Description

Set in the beautiful rural location of Ballabeg just five minutes drive from Castletown and the Isle of Man Airport Balladuke is a former farmhouse lovingly converted into a four bedroomed holiday cottage with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and coastline of the south of the Isle of Man.

Within easy reach of un-spoilt beaches and National Glens where spectacular views and Manx wildlife take centre stage. Enjoy a day walking and cycling, there are many trails available for all levels.

Balladuke was recently recommended by The Country Walking Magazine. With four bedrooms, sleeping a total of six people Balladuke offers a great self catering space for a family or group of friends.

Spring stay

A lovely stay. We stayed last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. Booking again we were not disappointed. The owner is charming and made us very welcome. When we return to IOM we will definitely be booking again.

Great place for a walking holiday.

Immaculately clean, comfortable house with wonderful views. Friendly owner next door if any problems - but we didn't have any. The welcome pack of bread, cheese, milk etc was very much appreciated. Half a mile walk to the bus stop so may be wise to have a car even if you have come to walk, as we had. But the bus service was reliable so it is possible to get to several wonderful coastal walks from Port St Mary and Port Erin, using the buses. There is a large supermarket in Port Erin which has a good range of ready meals as well as fresh produce. A great place for a walking holiday if the weather is kind - though not for people without a head for heights, as there are sheer drops very close to the coastal paths!

Charming cottage

What a great find, charming cottage warm and well maintained, fully equipped with everything you would need in a holiday home, nice little touch having bread, milk, cheese, tea, coffee and biscuits upon arrival. Our 3 boys loved having the outdoor space to play. We came to visit family and the cottage had ample space to accommodate us and our visiting family, we will without a doubt be booking again. Friendly and welcoming host too!!

Ideal location

Situated in the South of the Island this was ideal for visiting the many interesting places close by. Very comfortable and well appointed, modern and finished to a high standard. Owner very helpful and accommodating. Golf courses within 15 minutes made it all the more attractive.

Home from home

I would recommend Balladuke Farmhouse. It is spacious, clean and well equipped, with stunning views and ample parking. The owner, Elaine Taggart, lives nearby and is very friendly and helpful. Jack, the farm cat is so cute and super friendly. It was an deal location for our family birthday celebration with ages ranging from 12 to 85 years.

Lovely home from home...

We’ve just had a 3 night staycation at Balladuke Farmhouse. We chose to stay at Balladuke for many reasons, the lovely location, handily placed for Port Erin beach, steam railway etc etc. On arrival we were met by the owner of the property who was very friendly and extremely welcoming. She was happy to chat about the history of this beautifully updated old farmhouse. The house itself is surprisingly spacious, very comfortable and well equipped. Our family group ranged in age from an almost 4 yr old boy to his 75yr Grandad. The fact that hay/silage was being turned during our stay was an added bonus for a tractor mad little boy. We are all happy to recommend Balladuke farmhouse to anyone looking for a lovely peaceful stay in the Manx countryside . We would thoroughly recommend using Island Escapes for a hassle free booking experience.

The stuff of dreams

A lovely farm cottage in a superb, peaceful location with stunning long views, plenty of room, and all mod-cons, including a new kitchen. Very pleasant owner, Mrs Taggart, on hand and very helpful. Will book again.

My 2 week isolation

I stayed in the property during my 2 week isolation after returning to the island. Obviously no one relishes 2 weeks on their own, but having said that, I can't think of a nicer place to spend the two weeks. The property is lovely, it has every facility you are likely to need, it is comfortable and the owner, Elaine, was very helpful - within the bounds of my isolation. Also the view is stunning, you can spend quite a lot of time just looking out from the window. Many thanks for arranging the booking for me. Ian Musgrave

A beautiful house in a gorgeous location..

Taking advantage of the Guernsey/Manx airbridge, we had a stress free week that we both needed. It was perfect in every way. Elaine was lovely and very helpful too. Hopefully we can maintain a link and come back again.

Very Impressed

Elaine the owner could not have been more helpful to us during our stay. We had car issues and she was supportive even helping us inflate a flat tyre! Lovely place definitely would book again. The children loved the space and i have slept better here than i have in years. Spotlessly clean and pleasant decor

We enjoyed a fabulous staycation at Balladuke. The views from the farmhouse are spectacular!

We were made to feel very welcome on arrival. It was lovely to meet the owner who is really helpful. The Island Escapes welcome goodies of Manx produce were really appreciated. The facilities are spot-on. We had everything we needed. Great for a family and good location close to lots of activities in the South of the island. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely relaxing vacation

If you want a peaceful and relaxing holiday this is the place for you, with gorgeous views across to the sea. The farmhouse is lovely and spacious with all mod cons and the owner, who lives nearby, is welcoming and helpful. Although in a rural location the property is close to the airport and Port Erin/Port St Mary. I really enjoyed my time here and would definitely stay again.
