Pamela Shimwell-Mayo MBE owner of Ballamoar Castle, Sandgate, Jurby.
I moved to the Isle of Man in 1959 and purchased the estate of Ballamoar Castle which has been my home ever since. The Swiss Chalet is one of the properties on the 55 acre estate.
I love Ballamoar and it's beautiful historic grounds which are over 400 years old. The gardens are made up of rare trees from all over the world and the sounds of the bird life are wonderful. When the Heron count takes place, usually 7 - 8 Heron's nests are found. Sometimes Hen Harriers can be seen.
The Swiss Chalet is a 150 year old property, situated at the top of the back drive to Ballamoar Castle.
It is an ideal location for a family holiday and sleeps up to 8 guests. We can also accommodate a further 4 in The Loft Apartment, across the drive. Making 12 in total.
Guests enjoy walking through the gardens and woods and find them very therapeutic, particularly listening to the many different bird sounds.
The sandy beach of Ballaugh is a 5 minute drive away.
We were made to feel most welcome on our first visit to The Swiss Chalet & consequently have enjoyed 3 more holidays in this unusual country house. We love the space for our children and grandchildren to explore without feeling on top of one another. The Isle of Man is our 'special place'!!
