How long to stay

We are planning to be in IOM in June, after the TT.

We have not been before and are in our seventies (just) and not as agile as we would like!

We will be flying in to Douglas and staying there, and using what seems to be an excellent public bus service.

Could someone give us an idea of a length of stay so we see most of the sights, and enjoy relaxation time at a leisurely pace

Thank you

Stay for a minimum of a week, that way you can visit most of the Heritage sites and not be constantly rushing

If you drive, it may be beneficial to hire a car, as the public transport, although good, doesn't get to all parts of the Island

You will find the Isle of Man delightful, we have a lovely Gold award B&B in Port Erin which is a hub for transport by Steam train of bus around the Island and a weeks pass can include our fantastic museums .

We have a vacancy as one of our regulars has to have a hip renewal....so would be delighted to welcome you.

we are in the beautiful village of Port Erin, with the beach, eateries and transport all within a few minutes walk.

Our extensive menu has the IOM breakfast award, .

ring 01624 834614 for info.
