DescriptionPargys is a wonderful old Manx cottage, tastefully renovated and modernised, whilst maintaining a traditional cosy feel, making it a truly memorable holiday home. Whether it’s a summer visit to enjoy all that goes on the Isle of Man or a cosy winter break or staycation, Pargys is a welcoming and comfortable retreat at any time of the year.
Pargys sleeps up to five people in three bedrooms. On the first floor there is a double bedroom, a second bedroom containing two adult sized comfortable single beds, and on the ground floor a single bedroom.
There is a modern fitted kitchen including a washing machine, fridge and freezer.
The dining room has a dining table to seat up to six people, also tucked away in this room are a dishwasher and tumble dryer.
The cosy sitting room has a magnificent Manx "Chiollagh" stone fireplace with wood burning stove and comfortable seating.
You can sit and relax outside in the very pretty south facing cottage garden ( a real sun trap in the summer) at the end of the day, enjoying a glass of your favourite tipple or enjoying a barbecue.
An excellent base for enjoying the beauty and all that goes on in the Isle of Man or for just relaxing and soaking up the atmosphere in the peaceful hamlet of Fistard.
The bus service in this area of the island is very frequent, including services to the Airport and Ferry port. The nearest stop is just five minutes away from Pargys. The Isle of Man Steam Railway which runs from Port Erin to Douglas has a halt at Port St Mary. Also at Port St Mary you will find the sailing club and boats offering fishing excursions and trips to the Calf of Man, and trips for scuba diving, and basking shark/dolphin/minke whale spotting.
Port Saint Mary Golf course is minutes on foot from the cottage, and Port Erin Golf course is just a few minutes by car.
The Raad Ny Foillan coastal path is just a five minute walk from the cottage.

A great base for the IsleAn ideal base in the Port of St Mary. Pargys is ideal for a family and has great size rooms. It also has a lovely garden area. Parking can be an issue as it is on stret parking that can be busy. If you had 2 cars you would really struggle. Due to the age of the property, it is damp and smelt very musty... need to leave windows open. Even though it was July we needed the heating on in the evening, as it was cold inside. The beds are very comfy, and the linen was spotless, the house was clean inside and basics provided like toilet roll and hand soap/washing liquid (had been very watered down though) There are many island escapes properties in the area that I would look at next time rather than here due to the condition of the house. If the damp problem was addressed and minor improvements made, then I would happily stay again.

Lovely cottage, shame it's up a huge hill!Very happy with the cottage itself: Well equipped, lovely garden, quiet and comfortable. The description prior to booking has some glaring omissions/inaccuracies! The 'pin' dropped on the map to show location shows it before the nearby golf course, when it is after. This made it difficult for us to locate on the first night. The description states 5 minutes from the nearest bus stop - it doesn't say BY CAR! And up a VERY steep hill! Hauling our cases the first night we were almost ready to give up when we were rescued by some friendly locals who helped us get there. In fact, even without cases I think the quickest we made it up the hill was about 17 minutes. I am mobility challenged and this climb was so difficult we had to plan our holiday around only doing it once a day. This clearly had an impact on our itinerary. Also the description states it is 200m from the beach. If this is meant to be Perwick Bay that is at the bottom of a cliff. The nearest accessible swimming beach is Chapel Beach in Port St Mary - another half mile or so on from the steep walk to the nearest bus stop, which itself is over half a mile. The description needs to be amended to accurately reflect the location challenges. With a car however, this would be a lovely place to stay. On foot, and with any mobility issues, definitely not!

A lovely cottageMy friend and I visited May 2023. The cottage was lovely. Well equipped and very clean. The area was handy for visiting the whole island as well as what quickly became our favourite place: the Sound. Thank you.

A little gem!Stayed here with our grown up children, plenty of space for all and everything we needed in the house. Very comfortable in a peaceful location and a short walk to Perwick Beach, which is stunning. Would definitely recommend to others.

stay at praysThe cottage is lovely but smells damp and the "double bed" was much too narrow for two adults to sleep on. Otherwise the place is lovely and had everything you need

Everything we neededThe house had enough space for us and everything we needed for our stay. The beds are super comfortable and the linen felt clean and fresh. The garden felt secluded and Fistard is very quiet and peaceful. As with lots of Manx buildings, Pargys is pretty damp, and we had to crank up the central heating on the first night (in July) to chase the cold out. Two of the bedrooms are upstairs but there is a small back bedroom off the living room (built into the hill). Luckily we didnt need to use it because it absolutely stank of fox. This is a bit strange as there are no foxes on the Isle of Man, and there wasnt much else in the room other than the bed.
