at Ballavale Barns, Isle of Man
The Byre is a luxury one bedroomed stone cottage set in the beautiful and peaceful surroundings of the Santon valley, above Port Grenaugh.
The cottage is perfectly situated for walkers and cyclists and faces west to enjoy the afternoon and evening sunshine after a day exploring our beautiful island.
The Byre is a 15 minute drive from Douglas and the ferry terminal and only a ten minute drive from Castletown and the airport. The main bus route is a 10 minute walk from the cottage, Port Grenaugh beach is a 15 minute stroll away and the Isle of Man Steam Railway stop is approximately 6 minutes away.
All accommodation is on the ground floor and access is level throughout the cottage. There is disabled access and wide doorways throughout. The large living room has vaulted ceilings and a smart TV with DVD player and a stock of books, games, jigsaws and DVDs for you to use. We do provide free Wi-Fi for your laptop, phone etc but cannot guarantee its suitability for streaming services. There is also a games room available with table tennis and a pool table.
The garden is also accessible and a secure place for children to play. There's a terrace and a lawn area. In the summer, you can relax in the provided garden furniture and enjoy views down the Santon valley while you wait for your dinner to cook on the barbecue.
There's room to park up to two cars at the cottage. There is also a garage to store bicycles and a pressure washer to spray down mountain bikes after a day on the trails. We are keen walkers and cyclists ourselves, so we have a bike rack and trailer to drop of mountain or road bikes and can be convinced to drop you at the start of the best runs or just give tips on where to go. We can even lend you a picnic basket and set so you can make a day of it.
