The rooms are equipped with a couple of chairs, tables and drawers, TV, huge wardrobe, dressing table. The bathrooms are spacious too, with a bath tub attached to the mirrored walls, decorated with conch and shells and a shower room.
The furniture and curtain drapes gave an elegant touch in the living room, and each of the chandeliers, lamps, wall hangings were very attractive and antique.
The kitchen itself is very huge, and the breakfast area is along the open garden overlooking the river. We got served a lovely tea on the afternoon along with fresh bake and some chocolates in a vintage cups and silverware.
Right next to the house is River Sulby, longest flowing river in the island. And as the tide is high, the water level grows, and ducks and swans come around to take a wee break in their garden. And as the tide goes low, they just follow the stream and go back. It was beautiful to watch them over from our room.
We sneaked in the garden area on the night of our stay to see the dark sky and full moon and it was absolutely gorgeous. We couldn’t capture the moon so well, but took a quick capture of Snaefell mountains and cloudy sky with some stars.

Edward and Adrian are such sweet hosts, they took complete care of our needs, showed us around their house and cooked us great veggie breakfasts. They have wealth of information about local eat outs and places to see, and made great suggestions for our dinner. They even showed us the whole house and “it looked beautiful” would be an understatement. See for yourself.
We had absolutely fantastic time staying in The River House in Isle of Man, and am I allowed to say, that a little piece of my heart didn’t want to leave. Such a beautiful place it was, we felt home. Are you planning your visit to Isle of Man? You just know the best place you can stay in!
