November Cottage Highlights

November on Tresco is a beautiful time of transition, as the magical light and tranquillity of late autumn give way to the first signs of an island winter...

If the day dawns bright, perhaps it's time for mindful meanders through rust-toned bracken and along peaceful woodland paths. Late autumn on Scilly is a little milder than the mainland - perfect for making the most of the unique quality of light as you stroll along a deserted shoreline as the sun sets.

On the other hand, you could witness one of the first Atlantic storms of the season - heralding the first signs of winter on the island. In that case, head for the wild north end; you'll feel the breakers against the cliffs before you see them. Wave watching desires satiated, head for a few lazy lengths in the spa, a warming hot chocolate at The Ruin, or back to your cottage to cosy up under a blanket in front of the log burner.

Find your perfect base to witness the tranquillity and transition of November on Tresco...

What's Open in the winter?

This November, The Ruin is open for lunch and dinner in place of The New Inn, which is undergoing a full refurbishment this winter. The Flying Boat Café & Deli and the Garden Café are open until 13th November.

Tresco Island Spa, the Sea Garden Pool, Tresco Stores and the Abbey Garden are open throughout the winter.


Perfect for: watching the ebb and flow of the tide

Phoenix is perched above the white sands of Farm Beach, its terrace perfect for making the most of those surprisingly warm days that remain a feature of a Tresco autumn. Watch the coming and going of boats in the channel, the ebb and flow of the tide, and the constant cycle of the changeable autumn weather, before falling asleep to the soothing flash of the distant Bishop Rock lighthouse.

Phoenix is available from Tuesday 26th October for 7 nights for £2,343 sleeping up to 6 people.


Perfect for: island adventures from your doorstep

Also located on the island's eastern edge, both the Ruin Beach Café and the spa facilities are within easy reach. The master bedroom balcony enjoys evocative views across the dunes of Green Porth, with the Old Blockhouse crowning the distant promontory, urging you out for autumnal island adventures.

Shoreline is available from Thursday 4th November for 7 nights for £1,735 sleeping up to 6 people

Sail Loft

Perfect for: watching an ever-changing autumn scene

Historically a working mill, nowadays this characterful cottage provides the perfect base for larger groups wanting to explore the island in the late autumn. The double windows in the master bedroom capture captivating views of Tresco’s Great Pool – get back to nature as you birdwatch from the bedroom.

Sail Loft is available from Thursday 4th November for 7 nights for £1,694 sleeping up to 8 people


Perfect for: the best of both worlds

Within moments of leaving your front door, you'll be enjoying rugged coastal walks past beautiful Gimble Porth across the heathland towards two of Tresco’s castle ruins. Or, take a short stroll down the path in the opposite direction and discover decadent dinners at the seafront Ruin Beach Cafe or the warming embrace of the Sea Garden pool.
