The Cottage

Tucked away amongst our Abbey Farm cottages, Snipe consists of an open-plan kitchen and living space, and a light double bedroom set on a mezzanine above the lounge. The bedroom window frames the captivating scene of the Great Pool and its surrounding reedbeds.

A sunny terrace enjoys the same view, ideal for late lunches and peaceful moments.

The Location

Close by, you’ll find one of the island’s outdoor pools - awaken with a few lengths or find extra space to soak up the sun. Venture a little further and you’ll come across the Island Office, Tresco Stores and the Flying Boat cafe-deli.

The world-famous Abbey Garden is around a fifteen-minute walk from the cottage - while away the hours discovering its shady terraces and varied plant-life.
