We had not stayed at Croit-ny-Bane before, and it was a lovely experience. A beautiful farmstead in a peaceful setting: just the sound of very well-cared-for chickens and cattle to wake you up in the morning. Our bedroom was possibly the nicest I've ever stayed in - spacious, clean, very comfortable with a wonderful bed, and views over the countryside and garden. There's a conservatory to sit in and an open, flowery garden in which to relax. I liked feeding the little Shetland pony, Laura, and meeting the sheep!
Sandra and Allan are kind, hospitable hosts - nothing was too much trouble for them. There were lots of little welcoming touches such as the Manx chocolates in the room, very big, fluffy towels, and the provision of slippers and bathrobes. Breakfast was fabulous : Sandra prides herself on her cooking and everything is locally sourced: the bacon, sausages, mushrooms and, of course, fresh, free range eggs. As a vegetarian, I felt my needs were well met.
We would definitely stay again. I just wish our stay could have been longer.
