“Excellent, well equipped cottage - perfect for young children”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This was a holiday booked with extended family, and the set up is perfect for families large or small. The owners were so lovely and couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating - and our children (4, 5 and 7) loved the animals - especially the chance to take the goats for a walk...! Everything had been thought of, including a good selection of books for all ages in each cottage, board games and a brilliant outside play area with play house. I would absolutely recommend staying here.

“Great with young children”
Reviewed July 24, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed here for one week with our 8 month baby and toddler.
The cottages were clean and spacious.
Cot and high chair were provided.
There are plenty of facilities to entertain the children including visiting farm animals and a garden with plenty of toys.
There is no where to eat close by and generally have to drive.

“Perfect holiday stay with access to TT course”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I have stayed in the Peacock's rest now for the past 4 years, for both weeks of the TT. It has very good access to the TT course at Ballacraine. The cottage sleeps 2 & is surprisingly roomy with everything needed for each 2 week stay. There are shared laundry facilities. this makes it very easy on carrying stuff on a bike. It is a very relaxing & quiet on the farm. Fiona, Tony & family have become very good friends & are always a pleasure to meet up with each year. Kionslieu itself has easy bus access to Douglas, Peel etc & if necessary taxi (£12 from Douglas 2013 after midnight) Ideal holiday location- I have been going to the IOM since the 60's & I can always find somewhere to go on the island. I would strongly recommend a stay.

“a truly lovely place to stay”
Reviewed June 21, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

kionslieu farm is a family run farm/livery yard. the pretty surroundings house rabbits, goats, sheep, chickens and poppy the retriever all waiting for fuss from anyone passing by. the cottages are all very comfortable and extremely well equipped. the farm is situated centrally which makes exploring the island easy. a very enjoyable break was had by all and nothing was too much trouble for Fiona and Tony.

“Loved it even with all the snow”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed in the 2 bed cottage with our 2 young children 4 & 2. The cottage was well equipped and clean, and the kids loved the bunk beds. This is a great place for kids, having rabbits, chickens, goats and sheep for the to interact with. There are swings and a slide, play house and a barn with pool table and games.

The washing machine is in a shared area and costs extra if you need to do washing.

Owners of the cottage were very helpful, esp with directions to the hospital, when our daughter cut her chin, well what can you do!

Heating worked, which given the snow we needed! We still managed an Easter egg hunt in the snow drifts.
