Turkmenian Eagle Owl

If you are a wildlife enthusiast or would simply like to encourage family members to immerse themselves in nature, look no further than the exceptionally placed Ballealy Cottage. Here, in the quiet and lush grounds, guests have reported sightings of wild deer and pheasants. This get away retreat is completely removed from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life.  A very unique selling point for this property, is the existence of a colony of resident bats who become active in the summer months. Although this won’t suit everyone, it offers a very attractive opportunity to get up close and personal with nature and these pipistrelle bats. Both children and adults alike, who hold a genuine passion and interest for bat watching, will not be let down by Ballealy Cottage’s privileged position. For the chance to tap into additional nature pedagogy, World of Owls is well worth a visit. This charity ensures the survival of owls and is very conveniently located to Ballealy cottage.
