East Ballabane is a traditional Manx farmhouse in a wonderful position overlooking the coast and farmland in the north of the Isle of Man, as well as the Ayres Nature Reserve. The area surrounding Ballabane is excellent for walking, cycling, and bird-watching. A site of major ecological significance, parts of the Ayres have been designated as an Area of Special Scientific Interest and as a National Nature Reserve.
The spacious house is beautifully furnished and has wooden floors and original feature fireplaces. There is a large sunny conservatory, and the farmhouse has an Aga type cooker. The large utility room houses the fridge-freezer, washer-drier and dishwasher. There are three attractive bedrooms one double, one twin and one single, a spacious bathroom with a roll-top bath plus a separate shower room with WC.
The whole property is furnished with carefully selected pieces, mainly old pine and antiques. It is truly a home from home.
The farmhouse is set in an enclosed courtyard, which is a real suntrap. It also provides plenty of space for parking. There is a garden in front of the property with a picnic bench and bbq area. You can also enjoy shared use of the large tree lined lawn that is ideal for games and more picnics!
There are wonderful beaches 5 minutes away in either direction, and there is also a golf course only 5 minutes away.
East Ballabane is the perfect spot for walking, bird-watching, cycling, painting, golfing, and for a peaceful family holiday.
Located next door is The Milking Parlour, a stunning barn conversion that sleeps 4.

Five days down NorthThe farm house was a joy to stay in. We were blessed with good weather and had some lovely walks in the surrounding countryside. We would come again .

Charming farmhouseWe had a great stay here and found it so relaxing being somewhere this remote. Even though wed only travelled from Douglas it felt like a real holiday. The house is comfortable and well equipped yet retains all the features of a traditional farmhouse. Our children particularly enjoyed their time in the play barn, and we enjoyed the table tennis. The extensive grounds, behind secure gates, were ideal for our dog - he didnt want to leave!

Lovely week spent as a familyThe farmhouse was clean and comfortable with a quirky layout! The welcome gift on arrival was much appreciated. All amenities and attractions in the North within easy reach by car. The barn with pool table and table tennis was enjoyed by our teenagers, and there were plenty of toys for younger children also.

Our staycationFarmhouse was excellent every possible need addressed. Warm comforting and very quiet with excellent garden for dogs. We absolutely loved our stay and would definitely go again. Box of chocolates waiting for us but have suggested they leave some milk for hot drink on arrival. Tea and coffee there and it is quite a haul to nearest shop. We would recommend East Ballabane Farmhouse midway between the Point and Smeale on the jurby road it is a real country retreat filled with quirky and antique memorabilia. Big rooms superb conservatory and the cream on top for me a working aga. I would love to be there at Christmas, two working log burners. Beautiful old cottage.
