Cottage at Port Erin

It was lovely staying at this cottage. The views were lovely. It was a brilliant idea to have the bedrooms downstairs. Our dogs loved watching out of the window at the many cats and we were thrilled to see several Manx cats. I think the only hiccup we had was reversing into the yard but we got the hang of it after a couple of days. The Island itself is well worth a visit, so beautiful and the Fushia Hedges were a joy to see.

The Milking Parlour

Great accommodation with a fantastic view over Port Erin. Great access to the cliff walks . Kitchen very well equipped and lovely bedrooms with comfy beds. The only disappointment was the ‘ensuite’ . The under stairs toilet and tiny sink did not meet this criteria. A second shower would have been useful for 4 adults, but we managed! Perhaps this should be more apparent in the website information .

Brilliant for wedding prep and night

I stayed at the milking parlour with my bridal party the night before my wedding and then the 2 following nights. It was perfect for getting ready and I’m sure the high beam and beautiful views will look wonderful on the pictures. We were very comfortable and the house was very clean, with a bright and airy feel. Plenty of parking too, the wedding cars were able to pull into the forecourt

A great stay at The Milking Parlour

We had a great stay at The Milking Parlour. The accommodation is modern, spotlessly clean, well equipped and very comfortable. We were welcome upon arrival with a lovely card, chocolates and essential food and had everything that we needed for our stay. The location is superb and the owners went out of their way to make our stay perfect. All in all, a very memorable and enjoyable break. We have no hesitation in recommending The Milking Parlour!

You get what you pay for,-- brilliant views, nice clean friendly place

Only negative is minute bathroom & micro ensuite Who desiged it? Seems to be an afterthought which is bizarre as plenty of room to do a proper job with stud walls. Nice quiet location with excellent views. Ian & Sandra very helpful.

The Milking Parlour in Port Erin.

We had a very relaxing week in the above Staycation and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. It is in a quiet location in Port Erin with wonderful views. The accommodation had everything we needed.The owners were nearby and were very pleasant and helpful. The views from the lounge( upstairs) were splendid. It overlooked fields and a Golf course. I believe one needs a car to visit all the local Beauty spots,sites and restaurants. The Isle of Man was a most lovely Island and the people were so friendly and polite. Reminiscent of the U.K. in the sixties. We had lots to do. The Island has so much history and being a member of The National Trust allowed free entrance into many sites. Thoroughly recommend this Island and this Staycation.

Beautiful place to stay. Wonderful views and everything you need for your stay here. I would suggest perhaps a couple of plugs that have USB ports.

Beautiful South!

Wonderful trip to the Milking Parlour - the sun shone throughout. Stunning views, lots of walking, bike riding, running & sea swimming! A perfect staycation. A minus - dog biscuits under the single beds (not from our dogs) so maybe bit more hoovering?

Fabulous Staycation

We can highly recommend The Milking Parlour -a fabulous base to explore the beautiful south! Even though I grew up in the area it was great to discover new walks and activities and sample the great food and drink on offer. Can’t wait to go back!

Very comfortable stay at The Milking Parlour

We have spent 2 weeks in isolation at The Milking Parlour. We’ve enjoyed our stay. The cottage is lovely and the views amazing. I have not given the condition 5 because there are a couple of light bulbs out, the bottom of the shower tray kept coming apart & there are cobwebs in the lounge. This has not affected our stay. The neighbours have been friendly, 1 of them brought us a table and chairs to sit outside on.

Nice Place to Stay

Stayed for 10 days whilst major plumbing was undertaken at our house. This is a nice facility, we just found it a little strange that we never did see the proprietor or a representitive; our only contact was our phone call about leaving arrangements. We assumed that this was because they thought we were staying for Covid-19 reasons. Having said that we would not hesitate in recommending this location as a great place to stay.

Brilliant stay at the Milking Parlour

Had a brilliant stay at the Milking Parlour, the location was great and the views were to die for. Explored the south with a lot of walking, the bed was so comfortable that it was the best night’s sleep for quite some time! Will definitely come back and recommend.

pull the udder one

This place is absolute quality all round the whole place is very modern and finished to a very high standard.There are beautiful views from the living area and outside seating area of Port Erin Bay, the 2 bedrooms are downstairs 1 double with toilet 1 twin and a family shower room with also a toilet located between the 2 bedrooms all modern and brand spanking new. Everything you need is supplied by mine hosts Ian and Sandra Cooil who are always available if need as they only live 100 meters away and when i say everything i do mean everything it is like a home from home,you name it its there. So what are you waiting for bring yourself bring some food and bring some wine . you will need some form of transport for convenience, as its not on a direct bus route but Port Erin is only 10 mins walk away and is very well serviced by buses every 20 mins which will connect you to all parts of the island. Would i stay again FOR SURE its a no brainer. so a BIG thank you to Ian And Sandra it was perfect for our staycation

Authentic Farm Stay without the Moos!

In its days, cows had a marvellous view over Port Erin, but this newly converted milking parlour is a stunning place now for us human beings to spend a week whilst exploring the Isle of Man! Owners, Ian & Sandra Cooil, have recently retired from a lifetime of dairy farming, and have converted their "girls" milking parlour into a great place for a staycation, or as in our case, a week out from another COVID-free island, Guernsey. The milk & cream is still bottled next door and getting woken by the milkround lads as they pick up their deliveries is no bad thing, as there is lots to do, see and trails to walk, so lying in bed is a waste of a good day! Port Erin is a fabulous location in the round, with an excellent beach/harbour and a very friendly community - everyone knows each other, so if one person can't help you, then they will surely recommend someone else who can! 10 out of 10 as a place to visit and stay!

Wonderful stay in a gorgeous location

We had a fantastic stay at the Milking Parlour. Friendly host and neighbours. Amazing views. Beautiful, comfortable accommodation equipped with everything we could possibly need. Plenty of things to do in the area. It’s a perfect place for a visit to Port Erin and we will most certainly return.
