Knockaloe Beg Farm
Isle of Man
Come and stay at our working Manx farm at Kirk Patrick, near Peel, on the west coast of the Isle of Man.
The farm is 2 miles from the picturesque Sunset City of Peel, which offers a variety of excellent restaurants, walks, pubs and beaches.
Knockaloe Beg Farmhouse has recently been rebuilt to replicate the original building, which dated back to the 16th century.
We offer a wide variety of accommodation types as shown here:
We have B&B accommodation in five double or twin en-suite bedrooms, all with TV/DVD and tea-making facilities. There are full internet services available and excellent mobile reception. There is a shared lounge for the sole use of guests. Breakfast is served at our 300 year old double gate legged round oak table.
The Stables is a luxury three bedroomed cottage sleeping six people all in ensuite rooms. All bedrooms can be either double or twin, with super, comfortable zip and link beds. The Stables has a large kitchen/living room.
The Byre is our former cowhouse.
This building has recently been converted into a luxury single storey cottage sleeping 3-4 people.
There is a sheltered private garden with outside furniture and views towards Peel.
The Bunkhouse, sleeping up to 8 people
Originally built in 1700s and converted in 2012, the Upper Room Bunkhouse is basic hostel accommodation. Here you can enjoy the same great location on our working farm, nestled under Peel Hill with its spectaular views north and south along the west coast of the Isle of Man, and eastwards across the central valley to Douglas. Just a short walk up Peel Hill brings you to the 95 mile coastal path of the Isle of Man, the Raad ny Foillan.
The Bothy, sleeping 2 people
This is the oldest property at Knockaloe Beg and has been restored in 2012 as authentically as possible.
There are mixed opinions as to its former use – maybe a fruit store or possibly housing for itinerant workers coming to help with harvesting, or even housing for the poor?
We have made the top room into a twin bed, hostel-type room with 2 single beds (can be put together), chest of drawers, kettle and microwave.
There is a toilet and basin outside at the bottom of the steps and showers across the yard below our Bunkhouse.
‘Glamping’ is becoming a really popular way to spend time out in the countryside with a bit of luxury thrown in!
We have built 2 lovely wooden cabins in the orchard behind our Farmyard. They are both en-suite and sleep up to 4 people.
One has an eco-hot tub, fuelled by wood and smelling of the cedar it is made of. You can sit in and look at the stars, or towards the hills.
The cabins are very comfortable and have a little shower room next to the double bed. There is a tiny kitchen area with fridge, microwave, kettle, sink and 2 ring electric hob. Then we have a pull out sofa bed, table, chairs and TV. An electric heater make these all year round cabins.
Outside on the decking is garden furniture, a BBQ to hire, and a fire pit.
