About this Holiday Cottage

An attractive pet-friendly period property, The Old Post House was once the Post Office for Onchan village.  Built in approximately 1889, it is a character property which enjoys a rich history and has been tastefully modernised to offer comfortable living accommodation, ideal for a self catering holiday. Enjoying a very central village location and not far from the vibrant town of Douglas and all its attractions, you are well placed for an enjoyable holiday on the Isle on Man.  Due to the cottage's location in central Onchan, and a good, handy bus service, a car isn't a necessity.

Extensive recent refurbishment has been undertaken including new flooring in the inner hall area, the stairs landing and also in the lounge and diner.  

Living Space

The Old Post Office provides comfortable self catering accommodation for up to 3 people.

The kitchen has a built in fridge-freezer and gas hob, electric oven and a microwave.

The lounge provides comfortable accommodation and is equipped with a TV and a radio cassette player.

The accommodation also has a conservatory, the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

There are 2 bedrooms which share a fully equipped bathroom, bath and separate shower.  The spacious bathroom has a separate walk-in shower cubicle and larger than average bath.

One bedroom is fitted with a double bed and has a TV and DVD Player.  This bedroom overlooks the secluded rear garden.

The other bedroom has 1 single bed and 2 windows overlooking the front of the house.
