Stayed here with our 2 boys in June and had few days. Comfortable, relaxing and well equipped cottage. My boys loved it and we enjoyed the hot tub in some fair weather without issue.
We intend to return someday to this secluded little part of the IOM.

If you like peace, with lovely scenery then this is for you.
Many thanks to the owners.
The only down side was that i couldn't find a pen to write a nice message in the visitors book!

Beautiful property in a beautiful location but you definitely need a car ! We brought our motorbike and it was not an ideal road for that. Apart from that it was a brilliant property and has everything you require and more.

Many thanks for your review and feedback. The upper stretch of road to us has now finally been repaired by the Department of Imfrastructure following the flood damage over the winter and we hope the rest will be resurfaced soon. It is still fine for cars as you say.

We like isolated places but then a car is a necessity if you want to explore the rest of the island. The cottage had certain disadvantages: the floors sloped, it was cold at night in the bedroom and steps up and down to each room would be a pain for those with old knees!
Everything you could possibly want was provided inside the cottage, including a welcome pack of food. The log fire was effective in the lounge and the hot tub was brilliant, with its view of the newborn lambs frolicking against the background of hills. There are some good walks to be had from the cottage if you don't want to go too far. The owners are very welcoming and helpful.
We expected wi fi access but this was not possible.

Many thanks for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. I thought I had fixed the WiFi problem for you as you didn't get back to me to say it still wasn't working - sorry for this. It is now sorted! You didn't mention the bedroom being cold during your stay - again we would have been very happy to sort this out (the problem was that the radiator in the living room was turned up too high). Many thanks again for your feedback.

Stayed here for 3 nights, absolutely amazing! Both owners are so lovely and helpful! Welcome pack of bread butter and jam was lovely! Cottage was such a hidden gem and hot tub is fab. It is out the way, but we liked that, taxi to douglas is 12-15 quid. Really enjoyed the stay already planning to return

What a delightful cottage. Although we only stayed 3 nights, we had a lovely first visit to the island and the cottage is very central for getting around - though a car is essential. It was well equipped and very cozy. My friend ventured into the jacuzzi whilst i enjoyed a glass of wine overlooking the moorlands in the early evening. Would definitely book this cottage again!

“Very lovely, very quiet but not suitable for people with mobility issues.”

We have just had 2 quiet weeks at the cottage. There is everything you could wish for at the cottage and the bedding is high quality. The bed was sooo comfortable it was difficult to get up. However on the down side, although the add said entrance was not suitable for wheelchairs, the whole cottage is not suitable for anyone with mobility problems. It is built on such a slope that every room has steps to go up & down and they were big steps which would have been better had there been hand holds but there were none. The lounge & bedroom floor also slopped, the bedroom especially. The patio and hot tub was a bit disappointing as it was right alongside the main driveway so no privacy. If you are in full health it is a lovely place to stay and the owners are very friendly as are the cats & chickens.

Many thanks for your feedback. We updated the listing to make it clear that the cottage is "not suitable for small children or those with reduced mobility, due to sloping floors and steps between rooms." The slopes are because the cottage is an original Manx stone cottage built on a hill. We also updated the photos of the patio area to show that it is next to the driveway.

Perfect little cottage, with stunning views of the Island. Well equipped and comfortable, a home away from home. We loved our holiday, Island life and the Manx way, it hard not to relax and take things easily in such an exceptional surrounding.
