gorgeous beaches in Scotland. We loved the area so much that we only got in our cars for a trip out once, preferring to spend our time walking on the beach and surrounding coast. We loved it so much that whilst we were there we booked in for next year - says it all!

My parents booked this amazing family holiday for us. There were 12 of us. Including 4 kids, ages 6 & 10. My parents have been visiting the area for years and had seen the house when it was unoccupied and whilst it was being renovated. It was a dream to stop here and it came true. Living up to and exceeding expectations. This house is just amazing. The setting, the interior, the lawn, just all of it. Everything you need and more. Home from home. Very well equip. From herbs and spices to cool bags and ice packs. DVDS to body lotion. Games for all the family, body boards and BBQ. Really Comfy beds and amazing views. The kitchen/diner window seat was my favourite spot inside the house. This overlooked the beach. We had sheep and rabbits just over the fence too. The beach is amazing and the sea crystal clear, if not a little cool! The sand dunes are awesome. We spent lots of time sand boarding down them. The shop is a couple of minute drive away. Things to do and see: Smoo Cave (5 min drive) is a good place to visit for an hour or so. We also visited Oldshoremore beach and Polin beach, near Kinlochbervie (approx 40 mins drive). The beaches were beautiful here too and the climate was about 7 degrees warmer, as they are off the west coast, rather than the north. We took our inflatable Kayaks with us and used these on the sea at our beach (Balnakeil) and Polin beach. On Polin beach we discovered caves in the massive rock/land to the right side of the sea/beach. We also visited Tarbet (you can get a ferry across to Handa Island here) and had a picnic on the grass area just up from the jetty/pebbly beach. We took the kayaks around the water/sea here too and paddled (in the kayaks) around many little rocks/islands. We discovered seals, basking in the sun on a rock, they watched us for a while and then jumped in and swam around us (at a distance) afterwards. The sea was really calm and so clear. Before we headed home (to Balnakeil House), we went to Scourie and had fish and chips from a chip van. These were delicious. I think the van opens on a Tue and Thur. We will certainly be holidays up that way again and hope to stay at Balnakeil House again in the future too.

We stayed in Balnakeil House two years in a row in August 2013 and 2014. The house really has been beautifully renovated and equipped with everything you could need. The bedrooms are very comfortable and there are several public rooms. In fact, for both visits, the amazing kitchen was the social heart of the house and the dining room and living room were underused although very comfortable. Balnakeil beach is a wonder. There are many interesting walks close by – shore and hill -– and several nice day trips. Chocolate Mountain and the Northern Delights bakery are a short walk away and highly recommended. Balnakeil House is an excellent choice, especially for a larger group. We would gladly come again. This part of Scotland is breathtaking and really worth a visit.

We spent a fabulous week at Balnakeil with family ranging from 7 to 70 years old. The house is situated yards from the extensive beach and has been tastefully restored to provide a beautiful and very comfortable home complete with up-to -date facilities. There was plenty of space to accommodate our extended family, whether cooking together, dining around the wonderful dining room table or finding places "to chill!" With a beach on the door step, a surf shop nearby, wonderful walks and cycle routes on hand and a fabulous chocolate shop within walking distance there was plenty to keep all 16 family members entertained ! Have no hesitation in recommending this holiday rental and look forward to returning before too long !

Balnakeil, situated in a beautiful location right on the beach, is the perfect accommodation for a large group of people looking to get away for a memorable vacation. The house itself is very well equipped, and was very nicely decorated for the festive period (New Year). With a variety of rooms, a very social environment can be created, as well as a relaxing one. A trip well worth the long drive, I would definitely return again.

À propos du quartier
Balnakeil is on the North West tip of Scotland, and while it may be a long trip for some, it rewards those that make the journey. With impressive beaches, hills and vast open spaces, it is just how you imagined the Highlands to be and more. It’s an attractive walk to Durness (1 mile) to find the shop, pub and petrol station. Stop off at the Balnakeil Craft village on the way and peruse the local arts and crafts on offer, or buy some scrumptious chocolate at the well-known Cocoa Mountain Chocolate Factory. Balnakeil is truly magical, and no matter how you spend your time here, you will regret ever having to leave such a special place.
