Staycation in the Isle of Man

A cancelled summer holiday abroad has paled into insignificance in comparison to everything else. However a staycation in the Isle of Man maybe just the ticket and a change of scenery with the family and the dog would be lovely. A staycation in Port Erin may be the answer...


There are endless walking routes from Port Erin. How about a relaxing stroll to Port St Mary, Gansey Bay then back to Port Erin. Or a stroll to Castletown to view the historic Castle Rushen, and wander through the streets of the ancient Capital. Extend the walk to include Langness for perfect views before a peaceful night in Palm Villa.


A hike up to Milner's Tower for photographs and a well-earned picnic in the beautiful Manx sunshine would be beautiful. Following the path back to Bradda Head, and a meander through Bradda Glen via the famous abandoned open air swimming baths built in 1899 is a great way to get our daily exercise. If you are feeling energetic, a walk over The Sloc will kill a few hours, followed by a well deserved take-out supporting the local restaurants of Port Erin.  


Letting the dog run around on Port Erin's glorious sandy beach is a treat, with the perfect opportunity for you to be amongst the community whilst still social distancing. It a beautiful spot to grab a coffee from Palm Villa, and have a read with your toes in the sand. 


Hiring a bike from Erin Bike Hut  and heading out for a cycle is a great way to get some family exercise, with lots of routes here .  

Stay in!

Board-games, Xbox, Netflix and a home cooked meal. Family fun indoors is always even more fun when its in a holiday home, and here are even more ideas..
