The Cottage

Downstairs, you’re welcomed into an open plan lounge / dining room - expect to spend evenings here gathered close to the logburner, or clustered around the dining table to tuck into a feast of island produce. The kitchen is tucked away a little further into the property.

Upstairs are three bedrooms, and outside is a pretty stretch of private garden, hidden at the back of the property. Lawn and patio are surrounded by unusual greenery thriving in this exotic location.

The Location

Ivy occupies a convenient spot, with short walks in opposite directions to our eateries. Choose from pizza, pasta and sharing platters at the Ruin or fish & chips and Tresco burgers at the New Inn. Or venture a little further to the Flying Boat for a slice of island wellness with a vibrant salad and smoothie.

The closest beach, gorgeous Green Porth, is just five minutes away.
