New for Summer 2022!

Garey Beg is a spacious self-catering family holiday home set in a cul-de-sac in south of the Isle of Man. Enjoy views over the south of the island out to sea at Bay Ny Carrickey and of neighbouring Port St Mary. With an extensive garden and raised patio area, Garey Beg is perfect for family groups!

The property features 4 bedrooms, consisting of one king with en-suite, a double and two twin rooms all located on the first floor. Garey Beg also has a large lounge offering comfortable seating for all guests, a well-equipped kitchen, dining room and adjoined conservatory overlooking the garden, making it an excellent space for socialising together as a group. Enjoy bar billiards in the small games room which is also includes a large selection of local interest books.

The property is situated in the small village of Colby, an ideal base to explore the south of the island. The local bus stops are nearby, as well as Colby Railway Station (request stop). From here you can head further south and visit Port Erin, a seaside town with a wonderful long sandy beach, often bustling in the warmer months. If a tour of the ancient capital of the Isle of Man is up your street, hop on the bus or train into Castletown. Visit Castle Rushen, a well-preserved medieval castle built for a Viking king! Stay onboard for Douglas, the modern capital of the island. From Douglas the island is your oyster, with bus services to the north of the island and the Manx Electric Railway, providing a scenic view of the island's east coast to Ramsey via Laxey.

The Isle of Man is the only entire country to be granted UNESCO Biosphere status, and together with its unique culture and heritage sites, it offers outstanding walks of majestic scenery and waterfalls, including the internationally accredited Raad Na Foillan – “The Way of the Gull”. The Millennium Walk traverses the internal parts of the Island, offering up the majestic splendour of the peaks, and our very own mountain Snaefell, reachable by the aforementioned Manx Electric Railway!

There is some scenery a bit more local to Garey Beg too. Colby Glen, one of the Manx national glens is a couple of minutes walk up the road from the cottage, a small 5 acre glen it has its own charm, especially in the spring and early summer when wild bluebells and primroses are found in profusion. The local pub and convenience shop is just a short walk away as well.

All in all, for a family group, or just a group of friends, Garey Beg has much to offer all groups. Visit the Isle of Man's heritage sites, immerse yourself in the Island’s unique culture, enjoy the majestic scenery, or take part in some of the many adventure pursuits.

Plenty of parking is available on the driveway.

Lovely property in a lovely part of the island

Very high-quality large property with large garden and patio in a good location. There is a shop, pub and bus stop 5 minute walk from the house. The beach and local town is a 10 minute bus or car journey, which makes it easy to plan days and evenings by the beach! Perfect for families. The property is lovely inside with new bathrooms, very comfy beds and big receptions rooms with lots of places to sit and eat as a group. The house was clearly a family home and there are still lots of memories and precious items in the house, and there are lots of memories to still be made! Overall, great property and would highly recommend!

Immaculate and spacious house. Huge garden with hideaway spots. You feel bad going out it’s so good.
