Holiday cottages in the Isle of Man

Isle of Man Staycations

Staycation dining experiences

This summer we are excited to introduce a new dining experience exclusive to selected Island Escapes properties

Chris and Vanessa Callow will be familiar to many of the Island’s winter sports enthusiasts having operated two deluxe catered chalets in the French Alps for seven years before returning to the Island in 2014.

In preparation for the chalet venture Chris trained at the prestigious Edinburgh School of Food and Wine and Vanessa trained at the highly regarded Natives Chalet School.


Since returning to the Island Chris has enjoyed adding quality Manx produce to his repertoire and the ManxSki menu will offer an eclectic mix of alpine, bistro and local specialities.

All meals will be prepared off-site then finished at the property and served to your party, with washing-up dealt with afterwards.
