Close to the west coast of the Isle of Man, The Old Coach House is set in its own extensive grounds with a large lawn, decked seating area and lovely uninterrupted views over the surrounding countryside. The setting is peaceful and secluded, providing the perfect getaway but still just a short car journey from Peel and St Johns.

A beautiful recent conversion and restoration updated the property to a high specification, including the installation of underfloor heating. Many original features remain, including the fireplace and slate cladding. These features combine to ensure The Old Coach House to be a comfortable holiday cottage which lovingly acknowledges its rich history.

The Old Coach House provides an ideal base for walking; the Steam Train Heritage Trail is nearby as is Peel Hill and the Raad Ny Foillan coastal footpath. Take advantage of this year-round; the warmer months are perfect for a sunny day out to Peel to enjoy all the seaside has to offer! Follow this with a trip to Niarbyl to witness the panoramic views for sunset, before hurrying back to The Old Coach House to enjoy a drink on the decking. In the colder months, why go anywhere?! Cosy up, light the log burner and experience a the chilling country weather from the toasty comfort of your sofa and a good book.

Despite being in the countryside, there's still plenty to see and do. Peel, a working fishing port with historical significance, is just two miles away. Visit Peel Castle and The House of Manannan, discover the culinary delights on offer from fresh ice cream to today's catch and explore the mazy streets and the town's independent shops.

Ian, Tenbury Wells - July 11 "Absolutely Excellent "

We have had a wonderful holiday, based at The Old Coach House. The cottage is well-equipped and was spotlessly clean. We enjoyed the lovely views and visits to all the local beauty spots. We loved the log burner on chilly evenings.

Tony, Bridgwater - May 29 "A beautiful refurbishment of an old Coach House"

A wonderful house in a superb location. All facilities you will need, tastefully done. Situated in farmland with cows gently plodding to fields and birds singing in the trees. There is so much to see on the island. We had a great week.

Guest, Dunstable - April 21 "A beautiful setting"

The old coach house has stunning views and great character. The cosy fire was a treat on rainy, cold days. When the sun shone the children loved playing in the beautiful garden. A really delightful place to stay, tucked away from it all.

Guest, Sittingbourne - October 9, 2023 "A different place"

We are walkers and cyclists, and the Coach House suited our needs perfectly. There was a fully stocked kitchen, a lovely bathroom with shower and bath, and plenty of space to live in whilst there. We walked the coastline, walked Snaefell and also took a tram ride up Snaefell, dined out on the Steam Train, and cycled the heritage path from Peel to Douglas and back again. Took full advantage of the Manx National Heritage Site Holiday Pass - visiting the Laxey Wheel x 2, Manx Museum and Peel Castle.

Lorna, Coventry - July 30, 2023 "Away from the madding crowd!"

My son and I spent a relaxing week exploring the island from this cosy, comfortable base which was well-equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed watching the cows come and go in their daily routine, as well as spotting rabbits and birds, over breakfast and in the evenings. The peaceful location was a refreshing break from our normal town and city existence. The DVD of 'The Isle of Man from the Air', which we found in a drawer in the cottage, gave us excellent background information which helped us to get more from our visit. It was good to know we had a little haven to return whenever we were tired or the weather closed in on us.

Claire, Belfast - April 22, 2023 "Idyllic stay at The Old Coach House"

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - from the moment we drove into the pretty daffodil lined lane way and the quaint cottage came into view we knew we’d found somewhere special. The cottage was very well equipped & comfortable, right down to providing bathrobes and slippers - a lovely touch. Beds were comfortable and the shower hot and powerful. Located near to the village of Patrick, we found it excellently situated to tour the island with nowhere much more than a twenty minute drive. We were able to pack a lot into our 3 day stay - the kids loved the various train and tram rides, the wildlife park provided much entertainment to adults and children alike and there were many times driving around the views we saw simply took our breath away - we were lucky to see the island in the spring sunshine and it was truly beautiful. From seeing seals at the point of Ayre lighthouse (& wow what a beach!) to the view down at the Sound Cafe looking out to the Calf of Man, and standing at the top of the Laxey wheel to eating ice cream in Peel not to mention all the places in between…we certainly saw and did a lot and have made some lovely memories to look back on with great fondness. Thank you for such a wonderful stay.

Sabine, Ferney-voltaire - April 4, 2023 "Manx Paradise"

We have stayed at the Coach House many times over the years and we keep being drawn back as it is a truly magical place. Secluded, calm and cosy, the views over rolling countryside are amazing. Everything is functional and comfortable. Nothing beats an early evening by the fire after a day’s walking in the many Manx glens.

Susan, Neath. - March 14, 2023 "A Beautifully Quiet Retreat"

The Coach House is the perfect place to stay if you want a quiet, relaxing place to stay on the Isle of Man. It is a very comfortable self catering property, that is well furnished with everything you could need for your stay. It is well placed, a mile or so from Peel, which makes it a good base to explore from, and only 20 minutes from the Airport. There are a few good, local restaurants within easy driving distance and a reasonable size Co-op for shopping about 10 minutes drive away.

Lauren, Ballasalla - November 17, 2022 "We love it here"

For myself and my partner, this is our second time staying at The Coach House. For us, it’s perfect. It’s isolated so you get the benefit of the peace and quite but only 10-15 minutes from Peel as and when you need food or want to go out for a meal. We love the layout and the open plan kitchen and lounge and the wood burner is the best bit. The wood basket and kindling is always full to the brim so you can have many cosy nights in.

Guest, Princes Risborough - October 28, 2022 "Great location"

Well-located and well-equipped property. Mostly very comfortable, but sofas very dirty (partly explained by the signs saying that, if the doors are left open, the dog from the adjoining farm will sit on the furniture). The garden is more open to the farm than the website pictures suggest. Generous supply of logs and kindling but lighter provided didn’t work and only two matches and two firelighters provided. Knives and scissors very blunt.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Old Coach House. The wood burning stove made the sitting room cosy when it rained. It is with walking distance to Peel which has lots of eating places and there are great walks along the coast to Glen Maye.

Christopher, Cockermouth - October 6, 2022 "Peaceful & relaxing!"

The Coach House is a lovely, cosy & comfortable cottage in a rural location, but only a couple of miles from Peel. The cottage was very well equipped & had comfortable beds with crisp bed linen, fluffy towels, bathrobes & slippers! The wood burner kept us snug on cool evenings & there were plenty of logs to keep us going. The cottage is ideal for chilling out & having a peaceful & relaxing time. The garden area would be perfect for families with children. We would be very happy to stay at the Coach House if we visit the Isle of Man again. We would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Madeline, South Shields - August 7, 2021 "Lovely property with a gorgeous garden."

The property is lovely and full of character, there are lots of home comforts, a well equipped kitchen and the beds were so comfortable! The best thing is the huge garden, we went as a family of 4 and the children loved the open space. There’s a lovely decked area with amazing views of the area, it’s so peaceful and the sky at night is amazing.. we’ve not seen as many stars in the sky before! The cottage is in such a peaceful location but is very close to Peel and it’s easy to get to in a car or a taxi. All in all a great stay and I would definitely recommend.
