    About this property

    Nestled just a stone’s throw away from the beach, this holiday property is perfect for a seaside break away with your little ones.
    The White House is a beautifully presented, 19th-century terraced stone cottage, with garden grounds that lead directly down onto a stunning sandy beach. The main living area is on the first floor, where you can take full advantage of the superb sea views from the large picture windows. The living area is separated from the bright contemporary kitchen/dining room by a large breakfast bar. Patio doors lead out onto a large elevated decking area, which is ideal for alfresco dining. There are two attractively presented bedrooms on the ground floor and a well-presented shower room. The gardens across the village road are mainly laid to grass, bounded by mature trees. There is also a further garden area at the rear of the cottage.
    The White House is conveniently located in heart of the pretty seaside village of Balintore. It is just a few minutes’ stroll to the small harbour, village shop, pub and restaurants. One of the renowned ’seaboard’ villages along this coastline, Balintore, and the adjoining village of Shandwick, are completely unspoilt and rarely busy. Dolphins and porpoises are often seen in the bay, and there is a wide variety of seabirds seen in the area.
    This local area is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. The nearby town of Tain is just a 10-minute drive away, and has an excellent selection of small shops, restaurants, cafés and pubs, as well as a wide variety of sporting and recreational facilities, including tennis courts, golf club and bowling club, all of which are available to visitors. It is also home to the renowned Highland malt whisky distillery, Glenmorangie. This is an ideal cottage for couples and small families wishing to explore this charming and unspoilt region of the Scottish Highlands. Cycling, hill walking, golf, fishing, horse riding, sailing, canoeing and surfing are all enjoyed locally. Beach 50 yards. Shop and pub ½ mile, restaurant 1 mile.

    "We enjoyed our break very much. It is a very comfortable,warm, well appointed cottage giving good views of the sea. We are pleased to have visited just now as we wonder if leafy trees would lessen the view of the sea."

    "This is a clean, warm, bright, cottage. Very welcoming and beautifully furnished and well equipped. It's in a great location and only a few seconds walk from a wonderful sandy beach so great for us and our two collies. There is a well-stocked local shop but we could not find a decent pub within walking distance!The only very minor drawback were the outside steps from the first floor living area to the back garden. Just not suitable for dogs! They would only need slight adaptations to make them dog-friendly. But with another garden just across the road this was not a huge problem. We'd all certainly go back to The White House. We all loved it."

    "This was by far one of the best cottages I have booked. The cottage was spotless, very homely and cosy. The views were amazing loved the decking at the bottom of the garden which was great for relaxing and doing a bit of dolphin watching. Balcony to the back of the cottage was great for the dog to wander in and out. Nice welcome pack on arrival and the owner was very friendly and helpful. Did not want to leave and will definitely be back. Have recommended to friends and family already."

    "We had small jack russell who could not use stairs due to size of holes on steps - not a big issue, but one to be aware of.. home form home with a wee touch of style!"

    "The town was just to quiet the pubs never opened till 5 Monday to Friday. The one that served food didn't even have a menu when we asked. The cottage was ok but not brilliant."
    Lise ‐ 26 May 2018
    "We had a wonderful stay at The White House. Perfectly clean and beautifully decorated to a very high standard. The kitchen is also high quality and easy to use when you know how! (google helped ;) ). We would recommend and hope to return soon."
