A charming original detached miner's cottage built around 1843 set within 1/6 acre gardens front & back & standing in an elevated position above the main road to Ramsey just after the Minorca crossroads .

The Isle of Man region
Situated halfway between England & Northern Island in the Irish Sea level with the Lake District,the Isle of Man is a beautiful self contained unique Island with a very warm welcoming & polite population.
There is something for everyone whether walking,cycling,climbing,diving,kayaking,sailing or just good old fashioned beach holidaymaking.
Plenty of interesting places to visit all round the Island & no where is ever very far away.
Laxey is famous for the Laxey Wheel only minutes from our traditional miner's cottage whose occupants in the 1800's would have worked as tin miners in the mine which had water pumped from it by the Laxey Wheel.
From the mine which you can visit & walk along one of the tunnels,you can ride on a narrow gauge steam train back under the main road to the gardens where the original tin ore washing floors were situated.There is now another waterwheel recently rebuilt in this area.
Laxey beach is only 8 minutes walk away downhill where there is a very nice café/ice cream counter.The beach has a shingle upper shore with a lovely flat sandy beach exposed as the tide goes out-ideal for children of all ages.
There are several restaurants &pubs in the village & Old Laxey down near the shore together with a Co-op mini supermarket,Post Office with newsagents ,Chemists,cash machine & various other specialist shops.
