A unique world in the heart of the Isle of Man. We would like to invite you to stay in one of our five, fully equipped, spacious holiday cottages and to give you the opportunity to be a part of Kionslieu life. From fun-filled activities, to a relaxing retreat, Kionslieu is the perfect location from which to start your adventures.


You won’t be woken up by tractors coming down the lane at 5 a.m or the milk lorry collecting the milk (we only farm beef cattle!); and you won’t arrive to muddy pot-holed lanes or have to tiptoe over cow pats. In fact, unless you want to meet the horses or feed the goats, you won’t know that you are on a working farm at all! And that’s what sets us apart from a traditional working farm break.

Our five traditional courtyard cottages are fully equipped and boast the character and charm one would expect from a country cottage. With spectacular views, large gardens, BBQ  and a children’s play area, there is ample space for you to enjoy your time with us, whether you want seclusion or to get out and about and get involved.

We want to make your journey to us as stress free as possible…. After all, it wouldn’t be an escape to the country if getting to us was a stressful experience. We offer all those little extras, which are particularly important if you are coming by air or travelling with children. Full size toiletries are provided in every cottage, so no need to worry about the inconvenience of liquid restrictions. We also have travel cots and highchairs and provide a baby bath and potty on request.

Board games, dvds and books are provided and for outdoor types we are perfectly situated for walkers and cyclists, with storage available for muddy boots, wet clothes and bikes, bike washing facilities, laundry and lockable bike store.

Being centrally situated, Kionslieu is an ideal base from which to visit all attractions. Across the island there are many nature reserves and spots ideal for wildlife lovers and birdwatchers alike. There are also many excellent golf courses on the island including the links course at Castletown, voted in the top 1,000 courses in the world.

All our cottages have baths as well as a shower, so at the end of the day you can relax in the tub and enjoy a glass of wine!

Whether it’s a family holiday or a get-away-from-it-all break, our situation allows a stay that suits every generation.

You will have the peace of mind of knowing that the farm cottages are under the personal supervision of resident owners Fiona & Tony Barker who live in the adjacent farmhouse.
