Heading for a holiday on the Isle of Man and need somewhere to pitch for a night or two? How about the wonderfully named Silly Moos Campsite.
A dog friendly campsite with a riverside location, Silly Moos Campsite welcomes caravans and motorhomes, tents and awnings, and costs £8 a night per adult, £5 a night for each child (between two and 16 years old) – discounts are available for group bookings, or if you're staying for an extended period of time. It is a large, flat campsite that also has more private, secluded areas, if that is your preference, and it accommodates people camping alone, or families and groups of all ages.
On site you'll find shower and toilet facilities with 24-hour hot running water and hair dryers, as well as private cubicles with a toilet, a shower and a basin. There are a few electric hook-ups available, but if you need to charge your smartphone, tablet or laptop, fear not, as there's an area where you can charge your devices. Network and broadband coverage are both good across the campsite. There is also a washing up area.
And if you've pitched at Silly Moos over the Isle of Man TT race period, the campsite offers full breakfasts – just the job to set you up for the day.
The campsite's large barn provides a handy undercover area with kitchen facilities including a fridge, picnic benches and games such as table tennis, table football and mini pool.
Silly Moos Campsite is just off the A18 on Ballakillingan Farm. So when you're pitched here, why not discover the Maize Maze (the largest maze on the Isle of Man), meet the farm animals, feed the calves and see the cows being milked. There is also a giant cow slide, a Crazy Cow Obstacle Course, a free tractor safari and a peaceful picnic area.
Ramsey, the second largest town on the Isle of Man, is only a 10-minute drive from this campsite, making it a convenient place from which to explore the island – Douglas, the island's capital, is just a 20-minute drive to the south. And if you fancy leaving your car on site, there is a bus stop just outside the campsite.
Of course, one of the biggest events on the island every year is the Isle of Man TT race week. You might therefore be very pleased to learn that Silly Moos Campsite sits on the TT course at the 22-mile mark, opposite Lezayre Church. The campsite also offers undercover parking for motorbikes.
Explore the Isle of Man and its breathtaking coastline using Silly Moos Campsite as your base. At 32 miles long and 14 miles wide (at its widest point), there are around 221 square miles to discover on your camping and caravan holidays. There are lots of things to do on the Isle of Man. Ride the Manx Electric Railway, visit Castle Rushen near Castletown at the south of the island or Peel Castle on the west coast, go to the Manx Museum at Douglas or climb the Laxey Wheel. Do all this and much more on your camping holidays on the Isle of Man.
