The Cottage

The entrance to Nurses takes the form of a glorious sun room, home to the dining table – a special spot for lingering dinners watching the evening sky become midnight blue. The sun room opens out onto a generous kitchen, with a snug living room tucked away in the centre of the house.

Opposite wings of the property respectively house a single bedroom and family bathroom, and an ensuite master bedroom plus bunk room.

Our Favourite Thing

For the most soothing start to the day, try taking your morning coffee to the farm gate opposite Nurses and marvel at the spectacle of Tresco sunrise skies.
