Children will adore the farm animals and private tours of the milking parlour (on request).   Local pub.


Attached to the owner's Prospect House Farm with just 5 steps up to the cottage, Calf Cottage benefits from being all on one level.

We have been so lucky to find such a beautiful and comfortable place to stay. The view in the snow was spectacular. Thank you so much for the warm welcome, the tour of the milking parlour(a real highlight) and the recommendations of walks and pubs. Suzie and Dan Walker Isle of Man.
