The Stable

Access Statement for The Stable at Glendown Farm

We aim to make The Stable’s accommodation as comfortable as possible. Please find outlined below information to ensure that the cottage is suitable for your needs ensuring you have an enjoyable vacation.

Prior to arrival

Enquiries and bookings can be made by telephone or email. Directions to The Stable can be found on our website or can be posted on request. Please ask if you require bigger font for your postal correspondence.

The Stable is located in the South of the Island, 0.4miles (0.64km) from Port St Mary and 0.9miles (1.45km) from Port Erin, on a quiet country road that links the two villages.

Converted from an old stable the accommodation is based over two levels. On the ground floor there is the main entrance hall, cloakroom, 2 double/twin bedrooms, main bathroom, separate toilet and boiler room. The lounge, with views over Port Erin, kitchen/dining room and the third double/twin bedroom are located on the first floor. As the cottage is built on a slight gradient there are steps accessing the bedrooms, kitchen/dining area and lounge and whilst this makes it rather quirky regrettably it is not suitable for full time wheel chair users.
