Overview
More
Milntown is set in over fifteen acres of beautiful gardens in the North of the Isle of Man, near Ramsey and is one of the Island’s most historic houses. Originally the home of one of the leading families on the Isle of Man -the ‘Christians’ - Milntown has also been a school for young ladies and a hotel. More recently it once again reverted to being a private house owned by Lady Edwards and subsequently her son Sir Clive. Upon his death, in 1999, a Trust was created to maintain the house and gardens for the benefit of the Manx people, in line with the wishes of Sir Clive. Milntown House is open for tours each Wednesday and Saturday from April - September. Garden Tours are held monthly, please visit our website for further information regarding tours and other events held at MilntownMilntown also has a restaurant that can cater for up to sixty private diners or an elite fine dining experience for up to 14 guests in the old Milntown dining room. Larger numbers can also be catered for with a bespoke marquee in the stunning garden.

The gardens are really beautiful and very well tended. The restaurant is outstanding with first rate lunches and home baking. Very highly recommend a visit.

Thank you for your review Clare - we're so glad you had a good visit and sorry there wasn't a large selection of cakes, but at least you got to sample our famous scones with rhubarb fresh from our own kitchen gardens!

Enjoyed a visit to the gardens today, the plants and flowers were lovely and the gardens smelled wonderful, lots of honeysuckle in flower at present. Had lunch in the restaurant afterwards which was very tasty and reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

One of the best gardens that we have visited. Lovely, different plants, beautiful setting, things for children. An excellent visit! And the locals tell us that it just keeps getting better.

Really enjoyed a visit here after a nice coffee & toasted tea cake in their café. Some very interesting plants. Free entry for HHA members always a bonus.
