Dolphin House evokes the sense of a grand manor house, with its hilltop location further adding to this impression.
Dolphin House is a large old granite rectory, with spectacular views towards Round Island Lighthouse, set in large private walled garden.
Downstairs, a grand dining room, high-ceilinged living room and a cook’s kitchen combine to provide ample leisure space. The staircase ascends past a series of bedrooms including a little attic room, many enjoying views across Tresco’s rolling landscape and out to the sea.
The property is set amongst a walled garden - a veritable kempt jungle of texture and colour, begging for games of hide & seek or sunlit afternoons simply lazing.
Dolphin’s hillside spot is sandwiched between two of Tresco’s eateries - the New Inn pub serves a classic menu featuring fish & chips and burgers with an island twist, whereas the Ruin rustles up decadent pizzas and pasta dishes from its wood fired oven.

The garden - you could spend a week at the property and not need venture beyond the gates. Somehow we don’t think you will though!
