“Just perfect - stunning accomodation”
Reviewed 12 May 2011

We had a wonderful week in the cottage. It has everything you could wish for. Well-equipped kitchen, spacious bathrooms and better beds than at home. Paul and Gill make every effort to let you achieve a wonderful stay. We hope to return again.

Had 4 days in this lovely farm house. . . It is the nicest accomodation that we have stayed in. The beds were luxorious, the rooms were filled with everything that you may need, the breakfasts were plentiful and the whole place felt so homely. It was a pleasure to return to each evening. Paul and Jill are lovely people and will do anything to make sure your stay is exactly as you want it to be . . . .
If you want to relax - then look no further - this is the place to be . . . . We hope to return soon ...

Paul and Gill have set up the perfect B & B and nothing is too much trouble. The house is your home and the facilities beyond reproach. Brilliant bedroom with sea views on three sides, very comfy beds, lovely on suite, and continental breakfasts to die for! No where on the island is far away - total length only 32 miles - so it doesn't matter that it's one end in a near perfect location. A hiden gem. Alastair & Anne

Booking on line you find you have to trust sights like this one, I found the self catering cottage to be fantastic for toddlers. Ours slept in the double bed to himself which he loved and mother and father was in the superking. Both bedrooms were well designed with ensuites the superking bedroom had the shower ensuite and the double had the bath and separate shower. Everything was there for our use even down to a hairdryer in each bedroom. All the floors were on the same level so no need for safety gates. The main road is quite a way away so no road noise. The view from the backway of the cottage is beautiful and fields for miles to look out on. Paul and Gill made us feel welcome and made themselves available if we needed anything. Overall an excellent cottage with loverly owners.

Returned for our second visit, this time we brought our Son and his family and stayed in the cottage for the two TT weeks. As last year we found the cottage perfect and very clean throughout. Nothing is too much trouble for Paul and Gill who go that extra bit to ensure you enjoy your stay on the Island.
Once again we enjoyed our stay so much that we have again booked the Cottage for next years Manx GP
We cannot recommend this place highly enough and fully agree with the review by others.
Our three grand daughters 7, 9 & 11 say it was "Cool" whatever that means

After a very hectic year both my sister and I wanted a bit of peace & quiet and relaxation and that was certainly what we got! The accomodation was surrounded by green fields and sea views and the room we had was very comfortable. My sister and I relied on public transport to get around as we didn't take the car; but this wasn't a real problem for us. We both like to walk and the nearest village was around 3 miles away where we could easily pick a bus up to go into Ramsey and then there are many other travel connections from Ramsey. The beach is around 30 minutes walk away and on both occassions we visited was empty of people; but we was fortunate enough to spot a basking shark! So this too was a nice peaceful place to sit & relax.
We will be returning to Ballathona Farm.

This place was quite a discovery - it is in the North of the island and very peaceful. The service and level of hospitality are superb and the view at breakfast time was breathtaking. We stayed in two rooms of the B&B which were both en suite, spacious and fully equipped. The wildlife is also something to see, with the birds flying over to our windows and perching on them - chatting.

It is definitely worth trying - even just once. But watch out, you may get hooked.

It is a little out of the way and you would need a car to get around but it is worth it. The local shop and post office is a 5 minute drive away.

We would definitely stay there again.
