About

"Surfside" is situated on Falcon Hill in Port Erin with outstanding views over the Bay. Turn left out of the front door, and it is 40 yards to the beach and the wonderful horseshoe promenade. Turn right, and within a 100 yards you are in the centre of the village, close to shops, restaurants and hostelries - yet stay inside and you have total seclusion. Total seclusion yes - but not at the expense of some of wonderful views from the panoramic window in the main living room, which looks west to the Mountains of Mourne- imagine this backdrop to a wonderful sunset! Ample car parking is available near to the property. From the outside Surfside looks deceptively small, but this is misleading! As the property is set into the hillside, the main living room (with TV, with freesat, DVD and Ipod), study and kitchen are on the first floor. Going downstairs you will find the master bedroom, with fantasic views, bathroom with separate bath and shower, utility room and a large conservatory - outside the conservatory there is a small enclosed ornamental garden.

The conservatory is generously furnished with appropriately styled tables, chairs and soft furnishings.

All towels are included (excluding beach towels which you would need to provide yourselves), together with complimentary toiletries. All bedding and pillows are hypo-allergenic. Bedding, towels and tea-towels are changed weekly.

The fully equipped kitchen comprises an electric cooker, microwave, fridge freezer and the usual range of accessories.

The master bedroom has full length fitted wardrobes, bedside units with lamps, alarm clock and hair dryer.

The utility area houses a washer-dryer, ironing board and iron, laundry basket, and also has ample coat storage facilities.

The building is centrally heated, and the period pine flooring on the first floor provides the final “country cottage” feel. However, for that romantic winter getaway, Surfside has a traditional log burner which gives the cottage a wonderful cosy atmosphere!

WHAT’S IN THE LOCALITY?

Port Erin is situated on the south west side of the island, and has the magnificent Bradda Head as an outstanding natural feature. For the energetic who enjoy walking, the neighbouring village of Port St Mary is an easy 20 minutes walk – also within reasonable walking distance is the working 19th century crofters village of Cregneash (generally summer months only). From Cregneash, it is only a short distance to “the Sound”, the southernmost end of the island, where a natural history café/restaurant is situated, and visitors can enjoy wonderful views of the Calf of Man (a small island just off the south coast of the Isle of Man which is a protected area), together with the hosts of lounging sea lions – and very inquisitive they are too!

The Calf of Man can be visited very easily by taking a short coastal boat trip from Port Erin. As a protected nature reserve, the Calf is well worth a visit, but please remember that there are no facilities there, and if you work up an appetite undertaking the wonderful walks available, make sure you’ve got a packed lunch with you!

Moving northwards, Castletown (the original capital of the Isle of Man) is about 5 miles away. If you don’t want to walk, try taking the train – and don’t mix this train up with the type you might be used to in the UK! Narrow gauge and Victorian, this is really an experience not to be missed! Castletown itself boasts a magnificent castle, and regular re-enactments of ancient parliament meetings are worth taking in. Further north you will find Douglas, Laxey and Ramsey, and to the west the charming fishing village of Peel.

Surfside has a full complement of maps, walking guides, and local information as to what to do or where to go. Whether you want an activity holiday kayaking or flying down a zip-wire, or visit Erin Arts Centre to listen to a musical recital, the details are available for you read and decide.

Map & Directions

Road Directions

If you do not know the island well, probably the easiest way to get to Port Erin is via Castletown, simply follow the roadsigns. As you enter the centre of the village (Station Road) you will see in front of you a set of traffic lights signifying a pedestrian crossing. Take the left hand turning immediately after these (Strand Road), and follow the road as it bends to the right towards the sea. At the beach, as the road bends left, you need to turn right into Shore Road. After 20 yards there are a number of parking spaces on your right – park in one of these. From here you will be able to see “ Surfside” half way up Falcon Hill (which is a small pedestrianised lane running up to towards the cottage). 

Public Transport Directions

Port Erin enjoys excellent bus and train links to Douglas and the North and also to west of the island. Regular buses are available to the airport.

The cottage has ample free parking available near to the cottage.
