The Cottage

Daydreams of shipwrecks and island adventures will flood your imagination while staying at cosy Cliff. This coastal cottage would make an apt boathole for a salty seadog, with its quirky layout and ocean outlook.

Downstairs an open-plan lounge and diner lead to an elevated galley kitchen and bathroom - the kitchen door opens to a veritable jungle in the garden home to assorted greenery. Also tucked away is a homely twin room.

Upstairs two bedrooms and a bathroom overlook the harbour - awaken to the wash of waves each day.

Our Favourite Thing

Barbecues on the terrace soaking up the view.

The Location

With Cliff's seafront spot, it would make an apt guardian of the Tresco channel. The garden enjoys epic sea views but is simultaneously tucked away behind a hedge for privacy. Nearby, the Flying Boat will become your favourite breakfast spot, best followed up by a spa session next door.
