our cottage

Ballavere Cottage sits in the centre of the small village of Colby, toward the south of the Island, and is home to Judith and David.

You will be looked after on a bed & breakfast basis and be able to enjoy a generous amount of private, comfortable space, throughout your stay.

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 stay.

A stylish, spacious private bathroom enjoys a large cast iron bath, just perfect for a long hot and relaxing soak. Exquisite toiletries by ‘Arran Aromatics' will enhance your bathroom experience.

You will enjoy exclusive use of the lounge and dining area located on the first floor, which has the advantage of beautiful views to the steam railway line and the distant sea beyond.

Your dining area incorporates a refrigerator, tea and coffee facilities, fresh milk (no awful UHT milk cartons) and all you would expect from a four star bed & breakfast home, with the added accolade of a Silver Award from our local tourist board.

Satellite TV, Sonos/Spotify music, fast wifi and a comprehensive photographic library, are all at your disposal within the spacious lounge area.

Guests are encouraged to enjoy the lovely garden (image opposite) and we have a barbecue should you feel adventurous.

Adequate parking is available on site, or alternatively, we are happy to collect and deliver you both to and from the airport or ferry terminals.

Local pubs are within walking distance and they both offer delicious food at reasonable prices.

Absolute pleasure to be well looked after and educated at the same time. Slightly in awe to be taught by such a talent - and a patient one at that !
