The Cottage

Barn Flat’s elevated position results in fantastic views from all angles; all three bedrooms look out across fields and green space to catch shimmering glimpses of the Tresco channel, while the living space draws you through to picture windows with immersive views across the pool. Step outside onto the balcony and get lost amongst island nature.

The outdoor space is split in two, with a small lawn space bordering the front door, ideal for sun worshippers. A few metres away is a separate patio enveloped in colourful blooms throughout the spring and summer – here you’ll find your outdoor dining space.

Our Favourite Thing

The view from the balcony – truly soothing.
