Herring Guest Book

as everything we hoped for – warm – inviting. Just like visiting friends.

The perfect location visiting the IOM.

Lovely to return after so long. Played lots of golf and enjoyed the sea. Thank you.

Fantastic everything. Did not want to leave!

Had a lovely time here. Great to have peace and quit. Everything wonderful. Weather was also good – will be back again.

What a wonderful place! To have seals in the sea at the bottom of our garden is just amazing. Could walk around here all day if the rest of the IOM wasn’t so great as well. Thank you so much.

Enjoyed our time in IOM – our first visits. Lovely place.

Came with nothing to do and then ran out of time! Beware the seals! 

Location! See you next year!

A great week on the IOM made even more enjoyable by our stay at this fantastic location. Thank you very much.

Warm, comfortable cottage and 2 lovely sunny weeks.

Our first visit to the IOM. Had a great time. Cottage great.


We have enjoyed out stay: good weather, good walking and cycling, good accommodation – quiet and comfortable.

An absolutely wonderful place. Warm, clean and fantastic views of our beautiful Island. Thank you so very much.

The cottage was very clean, comfortable, cosy and well-equipped. We came here to recharge the batteries and spend quality family time together and its done what it says on the tin! Will definitely be back!

Our first stay here but will definitely be back. The cottage is lovely and the setting is wonderful.

We’ve had a lovely time. Our first time to the IOM. Saw 2 basking sharks and lots of seals and choughs. Gorgeous sunsets. Lovely holiday. Many thanks cottage was fab.

The cottage has been just as lovely as our last visit. I’m sure we’ll be back again. The children loved exploring the coves, had lovely walks and cycle rides. Have been to the IOM many times but this has to be our favourite place to stay. Many thanks.

Excellent base for an active week. Accommodation to a high standard and comfortable. A friendly seagull stood guard on the car.

What a fabulous place to stay. It was, as the previous guest have said, both comfortable and clean. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay again.

We have had a fantastic week. The cottage was very comfortable and very clean. We will be back next year for a longer visit.

Herring Cottage (only available since December 2014)

“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.
