Once again, it gives us pleasure to offer our hugely popular Isle of Man holiday. The
Isle of Man is an ancient Viking Kingdom which has never been part of the U.K and
who’s well known three legged emblem originates from a symbol used on 10th
century coins. Reminders of the Island’s turbulent past abound, Iron Age hill forts, the
ruins of Rushden Abbey and the castle at Peel. The Island’s coastline ranges from quiet
secluded coves to busy harbours and clean sandy beaches. Our chosen resort is
Douglas with a Victorian seafront and long promenades.
Early booking recommended.
The Chesterhouse is ideally located on the seafront of Douglas, offering a full range of modern facilities and accessories. The hotel is also close to the town centre - which offers extensive shopping, ensuite bedrooms, tea and coffee making facilities and is filled with original architecture and character, making the ideal location for our Isle of Man stay. There is a lift that serves all floors.
