We spent a week at Balnain and had a wonderful time. Loved the outside space during the day - quiet but full of wildlife. And everything you need in the cottage for a warm and relaxing evening. Look forward to a return visit sometime soon. more

Our third stay at this wonderful house and garden which provides everything we need for a totally relaxing, and private, break away from the hustle and bustle of urban life. We hope to visit again in the not too distant future. more

This is a fabulous location - I never visited the same place twice until I found this amazing place, now I return every year. It is perfect: quiet, secluded, safe, an amazing place for the wildlife enthusiast. Red Deer, Roe Deer, Red Kites all come near the garden, wood peckers , wrens and siskins. If you didn't want to leave... more
