October the autumn haven
Book an October visit to Tresco and experience the crisp air, orange hues and cosy nights on offer...
The days are getting shorter, there is an autumn breeze in the air, and the island is full of orange and brown hues: October is the beginning of hibernation and hunkering down.
Tresco makes for the perfect autumnal haven. October days can be filled with strolls along the beach in the crisp air, tranquil afternoons in the sauna at the Tresco Island Spa, and hot chocolates in a cosy corner of the New Inn. Meanwhile, early evenings can be spent with a glass of red wine and a seasonal novel beside the warm glow of the fire.
With glimpses of sunshine on offer as well as drama from the elements, it is hard not to be inspired by the Tresco landscape at this time of year.
Find out for yourself by booking a stay at one of the cottages below...
The perfect traditional cottage for October, Seaspray is a cosy haven nestled between green fields and dirt tracks. Greenporth beach is but a stone's throw away and is the perfect beach for beachcombing or an autumn picnic. What's more the ruin is but a meander along the seafront.
Boasting instant access to the beach, Baywatch is a Tresco gem that brings the outside in. Whether curled up by the fire or sat in the garden on a milder day, the dramatic October seas and skies will make this the perfect autumn getaway.
The ideal October retreat is at your fingertips with Oyster. Gaze out at the waves as they crash over the rocks towards Round Island Lighthouse and St Martin's, and seek refuge from dark evenings in the Sea Garden pool and sauna.
Whether to the East or West of the island, amidst the trees and hills or on the beachfront, Tresco has the October getaway for you.
There is a quieter atmosphere, yet the New Inn becomes more alive than ever with warming drinks (of both the alcoholic and non-alcoholic variety!) and Sunday roasts making for an enhanced feeling of community.
The spa is the perfect place for a spot of relaxation and the gallery is home to some incredible pieces that mirror the island's dramatic autumn scenery.
With cosy corners, warming log burner and splendid views, North End is the ideal spot for hunkering down with a book and a hot chocolate. The North End itself is around the corner and both the West and East of the island are ready for you to explore.
With views over Old Grimsby Harbour and St Martin's in the distance, Rockpool is the perfect autumn escape. Watch the sunrise first thing or bask in the afternoon October glow.
A traditional cottage with views of New Grimsby Harbour, Coastguards is a stunning spot for an October get away. Located on the edge of the north end, the wild and windy cliffs are ready to be explored. At the same time, you can escape to the peaceful pub and hunker down for an evening.
