We booked the cottage as it was good value for money and as a young couple a hot tub with a view sounded romantic. However, when we arrived everything about the cottage was mesmerising and we couldn't decide which was the best bit!

We arrived at the cottage and were immediately greeted in a friendly manner by the owners. They made sure we were comfortable & knew how everything worked, and then we were handed a woven willow box with some traditional Manx food such as a Ramsey loaf, Manx butter, Manx milk, 2 fresh eggs from the on site chickens and 2 pots of marmalade. We could not have been made to feel more relaxed and at home.

When we were going out the cottage itself was down a long country road which seemed daunting in the dark, but in the day it was very beautiful and a part of the outing I looked forward to. When you came out of the road Ramsey was around 15 minutes away and everywhere was very easy to get to. There wasn't much open as it was winter times so no tourist attractions were available, but we made the most of beach & harbour walks and had great fun skimming stones & watching over the spectacular views.

The cottage is up a steep slope which at first is quite scary, but is well worth it when you see the view. To top this off, the hot tub is in a prime position to watch out over this wonder and no matter how cold it was outside there was no way we weren't going to sit in and make the most of it.

The bedroom was beautiful and big, a spacious double/king size bed with pillows I'm currently on a mission to find after my stay. It had wardrobe space, a desk with 3 mirrors, patio doors out onto the decking where the hot tub is placed and a comfy chair if it's too cold to watch the view outside. The lounge was massive with a sofa area, a log burning fire, a huge tv with lots of channels and a DVD player with a range of DVDS to borrow, a dining table & a coffee table kindly supplied with fruit and biscuits. The kitchen was again big with all the gadgets you'd need: a washing machine, dishwasher, oven, microwave, toaster, fridge, boiler all laid out in a sophisticated style. The bathroom was small but also had everything you need, and was a good use of space to make sure the rooms you spent time in were as beautiful as possible.

I couldn't recommend this place more and hope to come back again soon in a warmer part of the year so we can go do everything we missed out on this time.

“Warm Welcome in an Idyllic Setting”

We really enjoyed our short break at Ballawyllin Farm Cottage. We were given a warm welcome as soon as we arrived. The fire was lit and the cottage was stocked with everything we could have wanted. There were lots of little surprises, the attention to detail was excellent.

The location is quite remote, about two miles from a main road. The closest neighbors being a herd of sheep and a flock of chickens. You can see the sheep from the bedroom window.

There are pleasant walks from the door. We walked up to Windy Corner from the cottage, but otherwise you will need a car to get around.

Thoroughly recommended.
