Description

New for 2022

Located in the south of the Isle of Man and just 5 minutes drive from the Isle of Man Airport you'll find Ballavoddan Farm Cottages. In this rural setting, two lovingly refurbished holiday cottages can be found alongside each other, sleeping up to 4 people in each cottage. Book Ballavoddan Farm Cottage 2 as well to accommodate a group of up to 8 people!

The cottages are set back from Phildraw Road, Ballasalla in a spacious courtyard with ample parking for 2 vehicles in each cottage. Tastefully decorated, the cottages offer guests a comfortable base for a holiday, no matter what time of the year you choose to stay. During the summer months enjoy the pleasant grounds, a real sun trap on a sunny day, whilst in the cooler months enjoy the warmth of the log burner in the cosy lounge which is open plan with the dining area and kitchen making for a lovely social space.

A couple of minutes drive or around 10 minutes walk from the cottages you'll find the village of Ballasalla. The village has a pharmacy and shop, traditional pub, fish and chip shop and Chinese restaurant. The Abbey restaurant, a favourite with local residents for afternoon teas through to evening fine dining can also be found on the edge of the village. The Isle of Man Steam railway also has a station in the village, from here take the train through to Douglas or nearby Castletown and Port Erin. There is also a very frequent bus service with up to 4 services an hour at times to Douglas, the airport and south the of the island.

Also a short walk from the cottages is Silverdale Glen, an extremely popular spot for all the family with a childrens playground (including a unique Victorian water-powered roundabout), boating lake and cafe. Follow the Silverburn river downstream from here and you'll find Rushen Abbey. Originally a home for monks of the Sauvignac Order, Rushen Abbey came under Cistercian control and was developed as the Isle of Man’s seat of religious power housing the main body of knowledge and literacy for the Island. Take a stroll through the stunning Abbey Gardens to find remains of the substantial medieval buildings, blossom trees and an array of herbs and flowers – many used to cure common ailments.

A quiet escape

Once we worked out how to get to the cottage (road works closing one end of the lane were a surprise) it was fine! Cottage itself was lovely, very compact and attractive. A couple of minor additions like towel rails/hooks in the bathroom & a hairdryer would be useful but overall a great place to stay.

Beautiful cottage

We stayed at cottage No.1 as a stop gap before moving into a rental, the cottage was spotless and very comfortable with every amenity we needed and more. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud! There was a minor issue with the dishwasher and the oven gloves were missing bit we called the Island escapes team and somebody came out the same day to sort it, the service and response time from booking to checking out was excellent. We have just relocated to the Island and have already recommended Ballavoddan to friends and family.

A beautiful cottage

A lovely little home from home. Every little detail was gorgeous and we had such a great stay. The location was great for us as we have a toddler and spent one morning exploring silverdale which was a 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk I imagine. Our only complaint would be that the velux blinds in the bedroom weren’t blackout but other than that we couldn’t fault it!

Superb

The accommodation is in an old building and in a very private, gated area which has all been refurbished very recently. It is bright, new, clean and very tastefully decorated. With being there in the winter we were happy that it has outside lighting and a covered parking are and are looking forward to returning soon.

Staycation

Nice, cosy cottage but would benefit by supplying a hairdryer, oven gloves and perhaps bins in the bedrooms. Microwave was difficult to use too, we were only able to heat food in 30 second intervals, then having to repeat until the food was hot. Area was peaceful and the beds and the furniture were of good quality and comfortable. Would stay here again
