Packet House


Packet House is one of a collection of refurbished listed buildings in an historic area of Castletown in the south of the Isle of Man. Formerly the headquarters of the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company, the oldest continually operating passenger shipping company in the world. Castletown itself is full of history and the home of a number of Manx National Heritage sites.

Packet House has been lovingly refurbished to a very high standard, with 2 double bedrooms (plus a separate infant nursery) and a comfortable open plan lounge and dining area.

Sit and enjoy the fantastic views over the harbour and across to Castletown bay from the protruding viewing gallery, part of the large open plan living area. Next door is Ellan Vannin, which sleeps 5 so could be booked together for a larger group.

Castletown is a great base for a holiday, just 5 minutes from the airport and with a wide range of bars, restaurants and cafes close by. The historic Steam Railway runs through the town connecting it with the islands capital, Douglas and the seaside villages of Port Erin and Port St Mary.

Packet House is managed by local Isle of Man holiday cottage company Island Escapes. Please visit their website to make a booking for Packet House.
