This Flying Boat cottage enjoys a glorious seashore terrace and its own set of steps right down onto the beach.
Inside, vibrant interiors complement the surrounding maritime scenes, and original art and oak flooring add to the welcoming space. Downstairs, a stretch of living space ends with a spacious lounge opening onto the terrace outside.
Upstairs three bedrooms provide plenty of space for downtime. The master boasts its own ensuite and a balcony overlooking New Grimsby harbour.
Aside from its prime spot atop the beach, Friendship is close to the island’s spa, Tresco Stores, and the Bike Shop. Its central spot makes it a convenient bolthole for those wanting to be in the centre of island activity.
Also on the doorstep is the relaxed Flying Boat, serving pastries, light lunches and fresh smoothies daily, and pop-up suppers throughout the week.

Flying Boat Cottage
You couldn't sleep closer to the ocean if you tried.
Perched proudly atop Farm Beach, these New England style cottages enjoy expansive views across the harbour toward Bishop Rock lighthouse, Bryher's Shipman Head and Cromwell's Castle. Many even have direct access to the safe and sandy beach below. Taking their name from the World War I seaplane base that made this sandy perch their home, today, these beachfront pads are among the islands' finest accommodation.
Situated at the heart of the village, you'll enjoy access to the neighbouring Tresco Island Spa and tennis courts throughout your stay. The Abbey Garden is also yours to explore, just a 20-minute stroll away, or why not head to St Mary's for a round of Gold on surely England's most picturesque course?
The Flying Boat Cottages have been rated Five Star Gold Award by Visit England.
