THIE YN DROGHAD

Welcome to your holiday home by the sea

The perfect location for a Manx staycation!

 

With Laxey beach on your doorstep – and surrounded by walks and beautiful scenery – you can fill your days with activity or relax by the harbourside and take in the view.

Welcome

 

Set in a beautiful harbourside location, Thie yn Droghad is the perfect seaside retreat. A cosy chalet full of character and charm with everything you need for a break away from it all.

Nestled beside the Laxey river with a view across to the harbour, the south-facing garden is the perfect place to relax and watch the world go by.

Laxey beach and promenade are just a few minutes stroll over the bridge – with stones and pebbles at high water, and a long sandy beach at low water, it’s the perfect place to go rock-pooling, wander along the shore, or enjoy creating castles in the sand!

And when you’re ready for a break there’s a choice of two beach-side cafes, a cosy local pub, and a friendly italian restaurant – all within a stone’s throw.

A wonderful, spacious chalet that sleeps 4 in two bedrooms, each with its own private bath or shower room.

Cosy and warm, Thie yn Droghad is full of character and charm – perfect for a break away from it all.

The open plan living room, dining room and kitchen have everything you need to enjoy your stay, including a games box and books to keep you occupied when you’re not out exploring the island.

The tranquil south-facing garden is equipped with table and chairs and a BBQ so you can make the most of the view and enjoy your time outdoors.

With a dishwasher and washing machine (and a launderette just across the road) you can lighten the load and make sure your holiday time is spent doing the things you enjoy.

Availability

Bookings are usually weekly starting on a Saturday.

However, we’re delighted to offer staycations with a minimum booking of just four days. 

Our diary still has bookings for guests who may not be able to visit so it’s best to call to check availability.

And if you’re looking for a shorter stay during the quieter months, give us a call, we’ll be happy to help if we can!
