Day Trips to Tresco

Day Trips to Tresco

Whether you're coming from elsewhere on Scilly, or further afield in Devon or Cornwall, a day trip to Tresco is the perfect day out


Spectacular both inside and out, Nautilus is cocooned amongst a rocky outcrop on Tresco’s northeastern coast. Its luxurious interiors and views out onto the vast swirling Atlantic provide the best of both worlds.

The Cottage

Design and layout combine to make Nautilus a luxurious coastal haven – oak flooring, underfloor heating, original artwork and antique features all add to the immaculate finish of the cottage. The bedrooms are situated downstairs, encircled by outdoor decking which catches all angles of sunshine.

Upstairs boasts a glorious open-plan living space – relax in the enveloping sofas and devour mesmerising sea views through the picture windows.

The Location

The surrounding sea views evoke isolation, tranquillity and the impression of having the island all to oneself. However, if you need to rejoin civilisation there’s an indoor pool conveniently close-by.

If you can tear yourself away from lengthy sundown sessions on the balcony, head to the Ruin Beach Café, just a minute away, and enjoy a slightly different terrace view for supper.
