Orchard Cottage is an open plan dome-shaped Manx cottage, inspired by the shape of a Celtic roundhouse. It has a super king sized bed, lounge area with wood-fired stove and 55" TV with Freesat, wi-fi, kitchen area (including dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge, freezer, oven and microwave) and shower room. It is fully insulated and heated, for cosy stays all year round.
For weekly bookings we supply a welcome pack usually consisting of bread (brown or white), butter or margarine, milk, jam, biscuits, and some fruit. Tea, coffee and sugar are also provided in the cottage.
The cottage is set in the grounds of Ballawyllin Farm within our orchard area. It has its own outside patio area for relaxing and enjoying the spectacular view down the Baldwin Valley, local birdlife and wildlife. The cottage has shared access to an outdoor hot tub and sauna set in a separate patio area.
There is step-free access to the cottage from the parking area, via a 12m long ramp. The cottage is single storey, with a low threshold from the patio area through the double entrance doors, and a low threshold to the shower. It is suitable for those with limited mobility provided they can negotiate the access ramp.
The cottage has been graded 4* Gold. The price per week is £630 on a self-catering basis, and includes towels and electricity. In the winter we provide one bag of logs for the fire for every two nights' stay, with additional bags available for purchase if required. Weekend breaks (min 2 nights, starting either Friday or Saturday) are available in off-peak periods. Shorter stays during the week are also available in the winter months.
