April Cottage Highlights
Discover your perfect place to stay this April for a last-minute spring staycation on Tresco...
From luxurious beachfront houses perfect for basking in the spring sunshine to cosy, characterful cottages overlooking the island's rolling pastures, our self-catering cottages make the perfect spring staycation for single households and bubbles.
Let the clear sea air blow away the winter cobwebs and discover great times together in the great outdoors on Tresco, where spring comes early and blends imperceptibly into an island summer...
Picture-perfect Dolphin House sits at the heart of a subtropical walled garden - a gorgeous and grand hideaway with plenty of space for larger families.
We're torn on our favourite feature... There are the jaw-dropping views towards the Eastern Isles from its elevated position. There's its location, right at the heart of the island, with The New Inn and Ruin Beach Cafe both within a few minutes' walk. Then there's that walled garden to explore or simply enjoy - it really has to be seen to be believed.
Available for 7 nights from Wednesday 21st April - £2,894 (Sleeps 10)
Sitting right on the waterfront at Old Grimsby, Lighthouse features light and airy living spaces, four individually-designed ensuite bedrooms and a cute and cosy snug, ith the interiors influenced and designed by Marina Dorrien-Smith.
Outside, there are landscaped gardens to the front and rear, with direct access to the white sands and watersports of Raven's Porth. This is a cottage with Tresco truly at its heart...
Available for 7 nights from Tuesday 20th April - £4,285 (Sleeps 10)
You couldn't stay closer to the water's edge if you tried... Throw open the curtains in the morning and gently prepare for the day ahead as you watch Tresco Channel and the islands come to life from your balcony or bed. At the other end of the day, the terrace is simply meant for evenings sipping a G&T as the sun sinks into the ocean behind the neighbouring island of Bryher. Coastal bliss.
Available for 7 nights from Tuesday 20th April - £2,930 (Sleeps 6)
Surely one of the quaintest places on Tresco, little whitewashed Dolphin Cottage sits at the heart of the island, nestled just behind the Church, overlooking Tresco's rolling pasture and surrounded by subtropical planting.
Available for 7 nights from Wednesday 28th April - £1,766 (Sleeps 6)
Converted from the former island mill, nowadays this characterful cottage provides a spacious pad for larger families with its sprawling open-plan ground floor and private walled garden.
Sail Loft enjoys gorgeous views across Tresco's Great Pool from the master bedroom, while its location moments from two outdoor pools, Farm Beach and the Bike Shed makes it the perfect base for those looking for an active getaway after a long winter.
Available for 7 nights from Thursday 29th April - £2,151 (Sleeps 8)
Lobster & Oyster
Twin neighbouring cottages, we love Lobster & Oyster for their edge-of-the-world feeling, with stunning, uninterrupted sea views across toward St Martin's and the Eastern Isles. On the other hand, if you fancy it, civilisation is right on the doorstep, with The Ruin Beach Cafe just a couple of minutes' walk away.
Each cottage is available for 7 nights from Saturday 24th April - £3,223 (Sleeps 8)
One of our Sea Garden Cottages, Samphire enjoys views across the subtropical planting and rolling lawn that leads down to the ocean's edge. Beyond Raven's Porth beach and Old Grimsby Quay, you'll spot the Old Blockhouse fort on the hilltop, keeping watch across the bay.
The open plan kitchen, dining room and sitting room enjoys beautiful views and is perfect for cooking up a family feast. Or, throw open the patio doors to a raised sun terrace and lawn, with sweeping vistas out to the horizon beyond - perfect for those first BBQs of the year.
Available for 7 nights from Saturday 24th April - £3,223 (Sleeps 8)
As its name suggests, this delightful character cottage is bounded on one side by the hill leading up to Borough Farm, but the golden sands of Green Porth are just a minute’s walk from the beach. Tucked away and perfectly private, a spacious garden and beautiful period features make this a firm favourite.
Available for 7 nights from Friday 30th April - £2,266 (Sleeps 6)
This whitewashed lookout with its quintessential cottage vibe enjoys a picturesque perch above New Grimsby, with far-reaching views towards Samson. There’s a separate annexe in the garden providing sanctuary for guests needing a little more privacy from the group – perfect for bubbles.
Available for 7 nights from Wednesday 28th April - £2,151 (Sleeps 8)
Walk out of the door and onto Raven’s Porth beach, or 30 seconds along the lane to The Ruin Beach Café. This spacious cottage features a stunning interior but its most spectacular feature (besides the sea views) must be its conservatory, perfect for sunny spring afternoons in the company of a good book.
Available for 7 nights from Friday 23rd April - £3,223 (Sleeps 8)
