Built in the late 18th century, Puffin Cottage was originally a cow shed, part of a working farm at Ballacross.

Built in the late 18th century, Puffin Cottage was originally a cowshed, part of a working farm at Ballacross. This detached holiday property was in regular use until 1999 when the farm buildings ceased to be of any practical use in modern farming. Ballacross is set in 124 acres, and the cowshed was renovated to provide holiday accommodation in 2015. The name ‘Puffin Cottage’ was chosen because Peel is one of the few places on the Isle of Man where puffins can be regularly seen as they nest on the steep cliffs of Peel Hill, a short distance away. Take a stroll into Peel where you will find plenty of pubs and restaurants. Peel is the ideal spring board to explore the Isle of Man. In the evenings after a day of enjoying yourself you can sit on the patio with your favourite tipple and watch the sun setting. Beach 1 mile. Shop ¾ mile, pub ½ mile and restaurant 1 mile.

    A wonder cottage from which to explore a beautiful isle. Everything in the cottage is of a very high quality and the owners could not have been more helpful. We had all that we needed to relax and enjoy our stay.

    Puffin cottage is the perfect base for a family holiday on the Isle of Man. It is a beautiful cottage inside and out and is finished to an exceptionally high standard. The owners really do make sure their guests' stay is as comfortable as possible. We had a restful and comfortable stay. The welcome hamper was generously filled with local produce which we thoroughly enjoyed. We were made to feel very welcome on our arrival by both the owner Jane and her gorgeous and friendly dogs who entertained the children no end! The cottage is set amongst fields and farmland with sheep in the adjacent field. Shops are a short walk away, as is the beach and local public swimming pool. We have stayed in many cottages over the past 15 years and have to say this is the best by far! We will certainly be staying at beautiful Puffin cottage again in the future. Thank you very much Jane and family for making our first I.O.M trip a memorable one!

    Wonderful cottage and so well equipped. Welcome pack best yet in any holiday cottage. Would have been nice to have a window in twin bedroom. How about back wall. Otherwise top rated.

    A lovely cottage in a quiet location but only a couple of minutes' drive from Peel town centre and beach. The cottage is furnished tastefully to a high standard and both en-suite bathrooms have spacious walk-in showers. The owners have given a lot of thought to the needs and requirements of their visitors. A 'welcome' hamper awaited our arrival and was much appreciated. It was great to have a generous garden and patio with views across fields to the hills. We loved it here and hope to return one day.
