The Isles of Scilly are the Lyonesse of Arthurian legend, blessed with the most gentle climate in Britain. They are outstandingly beautiful and totally unspoilt.
St. Martins is renowned for its long stretches of fine, sandy beach and the gentle wildness of its downs.
Just offshore, the Eastern Isles offer excellent bird and seal watching and snorkellers are given the opportunity to swim with the playful Atlatic grey seals.

From the Isles of Scilly, Land’s End is just within sight but you feel as remote from life on the mainland
as you would in any other exotic destination.
St Martin's, an island of sea, sand, sun and unrivalled beauty, is one of the five inhabited islands and has the palm trees and sandy beaches to make Crusoe feel at home.
From St Martin's you can easily visit the other off-islands, each with its very different charm, or St Mary's: the hub of the busier side of life in the islands.
As one of the most exclusive destinations, available accommodation on the Isles is limited, not least because our visitors
return year after year, often for generations.
Please visit us and you will understand. Once smitten……
