Luxury Isle of Man Staycation
In beautiful Peel
Imagine waking up to the warm hospitality of Albany House B&B in Peel where comfort, cleanliness and privacy are waiting to envelop you. Every sunrise is matched with a glorious sunset and few of us can resist the nightly need to slip between clean sheets in a comfy bed for a good night’s sleep. Rested and rejuvenated, the prospect of a fine, filling and full breakfast can rarely be denied.
With there being so much to do in and around Peel we’d highly recommend booking at least a couple of nights.
What to do …….on the west coast.
When was the last time you walked up Peel Hill? The views are stunning it’s a lovely walk up to the Corrin’s folly and on your way back pop into The Creek or The Peveril and enjoy a well earned drink.
Nikki has some great walking routes which she can share with you for the west coast. Enjoy walks along the old railway track, the Raad ny follian coastal walks, or the beautiful waterfalls at Glen Helen, Glen Maye & Spooty Vane. We will lend you OS Maps, route plans, there are a couple of walking poles too. Walking boots are an asset but not usually essential in the summer. Pack lunches and picnic hampers available too!

They have many books pertaining to the Isle that we were able to look at which were very helpful.
The preparation for our family anniversary celebration was superb, from Nikki's recommendations, to making reservations for dinner, to trying to locate family connections- they are an amazing team.
It had been 48 years since my friend and I had visited the Island and Nikki was so helpful in helping us find our original accommodation in Douglas all those years ago, she used Manx Nostalgia and was able to trace the Guest house we stayed at, that just made our return trip complete
