Our timeshare programme was launched over 30 years ago, giving guests the opportunity to select a particular week in their chosen cottage and return to it annually for 30 years.

Since inception, more than 1,500 families have bought an average of two weeks on this beautiful island. Often, timeshares are bought and passed down from one generation to the next. As a Tresco timeshare owner, you are a valued guest who has made a long-term commitment to being part of our island community. Everyone on the Estate is dedicated to ensuring your stay here is happy and relaxing, year after year.

Our unique guarantee

Timeshares are bought with the peace of mind of the island’s unique buy-back guarantee. The Tresco Island Estate guarantees to buy your timeshare back any time after ten years and before twenty years for the full purchase price, without any deductions. Please refer to the separate price and availability list for the up-front cost for each available week, as well as the annual service charge. Moreover, the Tresco Estate is happy to extend older timeshare agreements back to 30 years at any time.


A limited number of cottages and weeks are available for timeshare ownership; to view our Timeshare Availability download from the link on the left. Our cottages sleep from two to 10 people and you are able to choose from traditional island cottages and more contemporary beach-front properties. All the island’s timeshare properties are beautifully furnished, contain original artworks and have WiFi connectivity and satellite television. All our cottages are uniquely designed and have varying configurations. A number of houses have ground floor bedrooms.
