Crogga, Old Castletown Road, Santon



Estimated to have been built in the mid-19th century by the Quayle Family, and previously home to prolific romantic novelist, Charlotte Lamb, Crogga is one of the Isle of Man’s finest and most historic private estate homes.

Occupying a commanding and elevated position on the east coast of the Island, Crogga is approached via a sweeping driveway and sits in approximately 16 acres of landscaped grounds, that include formal lawned gardens, a boating lake, and beautiful walks alongside Crogga river as it meanders its way down through the Glen to the sea.

The Isle of Man Steam Railway, constructed in 1874 and connecting Douglas with the south of the Island, passes through the grounds of the Estate, historically, former custodians of Crogga had their own stop so they could commute to the Island’s Parliament and into Douglas.

Currently enjoyed by the owner and enthusiasts, the Crogga Valley Miniature Railway, a 0.41km single gauge steam railway track was built in the grounds of the property, together with its own station and maintenance sheds.

The Scottish ‘Baronial’ style entrance to Crogga welcomes you into one of the most handsome but understated homes you’re ever likely to find on the Isle of Man. The original covings, doors and architraves, the beautiful wooden staircase and Barovian style arched vaulted ceiling in the hallway are quite spectacular.
