A great stay in an amazing location

A very large property with a huge lounge and bedrooms. Views over the fields to the sea with lambs and hares in between. A short walk down to the beach through next doors garden ! (it is a public footpath) The kitchen was very well equipped with three ovens, dishwasher tablets and cleaning products were provided. Took a while to get used to the induction hob, reading the instructions was the answer ! The turning to the property is a very tight turn into a narrow lane, I was glad I practiced Google Maps street view before we went although the instructions you get sent are excellent. All in all a great find in an amazing location and a fantastic base to explore whole of the Island as you are midway to most places from the Sound to Ramsey.

Wish we were there.

Writing this on behalf of Friends who managed to get over to the Isle of Man for the holiday. We didn't make it due to ferry cancellations that week and as time went on due to the inclement weather it wasn't worth it for 2 days in the end, all ferries available to take our dog in a dog lounge not available until the Wednesday. Anyway our Friends thoroughly enjoyed their time at Ballerhennie House, loved the Island and accommodation just tge two of them in a fantastic place home from home I believe and the owners very helpful, they had no complaints whatsoever ever which is great. Hopefully we will manage to get over some other time.

Tea Cups !!

A friend of my family said he was taking his family to the Manx Grand Prix, did we fancy it They where staying at Kirkmichael I hadn’t been since 1993 so got on island escapes and booked Ballarhennie House as it was the only house left available We arrived and wow what a place, absolutely stunning Lovely touches like tea, coffee milk and a loaf of bread etc there for when you arrive Absolutely spotless as well We met the owners of the house who live next door, charming people The beach is down a small path that’s a bit steep but ok if you take it easy If you’re in the iom for the bike racing you can get around the outside of the whole circuit on the back roads when the track roads are closed Well can I find any negatives The answer is no ! It’s my preference but I would prefer a bigger tea cup ! Fantastic stay and thank you to the owners for letting us enjoy their beautiful home

Stunning location rain or shine

We will be back. It was an incredibly hot week and the house was perfect; it would have been great in the rain too. Wonderful evening views of the sunset and we walked on the beach every day. Hosts were extremely accommodating and had provided all that was needed in terms of bathroom soaps and shampoos, kitchen cleaning and loo rolls etc for the whole stay. Well equipped kitchen, great living/games room. Quiet and secluded patio area. Our dogs loved it and set up home in the utility which could be secured for them after beach runs. The garden wasn’t secure but with well behaved dogs and no passing traffic this wasn’t an issue. Loads of fridge and freezer space and fantastic oven. There is a narrow grass/ gravel track for access and this was absolutely fine for confident motorcycle riders. Only improvement we could think of was protecting the corners of the low hood over the hob- the sharp edges proved a bit dangerous to anyone over 5 ft 8 in who was cooking!

Wonderful stay

We have had a great ten days staying in this lovely house. It is very comfortable and well equipped (including a piano which I enjoyed playing very much). The house is in a great location, very quiet and lots of outdoor space and seating. Glorious sunsets over the sea. The hosts were super helpful but never intrusive. We would definitely recommend a stay here.

A super property with improvements suggested

A lovely property in a great location above the beach, comfortably furnished and fairly well equipped. Christine & Ben were friendly and helpful but unobtrusive. The real negative was a very cold property when we arrived and the heating not on. We were the firat guests of the season and it took a couple of days for an ambient temperature to be reached. Suggestions for improvements would be some sort of window coverings in the main lounge/games room, a knife sharpener, a couple of lighweight chopping boards and some big casserole dishes. It was great and we would return to the same property.

Beautiful place to stay

This is a lovely cottage and would definitely go again. Views of the sea, walk off road to the sea in 5 minutes which is a great early morning dog walk. Lots of nice walks from the door. Fantastic play room. Only thing to note is the garden is not dog secure and there may be sheep in the surrounding fields. There is a small paved area that is more secure. Highly recommend…

Great Place

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ballarhennie House. The house was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed and more. The garden was lovely, although due to the time of year and that we were out and about taking in the Island's history we didn't make much use of it. We have some lovely photos of the places we visited on the island and of the spectacular sunsets from the house. This was our first visit to the IOM and we would not hesitate in coming back to Ballarhennie House if we ever come again.

A hidden Gem

We stayed with our son, his wife and our 2 x small grandchildren. We all had a great time exploring the huge house, sunning ourselves in the garden and by the pond. Learning to play the piano, playing table tennis and snooker in the evenings. It may be tucked away but we were never short of things to do. We walked to the beach several times, so easy and near. Watched the sunsets too. Couldn't fault this hidden Gem.

