  • A truly "home from home" experience

    Langton Cottage is situated in a quiet residential street, with a small back garden which backs on to the harbour at Port St. Mary. Kevin (the cottage owner) has thought of everything one could need in the cottage, which creates a really welcoming feel as soon as you are inside, and is therefore a wonderful place to return to after a busy day sightseeing the equally wonderful Isle of Man.

  • Great location, beautifully presented.

    Our second visit to this charming cottage, we had a great holiday. Super location by the harbour, the period cottage is really well equipped and comfortable. Port St Mary is quiet with great walking and beaches. Nice cafes and great pub, evening dining at the Italian (book ahead) or the Indian but there's no need to eat out with a fully equipped kitchen! Already booked for 2018 - can't wait!

  • Welcoming, sea view cottage.

    It was a pleasure to stay in this fabulous cottage a stone's throw from the centre of St. Mary Port. We were welcomed by the owner and shown around, with clear explanations on how to use the appliances. The linens were all beautiful and the beds very comfortable. The grandchildren loved walking to the beach and the rock pools with their nets. Some great eateries close by and attractions within 1/2 hour drive. The perfect place for an I.O.M holiday!!

  • Langton Cottage - a Manx Treasure

    We have just returned from a wonderful stay in Langton Cottage in Port St Mary, Isle of Man. Over the years we have stayed in many self-catering cottages and Langton Cottage is at the very top of our self-catering experiences. On arrival we received a fantastic Manx welcome from the owner, Kevin Sykes, which included a detailed tour of the house and equipment. We were left to enjoy a welcome pack of wine, tea/coffee, Manx cheese and biscuits and lots of information booklets and brochures to help plan our week's stay. The dog even had his own a result he was a good boy all week. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean and extremely well-equipped and comfortable. It is also fantastically well-located for numerous beautiful walks, running, sea-related activities and plenty of rock climbing/pooling which our 7 and 11 year olds loved. It is a perfect place to stay to visit the whole Island, but in particular the beautiful South. We all enjoyed coming back to Langton House at the end of each day. We would not hesitate to recommend the cottage and would love to visit again. Thank you for helping to make our stay on the South of the Island so memorable, Kevin.

  • Very comfortable cottage in excellent location next to the harbour

    A spacious and well equipped cottage in great location with views of the harbour. Short walk to Port St. Mary and coastal path. Very helpful owner and particularly liked the welcome pack of wine and local cheeses. Would definitely recommend as a place to stay.

  • A lovely stay in a lovely cottage with a lovely location and everything we needed!

    — The Stewart Family, 29 Jul 2017
  • Simply excellent

    Fully equipped, spotlessly clean and in a wonderful position overlooking the harbour. Plenty of room for our family group of 6 and the perfect base for a stay on the beautiful Isle of Man. Kevin is a great host and takes pride in providing a self catering home from home.

  • “Well-equipped, spacious cottage in a picturesque ideal location for exploring”

    I don't think we have ever stayed in a more well-equipped house with such a helpful owner. We are railway enthusiasts and when we arrived the owner had laid out railway-specific tourist literature for us. Not only that but all the information we could possibly have needed including restaurants, transport and attractions was in the house. Very helpful! There is plenty of parking opposite the house on the road and it is only a short walk into the centre of Port St Mary and to bus stops. The view from the house itself is beautiful especially from the back garden. The house itself was spotless and felt very cosy.

  • The Lovely Langton Cottage

    We stayed in this cottage for a week at the beginning of July and wished we could have stayed longer. We were met and shown around our accommodation by the friendly owner Kevin who lives next door. He respects your privacy but also there if you need him for anything at all. The cottage had everything that you could possibly need for your stay and is exceptionally clean and comfortable. There is a lovely little garden to sit out in with a beautiful view of the boats in the bay. The welcome pack of wine, biscuits and cheese was a lovely thought and very much enjoyed. Kevin has certainly thought of everything to make your stay in the cottage so perfect. There are lots of good restaurants about and we would advise to book ahead for an evening meal as they are busy. Langton cottage was a lovely base for us as we explored the Isle of Man and we highly recommend this cottage if you are looking for a place to stay. We certainly hope to come back again! Thanks Kevin!

  • Langton cottage is one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in, over the last 20 years. A lovely surprise of a welcome supply of local food treats when we arrived, and fresh flowers. Kevin had thought of everything to start off our holiday. Beautiful views and walks right from the door, whatever the weather. A homely cottage with everything you could need, clean and comfortable. The island is dog friendly and we found pubs, tea rooms and attractions where our little dog Oscar was welcomed. We will definitely return!

    — Sandra Prentice, 02 Jul 2017
  • This cottage is as described. A home from home with everything you could want and more. If it wasn't there Kevin was happy to supply it. Nothing is too much trouble. Even our dog had a "welcome pack"! The cottage location in Port St Mary is excellent, whether you want to just use it as a base to explore the Isle of Man, or if it's quiet and tranquillity you desire on your holiday. You are close to all modes of transport, and the shops are a pleasant walk along the seafront. We would certainly stay again.

  • A well-equipped and comfortable holiday cottage in a perfect location overlooking the harbour. This was an excellent base for our walking holiday and the coastal walks were spectacular. Kevin the owner lives next door and was more than helpful. His local knowledge and provision of walking maps and leaflets was invaluable. The attention to small details was appreciated and the welcome pack even included a bottle of wine and cheeses. We were also fortunately provided with wall to wall sunshine which was a huge bonus, but the selection of books, magazines, games and a TV with access to movies would have catered for bad weather. We would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.

