Tropical gardens and white-sand beaches on an idyllic car-free island. It sounds like something from both a foreign land and a bygone era, but this is Tresco, one of the Isles of Scilly near Cornwall, right now. Next-door-neighbours Lobster and Oyster are bright and breezy three-bedroom cottages with a daisy-fresh New England feel. They’re part of the Tresco Sea Garden Cottages hotel, which means a stay here comes with full access to the hotel facilities, from the indoor pool and spa to the tennis courts and croquet lawn. Beyond that, this remarkable island is all yours to explore.

First Glance

  • Architecturally, the cottages are an easy-on-the-eye combo of solid Scillonian granite on the lower level and bright-white paintwork up top, with accents of turquoise on the window- and door- frames.
  • The ground floor is home to the main living area, including a cosy TV room, open-plan kitchen diner, family shower room and a cloakroom. French doors on both sides give a bucketful of light to the interiors, and mean that you can see the sea even when you’re sitting on the back garden patio. Top table, though, is the rounded wicker one, in the front patio on the sea-side of the cottages.
  • Underfloor heating and a log-burning fire make sure tootsies stay toasty even in the depths of winter.
  • The kitchen is fully equipped with crockery, cutlery and glassware, along with a handy range of appliances: cooker, microwave, fridge-freezer and dishwasher (phew).
  • The three bedrooms are upstairs, along with the well-appointed family bathroom.

Sleeping arrangements

  • The master bedroom has a super-king-size bed, and an ensuite bathroom with twin sinks mounted in marble counter-tops. From the bedroom, open the floor-to-ceiling glass doors to the balcony, and admire the view of tiny islands dotted around the bay.
  • In Lobster, the main bedroom has a sunny yellow theme, while in Oyster it’s a beachy blue. In both, there’s original artwork, oak floors, and Lloyd Loom wicker furniture.
  • The other bedrooms can be made up with double or twin beds, and the sofa bed can accommodate another two guests if required.

Key kit

  • Flatscreen TV.
  • DVD player.
  • iPod dock.
  • Board games.
  • Ren bath products.

Grounds

  • You have full access to the complex grounds and facilities, including the heated indoor pool, sheltered beach, sauna, Jacuzzi, gym, croquet lawn, sailing centre and tennis court (just ask to borrow racquets and balls).

Location

  • This is the tricky bit, and also part of the fun. You can fly into the neighbouring island of St Mary’s by taking the Skybus from Exeter, Newquay or Land’s End airports. Alternatively, take the Scillonian ferry from Penzance; it takes two-and-a-half to three hours. From St Mary’s, hop on a boat to Tresco, and take the tractor service to your cottage.
  • Once you’re there, car-free Tresco is yours to discover – hire bikes to pedal around the largely flat island, or stay on your own two feet with walks along the endless white-sand beaches.
  • Whatever you do, don’t miss the Tresco Abbey Garden – a tropical paradise with over 20,000 plants from all over the world. The entry fee is included with your stay.
