Description

Laxey is a lovely centre for the country walks, vintage transport, and a visit to the Lady Isabella – probably the largest working water wheel in the world.

Laxey promenade is a few minutes level walk, where there is a cafe serving home-made cakes and ice cream and a children’s playground. Although pebbles at high water, a sandy beach and rock pools are uncovered when the tide goes out.

Historic Laxey is situated in a valley between Snaefell Mountain and the sea. The name Laxey comes from the Norse Lac-saa meaning salmon river. Old Laxey was once a thriving port and fishing village but now the harbour is full of leisure craft. About 3/4 mile inland lies the main part of the village. It was a development of the mining industry in Victorian times and the Manx Electric Railway line helped bring prosperity through early tourism.

There are a number of pubs in the village – some serving food. A church, woollen mills, cafes, a chemist, newsagent/post office, convenience store, fish shop selling locally caught fish and manx meat and a petrol station are all situated in the upper part of the village. From here you can also take the 100+ year old tramway to Ramsey, Douglas or to Snaefell summit. Laxey Glen Gardens, the Great Laxey Wheel and the Mines Railway are all nearby.

Within a few minutes walk of the chalets there is an Italian restaurant, a brew pub and harbour-side tea rooms.
