“Fantastic Accomodation”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We loved the accommodation especially the high vaulted ceilings of this recently modernised barn conversion. The flow of the rooms was great which are all at ground floor level. There is a lovely spacious farmhouse kitchen, a very comfortable living room, separate hall and bathroom with modern shower, and a large and spacious master bedroom. We also had access to the garage with automatic doors which we used to store our push bikes over night. The garden was huge and well maintained, and the steam train ran parallel with it and the station is only a short walk away. The Accomodation is rated 4 star, and it definitely exceeded our expectations.

“Faultless Accomodation with the perfect hosts”
Reviewed 13 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I booked the Byre for myself and my father, who is not so nimble any more.
Having everything at one level, with easy access and a large walk-in shower was ideal for us.
Despite a very early arrival we were made most welcome and even had a food and wine parcel left for us.
The accommodation was faultless and as comfortable and well appointed as you could wish for. Everything is included to make your stay as easy as possible.
I cannot recommend this place enough.
We will be returning.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 27 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

excellent home away from home environment, the hosts were wonderfully welcoming, friendly and accommodating, the scenery was picture perfect and the Mira shower was really unnecessarily decadent. We loved every minute of it and would love to go again. Would reccomend to anyone looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway not too far from everything. Out of the handful of self catering places I've stayed at, this is my favourite. The photos of the cottage don't do it justice.

Many thanks,

Ben, Heli and Jen.

“Beautiful Byre, Brilliant Hosts”
Reviewed 18 March 2016 for a stay in August 2015

My husband and I stayed at The Byre in August 2015 while catching up with friends on the Isle of Man. Lorraine and Nigel were very welcoming and gave us advice on places to visit, where to eat and drink, local activities happening on the island the weekend we stayed and the best beaches for an IOM swim. The Byre itself was the perfect place to stay. It was cosy and welcoming and had a beautiful bedroom with a lovely outlook onto the garden. After a night out sampling the local hospitality, the kitchen was the perfect place for tea and toast with the sun streaming in the large windows. Staying here felt like a home away from home and I would love to come back to stay here.

“Lovely private cottage to stay in whilst we visited family for Christmas”
Reviewed 16 March 2016 for a stay in December 2015

My boyfriend and I were on the island visiting family over the Christmas period and were told about this cottage by family friends. Nigel and Lorraine were very accommodating with our last minute booking - even putting a bottle of wine in the fridge and setting up a christmas tree in the living room for our arrival. The road up to The Byre is a farm track and you wouldn't know it was there if just driving past. The beds were very comfortable and the surroundings so peaceful that we slept brilliantly every night helping us prepare for the daily onslaught of a family christmas! The kitchen was very well equipped and we had everything we needed. The living room was lovely and cosy on the cold winter nights and the entire cottage was spotlessly clean. I know the Isle of Man well having grown up here and the Byre provided the perfect base for us to visit family and for me to show my boyfriend the island. I strongly recommend taking advantage of Lorraine and Nigel's endless knowledge of great walks, eateries and drinking holes on the island. And don't forget to look up - the night skies in this place are incredible!
