DescriptionWaverley Cottage is a delightful single storey self-catering holiday cottage located in Laxey, Isle of Man, just a few minutes walk from the beach and harbour.
Sleeping six people across three bedrooms, it is perfect for a family group, it's also dog friendly with one small dog allowed. The property also has a large south facing sunny garden, with parking for up to three vehicles on the drive.
Laxey is a wonderful village about 10-15 minutes drive from the ferry at Douglas and about 30-40 minutes from the airport. Waverley Cottage is just a short walk to shops, pubs and the famous Manx Electric Railway! In fact, the cottage is located just under the tram bridge and you can hear the quaint toot-toot of the old Victorian trams. Why not catch a tram to take you into either Douglas, Ramsey or up to Snaefell summit.
Laxey harbour is about a 5 - 10 minute walk and has a great beach. Laxey beach is a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike, watch the kayakers, paddleboarders and sea swimmers take to the water in the summer months, and in the winter simply enjoy watching the waves roll in! At the end of the Promenade is The Shed – rapidly establishing itself as one of the go-to destinations on the Island for coffee and cakes, with comfy outdoor seating and plenty of throws and blankets to keep any chill away.

Great accomodation in very good locationWaverley is extremely comfortable and well equipped (although no Washing Machine which could be a problem for some).The location is near perfect for Laxey tram station which has connections to all parts of the island. Although limited Pub/Restaurant availability at time of our visit this is to greatly improve with the imminent refurbishment of the Shore Hotel in Laxey. We would certainly like to return to this property at some future date. This was our fourth visit to IOM since 2007 and by far the best!

Very nice bungalowVery nice clean bungalow, with everything you might need (washing machine not a problem for us), a welcome pack of essentials, milk, cheese, bread and spread was a lovely surprise. Dishwasher was a bonus.

Pleasant cottage with excellwnt amenities.The cottage became very warm during the heatwave and a couple of fans would have helped. Not too many windows! DVD player not there though according to one description one was supposed to be available. Low height of extractor over hot plate gave a few banged heads. However, cottage is still excellent value and very pleasant!

Perfect spotWaverley is in the perfect spot for going to all points on the island . Convenient for the beach, for trams and for the Snaefell railway. It was everything we needed for our week away and would happily book again if we were to return.

no titleTHIS COTTAGE SHOULD COME WITH SOME HEALTH WARNINGS 1 LIVING WITHOUT A WASHING MACHINE FOR A WEEK IS NO JOKE ESPECIALLY WHEN THE LAUNDRY IS EFFECTIVELY CLOSED MID-WEEK - WE WERE LUCKY INASMUCH THAT THE WEATHER WAS FINE FOR OUTDOOR DRYING. IN SUCH A BIG KITCHEN AREA, THE LACK OF SUCH A BASIC PIECE OF EQUIPMENT IS INEXPLICABLE. 2 THE COTTAGE IS TOTALLY UNSUITABLE FOR OLDER, LESS MOBILE VISITORS AND PRE-SCHOOL CHILDREN AS THE OUTDOOR AREAS PRESENT FREQUENT STEPS AND POTENTIAL TRIP AND FALL HAZARDS 3 THE KITCHEN IS HUGE, WITH THE CAPACITY TO PREPARE BANQUETS FOR LARGE GROUPS BUT LACKS SOME VERY BASIC IMPLEMENTS LIKE A LIFT FOR FRIED EGGS AND A GRIP FOR FRIED SAUSAGES IE ONE THAT ACTUALLY WORKS POINT 3 IS INCONVENIENT AND ALMOST TRIVIAL BUT POINTS 1 AND 2 ARE IMPORTANT AND SHOULD BE ADDRESSED.

Well equipped, comfortable bungalow in an excellent location in LaxeyWow! We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Waverley. The bungalow is well equipped with a lovely garden and more than adequate off road parking. It feels spacious and has been very well maintained. It is very dog friendly - our little lad loved it! For those preferring not to drive, it is a 3 minute walk to the local stop on the electric railway, with a bus stop only a minute or two further up the hill. Both provide good connections to buses / the steam train serving other parts of the Isle of Man. It is also only a short walk (downhill) to the harbour and shore, which boasts a good pub and two cafes, both with sea views. Also an Italian restaurant. If space permitted a washing machine would be great for longer stays, but given the configuration of the kitchen this might be difficult to install. Many thanks to Island Escapes and the property owners.

First impressionOn arrival cottage appeared clean. However on closer inspection the cleanliness wasnt up to my expectations or standards. Black mould round shower tray and mouldy shower mat that should have been replaced before guests arrived. Its a shame as the shower room is quite new but this wasnt great to see or shower in. Kitchen cupboard fronts were sticky in some places so a good wash with sugar soap would sort that. Plenty of kitchen items but some need replacing I.e. the mugs. The oven needs steam cleaning as there is burnt on fat that smells when turned on. I think the cleaning had been rushed as very dusty floors. If these things were resolved then its a great place to stay just a few tweaks needed. The owners have been let down .

Excellent findWould definitely recommend this property, great location for village, shop, pub and sea front. Although you must note this property is on a hill so maybe a slow walk home from the pub. Excellent condition with all the usual facilities and a large power shower.
