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.

2 lunch visits and both same excellent standards. Good choice, very nice staff, super food, very nice atmosphere, Only quibble was ridiculous price of £4 for what seemed like less than half a pint of beer - ruins the occasion that sort of pricing.

Thank you for taking the time to rate Milntown on trip advisor. We are delighted that you enjoyed your overall visit. Regarding the beer, the only beer that we serve that is £4 is the bottled IPA which is 500ml so nearly a pint, if you were served a different, smaller beer and charged the same price we are extremely...

The scones and tea-cakes tasted home-made and were delicious - the herbal tea and coffee hot and welcoming after a long walk on a sunny but chilly winter's day. The restrooms were bright and clean. This is not a "chi-chi" squashy sofa kind of place - nor is it a student type of "I will sit here for hours with... More

We decided to have sunday lunch as the menu sounded lovely. However, when our meal came I was surprised at how little we got on our plate . Two slices of meat and mostly vegetables served on a fairly small plate. Although it was delicious it was definately not substantial enough.

It's so nice to just sit outside in the warm weather!!! I have to say it was amazing! The food was lovely and there's even a few children's meals to! I recommend trying to book a table, that was the only trouble we had. But it was still amazing!

We visited Milntown on one of our regular holidays on the island and really enjoyed our visit.Plenty of interesting plants and trees to look at in a very peaceful atmosphere. We then stopped for coffee and cake in the restaurant and it was very fresh and much cheaper than many other places on the island. The house was closed to... More

My wife and I have been holidaying on the island for many years. I am almost embarrassed to admit that this was our first visit to Milntown Gardens. We use public transport and although the bus stops right outside, the Milntown.org website's 'plan a visit' tab doesn't show this. I think they are missing a trick there. We spent a... More

Came here for lunch, which was superb, and decided to walk off some of it by looking round the gardens. So much to see and very peaceful. Love the chainsaw chairs etc. and the grass maze. I have recently read the biography of Iliam Dhone and would have liked to see inside the house but it was closed. Will have... More

We all really enjoyed this visit. Gardens was full of different plants and paths to follow lots of inspiration. It took us about 50 mins to wander around. We stopped at the restaurant for coffee and cake. The cake was to die for not that expensive compared to the top of Snaefell. We would go back if we were to... More

Visited for walk round the gardens and although they are immaculate they are only small and we were round in about 10 - 15 mins. The charge is £3. We did consider having lunch but it looked too expensive to be honest. The visit would have been greatly enhanced if the old owners motorcycle collection had been available to view.... More

Thank you for visiting Milntown. We are sorry that you were a little disappointed with your visit and it was only for a short period of time.

The gardens of Milntown house were well worth the entry fee. We were not able to visit at a time when the house was open but maybe next time. the coffee shop/restaurant was excellent with a good range of food to choose from.
