Racket Town is all at once at the centre of everything and in a location completely of its own. It benefits from a prime position close to island amenities in a peaceful, secluded spot.
On entering the cottage, you’re immediately embraced by its homely feel. Cosy furnishings, whitewashed walls and a Fisher stove add to its traditional appearance. The lounge is spacious, and three large bedrooms are clustered together at the south-side of the property. The cottage itself is easily missed from the road that passes by, so enveloped as it is in garden space and lush green plant-life.
Those in need of a tranquil, restorative break will love Racket Town due to its unique location. It’s the perfect starting point for leisurely meanders through Tresco’s winding woodland paths. Although set apart from other cottages and buildings, it’s still under five minutes from Tresco Stores, the Island Office and the Flying Boat Bistro.
