We had an amazing week in this beautiful cottage - clean, comfortable, light and airy, and well equipped. The master bedroom was lovely and we appreciated having an en suite, albeit very small! I did find the shower just too small so used the bathroom...More

About the neighbourhood
Fisherman's Cottage is located on Minorca Hill, just a couple of minutes' walk from a local Italian restaurant (La Mona Lisa), a traditional pub with micro brewery (The Shore Hotel), the harbour and beach. There is a small children's playground by the promenade and a beach cafe and juice bar (The Shed) within easy walking distance.
In the newer part of the village there is a convenience store, petrol station, Post Office, newsagents, more pubs, shops and cafes and the Manx Electric Railway Station.
The Laxey Woolen Mill is well worth a visit to see the traditional Manx tartan or to shop for souvenirs, and the world famous Lady Isabella (The Great Laxey Wheel) is a must-see for all visitors to Laxey.
Getting around
Laxey has great public transport links; there is a circular bus which passes right by the cottage during the summer months and does a loop around Old Laxey and into the newer part of the village where the shops, restaurants and the Manx Electric Railway (MER) station are.
The MER is over a hundred years old and you can travel from Laxey station to Ramsey in the North or to Douglas; or you can board the Snaefell Mountain Railway to the summit of the highest peak on the island.
Regular buses also serve the main part of the village travelling to and from Douglas and Ramsey.
Car not needed
