Encircled in gardens and perched on a hillside, Townshill’s fresh interiors and spacious rooms provide a relaxing base for an island escape.
At A Glance
ViewRural views with glimpses of the Tresco Channel.
A series of stone steps take you down from the road and through copious garden space towards the property. Wood floors throughout and light furnishings give it an airy feel. The ground floor boasts a cook’s kitchen with island, dining room, and a living room ensconced towards the back, all encircled by outdoor patio space.
Upstairs, two bedrooms and a family bathroom line the front of the property, while the triple aspect ensuite master bedroom might be our favourite spot.

On the Doorstep
The New Inn pub is just a short stroll away, as is Gallery Tresco and New Grimsby quay.
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.
It’s still the best cottage on the island! Well appointed, roomy, large garden, stunning views, private, detached, close to all amenities yet still tranquil.
Amble down the hill to the New Inn and enjoy a cold beer in its sunny beer garden – even better, take a glass down to the sea wall beyond and watch boats come and go as you sip away.
Exit Townshill through the back garden gate and follow the track towards the rugged north end of the island – the terrain here is altogether different and features two ruined castles to explore.
