Photography Escapes, Isle of Man

Map & Directions


Road Directions

Ballavere Cottage is situated in the south of the Island, and in the centre of the delightful village of Colby. Although easy to find, a pdf document is available to guests, with directions to our door. Ample off road parking is available on our driveway, and the local pub and shop are just a ten minute walk. A postcode in a sat nav system will not help you find us unfortunately.

Public Transport Directions

Ballavere Cottage has bus stops within twenty metres of the front door. The clean, modern bus fleet run north to Douglas and south to Port Erin, every fifteen to twenty minutes.

The village of Colby enjoys a delightful steam railway station, with seasonal services to both Douglas and Port Erin, four times a day. The station is just a five minute walk form Ballavere Cottage.

By car, Ballavere Cottage is just ten minutes from Ronaldsway Airport and thirty minutes from the Douglas Ferry Terminal.
