The Cottage

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.

The Location

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 and bakes, light lunches and fresh smoothies daily.
