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 1 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.

Great house and location

We loved our stay at the cottage. It was very clean and well presented upon arrival, plus comfortable to stay in for the 6 days we were there. They accommodated us with a travel cot but the house itself wasn’t super baby proof (nice furniture) and accessible kitchen cupboards. There’s a couple of things we’d suggest that would have made the stay better. Any sort of radio or speaker would be great, as well as a coffee machine (Nespresso or such). Plus some hooks on the back of doors would be useful to hang towels from as there are few radiators in the cottage. Bar those couple of points we had a great stay and would happily stay again! Thanks!
