A special holiday for two in our gold award cottages in the heart of the beautiful Manx countryside will make your holiday dreams come true! The cottages are set in two acres of beautiful gardens with a complimentary glass of wine waiting for your delight among the leaves in our unique tree house. Relax in a secluded summerhouse hidden deep in the garden after a game of croquet, or an energetic swing reliving childhood memories, or nap in the swinging seat!! You are already in the heart of the countryside when you enter our winding lane leading to our gold award cottages. On entering you will experience the 'wow' factor, with soft music playing, atmospheric lighting, a 'Manx kitten' welcoming you in the welcome basket and already asking if he can home with you ~ a teddy bear relaxing in the lounge alongside the fruit bowl and flowers, and offering you a bottle of wine. Outside, in the tastefully created two acre gardens, you can relive childhood experiences on the swing, or relax in one of the two summerhouses with a complimentary drink or a snack, or maybe climb among the trees into our unique treehouse and even higher viewing platform and immerse yourself in the peace and quiet of the rustling leaves as you enjoy another complimentary glass of wine. Maybe a game of croquet or bouclé is more to our taste, or just sit and relax admiring the beautiful panoramic views of the hills from one of our viewing platforms. For the more energetic why not use one of our popular self guided walks to walk to the shore, or enter the mysterious world of the wallabies just a few minutes away. They appeared on the BBC 'One Show' ~ 'the only place in the Northern hemisphere where a wild wallaby population is self sustaining' ~ but they regularly appear for our guests in the nearby ASSI and 'Ramsar' internationally important wetlands. After that you can start exploring our wonderful Isle of Man!
