Canty Bay House is a B&B that you would - on the one hand - like to hide from others to ensure it stays the secret place it is. On the other hand you would like to share your experiences with all the world to make this wonderful destination available to others seeking a comforting, contemplating place. By chance I was the first guest ever to stay here to write parts of my new book and felt immediately at home as well as I fell in love with the house, the surrounding nature and the delicious fresh homemade breakfast served every morning by the wonderful hosts. Canty Bay House offers a breathtaking view over the Firth of Forth, a small sandy beach is only minutes from the house and nearby Tantallon Castle ruin invites the historical interested. A real hidden gem.

Just a marvellous stay….but try to keep the lock poltergeist away….

17/7/13

We do have one big regret about staying at Canty Bay House – and that simply is we could not stay longer!! Canty Bay is a hidden gem of a find and 150% highly recommended to all visiting North Berwick, be it for golf, peace and relaxation or even a romantic getaway!! From arrival to departure, as hosts, we were made to feel at home and very welcome. Most of all, the breath taking views were amazing, pure tranquillity. Canty Bay House truly surpasses the label of “B&B” and “luxury” is wholly appropriate in it’s title description. Worth EVERY penny!! First class service without being intrusive. A beautifully positioned and highly appointed property with ease of access to many great golf courses, walks, private beach and the town centre. A magical find which we hope to return to in the not too distant future. So lovely meeting you and thank you, once again.
