“'Home from home' camping!”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Have just returned from a long weekend camping in Ballaugh - stayed in one of the wooden pods - warm, clean, dry and cosy! Came with its own fridge, electricity and heating ( which thankfully, we didn't need!). The facilities are second-to-none... clean hot showers and toilet block, superb kitchen preparation room, complete with 2 huge fridge-freezers to store food in, microwave ovens, toaster, free tea and coffee, games, books, DVDs. We all enjoyed it so much, we're heading back soon! Thanks Steve - you provide a great facility!

Room Tip: Well kept campsite - quiet, excellent facilities

We have recently brought our caravan home with us to the Isle of Man and on the recommendation of a friend took it up to the site for the summer.

The site has great facilities with a kitchen available and the toilets and showers are really clean and well looked after.

Steve who runs the site is friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble and after touring all over the UK this is one of the best sites we have ever stayed at and price wise it is hard to beat.

Stayed 3 nights in wooden pod, 3 people, and were well impressed.

Campsite well-run by Steve, who was very welcoming and friendly. All facilities were very clean and in working order. Hot showers, clean toilets. Kitchen/club room equipped with 2 big fridge freezers, tea coffee and milk, instant boiling water, TV/video, big tables and benches that we used for evening board games. Washing machines & tumble dryers in a separate cabin. Clear rules about no noisy behaviour between 11pm and 6am.

Safe for children to ride bikes and kick a ball around, as there's minimal car movement, and only one way in and out of the site. Flat pitches.

The pods are very cosy and well equipped: lights, power points, heater, mini fridge, foam mattresses, and plenty of storage space under the bunks. Outside, there's a small deck and fenced grassy area, so you can always find a sheltered spot for book reading.

5 mins walk away is a Spar mini supermarket and the Raven pub, which serves decent food. It's a great base for walking and cycling in the north of the island. The views are great, over the hills, and we were lucky in having big blue skies. The loudest noises we heard were the cows in the farm next door.

Highly recommended for getting away from it all.

Room Tip: Book a pod!

After hearing great things about Ballamoar campsite we booked on a whim the day before. As three families, we shared a campervan, 'igloo' and large tent. The facilities are marvellous, everything was clean and the tea and coffee was on the house. Enormous fridges for all your provisions. Free Wifi! The site manager was friendly and helpful and inflated our mattress to save us from the foot pump! Tranquil location with pub and shop near by. All the residents were friendly too. A safe environment for children. The showers were clean and hot! We hope to return soon...
