Old Mill

Grand and spacious, Old Mill is best identified by its towering chimney, once part of a working mill. It’s close to island amenities and just a stone’s throw from the beach.

The Cottage

Sat amongst a large, private lawn, Old Mill is centrally located and simultaneously private and secluded. A family-friendly lounge with double doors to the garden and a light, airy kitchen and dining space occupy the ground floor.

Ascend the staircase to three bedrooms and a family bathroom. A further staircase leads to the epic master bedroom, with triple aspect windows overlooking the Great Pool and Tresco channel, and high ceilings housing historic features of the working mill.

Our Favourite Thing

The master bedroom – the three differing views, all uniquely captivating, combined with historical relics makes this a truly special place to rest your head.
