Kionslieu Farm Cottages
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 June 2008

We have stayed at Peacock's Rest cottage, Kionslieu, every year for the past 13 years, and have never yet failed to have a memorable holiday, in spite of occasional shortcomings of the weather.
The cottage, suitable for 2 people, is clean, modern and comfortably furnished, with central heating and all the facilities needed for a holiday stay in this most beautiful of islands. The block of five cottages, from the small to the very large, were built about 15 years ago from the stone of old farm buildings, and are set in a small farmyard with communal washing machines and a payphone contained in separate rooms. There are many animals for the children to pet - rabbits, goat, sheep and Poppy the dog, and in addition, a children's play area with swings, slide etc. and a tree house will keep the youngsters fully occupied. There is even a barbeque available for those who prefer to eat al fresco.
The cottages all come with radio, tv, video and dvd players, and there is ample parking space close to each cottage. The proprietors, Fiona and Tony Barker are two of the most charming and helpful people you could wish to meet, and I have no hesitation in putting Kionslieu right at the top of our self-catering accommodation list. Indeed, we would not dream of staying anywhere else.

Stayed: May 2008

We have been staying at Kionslieu Farm Cottages every year for 10 years. I think that says it all. Friendly hosts, beautifully maintained accommodation in a quiet area. This is a beautiful island - a treat to drive along its quiet country roads.

We were looking for suitable accommodation on the Isle of Man as we had a wedding to go to. We needed a separate room for our 15mth old son and found hotels on the island either very expensive when booking an adjoining room of that they did not have one. I found the Kionslieu Cottage website and booked direct with Fiona Barker. She was always very prompt in her correspondence and booking was extremely simple.
We stayed at the Blackberry Cottage for 4 nights - the cottage was spacious,clean and extremely well equipped. The farm location was serene and the hosts were very helpful when we needed them.
We have travelled for numerous years and stayed in a variety of hotels/self catering accommodation (I also worked in the travel industry for over 8 years), but there was nothing at all that we could find negative about this accommodation.
Superb!! We would highly recommend this to anyone who was seeking a peaceful holiday - only about a 20min drive from the port/Douglas!!

We chose Kionslieu Farm Cottages from the Everymann brochure as we wanted to stay in the country and they had a cottage that was suitable for 2 people. They also had a 4 star rating and a good website with photos and info about the area (www.iomfarmholidays.com). Kionslieu is situated in Foxdale near the middle of the island and is not difficult to get to by car, but I wouldn’t recommend it to people without their own transport. When we arrived we were really pleased that Peacock’s Rest lived up to and even exceeded our expectations. The cottage has an open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen with all the amenities that you might need. Upstairs we had a huge bedroom under the eaves and a good-sized bathroom. There are 4 other cottages on the farmyard but it was always quiet and peaceful. There are sheep and horses on the farm but thankfully no cockerels to wake you up at the crack of dawn! The owners were friendly and helpful but in a non-intrusive way – the information pack that they left for us was really useful, especially for restaurant recommendations. All in all, we really liked Kionslieu and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing, self-catering break.
