About the neighbourhood
Situated in an idyllic location on a small farm surrounded by farmland yet only 2 miles from the town of Ramsey and 2 miles from the Village of Andreas with village shop, Pub/Inn and school.
Getting around
A car is needed to explore a lot of the sights. There are also several Victorian railways, a steam train which leaves Douglas to Port Erin, a Victorian electric railway that goes from Ramsey (2 miles away) to Douglas and stopping at Laxey where you can take the mountain railway to the top of Snaefell. The Manx National Heritage sites are well worth visiting while you are here and all the brochures are in the cottage.
