The Bee Lodge is a tranquil private space, perfect for a relaxing getaway or to use as a base for visiting the Isle of Man. Separate from the main property on a quiet housing estate, the Bee Lodge is 5 minutes walk from the local bus route, 20 minutes drive from Douglas and 10 minutes drive from Ronaldsway airport. With parking at the front of the house, the Bee Lodge is accessible via a side gate to the back garden. This accommodation is Isle of Man Tourist board approved with a 4* B&B rating.

The space
The Bee Lodge looks out into the garden, you are welcome to use all the seating and garden furniture (I keep the comfy cushions in the garage) as well as access my wildflower meadow where I keep my bees, there is a bench in the meadow where you can watch them come and go.
The interior of the Bee Lodge is finished to a high standard, with two Smart TVs, a sofa bed sprung mattress, electric shower, heated towel rail, gas fired central heating and high speed broadband. There are books and games available for you to use throughout your stay.
This property does not have a full kitchen. Instead, as part of the living room there is a fridge, toaster, kettle, oven/grill combi microwave. There is also a separate fridge and freezer in my garage which is available for the sole use of Bee Lodge guests.
The space is cosy and compact and contains everything you will need for your stay. It is ideally suited to a couple, a couple with one or two small children or three adults.

Where you’ll be

Isle of Man

Ballabeg is a quiet hamlet about 2 miles from the ancient capital of the Isle of Man, Castletown. It is situated just off the corner of the Southern 100 Motorbike road racing route so great for spectating on race days.
The nearest shop and pub is a 20 minute walk away in Colby.

During your stay

I would be delighted to give you a demonstration of beekeeping depending on what time of year you decide to visit. I have extra bee suits and protective equipment for your safety and you are of course welcome to sample the honey!
