“Quality accommondation in center of island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Staying at Peacock Rest for the 3d time, it is a well equipped cottage; it has kitchenware I personally do not have.
The place is a quiet place, just outside Upper Foxdale, a working farm with facilities for children (playground, sheep den, boardgames).
The hospitality of Fiona and Tony is great.
Situated almost in the center of the island it is a good place to explore the island, with a car needed to do that.

“Truly outstanding for families”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Kionslieu Farm Cottages were truly outstanding as a venue for our three families in August 2013. The cottages are charming: beautifully presented and fully equipped, in a lovely farm setting. Our grandchildren were encouraged to feed and pet the animals and take them for walks, which they enjoyed greatly. There was also plenty of play equipment - indoors and out. Fiona and Tony were very welcoming - kind, helpful and genuinely interested in what we were doing. We were all sorry to leave, but will be back.

“Beautifully maintained family friendly cottages.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We had a wonderful fortnight in Blackberry Cottage with our two year old and four year old. The cottage was beautifully maintained (as was the entire farm) with all the facilities you need for a relaxing holiday with small children. It’s a very peaceful location, apart from occasionally hearing the horses or chickens, it was almost as though we were the only people there.

Fiona and Tony were very welcoming and friendly and we would definitely recommend Kionslieu cottages to family and friends. Next time we visit the Island we will certainly go back there to stay.

“Excellent, well equipped cottage - perfect for young children”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
