You will find Summer Rise in a private residential close, consisting of seven bungalows, all built in the 1930s. It's located near the bottom of Blackberry Lane, and the top of Summerhill in Onchan.

The owners live in the bungalow next door, so we're on hand if you would like any local knowledge.

There's a sheltered garden around the house for relaxing in. Garden birds are regular visitors, and you might spot the odd heron, sparrowhawk, peregrine falcon or pheasant too!

Onchan Park, Summerhill Glen and Douglas Beach are just a few minutes on foot. Places to eat, drink & shop are also in easy reach.

Groudle Glen and Groudle Glen Railway are just a mile or two along the coast. Take in the views on the coastal footpaths, or hop on The Manx Electric Railway. Look out for Dolphins, or Basking Sharks in the summer. The Clypse Resevoir is about a mile away, and is a popular spot for walking, fishing & birding This is Mollie Carrooin's Cottage near St Peters Church in Onchan
Captain Bligh from the 'Mutiny on the Bounty' married at Peter's Church. There's some beautiful old Celtic crosses in the church. Footpaths from the close lead to some excellent vantage points on the Isle of Man TT Course - Governor's Bridge, The Nook and Signpost Corner. The Isle of Man has some wonderful Heritage transport. You can walk or hop on a bus or horse tram to the IOM Steam Railway Station.
Horses working on the trams are kept in fields near the house. You can pick up a Horse Tram or Electric Tram just down the hilll, and enjoy a pint and some tasty food in the Terminus Tavern. Summerhill Glen is close by for woodland walks all year round. It's illuminated at certain times of the year. Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter - it's a lovely location, whatever the weather!
