Holiday cottages in the Isle of Man

about us

Manx Wildlife Trust

We are pleased to be a Corporate Sponsor of Manx Wildlife Trust, the leading nature conservation charity in the Isle of Man, caring for land, sea and fresh water environments.

As a socially responsible company with strong ethical beliefs, Island Escapes have chosen to partner with the Manx Wildlife Trust as our selected charity for since 2018. When you book a holiday cottage, we ask for a small donation to the trust to support their work.

Over the last few years we have raised £20,000 to date, and the funds raised by Island Escapes have been used by Manx Wildlife Trust to support the management of nature reserves, improve educational signage for visitors and maintain access and pathways. The synergy is obvious, as more and more people are choosing to take staycations and enjoy the amazing wildlife and beautiful natural environment that the Isle of Man has to offer. Both Island Escapes and Manx Wildlife Trust believe there is a strong future for ecotourism and sustainable tourism in the Isle of Man.
