A Return Trip to a Favourite Manx Holiday Cottage

The position of Baljean is quite special, overlooking Port Erin Bay, which is why we have spent quite a few holidays there over the years. However the recent modern refurbishment has added to the appeal, giving it a real seaside holiday feel. The kitchen and upstairs rooms are very well appointed with good facilities. The decent sized sitting/dining room, with excellent views would probably benefit from a more substantial table and chairs and the TV relocated for more all round relaxed viewing, especially when there are more than 2 guests. We will however certainly continue to use this ideally situated cottage which ticks all the boxes for our requirements.

A relaxing location.

A lovely cottage with outstanding views out to sea and the whole of Port Erin Bay. Very convenient for shops, buses, trains and many walking opportunities. Parking location may pose a problem for some due to there being no turning areas and therefore having to reverse in or out of the road. The cottage is very well equipped, especially the kitchen. Other rooms, such as the second bedroom, would benefit from a mirror near a power point and maybe a small shelf as space is limited. Milk, butter, cheese, bread and a small selection of biscuits, tea and coffee were gratefully appreciated. A most enjoyable stay.
