The Cottage

Sandpiper’s quirky layout draws you through a light dining room and kitchen, with a snug lounge set off to the side capturing the best views of the Great Pool. It’s easy to imagine retiring to this area after a family dinner to enjoy a further glass of wine and plan tomorrow’s ventures.

The bedrooms are set at the back of the property in a private spot, with a collection of plants exploding into life outside the windows.

The Location

Aside from the closeness to Tresco Stores, the Bike Shop and both outdoor pools and indoor spa facilities, Sandpiper makes the most of Tresco’s rural highlights.

The path looping around the Great Pool makes a soothing walk amongst nature, and Tresco’s glorious Abbey Gardens are but a short cycle away.
