Getting around

At the Byre you are five minutes stroll from the Santon halt - a Steam Railway station. You are ten minutes walk from a main bus route artery into Douglas the capital, or (in the other direction), Castletown the airport and South of the island. There is ample secure parking here too. You are literally 20 minutes walk from the shore and beach and a host of coastal walks, of differing gradient.

Very Good

“Most enjoyable location”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2017

The Byre at Ballavale Barns is the perfect holiday retreat, yet convenient to amenities, finished to the highest standard in a contemporary style. A great deal of thought had been given to a starter pack in the fridge: milk, bread, butter, cheese, eggs and a bottle of wine. Nigel, the owner was on hand to welcome us to the property. A very comfortable, light and airy holiday cottage, with a well equipped kitchen, and a great shower! We would not hesitate to visit again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your thoughts and we are glad you enjoyed yourselves. Perfect guests and very welcome. Kindest Regards N

“Ten out of Ten”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2016

The Byre at Ballavale Barns was the perfect holiday retreat. A very attractive conversion in lovely grounds. It was much bigger than expected with vaulted ceilings in every room, each thoughtfully decorated and furnished. The kitchen was better equipped than my own and the owners had kindly provided eggs, cheese, bread, butter and milk as well as staples such as cooking oil. Great if you're planning on doing some proper cooking. My 15 year old was very happy with the WiFI, TV and other techy stuff. There were even binoculars for star gazing and loads of information about the island, what to do, where to eat etc. We had a very relaxed and stress free stay, felt welcome and very much at home. Having a steam railway stop less than 10 minutes away was also very convenient. We'll definitely stay there again if we return to the IOM.

Owner's reply: Thank you - So glad you enjoyed your stay. Come again!
