We are looking forward to the start of the 2022 season when we re-open our doors to holiday guests to facilitate your holidays and provide you with a home away from home!

Throughout the past 15 years Ballimore Farm Estate has hosted a large number of family groups, reunions, anniversary and birthday celebrations and even small intimate wedding groups and we had a great season in 2021 welcoming many cross generational holiday makers from all over the UK.
