ISLE OF MAN
Steeped in history, nature and wonder, the Isle of Man is a magical place to visit for the entire family. Sitting in the heart of the Irish Sea, the island is easy to reach with sailings from Heysham, Liverpool, Belfast and Dublin and when you travel by ferry you can pack everything you'll need for an unforgettable trip as there are no luggage fees to worry about.
The Isle of Man's beautifully diverse countryside provides the perfect playground for those who enjoy the great outdoors. Whether you enjoy a relaxing stroll in the countryside, love getting out on your bike, splashing about in a sea kayak, monkeying around in tree tops and anything in between the island is the perfect destination for you.
For history buffs and cultural enthusiasts the Isle of Man has a unique history and rich culture that stretches back over 10,000 years that you can enjoy any time of the year. 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.
You could travel back in time to the Victorian heyday when you take a trip on a Horse Tram across Douglas Promenade or perhaps climb to the summit of Snaefell, the island’s highest point, on the Electric Mountain Railway. 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.
CRONK BRECK FARM COTTAGES
Cronk Breck Farm Cottages were originally part of a family-run dairy farm of approximately 250 acres. There are 3 self-catering cottages in a converted barn which has a tranquil setting with panoramic views of the south of the Isle of Man. The cottages are located around 9 miles from the capital Douglas (where our port is located), 3 miles from the historic Castletown and 1 mile from the nearest village, Ballasalla, where you can hop aboard the Steam Train.
Cronk Breck is an ideal base for mountain biking with secure storage for bikes and cleaning facilities. There is easy access to trails and plantations in the south of the Isle of Man.
The Isle of Man has so much to offer, it is ideal for cycling and walking and for lovers of nature and heritage attractions. We hope you can visit soon.
