My first trip to the Isle of Man and we chose this cottage as it ticked all the right boxes, near to the coast, remote, garden, woodburner etc. It is very well-equipped and comfortable and range cooker gave us ample cooking capacity. As a working farm there are plenty of animals to see and feed if you wish. Fiona keeps horses and the farm dogs and cats are very friendly (Manx cats with no tails!). A lovely walk up the hill brings great views of the Irish Sea with fabulous sunsets and Peel is just a lovely 40 minutes walk. Unlimited wood to burn with no extra cost is a bonus and if it rains a lot as it did during our week, the large ceiling mounted clothes airer will soon get your wet gear dried! It's a great base for exploring the island, walking, canoeing, cycling and I totally recommend it to anyone who enjoys a rural experience! Peel ain't the night life capital of the world but with a bottle or two of wine and the woodburner, no need to get out in the evening! Good TV for those who want it, plus a good selection of books and board games.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
