Beautiful relaxing cottage in the Manx countrysideThe Bryer was great and had all we needed to relax. The beds were very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay there. Hopefully we will return. The Anderson family and Island Escape were very helpful.

Positive experienceLocation worked for us, gave us a base to explore the island. As a self catering facility, we also cooked evening meals and used all the amenities. Although its a compact space, its more than adequate for the time spent there.

Pleasant cottage in lovely locationCottage was comfortable and in a very pleasant location, ideal for exploring the island. Ive given 3 stars for cleanliness, mainly because the dishwasher clearly hadnt been cleaned properly for a very long time. It took me a while to discover that the spray arms were totally blocked, which is why all items were coming out dirty. Wi-Fi was not reliable, and there was no smart TV. A good selection of games was provided which we enjoyed playing instead. More pegs and glasses are needed. Emails to island escapes during my stay regarding our departure were not responded to. We were also not told in advance that our stay fell during lambing live, which meant hundreds of people passed by our cottage every day. Otherwise, a very pleasant stay.

Cosy cottage well located for exploring the Isle of ManReally enjoyed my week in this warm and comfortable cottage. Well located for exploring the island and a couple of good decent-sized walks available from the door (and a shorter one very conveniently into Peel).

Fantastic week.What a fantastic week we had, The Byre did exactly what it said it would do, lovely welcome warm and cozy, perfect for my elderly dad as all on the level and a seat in the wet room so perfect for him, nice warm log burner made it feel like a home than a holiday let, would not hesitate to book again and definitely recommend it to family and friends, thank you island escapes. Peanut our little dog absolutely loved it, especially the donkey.

Peace and TranquilityThe Byre is a peaceful and tranquil base for anyone wanting to explore the Isle of Man. The Byre itself is very well equipped and maintained and although it is quiet it is only a 10 minute drive to Peel. You can also walk to Peel in about 30 minutes surrounded by stunning scenery. Highly recommended!

The Byre @ Knockaloe Beg FarmOur stay was fine, it was our first time but just a few disappointing points, No welcome pack of wine, cheese, milk as described before our arrival, No outside light above the entry door, Basin in wet room bathroom partially blocked, No mirror light in en suite bathroom, Cutlery and glasses either mismatched or missing

A week at the ByreA very well equipped property and perfect for my 90 yr old Mum with the accessible bathroom. Suitable for 4 people to sleep but with family on the Island it was very comfortable when 6 others came round to visit for the afternoon. It would benefit from having some mats at the entrance as it rained when we arrived and the tiled floor got very muddy and slippery. Also some of the cleaning was not as thorough as it could have been. Overall though it was a wonderful place to stay.

Spacious and very comfortableA fantastic property on a working farm, The Byre is a converted barn and all the rooms benefit from the high ceilings. It is well laid out and very spacious. There was everything we needed for our first visit to the Isle of Man and we are definitely going to come back with friends!

Boarding at The ByreFiona & John are excellent hosts on this busy working farm. The Byre is a comfortable and cosy property with fantastic views in a quiet location. Ideal for restful breaks and active holidays alike with great walks on the doorstep. Highly recommend a visit in any of the Knockaloe Beg accommodations.

Top marks for The Byre!Stunning location and great accommodation. John and Fiona were perfect hosts. We enjoyed feeding the animals with Brandon who was very informative. The Byre was very comfortable and had a lovely little garden. We also made use of the sauna and bbq hut and had a very relaxing afternoon. We would highly recommend and will definitely be back.
