Ballacamaish Farm Cottages
We offer three contemporary 4* self-catering cottages, set in the extensive grounds and gardens of a quiet (and clean!) working farm in the heart of Andreas on the beautiful Isle of Man. Our Harvest Cottage and Lavender Cottage both sleep four whilst our Sunset View Cottage sleeps five and is a single story with NAS M1 rating/Gold Award. Some of the features of our cottages include open plan living spaces, modern interiors, fully equipped kitchens, undercover parking and free wifi.
ISLE OF MAN
The Isle of Man positioned in the Irish Sea is known for it’s natural beauty, diverse culture, deeply rooted heritage and numerous outdoor activities. There are plenty of interesting things to do and see, especially in the North, within easy reach of Ballacamaish Farm if you want to tour by car, walk or cycle. Visitor Maps and other tourist information is provided in each cottage. This video will give you some insight into our world.

The Barnett family has lived and farmed at Ballacamaish Farm since 1976, so although we are not Manx we do know a bit about the Island! In that time we have farmed cereals and had both cattle and sheep on our land. We have also done a lot of work over the years to improve the farm with particular attention given to planting trees – we have two wooded areas quite close to the house and yard which guests are free to stroll through and enjoy.
The extensive gardens have also been improved and incorporate a large pond – a haven for all sorts of wildlife now but completely silted up when we first moved here. In addition we have about 130 acres or so of land so, provided we can plan ahead a little we can arrange for guests to have a tour of the farm and walk in some of the grass fields with no stock in them.
For guests who may be interested we have an extensive photographic record of all the work undertaken over the years to improve (and transform in many cases) the farm and land. ‘Balla’ means ‘home of’ and this farm was originally occupied by the Comaish family. We do have a fair bit of knowledge about the history of the farm and also have books detailing the records of local agricultural families and properties over the last century or two – fascinating for a wet day! The farm cottages have been created from what was the original milking parlour + out-buildings on the farm.
Our mission is to provide our guests with immaculate accommodation in this lovely setting and continue to ‘look after’ them so that they can share the enjoyment of living in such a peaceful and beautiful corner of the Island. We want you to really enjoy your holiday and are happy to go the extra mile to ensure that you do.
The Isle of Man offers visitors a wide variety of activities to enjoy whether it be sport, dining or sight seeing there is something for everyone.
Whether you are an avid sportsman or just enjoy a walk through the countryside, the Isle of Man has plenty to offer.
One of the best things about going on holiday is getting to try the local food and there are a number of restaurants nearby that are worth a visit.
