Christmas & New Year Cottage Breaks


The Christmas and New Year period is a time to spend with loved ones, and where better to celebrate than Tresco?

The festive season is a wonderful time on Tresco – a far cry from the hustle and bustle of the mainland. Enjoy a bracing clifftop walk, a soak in the spa, a board game in front of the log burner, or a meander through the Abbey Garden – the choice is yours.

With our flexible Christmas and New Year break, just let us know when you want to arrive, how long you want to stay, and how many of you there will be. We’ll sort the rest for your perfect festive escape – whether it’s a quiet couples retreat, a cosy family Christmas, a big celebration with friends, or anything in between.

You'll stay in our luxurious, seafront Flying Boat or Sea Garden cottages, with a log burning stove, wonderful sea views, original artwork throughout, satellite television and WiFi. You'll enjoy complimentary access to the Tresco Island Spa facilities and entry to Tresco Abbey Garden throughout your stay.

Stay over Christmas to enjoy our island candlelit carol service at St Nicholas Church and our traditional Christmas Day service. On the big day, dine in your cottage with goose, turkey or other choice cuts pre-ordered from Tresco Stores, sourced from Vivian Olds of St Just.

Or let someone else do the hard work and head to The New Inn for a traditional Christmas dinner and a glass full of good cheer!

Those joining us for our New Year celebrations can enjoy live music at The New Inn from Scillonian musicians The Steamband, with fancy dress and dancing into the wee hours of 2019.
