Holiday Rental House
We know you will be delighted when you arrive at Close Taggart. These two gold award cottages, Thie Rhennie ('House of Ferns') and Thie Lough ('House of the Lake') can be found well off the beaten track, deep in the countryside, about two miles from the nearest small supermarket, bus routes and village, and six from the nearest town (Ramsey). Thie Rhennie has one bedroom and provides the perfect setting for a special break for two. The owners live on site and will be on hand to greet you and provide any assistance you require, you will have total freedom to enjoy the extensive grounds of Close Taggart which includes a tree house and viewing platform high up in the trees, where you can sit and enjoy a complementary glass of wine.

In addition, a further viewing platform provides fabulous views of the setting sun to the west. There is also a summerhouse for guests to use. The cottages are a great base for nature lovers. The Curraghs where the cottages are located, is an area of wetland and a rich haven of biodiversity with rare flora and fauna. Wild wallabies, normally found in warmer climes, are also thriving here. The animals, native to Australia and Tasmania, have been flourishing ever since a pair escaped in the 1970s from the Curraghs wildlife park, a short distance from the cottages. Researchers believe now there are more than a 100 living in the wild. It is possible to see wallabies living in the wild on one of the short walks from the cottages. We are very willing to assist with mobility issues, but unfortunately we are unable to accommodate full time wheel chair users due to the layout of the cottage. You can park close to the entrance, with a gravel/grassed area and cobblestones leading to two small entrance steps. Inside the cottage the kitchen and lounge are on the ground floor with normal width stairs leading to the bedroom and bathroom on the first floor. Kitchen/Dining area: Electric oven, gas hob, fridge, microwave, dining table & chairs Lounge: Electric fire, comfortable three piece suite, dresser, TV & DVD player Bedroom 1: Double bed, dressing table, wardrobe, bedside tables Bathroom: Bath with handheld shower, WC and wash hand basin.
