Brilliant cup of the best Capichino I've ever had and the friendliness and service was excellent. The cafe is kept very clean and the meals are very reasonably priced, and excellent in quality. Hope the staff that run it have a good season and get lots people this year.Well worth visit.

This museum is also pretty, but I would advise everyone to head a bit more south to Calf of Man. Its beautiful there!! You can see a lot of seals hanging around the cost. I just sat there and relaxed. The nature is amazing.

We visited here on Thursday 10th October.

We arrived around 11am and had morning tea - what a lovely cafe this is.

The proprietor was very very friendly and the food, which I understand is cooked by his wife, was wonderful.

I had the cherry scone with jam and the best cream I've ever had - thick and silky smooth. Hamish had the apple pie and cream.

We shared a little tub of local Manx ice cream - delicious.

We had a quick walk around the thatched cottages, as we were running short on time.

Highly recommended for a visit, and take the time for a bite to eat at the tea rooms.

I visited this site some 15 years ago and was impressed by the place. My most recent visit was even better. The site has been added to the buildings and stories associated with them are facinating. Some buildings just contain exhibits of how life used to be but others have people in costume who tell the story whist others have interactive screens which also tell a story. Overall one of the best visits on the Island.. You need a good two hours to do it justice but its well worthwhile.
