Whilst on the island, be sure to taste some of the outstanding local delicacies including queenie scallops, Manx Loaghtan lamb, delicious Manx ice cream and wonderfully smokey kippers.

Whilst there enjoy a fun day out at The Curraghs Wildlife Park, home to endangered species, large cats, birds of prey, primates and family favourites such as Meerkats and Prairie Dogs.

You can travel back in time to the Victorian heyday climbing to the summit of Snaefell, the island’s highest point, on the Electric Mountain Railway or Hop on board the Steam Train to the south of the island where you can enjoy a family picnic on one of the many sandy beaches the Isle of Man has to offer at Port Erin. 


Groudle Glen Cottages are set in a beautiful hillside location, overlooking one of the island’s 18 mountain and coastal National Glens that boasts its own miniature steam railway, The Groudle Glen Railway. Beyond the glen the cottages are privy to panoramic views, both inland and out to sea, and are located just 3 miles from the island's capital, Douglas, where you will find plenty of amenities including the Sea Terminal where our ferries dock.

Groulde Glen is also a stopping point on The Manx Electric Railway, which celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2018. The vintage railway transports passengers between Douglas and Ramsey.
