Isle of Man Staycations

Discover Your Island

It's time to discover your new favourite Island Escape, right here on the Isle of Man.

The Coronavirus outbreak has undoubtedly changed how we live day to day. For many of us Isle of Man residents, it's afforded us a fresh perspective. We're appreciating the little things more, complemented by all that our Island has to offer.

Endless opportunity for discovery and exploration has lead us to try new things but also revisit old favourites. Quite simply, this time has allowed us to reconnect with our often overlooked Island and its beauty.

We want to celebrate our Island by offering 10% off all Staycations until 31st October 2020. All you have to do is quote STAYCATION at the checkout.

Due to ongoing travel restrictions, at Island Escapes we are unable to welcome our visitors from off the island, which provides an unusual situation where many of our fantastic properties are unoccupied over the coming months. 


Head south "over the bridge" and you'll find Port Erin and Port St Mary for a seaside island escape! Enjoy a paddle boarding adventure, explore the stunning section of the Raad Ny Foillan coastal footpath or simply unwind amongst spectacular scenery. 

Maybe the wild expanse of the north is more your thing. Take to the bike and meander through the country lanes, wander in the Ayres or see if you can spot a Wallaby? 

Take the whole family too... many of our our properties are pet friendly!

So, what are you waiting for. It's time to find your perfect escape and Discover YOUR Island. 

And remember don't forget to share your staycation story with us using the hashtag #IOMstaycation !

Our Survey Says…

'Only' 32% of Isle of Man residents would consider an Island Staycation, and we think that's brilliant! Here's a glass half-full spin on things from our perspective.

Favourite walks of the north west of the Isle of Man

The north west of the island is a great place to explore on foot – with uncrowded beaches, hills, hidden glens, keeills, and tholtans. Local guide, Catriona Livingstone shares with us a selection of her favourite walks around Kirk Michael and Ballaugh.

Learn to eat again on a Foraging Tour of Port Erin

Due to its biodiverse landscape the Isle of Man has been given UNESCO biosphere status. This, therefore, is “foraging heaven” according to chefs that visit the Isle.

Enjoy a paddleboarding adventure on the Isle of Man

The dramatic coastline of the Isle of Man lends itself well for watersports, and Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) as it gets called is growing in popularity on the island as more and more people discover the sport. Michelle from Saltworks SUP tells us some more about this new paddlesport.
