Tregarthen's, St Mary's, Isles of Scilly
Tregarthen's is perfectly positioned on St Mary's - the largest of the five inhabited islands of the archipelago - located yards from the historic quay, overlooking the harbour and boasting panoramic vistas across to the islands of Bryher, Sampson, Tresco and St Martin's. With its individually styled bedrooms, large light-filled conservatory, local food and drink offering and plenty of outdoor seating, it's hard to imagine a more comfortable base from which to explore the islands. Steeped in fascinating history, the main hotel entrance takes you onto the Garrison Hill where you can explore the ancient fortifications. There are also six self-catering holiday cottages at the water's edge, along with five lodges, situated right in front of the sea wall - perfectly positioned to enjoy your freshly prepared breakfast hamper!
The circular walk from the Garrison walls takes you south of the island via the sandy stretch of Porthcressa Beach and the striking rock formations of Pendennis Head.
The hotel is just around the corner from Hugh Street, where you'll find St Mary's bustling shopping district.
By plane: Skybus flights to St Mary's from Newquay (30 minutes), Exeter (1 hour) or Lands End (15 minutes). The hotel is a 5-minute drive from the airport.
By boat: the Scillionian III Passenger Ferry departs from Penzance (2 hours 45 minutes). The hotel is a 5-minute walk from the terminal.
