Description

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.

Coach House

Had a brilliant stay, the location for us was perfect as we spend a lot of time at Peel. The views were outstanding, the cows fascinating to watch. Light airy open plan. For our family everything we needed was provided. So much so we've already booked & paid deposit for next year

Fantastic staycation

We had the best time at The Coach. Great location, really comfortable with all we needed for a 4 night stay. The gardens are beautiful and we’re already missing the cows! Would highly recommend to families.

Excellent

An excellent cottage that is well maintained and provided a fantastic base from which we could explore the island. Great walks around the cottage and the cottage was very quiet and peaceful with plenty of room for our two children to explore within a safe environment.

A great find

A wonderful house in a great location. Very well converted building and beautifully equipped, with high quality fittings, linen, furniture, etc. Several thoughtful features, such as huge log supply for the wood burner, starter food pack of Manx-produced items, and binoculars. Thank you - we love it!

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.
