After arranging a surprise 40th Birthday treat for my wife and two children , I can only have praise and thanks for the warm and friendly welcome from Fiona which we received on arriving at Knockaloe Beg Farm, a nice cup of tea with some home made Flapjack is good start for us. We were booked in for B n B room five in the loft with sea view, and open fields, a viewing window for the children at low level , the room catered for our needs ,with a cot for the our 15 week old and a single bed for our two year old with a super king size bed for us adults ,there was still room for walking round the bedroom with plenty of storage for bags , the bathroom had plenty of space , a large double shower, toilet and wash basin and a basket full of things you might not of packed but need, tea and coffee or hot chocolate was available and a t.v if needed,our option was a smaller room with a bath but glad we chose the shower as it was better for us with our two year old,we also had the use of a large lounge with comfy seating and a play space for her to play. Fiona was a great host and nothing seamed a task even having a go at baby sitting while we ate tea. The working farm was busy with Lambing season and we could watch on hand the Lambs being born with even an early morning session of helping to bottle feed the lambs which our two year old enjoyed, the farm holds many animals from pigs to chickens to goats and donkeys, cows and plenty of sheep our dough tear also help to feed the other animals.
With a short walk to Peel either by road or via the hill which you can walk with ease can be made in less than 30 minuets which leads you to the sea front harbour I can recommend any age group would be happy staying at the farm as you can chose from a varying range of accommodation , all would be well finished and clean n tidy. The farm also uses many Ecological energy saving products and strives to be more self sufficient in providing its own ground source heating for hot water and heating.all round great stay, thanks Fiona , John and family.
See you on Country File Soon.....
- 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
