About the neighbourhood
Close Taggart Cottages are situated in the heart of the peaceful Northern plain of the beautiful Isle of Man, a short distance from a wetland area of European importance where wallabies may be keeping an eye on you as you navigate the secret paths through the moss covered trees and royal ferns. A mile or so away are quiet sandy beaches and the pathway to hill walks or an ancient hill fort.
