Total endorsement of all the other comments on this site. I recommend KBF to anyone looking for a place to stay on The Isle of Man. Wonderful accommodation on a wonderful island. All the comfort one can ask for together with the interest of staying on a working farm. An animal lovers paradise.

A very warm welcome, home from home hospitality, travel advice freely given, superb breakfasts, a great rural but convenient location,and just the right level of friendliness and attention. Unbeatable in my opinion.

Room Tip: Room number 1 great, spectacular views of the countryside.

We stayed four nights and had an excellent time! The people at the farm are very warm and more than happy to help you out with anything you might need.
I had a sore throat and asked for some cinnamon and honey, and it was provided to me ASAP!

The farm is located in the centre of the island, meaning that you can get to any of the cities on the island with thrity minutes.

There's a fantastic hill right behind that you can climb for lovely views of the farm itself and the sea. Great for an impromptu picnic! Great for an after breakfast walk, and you'll need one beause the breakfast is lovely and you'll eat too much.

The bathrooms are clean and - a rarity these days - roomy!

The bunkhouse is a new addition to what the farm has to offer & I can't recommend it enough. Finding hostel-style, affordable accommodation on the island isn't easy so this place is a gem. Fiona offers a warm welcome, the bunkhouse is super cosy & it has everything you could possibly need. It's surrounded by beautiful countryside with Peel & Niarbyl a short cycle away. I only wish I'd stated for longer!

We often stay at farm bed and breakfasts when we travel, but rarely find such a perfect match of "bed and breakfast" hospitality and a true farm setting. Comfortable rooms, good advice about places to eat and things to see, well-marked footpaths for working up appeties (or working off full English breakfasts, and a central location a relatively short drive from the ferry port make this the ideal place to base yourself for a stay on the Isle of Man.

We stayed at Knockaloe Beg Farm on a flying visit to the Isle of Man and what a find this place is. Beautiful location, great accomodation & a fabulous breakfast made all the more enjoyable by such a lovely warm and friendly welcome from Fiona. The farm and its hospitality are a credit to the Anderson family. Highly recommended as a wonderful place to base your stay on the island.

Knockaloe Beg Farm is a working farm B&B about one mile outside Peel 500 yards off the main road down a windy potholed single track lane. We stayed there over Halloween for 5 nights (or Hop tu naa as it is celebrted on the Isle of Man). There are 3 guest rooms as well as a rental cottage. There is a communal guest lounge where breakfast is served and you sit at a large round dining table with the other guests. There is a nice wood burning stove to heat the room and plenty of comfy seating. The house and all the rooms and bathrooms are furnished to a high standard and the beds are exceptionally comfy. The breakfasts were fantastic with local produce and a wide variety to choose from.

There are chickens running about and manx cats and it certainly must be a delight for children but one should bear in mind it is a working farm and the day starts and ends early. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this to all our friends.

Room Tip: there is one room at the back which although also lovely is opposite the barn so you might be woken...

I stayed for four nights in may with my elderly mother. The room was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean, with pleasant views over farmland towards the coast. The beds were extremely comfortable, and my mother awoke quite amazed to discover that she'd had a sound night's sleep for the first time in ages. The breakfasts were quite superb, with an extensive choice of foods served in the very pleasant guest dining/sitting room. We were made to feel most welcome, and even allowed to help with moving some sheep on our first morning, which was the highlight of our trip - though the island has many interesting attractions and beautiful places to visit which we also enjoyed. My only problem was resisting the urge to kidnap Meggy - the delightful collie pup!

Knockaloe Beg Farm was rebuilt in 2007 as a modern, energy efficient building with a traditional feel. It has 5 en-suite double or twin bedrooms and a lovely private guest lounge with wood burning stove. It is part of our working farm where we milk 200 cows and breed from 800 ewes so lambing time is very busy and exciting! Our bedrooms all have really comfy, super king sized, zip and link beds with goose down duvets and large showers or baths. Breakfasts have gained a 'Breakfast Award' for being high quality as well as local, homemade, fairtrade or organic. We pride ourselves on our environmental awareness.The house is up a private farm lane so is very quiet with stunning views across open countryside and only a 20 minute walk to the sea. ... more   less