TT week stay

Had a fabulous time at no ballarhennie house, walking distance to TT track and the beach. Plenty of parking for our van , car and 5 bikes. A great location to ride out from to all parts of the island. Very friendly owners who made us feel welcome and a very spacious house so plenty of room to move around and relax , excellent stay, many thanks.

Another great stay at this wonderfully located house.

After staying here in October ( it rained every day btw ) it was was great to return and experience sunny days EVERY day! This meant we could fully appreciate its fantastic location. A 5 min walk to the beach is a lovely thing, watching the lambs play in the fields surrounding the house and the fantastic views and peace its location bring. The house is still great ( though still advertised as having a tumble dryer which we pointed out last time it doesn't have - it would have been dam handy in October! ) and has everything you would need. The owners are very friendly though after the first day we hardly saw them. It's nice to know they are there should you need help though. We plan to return here again next year - a third visit is surely enough reason to prove its a lovely place to stay! Thank you for making yet another great holiday possible.

Perfect place for break away

Very large property. Owner lives next door very friendly. Key box unable to open had to get the owner to do it for us. Unable to open this morning on leaving. There must be a knack to it Fire in living room doesn’t work which would have been lovely but not a major problem. Internet dropped out which then affected hot water but it was sorted very quickly. We had family around a couple of evenings and this was no problem.

A gorgeous house in a fantastic rural setting.

Although we arrived in the dark, we instantly knew we would love staying here. Accessed down a narrow, 'green' lane it sits between fields and next to the owners house and is a short walk to the sea ( fairly angry at the end of October! ) The house was clean and had everything you would need and everything just worked - thankfully this included the heating and hot water as we had many cold and wet days during our stay but the house was toasty warm and very comfortable. The oven, dish washer etc where all high spec AEG making things easy. The coffee machine makes excellent coffee with a milk frother that was also used for making the kids Hot chocolate-ideal after a bracing walk on the beach with the kids and dog. We loved the house so much I think we will return next year in our search for somewhere to live on the Island-I wish this house was for sale....... :-) Thank you for a easy booking experience and for a lovely holiday home.

What a lovely, spacious house. We could not have chosen a better one. To have a great games room/living room/ bar was great fun.We used it every night!! The kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of space to cook. To be a few yards away from the beach was a bonus.

Staycation

Ballarhennie is a fantastic place for an escape in a beautiful location - hill views on one side and the sea on the other. There’s plenty of space for 6 people and the table tennis and pool tables are great for filling in the rainy days. It’s a 5 minute walk to the beach and the sunsets are amazing. Keep an eye out for the bats at sunset. Would highly recommend it, but don’t tell too many people as we’d love to come back soon.

Priorities

This property ticked all my priorities. All four beds are comfortable - adults could sleep on the singles if necessary. The location and facilities entertained a 12 year old and a 14 year old as well as a 5 and 6 year old. We all loved playing table tennis and pool. The property is in a stunning location with beautiful gardens, every window has a great view.

Perfect getaway

The house itself was clean, extremely well equipped with a very spacious interior and exterior. The garden areas were gorgeous. The surrounding area is perfect for idyllic walks and easy access to the beach. Excellent location for gorgeous sunsets. The location was perfect for us with being very rural but also easily accessible to Peel / Ramsey. Hosts were very welcoming. All in all a perfect break. We came as 6 adults but already thinking about coming back with the kids. Highly recommended for breaks for both family and friends.

Long weekend with young adult family (including the dog)

The location was ideal with the beach on one side and the old railway line footpath on the other so we enjoyed some stunning walks. The gardens were beautifully kept with a variety of different spaces to use. The accommodation was very spacious with lovely touches throughout. Each room had its own style and the master bedroom was stunning. The games room was a hit with everyone in the evenings. Perfect peace, gorgeous sun sets, great facilities and none of us wanted to come home!

A quiet retreat near the coast

We only spent 4 nights (3 days) at the property, but it was ideal for a birthday celebration. As the property is very close to the coast, and away from the main road, it was very peaceful, with some pleasant walks in the surrounding area. We did struggle a bit with the automated heating/hot water system, and some of the technical cooking appliances, but as we were only staying a few nights, we managed. The house and grounds are lovely, with all bedrooms en suite, and the main bedroom is enormous. Only suggestion would be a downstairs wc, and a Freesat tv system.

Beautiful country Home

We had a lovely 1 weeks stay with our 2 small children. The house and ground are really beautiful and the kids loved the garden. There is a little path from the house down to the beach which is beautiful and very peaceful. There also a heritage walk just down the round which is a lovely little stroll. We loved cooking in the kitchen and dining outside on the patio. The house is really lovely and spacious all rooms with en suites. Would definitely recommend
