About

Situated in the South

Settled on an upland plateau, in the shadow of Meayll Hill and overlooking the Calf of Man, Cregneash was one of the last strongholds of the Manx language and customs which characterised the traditional crofting way of life.

Step inside the original cottages to find out how the crofter lived through an engaging experience that includes domestic skills and craft demonstrations as well as stories of their rugged self-sufficient lifestyles.

A walk around Cregneash will reveal some indigenous Manx animal breeds and traditional farming practices. Take some time to enjoy the ever changing seasons and unique natural history.

Take care: For your own comfort and safety, wear sensible shoes and take care on uneven surfaces whilst visiting this site.
