Dandy Rigg Cottage is a traditional Manx cottage, known as a 'tholtan' which has been modernised to a comfortable three-star holiday cottage, located in the quiet countryside of the south of the Isle of Man. Located on the south facing hillside above Colby village the cottage setting is ideal for a peaceful retreat. From the garden enjoy panoramic views across and out to sea. On a clear day you can even make out the hills of the Welsh coastline from the grounds of the cottage.
