Staycation

We had an amazing time. The only thing to make it better would have been if the outside area was self contained from the farmhouse courtyard, so our dog could have been outside and we could have had the doors open in the heat. The views were beautiful and the peace was lovely, very relaxing.

Short stay

Lovely stay in a fab location A welcome pack was a really nice touch Everything you needed for a short stay Grip rails on the bath would be a good idea to prevent falls for elderly Information pack on places to eat was out of date for some of the establishments and new ones not added But overall a very enjoyable stay

Cottage with a view

Fantastic views from this lovely property, set in a lovely quiet peaceful area, the adjoining meadow was lovely to wander around with the dogs. Cottage was comfortable, clean and the kitchen had all the mod cons needed. Had an issue with the electric and heating when we arrived, rang the owner and she got everything sorted within an hour, No secure area outside for the dogs to be left off the lead which was a shame but not a massive issue. Less than 5 minutes drive to the Ayres Nature Reserve which is gorgeous and a great spot for walking with the dogs - would definitely go back

Hugely enjoyable stay

We had 4 wonderful days at the Milking Parlour. The living area was great with lovely comfortable sofas. The outside area was sheltered with fantastic views. We have never had such a well equipped kitchen in a holiday home. The welcome pack was very much appreciated. We had a slight issue with the double room being too warm despite turning the heating off for the whole of the stay and turning the hot water off during the day. This was possibly just a fault with the system and we managed around it by moving to the other bedroom. We will contact Island Escapes separately to ask them to check if there’s an issue. It didn’t spoil our stay in any way and we will be booking to go back at some point in the future. Thank you to the owners and to Island Escapes.

Great accommodation

A great location if you are looking for some rest and recuperation. The accommodation is situated by a farm and Andreas village is just a short drive away, it was very clean, well laid out and well equipped. We did find the heating very warm and had to turn it down. there is a great outside space which would be ideal for the warmer month. Highly recommended, definitely will return in the new year.

Very good for a short break

The location was good, easy to find with good parking, a pleasant view, and generally quite but there were several hours of noise from cattle in the nearby farm shed for our second night and the following day (the farmer did apologise). The building had plenty of space, was well equipped and modern although the small TV panel is now showing it's age. The kitchen was fine and it was handy having a good washing machine. We were happy, overall, with our 'staycation' in the Milking Parlour.

Perfect home from home with stunning setting

This was the perfect staycation for 2 adults and two dogs from Port Erin. The property is in a great location and is finished to a high standard. The welcome basket was really appreciated and we felt instantly at home. Looking out from the property over the Irish Sea to Scotland was breathtaking and the area has fantastic walking sites and nature trails as well as the beaches which go on forever. We cycled, fished, walked and generally relaxed for our short staycation. For a southerner from the Isle of Man, we found new parts of the Island to appreciate ‘down the North’ and will definitely be back. All in all a first-rate experience which felt like a proper holiday.

My staycation at the Milking parlour

Absolutely loved the milking parlour the views are amazing. So relaxing. You can unwind listening to all the wildlife, just stunning. I booked both properties on the farm For my family So we had the whole place to ourselves. There is a games room in the barn adjoining which is great for all ages. we had a dog with us, she had the time of her life roaming from The cottage to The milking parlour And around the private secure grounds. The only faults I had was With cleaning it needs a good clean under couches in The living room And behind The bedrooms furniture, also the kitchen equipment ,oven trays and utensils were unusable until I washed everything. But apart from them little bits we all enjoyed staying on the farm. Just brilliant.

A great place to stay and appreciate the lovely north of the island.

The Milking Parlor provides a comfortable and varied accommodation. The barn was an added space brilliant for the family. BBQs, cycling, beach walks and a chance to explore, visiting friends and relaxing. Perfect.
