Herring Cottage Visitors Book


Thank you for a fabulous stay at Herring Cottage – it really is the most spectacular location for a holiday and staying in such a wonderful and luxurious cottage….We have some very special memories to take home so many thanks. 

What more can we say that has not already been said?…beautiful house, beautiful location and spectacular scenery. We were lucky enough to see around 50 seals on the rocks. Lovely calm sea and birds nesting; very peaceful and heart-warming after our busy, noisy lives at home. I’m sure we shall return. Thank you, Langness.

Had a fantastic time and we love the cottage. Considering booking for next year.

Many thanks. The cottage is fantastic. We absolutely love it.  I saw loads of seals today.

We had a lovely stay thank you and it was really great to catch up with the family.

Just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic week at Herring Cottage!  It’s in such a stunning location with ever changing views and the weather was just brilliant.


5 Stars from us too! And so lucky with the weather.

Fabulous location, beautiful cottage.  We loved watching the seals from the living room and from the rocks below the foghorn. Comfy beds, great showers, well-equipped kitchen. 5 stars from us! We hope to return.

Loved every minute here – loved to have stayed longer! Thanks for everything – the cottage has everything anyone could possibly need – fantastic array of equipment and entertainment.

Surely one of, if not THE, most iconic private residences on the island. And now you can stay there. We stayed in Herring Cottage and it was amazing. 360 degree views, really close to the sea and plenty of space. This cottage is larger than the west and east cottages and hence a bit more expensive, but worth every penny. The living room is out of this world, windows all around, high ceilings and views in every direction. The rooms are clean and sympathetic to the buildings 1820 build. I have walked past this building many times and always wondered what it was like on the inside, now I’ve seen it I want to own it more than any other place on earth I think, I’d never want to leave home. In the summer or winter it must be amazing. All I need now is a nice big Euro Millions win and the place actually coming up for sale ….. which sadly I don’t think it ever will. If you ever just want to get away from it all then this is the place to come. We’ll be back!

Thanks lots Fen…..I would like to book Herring again…… Thanks lots for all your help.

We had a lovely time, thanks very much. We may well come back later in the summer if you have availability.

I had a fine time so many thanks. I’m sure you are deserving of all 5 Stars!

We had a great time, the cottage position is amazing. (by email)

We had a great time thank you

So pleased to have been here for Christmas and New Year. Beautiful location – stormy but very cosy and one of the most amazing places we’ve stayed. Thank you, Fen, for everything you did to make our stay so special. Will definitely be back!


Stunning scenery. Lovely lighthouse!


Wow! What an amazing place! Take time to wander along the coastal paths – either way – awesome! Will be back again soon – I hope! Thanks for a magical holiday!

Thanks so much for the loveliest place to stay. We’ve had the most romantic getaway with the most beautiful scenery. We don’t want to leave – will definitely come back next year!

First visit back to the IOM in 38 years – as beautiful as I remember! Love it at Langness – seeing seals was a highlight as well as an amazing meteor showing in the amazing night sky. We wer blessed with fabulous weather for the first four days but even the bad weather that followed was great to watch from the warm comfort of Herring Cottage. A very comfortable and relaxing setting for a family holiday 🙂 

Herring Cottage is like home from home but…….bigger and more beautiful location! Thank you for the welcome pack. The cottage is well-equipped and lovely and clean. The beds are sooooo comfortable – we love it!

I have really loved staying in this cottage – the scenery around it  – the little beaches and wonderful walks. I really enjoyed watching the seals near the fog-horn. This is perfect accommodation for any family holiday with a relaxed atmosphere and a lovely place to explore. I hope to come back one day!

My stay in this cottage has been great. The house is amazing. The scenery is also beautiful. Where else can you spot seals from the sofa in your living room?

Thank you for organising a lovely break for us.

We had a fantastic time and “herring” with its location and its superbly kitted out interior was the icing on the cake  –  everything was thought about even down to the binoculars!

“Best house……in the world!” (Sorry, couldn’t resist the Clarkson reference!) We’ve all had a fantastic stay – Mum, 2 brothers and 5 sisters! Highlights include a fantastic sunny day at the Calf of Mann, several visits to lovely Peel, a blast around parts of the TT course and some great meals here at Herring and West cottages – thank God for sisters! 🙂 

Wonderful! We will be back. Thank you for a brilliant and relaxing holiday.

Well, what more to say! Location, location, location! Comfort and joy all round. What a wonderful place to be. We have had a brilliant stay at Langness. Many thanks. 

Wow! Where do I start? From the moment we realised we had the opportunity to stay at Langness we knew it was going to be special. After confirming our booking, you went absolutely above and beyond! You assisted us with  car rental, golf, lunches, and even organised an opportunity to go kiteboarding! Thank you so much! We came here to watch the TT races but have left with an absolute love of the Island and Langness. The people of the IOM have been among the friendliest we could ever wish to meet and it will be very difficult to leave today. It has been an honour to call Langness home for the last week. To the Clarkson family: thank you so very much for sharing your iconic property with us.  As we board the plane tonight for a long journey back to Sydney, Australia, our memories of the IOM and Langness will remain absolutely unforgettable as we now feel part of the Langness family 🙂 Should any of you travel to Sydney please look us up (you have the details) it would be our pleasure to return the honour.  Thank you for showing us round in a way we will never forget. I think next time we will have to bring our wives and kids as I know they would love it here as well. (Already re-booked 2 cottages for 2017.)

Amazing place – everything we could have wanted. Thank you very much.

Perfect in every way. Home from home. Sad to leave.

Enjoyed the position of the lighthouse and the peaceful settings.

We had a lovely time in the Isle of Man and the house was just great and with the outdoors just there for us all to enjoy. Will definitely stay again when back on the Island, my son liked it so much he wanted to stay!

Thank you for all you did to make our stay so special. Herring is beautiful and we loved it out there. 

Highly recommend staying at the Cottages at Langness, unique beautiful accommodation with the most stunning views. We had the best time it was fantastic. Thanks very much it was perfect and enjoyed by all.

My sophisticated little urban kids amused themselves for hours in a rock pool – no laptop, no TV but very happy.
