Have you ever imagined a relaxing short break where you could learn most aspects of photography on a "one to one" basis ?
... on a small but beautiful Island with abundant landscape vistas and miles away from the hustle and bustle of the UK ?
Now you can !
 A completely private and spacious bedroom, bathroom and large lounge/dining area in our tastefully restored Manx country cottage will ensure you a warm and comfortable stay for however long you wish.

Our four star, gold award Bed & Breakfast rating ensures we have something very special to offer our guests.
Partners are welcome and we have lots to offer, should they be non photographers.
We offer just one double sized bed within one guest bedroom for our visitors.
Ballavere Cottage has ample on site parking and enjoys open views of the steam railway and the Irish Sea beyond.
Our modern, fully equipped studio nestles within our traditional cottage garden.
Your host and tutor David, is probably the Island's most qualified, awarded and experienced photographer.  
He travels during the winter months teaching, speaking, and judging at many prestigious photographic seminars and events throughout the world.
You may select your learning from a variety of photographic subjects, or create a bespoke package to suit your exact needs.

Many of our visitors simply choose to tour our Island capturing wonderful landscape images.
Unfortunately, we have no facilities for children or pets.
