Visiting the Isle of Man - key things to know

The Old Byre (Yn Shenn Vaaieagh)


From £475.00
The Old Byre (Yn Shenn Vaaieagh)


The Old Byre - Yn Shenn Vaaieagh in Manx - built of sandstone under a slate roof, is in the heart of Peel a few minutes walk from the shops, bus station, harbour and sandy beaches.  

The cottage was bought in 1830 by the present owner's great-grandfather as part of a farm. Yn Shenn Vaaieagh was then linked to the farmhouse next door by a passageway through what is now the pantry. The kitchen and small sitting room were the cow byre, the front bedrooms a hayloft with outside steps down to the yard.

Sometime in the 1800's the cowshed became a dwelling which grew over time into the present modern, comfortable house.

Today it has two double bedrooms and one twin. There's a further tiny bedroom off one of the doubles which just fits our available travel cot. The bathroom has both a bath and a shower cubicle and a there's a seperate WC.

The kitchen is equiped to a high standard with wooden work surfaces, stainless steel cookware, ample tableware and dishwasher. It retains it's original pitch pine floor and there's an opening in the 3ft thick sandstone rear wall which leads to the spacious dining/living room. There is also a snug sitting room with a wood burning stove.

Behind the house the walled, and decked, courtyard garden faces South. It's completely private and is enclosed and secure for children. Steps lead up to the garage whose main door opens onto the adjacent lane. The property also has central heating, colour TV, freezer, washing machine and tumble drier. All linen, towels and utilities are included.

The city of Peel is a little known cultural gem, sheltered by hills and by St Patrick's Isle with it ancient caslte. The beaches are safe and sandy, the picturesque harbour is alive with boats and the new heritage centre gives a fascinating insight into Peel's place in the Island's story.

From Peel it's easy to explore the magical Isle of Man. Secluded beaches, abundant wildlife, hidden glens, world famous motorsports, a surviving Victorian tram and train system and a unique Celtic and Viking past are among things that make this island a very special place to visit.
