Ballasalla is in the south of the island near Castletown. This small village is close to Ronaldsway Airport, built between Ballasalla and Castletown. Named after the medieval King Reginald of Mann by the Norse who called the location 'The Port of Reginald', Ronaldsway.
The Village is well serviced with a Mini Market, Shop and Post Office, a Store, Pub, Bank, Garage and Florist all within a maximum of 5 minutes walk from the apartments.
The apartments are approximately 8 minutes walk from or to the airport. Buses run through the Airport to Douglas via Ballasalla approximately every 20 minutes.
If driving Ballasalla, is near Castletown along the A5 (Douglas Road).
The Public transport system servicing Ballasalla is probably the best on the Island. Ballasalla can be reached by the following bus routes: 1, 1C, 2, 8, 11, 12. Travelling from Douglas, Port Erin, Port St Mary and Peel. The bus stops are almost directly outside of the apartments.
Why not try the historical Steam Railway. The train station is about 4 minutes walk from the apartments. Ballasalla can be reached on the Steam Railway from Douglas going to Port Erin or by taking the Port Erin train going to Douglas.
Ballasalla holds close ties with Castletown and is still remembered for monks and strawberries with cream. The village named from Gaelic meaning 'Place of the Willow Trees' was mainly built from the ruins of Rushen Abbey. A medieval Cistercian founded in the 1100's and dissolved in the 1500's.
Cottage was easy to find and well fitted out. The bathroom was especially impressive with a big jacuzzi bath. The bedroom had plenty of space and unusually plenty of storage cupboards for all you clothes. Our only wish would be for a better view from one side or other of the cottage.
Very pleased with our stay at this cottage, the cottage was everything that it said it was, clean,comfortable good bus service if you needed it. Local church for breakfasts and a good pub near by serving meals.
If weather had permitted we could have sat outside on lovely patio.
Plenty of room for our bikes, all in all a good holiday would recommend it to anyone.
This charming, nicely furnished and well equipped cottage offers plenty of space for three. The kitchen (with washing machine and dish washer) is equipped for cooking. Large sitting/dining room with attractive, exposed wooden beams. Nice, large bathroom. BBQ and table on terrace. Everything in good condition, clean. Good Wifi signal. Owner easily available for questions and assistance. Ballasalla is a nice little town with a very good restaurant (the Abbey) and access to many hiking trails. The airport is walking distance. Island's main bus lines depart in front of the cottage. Famous Manx steam train station is 500m away. Castletown, with its many historic sights, is 5km away, easily reached by bus.
I would definitely recommend the property to friends.
Lilac cottage was comfortable and roomy with everything needed for a relaxing holiday. Situated only 15 minutes drive from the ferry port it was easy to get to and proved to be an ideal base for getting to the many attractions in the South of the Isle of Man.
Set in the Irish Sea, the Isle of Man is a unique destination with over 10,000 years of history. Surprisingly large at over 33 miles long and 13 miles wide, there is far more to the Isle of Man than, at first, meets the eye. Venture away from the capital, Douglas, and you’ll find rugged cliffs, sandy coves, miles of uncrowded beaches, enchanting glens and unspoilt countryside, where you can indulge your passion for the great outdoors as you meander through glorious wooded glens drinking in the colours of the purple heather covered moorland. The ancient Celts, Vikings and Christians left the island with a legacy of their lifetime and all around the island you will find evidence of these early settlers - Celtic crosses, medieval fortresses and Viking burial grounds. Its most famous symbols are the Manx cat and the island’s emblem the three legs of Man whose meaning is “whichever way you throw me I stand”.
Golf: If you've only ever associated golf with Scotland, the USA or golf breaks in Portugal or Spain, then you've been missing out. Whoever said golf is good walk spoiled, obviously never visited the Isle of Man!
To a golfer, you don't need to be told just what an all-absorbing game it can be...on a good day! What you might need to know, though, is what a truly memorable experience golfing in the Isle of Man can be. Although just 33 miles long by 13 wide, the Island has nine golf courses (eight 18-hole ones and a nine-holes) and a population of 80,000, there's a good chance that you won't be facing long queues, whichever course you choose.
Even if you're staying only a few days you'll have the opportunity to visit a number of different golf clubs - no one course is much more than 45 minutes by car from any other.
The Island's courses can tax even the 'Nick Faldos' of this world, and there is one additional and major distraction when golfing in the Isle of Man...the breathtaking views. Whichever course you play, you'll be surrounded by sensational scenery - stunning coastal views and heather moorlands - it's enough to make even the grimmest score seem bearable.
'Rabbit', 'tiger' or otherwise, golfing in the Isle of Man is unique. Thanks to our favourable climate, golfing is virtually a year-round activity with few days' play lost to snow or fog. What's more, that special warm Manx welcome extends equally to the club houses.
