DescriptionNew for 2021!
Originally a part of the Old House of Keys, the historic former home of Manx politics, Keys Cottage is one of a collection of listed buildings in an historic area of Castletown in the south of the Isle of Man. Beautifully refurbished to a high standard, guests can expect a luxurious experience.
The tasteful combination of modern features such as motorised Velux windows while original features like the exposed wooden beams ensures the retention of its heritage. Stylish furnishings bring it all together to provide a naturally homely feeling to this property.
Sleeping four across two double bedrooms, a double sofa bed can also be made up on request in the upstairs lobby area to allow the property to sleep 6 people. It's perfect for a small group to explore the south of the island. If part of a larger group, book with either Ellan Vannin or Packet House which are just around the corner.
The comfortable open plan living area contains a well-equipped kitchen that extends through to the living area, which benefits from natural light provided by the overhead windows and the added cosiness of a log burner.
Castletown is a great base for a holiday, just 5 minutes from the airport and with a wide range of bars, restaurants and cafes close by. The historic Steam Railway runs through the town connecting it with the islands capital, Douglas and the seaside villages of Port Erin and Port St Mary.

Brilliant locationVery attractive cottage in a brilliant location. Restaurants in easy walking distance and a parking permit for the convenient car park was provided along with a welcome pack of essentials.

WonderfulWe had 4 nights here, right in the centre of Castletown, a great location. We are 2 couples, there is plenty of room, the bedrooms and bathrooms are very comfortable. This is a very well appointed house, everything is perfect, high end quality. The kitchen has everything and more. Parking is at the back of the building, no problem at all. All in all a great place to stay. AAA+

Stylish cottage in great locationWe loved the situation of Keys Cottage, close to the sea and facilities in Castletown. Parking was easy. There is a permit provided for the car park at the rear of the house and accessible from the back door. The downstairs kitchen/lounge/diner was stylish and worked very well. Useful to have a utility room with washer dryer. 1st floor bedroom has a comfortable king-size bed and a shower room across the landing. Top floor bedroom is huge with superking bed and ensuite shower room. The lower windows do not have curtains, so we ended up blocking the light out with bags and spare pillows. This needs sorting out. Would stay again.

What a superb place !Fabulous home to stay....no expense spared..everything inside was absolutely top notch.....perfect. Great location..accessible to everywhere....parking outside in quiet street...buses, trams, train if you want them but island best seen with car or bike ...couldn't ask for better.

Perfect Staycation!Ive recently spent an amazing few days at the lovely Keys Cottage in Castletown with family and had a great time. The cottage is homely, extremely clean and provides everything you could possibly need. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in Castletown it is a great location with bus routes, train station, shops, pubs, cafes/restaurants and attractions on your doorstep.

Lovely smart clean cottage, very convenient for the village.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and all the cottage furnishings were excellent quality and we had everything we needed. The South of the Island has so much to offer, it is a perfect base. Our only comment is that the mattress was not very comfortable, the pillows too soft, and the bedding was too hot. Lower tog bedding with a blanket available would be better. Of course, this is just our preference!

Outstanding stay at Keys Cottage CastletownFabulous cottage, high quality accommodation and incredibly high spec premises. Highly recommended! All bed linen, towels, toiletries are the white company . All appliances and equipment is John Lewis and it has all the mod cons. Netflix, automatic Blinds, auto closing roof windows if it rains! A dyson hoover and hand held version. Quality throughout and very spacious.

Staycation in CastletownWe stayed at Keys Cottage Castletown, our three nights stay was a welcome break and Castletown is an ideal place to visit. The cottage is of a very high standard it is well equipped with everything you need from home comforts to kitchen equipment included, the beds are also comfortable which is a must for us as we both have back issues.There is a permit for parking in the car park which the cottage backs on to, you can also gain access into the cottage through the back door too. There are plenty of lovely places to eat in and around Castletown which we took full advantage of during our stay. We had lovely weather and spent some time exploring Castletown and relaxing in the Square, which now has a seating area with deck chairs, a lovely addition and is a great place to just sit, relax and people watch. All in all it was a lovely Staycation we can highly recommend the accommodation, you won't be disappointed if you choose to use Island Escapes.
