The Cottage

Tucked off the main road, Sail Loft is decked in cheerful green wood-clad sections with a sprawling spacious ground floor. Step out onto the patio and a private walled garden from the open plan kitchen and dining space, or curl up with a book in the lounge and toast yourself by the log burner.

Upstairs houses the spacious master bedroom, while three further rooms throughout the cottage are decked out in soft pinks and maritime hues.

The Location

Despite being superbly central, Sail Loft retains its privacy due to being slightly set back from the road.

Positioned on the outer edge of Tresco’s main ‘village’ and en route to the Abbey Garden and its abundance of plant species, the cottage enjoys the best of everything.
