Hotels are great to stay in during a trip and there are plenty available on the Island. But for your holiday to the Isle of Man you and your family deserve something a bit different. Staying on a farm is a new option during your visit and offers an experience unlike any other.
Families interested in Dark Sky Tourism will love the farms as they are close to several of the designated "dark sky" locations on the Island. The clear night skies combined with locations that are clear of any light pollution ensure a great stargazing experience.
Children who love animals will get the chance to spend time with them, feed them and see how they live on the working farms. This is a real opportunity for them to understand where the food they eat comes from and how it is produced locally.
The chance to travel via steam train, visit an authentic "living museum" at Cregneash and then return home to see a real working farm and experience that life will make your Manx holiday one that your family will talk about for years to come.
That is not to say you will be living in an ancient Manx rustic manner on the farm. Self-catering is available if you want to go it alone and with almost a dozen locations you are bound to find the ideal spot. Bed & breakfast options in four locations give a hearty meal for the family before a day adventuring, or in the morning after a day travelling to the Isle of Man.
