Magical

5 of 5
A wonderfully authentic experience - climbing the tower and watching the sea turn from pale green to silver during the course of the day was truly breathtaking, and waking up to this view was even better!

Lovely, relaxing, quiet place to stay.

5 of 5
Our family group of 10 adults stayed in the Bay House for 4 nights, and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The large sitting room window looking out over the water gives a lovely feel to the house, so relaxing. The house was very clean and everything was up to a very high standard. We can highly recommend the Bay House for anyone wanting a quiet place to stay, right by the water. Chris and Debbie are very friendly hosts, ready to help in any way they can. Daniel
