Milntown is set in over fifteen acres of beautiful gardens in the North of the Isle of Man, near Ramsey and is one of the Island’s most historic houses. Originally the home of one of the leading families on the Isle of Man -the ‘Christians’ - Milntown has also been a school for young ladies and a hotel. More recently it once again reverted to being a private house owned by Lady Edwards and subsequently her son Sir Clive. Upon his death, in 1999, a Trust was created to maintain the house and gardens for the benefit of the Manx people, in line with the wishes of Sir Clive. Milntown House is open for tours each Wednesday and Saturday from April - September. Garden Tours are held monthly, please visit our website for further information regarding tours and other events held at MilntownMilntown also has a restaurant that can cater for up to sixty private diners or an elite fine dining experience for up to 14 guests in the old Milntown dining room. Larger numbers can also be catered for with a bespoke marquee in the stunning garden.

We have never been here before. What an absolutely fabulous event. Both of my kids (almost 8 and 3) loved spending a couple of hours doing the treasure hunt and exploring the grounds. We all loved the Giants throne and table and the kids loved the woods and the dinosaur carving. The gardens were well maintained and I am looking... More

Was here on a slightly overcast September day so the gardens were not at there best but still a pleasant hour or two was spent walking the garden. Had a nice cup of coffee in the conservatory cafe which by the fact that every table except 2 were reserved for Sunday lunch must be very popular The house is only... More

Spent an afternoon here recently. The gardens are beautiful. They cover approximately 15 acres including a kitchen garden growing fruit and vegetables which are used in the cafe. The formal gardens were ablaze with flowers and shrubs of every colour. There is a working water mill and a large pond complete with the resident ducks. The walk through the woodland... More

Went here for lunch and had the burger (naked), smothered in cheese with homemade pickled veg, coleslaw and salad. Came with chips, prob best on Island as crisp on the outside and fluffy, yummy naughtiness on the inside. The bottomless pit then had a toblerone cheesecake, which looked delish, unfortunately as I can't eat wheat (joints swell) could only look... More

Short visit with 3 young children on a warm, sunny day. Able to enjoy lunch outside before exploring the gardens. Initially this was a small, well laid out formal garden, which had my kids complaining they were bored, in spite of a koi pond. This gave way to an old mill with a small collection of vintage motorbikes and cars... More
