Only two miles from the centre of Douglas, Oakhill Cottage is a traditional Manx stone building set in the beautiful Manx countryside at Port Soderick alongside the Isle of Man Steam Railway.
The cottage consists of a double bedroom (with an en-suite shower room), a twin bedroom, a living room, kitchen / dining room with a downstairs bathroom. Outside there is a small garden with patio furniture and a garden shed with sufficient storage space for bikes.
The living room features widescreen TV, Sky+ digital satellite tuner (including Sky Sports & Sky Movies), multi change CD, surround sound system and a recordable DVD player. There are a range of DVDs including plenty of choice for children. You will also find books, magazines and tourist information.
The kitchen features delightful hand crafted units together with all the modern equipment you could need. Among the equipment you will find a new electric cooker, gas rings, a fridge, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, radio / CD player, and enough crockery and cooking utensils for your every need. Under the stairs, just off the kitchen, you will find an iron and iron boarding.
A dining area consisting of a pine table and benches can be found on one side of the kitchen.
The washing machine is in the bathroom and the tumble drier and freezer in the garden shed.
The double bedroom features exposed beams. In addition to built in pine wardrobes and cupboard space we provide a dressing table, bedside units with lights, a TV (including a satellite tuner for free to air channels and best reception), hair dryer and CD/radio. The shower room contains an electric shower, WC, pedestal basin and shaver socket.
Designed with children in mind, the twin bedroom has two single pine beds, a TV/video (with free satellite channels), CD/radio, Playstation 2 and a computer with free broadband internet access.
If you would like to bring your laptop, you can access our wireless broadband internet network without charge.
We can provide a cot and high chair if required and there are a number of small toys for the very young. The twin bedroom is also delightful for one or two adults with its exposed beams, bedside lights, pine furniture and built in wardrobe.
We normally clean and prepare the cottage ourselves. Occasionally we employ cleaners but cleanliness is one of our highest priorities. We operate a very strict no smoking rule to ensure that all of our guests are able to fully enjoy the cleanliness and decor.
There is one off road parking space (width of gates 8' 10"; length 15') and road side parking immediately next to the cottage.
Please note that the stairs are quite steep and that there is no handrail.
