The Bessie was a lovely place to stay with beautiful views. I have never been to this area before but I am blown away by the beaches ....and scenery.
We stayed at the Bessie for the first time and what a beautiful place! The position on the harbour front allows for a bird's eye view of the seals that frequent the waters. The Bessie is ample big enough for the 5 adults that stayed. The bedrooms were of a good size and all other facilities were as described in the supporting information. Can't wait to visit again.
We stayed in the Bessie in some of the best weather possible. Sitting having our coffee on the window seats watching the fishermen unload their catch in the morning, or with a glass of wine in the evening as they headed out for the nights prawn fishing was magical. The apartment was very well equipped and tastefully decorated with everything you might need. The town itself was in a great location. Only minutes from the visitors centre with amazing views, where we were lucky enough to see dolphins. Lots of lovely beaches that you could either walk to, or just a short drive. A perfect holiday for us and Marty our lab who had a brilliant time. Thanks for letting us use your property!
Just came back from a fabulous week away, staying at The Bessie.
It's a modern two storey apartment overlooking a charming harbour. The apartment has been beautifully decorated. A large open plan living room, dinner and kitchen with a downstairs toilet. Upstairs there is a double bedroom with en-suite with wet room shower, a double bedroom and a twin room as well as a separate bathroom with toilet, sink and bath, but no shower or shower attachment (which would have been good).
We were left a very generous care package to welcome us and the apartment was spotless.
From the apartment, you can walk straight into the village which has a few shops, a post office, a couple of pubs and the owners of The Bessie also have a lovely little cafe/bistro called The Bothy. You can also walk down to the harbour or a little further on, onto the beach. There is also a long coastal walk that passes several villages if you want a good long walk.
We visited a lot of castles and Historic Scotland properties on our trip and couldn't recommend The Bessie enough.
Wonderful location overlooking harbour and western sky.
Very well equipped and extremely comfortable.
This apartment is first and foremost beautifully located with the kind of views that encourage you to sit and stare all day. Situated right by a harbour busy with boats coming and going there is always something to watch.
The accommodation itself is warm and comfortable and contemporarily styled. The rooms are well appointed and the kitchen equipped with everything a keen cook would require.
Burghead itself is an interesting village and there are pleasant walks all around.
It's ideal for a break at any time of year.
Our family with 3 boys spent a very happy time in Burghead at the Bessie. It is a beautifully equipped flat and in an amazing location - watching the seals in the harbour while eating breakfast was a fantastic experience. The beach is right on the doorstep and Burghead is a friendly place. We will hopefully visit again.
