Owned and cared for the the Dorrien-Smith family, Tresco boasts unspoilt sandy beaches, clear azure waters and world class accommodation.
With a rich and varied landscape, the island enjoys everything from dramatic rocky outcrops to secluded white sand beaches and, of course, the world-famous Tresco Abbey Garden.
You can reach Tresco by fixed-wing plane from Devon or Cornwall or by boat from Penzance, and from spring 2020 we're reintroducing helicopter flights direct to the island from Penzance Heliport.
The Abbey Garden
Tresco's temperate climate permits exotic plant-life to thrive year-round - this glorious exception is epitomised by the Abbey Garden, which is home to over 4000 species from across the globe.
Built in the 19th century around the ruins of a Benedictine Abbey, the botanical collection has grown over the years and includes greenery from Brazil, New Zealand, Burma, South Africa, and the Mediterranean.
Rare species include the King Protea and the handsome Lobster Claw, great blue spires of Echium, brilliant Furcraea, Strelitzia and shocking-pink drifts of Pelargonium.
Your Island Escape
Our island accommodation ranges from stunning beachfront cottages to our cosy island inn.
Get together with family and friends in a luxurious Sea Garden Cottage sleeping up to ten people with far reaching views across to uninhabited islands and the Round Island Lighthouse, or cosy down in one of our traditional granite cottages dotted across the island.
The Best of Tresco
Aside from the Abbey Garden, there's plenty more to discover on our tiny island.
With three eateries to enjoy, a luxurious spa, an art gallery housed in a converted gig shed, and a well-stocked island stores and deli, you'll be spoilt for choice as to how to spend your Tresco days.
