Lovely stay at Maggies Cottage

Our first visit to the IoM so thought we would stay somewhere different as we normally use hotels. The cottage is ideally located on a small farm, with great views and some nice walks, and being not far off the main road (TT course) within easy driving for the whole island. The cottage is well equipped enabling us to cook our own meals. Phil greeted us and made us welcome straight away. We have already recommended it to our friends and hope to be returning…!

Beautiful!

Beautiful, well- equipped cottage in the perfect location - quiet and peaceful yet close to public transport links. Not having a car with us, 'Go Explore ' cards were invaluable for getting around using the excellent public transport system. There are many lovely walks around the island, including the coastal path, the Steam Heritage trail and a lovely walk up Greeba Mountain and beyond. For the reasonably fit, we found a car is not a necessity to explore the beautiful island. Phil and Fliss were great hosts.

Great place to stay

The location of the property was excellent, Phil met us as we arrived, nothing was too much trouble and had loads of knowledge about the island. We had a lovely time and the weather was fantastic, which made it all the better. Isle of Man is a lovely place, we will be back for sure.

Perfect retreat

We stayed at Maggies during TT practice week and it was the perfect location for catching the action. The cottage is located on a small farm and is beautifully presented, spotlessly clean and well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed waking up every morning to the stunning views and the sound of birdsong not to mention having chickens, sheep and horses on the doorstep. Maggies is the perfect place to get away from it all but close enough to main roads to make it a perfect base for exploring. The hosts Phil and Fliss live on the farm so were at hand if we needed anything and nothing was too much trouble. We’d love to return!

Perfect comfortable cottage in a perfect location with lovely views. Also for us very dog friendly.

Maggie's the perfect holiday cottage for touring the island with amazing views. The owners Phil and Fliss, made us feel very welcome. The cottage is very clean and comfortable with every thing you need. We have never slept so well and felt so relaxed in a holiday cottage before. Very much looking forward to another 2 weeks walking holiday at Maggie's with our dog.

A Rural Retreat

Firstly the instructions provided by Island Escapes to find Maggies Cottage were excellent as well as very reassuring as this was quite a rural spot to find. The "what3words" app narrows it down even further. Greeted on arrival by the owners and shown around this beautifully presented and well equipped 2 floor cottage. Also introduced to the various farm animals (sheep, chickens, horses, ducks and dogs) and much time was spent watching them over the week. Being there at lambing time was also wonderful to see the new-borns. It is also a wonderful location for visiting all corners of the island, whatever your interests. We particularly enjoy walking and so made use of the disused railway line at the foot of the drive to walk to Peel. There is a cheap and frequent bus service back if legs are tired. We also climbed the highest point (Snaefell) from Laxey and took the lovely quaint mountain railway back. We loved old Laxey and in particular the easy to do Heritage Historic Trail (which gives some idea of the mining there). We visited Castletown and Port Erin (also nice towns) and walked from each along the coast and glens. Lovely flowers at this time of year and also many seabirds. Even saw harbour porpoises in The Sound overlooking the Calf of Man at the southern tip of the island. The island has plenty to offer whatever your interests and it was great to do so from such a nice comfortable base with good wi-fi to plan your day. Thank you Phil and Fliss and every success for the future.

Couldn't have chosen a better place for ou first staycation.

A lovely location and a beautiful little cottage. We were met by Phil who was so welcoming we felt at home straight away. The cottage is exactly as it appears on the website. We chose the week in which we had the three big storms and snow. The cottage was so warm and cosy, we were always happy get "home". Disappointed we couldn't spend more time with the lovely pets around the farm. We will definitely return (availability permitting)! Absolutely highly recommended.

A brilliant holiday cottage!

Maggie’s Cottage is a wonderful place for a holiday, set in beautiful scenery in the centre of the island. There is easy access to the Heritage Trail for walks and cycling, with many other local walks and features nearby. The cottage is a delight, well equipped and comfortable. We loved the different animals on the farm including the chickens that wander about freely. Phil and Fliss are great hosts, full of useful information and suggestions. Nothing is too much bother for them.

Autumn break at Maggies cottage

Had a great stay! Thank you xx Lovely hosts, location and facilities x We enjoyed the easy access to the Heritage track and had three days exploring 'by bike' - bicycle this time! Easy to get to Peel and Douglas too by bus or car and a great central location to explore the rest of the island. The reknown Hawthorn Restaurant is handy too!

A Welcome Break Away

We had a lovely 4 night stay at Maggies. We were met by Phil, Fliss, chickens, ducks and the 2 well behaved dogs. The cottage had everything we needed for a short stay. The bed was comfortable and the shower was powerful. The wi-fi was excellent, fast and reliable. There are plenty of different walks from the farm and it was handy to pop into The Hawthorn or The Crosby while on our walks. We would highly recommend.

Perfect location for our Manx adventure

Phil and Fliss, the property owners, we're very welcoming when we arrived. The cottage itself was lovely and had everything we needed for our stay. We loved the spiral staircase and found the whole cottage lovely and cosy. We were also thrilled to find the dishwasher - who wants to wash up on holiday?! The location was perfect for travelling all over the island, and the local pub/restaurant The Hawthorn did a delicious Sunday lunch.

Maggies Cottage

Phil and Fliss were excellent hosts. Very quiet peaceful rural location in the center of the island. Maggies cottage was perfect for us, we hope to return. We have one suggestion a microwave in the kitchen would have been useful.

Maggies Cottage

We stayed at Maggies Cottage for 21 days from 3rd July to 24th July 2021. It was really very quaint situated in an elevated position with views of Greeba and the Breary hills when looking North. Fliss and her husband Phil the owners were very welcoming and always on hand to help us out. The old steam railway track is a 3 minute walk from the cottage which will take you east towards Douglas or West to Peel likewise if you go up to the main road you have a bus stop which takes you to the capital or to Peel and Ramsey in the North of the Island. Our stay was very enjoyable and we were very lucky with the weather. Our only negative with the cottage is there was no microwave and we also feel there should of been a dressing table mirror and stool in the bedroom, other than that we couldn’t fault it and would definitely recommend to anyone. We would stay again
