Draped in lacy Victorian ironwork, this fairytale mansion set in riverside gardens just outside New Norfolk could be a giant’s dolls house. Opening onto its ornate upstairs verandahs there are six elegant rooms with high ceilings, decorative fireplaces, drapes and antique furnishings. Cuter still, the Granary offers self-contained private accommodation in a two-storey stone cottage, where you can enjoy breakfast alone or join the other guests in Tynwald’s original flagstone-paved kitchen. There is a tennis court, an outdoor heated swimming pool, a superb restaurant and complimentary use of mountain bikes, while the valley’s magnificent wilderness and historic attractions are all just a short drive away.