  • Pefect harbourside property with views over Port St. Mary bay and beyond”

    The location is perfect - the harbour is on the doorstep! This is a great family-friendly property within walking distance of the local amenities (shops, takeaways and pubs). The property is very much a "home-from-home", being well furnished and very comfortable. Easy access to the attractions on the South of the island and beyond (Douglas 30 mins, Laxey 40 mins, Ramsey 50 mins). Kevin (the owner) lives next door so is always available should he be needed and he even allows well-behaved dogs to stay (many thanks). We'll visit again!

  • Excellent.
    Cottage in great position and has all amenities.
    Great time on IOM

    — The Hunt Family, 06 Apr 2017
  • Langton Cottage was a great base for our family reunion week in the IOM (with family members from Canada, Scotland and the South of England). Well equipped, comfortable beds, good kitchen, and a perfect location for us. Kevin was very welcoming and the whole process went very smoothly, even booking from Canada.

    — Kevin Wilson, 03 Oct 2016

Beautiful views from kitchen and lounge window , the beds were exceptionally comfortable , ample room for six people , very well equipped cottage throughout , we highly recommend this cottage , and when we come back to Isle Of Man its the place to stay for us. The local pub a very short walk away with nice friendly people , well worth a visit. And Kevin made sure there was plenty of info on what to do and see on the Island. All in all a wonderful stay. 16/09/16

    — Edinboro Family, 17 Sep 2016
  • We had a fantastic time at Langton cottage. The house was very well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Beautiful views over the harbour and access straight on to the costal paths meant that we could enjoy the beach easily. Kevin was helpful and on hand to give advise on the local area, without being over bearing! Thanks again Kevin and see you next year!

    — Elle Homewood, 08 Sep 2016
  • Fantastic cottage in a great location! The house is a beautiful period property, and really well-equipped. Newly renovated (new bathroom, new kitchen and new appliances, decorated throughout). Lots of personal touches, lovely of the owner to share his beautiful home and also his fantastic collection of art objets d'art. Garden very nice, small but a real suntrap and stunning views across the harbour. Ever-changing view of sea, hills, boats. Port St Mary a really nice village, quiet but ideal for race week if you want to escape the hustle & bustle but still close enough to the action. Stupendous coastal walking. Easy parking. We'll definitely be back, already booked for 2017 - can't wait!

  • Couldn't have asked for more. The view from the landing window was amazing. Lovely to walk out onto the sea front. Very peaceful and plenty of space. House immaculate and well equipped

    — Christina Teare, 12 Aug 2016
  • This cottage is really lovely and we have had a wonderful holiday. We have had everything we needed and much more and it is the unexpected extras which have helped us to have such a good time. I have no hesitation in highly recommending it as there can be nowhere better for a relaxing holiday in such lovely surroundings.

    — Glynis Johnson, 06 Aug 2016
  • We have recently returned from a lovely week at Langton Cottage, what a pretty cottage. Beautifully decorated & well equipped, we loved the coal fire on cooler nights. Port St Mary has lots to offer, there are impressive sea views when you arrive and there is a lovely coastal walk just past the lifeboat station. Nice choice of restaurants locally, we visited the Indian where you take your own wine (there's a co-op nearby). For an evening in Douglas we caught the steam train in the afternoon & got the bus back. Thank you Kevin.

    — Mike & Cerys Thomas, 04 Aug 2016
  • We were so pleased to find Langton Cottage for a thoroughly enjoyable visit to the IOM. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped with the most comfortable beds. A home from home enhanced by the lovely views of both sun rise and set over the bay from the garden.

    — Christine and Peter, 24 Jul 2016
  • Very comfortable & homely & highly recommended

    — Alan, Dave, Graham , Martin, Roy & Chris, 22 Jul 2016
  • We had a week at Langton Cottage & it simply wasn't long enough! The cottage was a home from home; comfortable, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything we needed. All the bedrooms are an excellent size & the living area is spacious & tastefully furnished. Lots of nice touches; my Mum enjoyed a holiday read from the extensive bookshelves & there are lots of leaflets & an information booklet to help you make the most of your time away. The location is simply stunning & you could never tire of waking up to the view of the harbour. We stayed with a 21 month old & we found the cottage to be very family friendly; high chair and cot were provided & the gorgeous garden was perfect for playing. Would highly recommend this cottage if you are planning a stay in the Isle of Man!

  • Lovely Cottage, very clean, lovely village and great views. Very well equipped and very comfortable.
    Loved the wine, cheese & biscuits on arrival - nice touch. An excellent holiday.

    — The Bennett Family , 24 Jun 2016
  • After 40+ holidays on the Isle we found our week in Langton Cottage to be the best in terms of location and accommodation. A lot of thought has gone into providing everything you could need. Looking out over the well kept little garden to the view across the harbour and mountains beyond made time spent in the kitchen and dining area a real pleasure. The lounge was comfortable for relaxing in after a busy day, good free internet connection was a bonus and our 'Welcome Pack' was a very nice thought. Many thanks, Kevin.

  • Langton Cottage is a beautifully decorated, well thought out, very well presented home from home. It is in a lovely position overlooking the bay. Kevin really thought of everything, guide books, games, magazines, it was really well equipped for whatever the weather. Thank you for making us feel so welcome, we've had a lovely week.

    PS The Information Booklet was very nicely written and incredibly useful - thank you
