Our 'home from home barn' is easily accessible to the village of Laxey close to the beach and family-friendly activities. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers. Ideal as a base for walkers, cyclists and motor cycle visitors. Older children can be accommodated on our comfortable double sofa bed. We have a secure garage in which to store bikes. Full continental breakfast available, tea and coffee facilities. Please note, we don't have cooking facilities, only a kettle and a fridge.
“This is a lovely little stone barn tucked away in the heart of the Laxey countryside which is full of character, with open beams and a split, stable style door. The barn and en-suite shower and loo were very clean with hot water on tap. There is no kitchen but there is a small fridge, kettle and coffee making machine. Coffee pods, tea bags and sugar were provided along with 2 cartons of fruit juice, and 2 pints of milk. A hamper contained 2 bowels and spoons with mini packets of cereal. Cups and glasses were provided. The bed was very comfortable and there is also a sofa bed. There is a small mounted smart tv and wi-fi available. The mobile phone signal is poor. The barn is centrally heated from the main house with an electric fire for extra heat if needed. The barn is reached via a single track road in both directions, approx 1-3 miles. The road surface is in very poor condition and there are limited passing places. There is parking at the side of the road for one, potentially 2 cars. The door to the barn opens directly onto the road, there was limited traffic during our stay but you need to be alert before stepping out. Laxey has a Co-op, petrol station, pharmacy and a few other little shops, an Italian restaurant, pubs and there are 2 cafes on the promenade. We were only going to spend a couple of hours in Laxey but we ended up spending the whole day, visiting the bay, the amazing Laxey wheel and miners trail along with a trip on an electric tram which carried us up some 2000 ft to the top of Snaefell. Our host was very discrete but on hand if we needed her. The nights are super dark and extremely quite - we had the best sleeps and loved staying in the barn.”

“We were in the apartment for the second time this year and have felt very comfortable again. Jean-Paul was very fast in communication again, the check-in was uncomplicated and we were able to get to the apartment very early. The apartment is cozy, really well equipped and very clean. The sea and the center of Douglas are within easy walking distance. A absolutely recommendable apartment, we like to come a third time.”
Glenfaba guest house is located 1 minute from Douglas promenade, offers 11 en suite bedrooms, from single rooms up to quadruple and a warm Manx welcome.
“A clean, quiet, comfortable place. It was also centrally located as regards shops, restaurants, and tourist sites and activities. I was made to feel very welcome. Everyone was kind and helpful. Glenfaba is just a 30-second walk to The Promenade that runs along the beach for a couple of miles.”
