The Cottage

Bedrooms are dotted throughout the property, with two downstairs and two further up. On the ground floor a spacious kitchen diner is well-equipped for preparing tasty local suppers. The lounge is set atop a mezzanine, with patio doors and picture windows allowing the surrounding views to flood into the space.

Outside, a patio-terrace leads to a set of wooden steps onto the beach below.

Our Favourite Thing

A sunset barbecue on the terrace is a holiday must.

On the Doorstep

An outdoor pool is just across the road from Puffin, and the island's Spa, Tresco Stores, and the Flying Boat Cafe & Deli are all nearby.


Our cottages are well-equipped with a comprehensive inventory, which includes kitchen appliances and equipment, bathrobes, hair dryers, and an outdoor BBQ with tools. Bathrooms come complete with 100 Acres shampoo, body wash and hand soap.

This property comes equipped with a dishwasher. There is no washing machine at the property, however laundry facilities are available centrally with a small cost payable per load.

Well appointed and had everything we needed. Loved being able to see and watch our children on the beach from the garden.
