We’re missing the island already, although it was good to see the animals again, and are looking forward already to coming back next year for the GP - we’ll decide on exact dates very soon and let you know.
We very much enjoyed our stay in Georgina's cottage (no 1). It was equipped with everything we needed and was comfortable and peaceful with great views from the garden. Georgina was helpful and friendly. As others have mentioned, the Raven pub is within easy walking distance for an evening meal.
It was only after we got home that we found out that there are wild wallabies living nearby (in the Ballaugh Curraghs) - we hadn't noticed any at the time! We did see seals on a boat trip from Port Erin however - highly recommended.
This was our second stay in The holiday cottage and after years of looking around the Isle of Man for somewhere that ticks all our boxes, we have found it here. We mainly go for this type of relaxing holiday location as part of the Classic TT festival, the cottage is fully fitted with everything you need, plenty of parking, private gardens and away from the main road. We take 2 motorcycles in a van and ride out from the cottage which is in an ideal location. With shops and pubs in nearby Ballaugh village or Ramsey. This holiday cottage and location must be up with the best on the island. Looking forward to returning already.
Great sized kitchen and bedroom with a king sized bed I think. Decor to a high standard. Great view of the hills including Snaefell. Lovely garden. the food in the nearest pub, The Raven, was excellent. The nearest Spa is only five minutes drive away. Good position to visit all parts of the island.
We had not been to the IOM before but loved it. Very pleasantly surprised. Great mixture of scenery; pretty glens, open moorland and impressive sea cliffs and views. Enjoyed the trains and trams. We will definitely go back in the future.
This is our 4th two week stay at this property and each time it lives up to expectations. The property is clean and well kept and has everything you need for a good base from which to go all over the island. Georgina is always on hand to make sure we have arrived ok and is a great source of info about events in the Island too. Locally there is a pub, The Raven, a 1.5 mile walk away which has great food. The north of the island around the cottage gives access to some stunning shorelines as well. We love the cottage and location and will undoubtedly be back for a 5th visit
House was situated in a lovely area. Very peaceful setting. First class accomadation, house was Very clean. Georgina was very helpful, sorting wifi out for us & also bringing my wee boy over games to keep him amused. Also a lovely gesture was cake on arrival. Will b back in the future xx
Very well situated for the racing, clean and comfortable with stunning views, a very enjoyable stay. Within a mile of what is potentially one of the best spots on the island for viewing the TT, so easily accessible by foot and in contrast such serenity can be enjoyed back at your accommodation.
The properties are situated in the countryside, yet with easy access to main roads and the famous Isle of Man, TT course,
surrounded by beautiful country side, and within close proximity to the Ballaugh Curraghs, with some great views.
Ideal for, walking holidays, cycling, and enjoying the countryside and wildlife.
The sea is never far away and there are boat trips to the Calf of Man, around the Sound and Peel, where you can see seals and basking sharks at certain times of the year at the Calf of Man. Take the many footpaths for spectacular views.
Go fishing with a temporary permit at the many reservoirs. Peel and Port Erin in the South have some lovely sandy beaches for children, and there is the lake at Moraugh park in Ramsey where children can take out paddle boats, there is a childrens play area,separate water fountain, tennis courts and two cafes. Visit Peel Castle and take a walk round Castletown and its harbour.
There are also 6/7 golf courses.
Other Activities: Diving and windsuring are about 30mins away
Golf: The island is blessed with 9 good golf courses, the nearest being in Ramsey and the rest scattered around the island.
If you require any information on any of the golf courses please contact me and I will provide these for you,
