The Isle of Man

With over forty per cent of the Island unpopulated and uncultivated, the Island is renowned for its natural beauty throughout it’s thirty eight miles of length and it’s thirteen mile width.
The Isle of Man is the only entire jurisdiction in the world to be awarded a UNESCO Biosphere status.
With such a prestigious award comes the promise of wonderful scenery as well as a mass of bird and wildlife.
The Island’s dramatic, rugged cliffs and varied coastline, plus the rolling moorland and hills through to wide flat plains and sandy or pebbly beaches, all contribute to an environment that is perfect for the adventurous and enthusiastic photographer of all levels and abilities.

Your accommodation

‘Ballavere’ is a simply delightful and faithfully restored Manx cottage set in the heart of the Island’s countryside, and is home to Judith and David.
Your ground floor bedroom offers a luxurious brass framed, double bed, draped with crisp, white cotton linen.
Dressing gowns and sumptuous white towels all add those special little extras to your experience.
A stylish, spacious and private bathroom enjoys a large cast iron bath, just perfect for a long hot and relaxing soak.
You will have exclusive access to the wonderful, first floor dining and lounge area.
Summer visitors are welcome to light up the BBQ , but fail to invite your hosts at your peril !

I have been fortunate enough to attend many of the courses run by Dave ranging from studio lighting to landscapes. Not only is he an amazing photographer but also a fantastic teacher who is passionate to pass on his knowledge and experience. Elaine - Isle of Man
