The Milntown Estate is 15 acres of beautiful gardens and woodland which surround the mansion house. 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 was 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. It is possible to stay as a guest and there is a restaurant.
Regular events are held in the house and grounds. The gardens are open to the public for a small fee. There are also two mobility scooters which may be hired.
