A deluxe holiday house in Durness, a beautiful area of Scotland. All rooms have spectacular sea or mountain views. This A-listed eighteenth century mansion is the ultimate holiday house by the beach for up to 17 adults.
Balnakeil House is situated in a stunning environment in the North West Highlands of Scotland. It is in a courtyard setting with Southerly aspect, so the sun shines on the house for most of the day.
Now fully restored it has been sympathetically refurbished to provide a unique and luxurious experience. 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.
