“Beautiful cottage with first class accommodation in an excellent location.”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2014

We received a very warm welcome from the owner. The cottage is homely, beautiful and spotlessly clean. The accommodation is first class with top quality furniture, fixtures and fittings. It is a short walk into Castletown and with bus stops within yards of the front door it is easy to reach many other places of interest. We had a wonderful holiday and would stay here again. Wi-fi/internet access would be useful.

“Lovely cottage with brilliant service”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2013

We stayed for a week. Easy trip from ferry. Plenty to do with great scenery and views from cottage. Very thoughtful provisions and everything done to a very high standard and the highest standard cottage we have stayed in. Personal service from Kim and nothing was too much trouble. Although no internet there was great signal with really cheap mobile deal. Deposit mailed back to us the day we left.

“An excellent cottage that I would highly recommend”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2013

This has to be the best holiday cottage that we have stayed in. It is in an excellent location, just a short walk from Castletown centre yet with distant views of Port St Mary and the Calf of Man and great coastal walks nearby. The cottage is spacious, well equipt and tastefully furnished, the welcome package containing local Manx produce was greatly appreciated as was the ample supply of washing liquids, dishwasher tablets etc, all the things you forget to pack! An excellent cottage made unique by the attention and care of the owner, well done Kim hope we can get in next time we come to the Isle of Man.
