Wonderful ViewWow , what a wonderful view. Surrounded my lovely mountains afar and lovely garden, fruit trees close up. Described as a private space adjoining owners main house and its exactly that, though I do feel a door on the stairway up to the apartment would make it more private. Bill and Lisa the hosts, a lovely couple and never bothered us unless to help, but they use their backdoor a lot and their garage door, so not for the light sleepers or those wishing to enjoy a holiday lie in. That said the property has everything you could ask for, the TV signal bit hit and miss, sofa bit low and squishy rather then comfortable, but a wonderful comfy bed, large kitchen area with loads of equipment and hot water on tap, literally. Velux roof windows made for a light airy feel and the view out of doors onto balcony and when sitting out a Wow !! Definitely need car to get around or good walking shoes. To sum up, we had a lovely stay, mostly peaceful. Lovely hosts, who made us welcome and lovely to meet the dogs, Rosie and Alfie and their side kick the cat.

Quiet peaceful stay with fantastic viewsLovely stay !hosts were very helpful and nice we enjoyed our stay but for 11 days self catering was a whopping £1950. But when I looked at the property a week later it was £1450 . The price was ramped up because of the TT . That is my only gripe

Refreshing StayWe loved staying at Close Vark. From the quiet, the peaceful surroundings to the magnificent view. There are all the basics you need to cook, eat and relax. There was also a kind touch of some milk, butter and bread. The owners were so friendly and kind when we needed somewhere to store our bicycles and the access is superb. We would definitely stay again

Fabulous stayThis is the second time we have stayed at Close Vark. The location is quiet with gorgeous views. The property itself is very spacious and in addition includes an outdoor space with table, chairs and great views. Wifi excellent. We sometimes ate in - the kitchen has everything for cooking you need. In addition to the breakfast bar there was the bonus of a separate dining table which could seat four. We also used the recommendation of the Thai cuisine at Sulby nearby which was very good. There is nice ensuite with combined bath and shower. Ramsey is also very near (10 minutes in the car) with two large supermarkets for provisions and places to eat (Italian Ravioli House in particular). Finally Bill and Lisa have been excellent, welcoming, friendly and helpful hosts.

3-night staycation at Close Vark Farmhouse in AndreasWe live in Douglas and had a 3-night "staycation" in the apartment at Close Vark Farmhouse in Andreas (22 miles away) in September 2021. The apartment was very large; modern; clean; well decorated; light and had all that we needed for the stay. It also has a large balcony with good views and the area is very peaceful. We had meals at The Grosvenor (the local pub, about 1.5 miles away) and Vellika's (the Indian restaurant in Ramsey, about 5 miles away) - both were excellent. We visited the Wildlife Park and the IOM Motor Museum - both were interesting and enjoyable. We also visited Jurby Church and the Point of Ayre. If we had more time, we would have gone for more walks, as the countryside was very nice.

StaycationThe perfect place to get away from all the hussle and bussle. The grounds were plentiful and we had full use of the surrounding lake and orchards. Stunning views while we sat on the balcony too. The owners were very friendly and accommodating and we will definitely return.

Peace and quiet in rural Isle of ManThis little gem of an apartment is deep in the rural north of the island in the most beautiful setting with open views over the huge garden of the property and hills beyond to Snaefell. We were so lucky with the hot, sunny weather that we could eat out on the balcony every evening. The kitchen is very modern and well equipped and bedroom large with lots of storage. Smart modern bathroom - we were short of nothing. Highly recommended.

Great staycationMy husband and I have just spent a great three nights in the north of the island at Close Vark Farmhouse. Booking with Island Escapes was quick and easy and we were given clear instructions how to reach the property. First impressions on arrival was Wow. The apartment was light, airy and spotlessly clean. We loved the south facing balcony where we sat each morning to have our breakfast and any time we were in the property, helped along by the lovely sunny weather we had our entire stay. The view over the garden out to the northern hills was very special and we just liked to sit enjoying the peace and quiet when we werent out and about exploring this lovely part of the island. The apartment was spacious and very well equipped with everything we needed including a very thoughtful welcome pack. We were very happy with our stay and look forward to staying at Close Vark again.
