Winter Holidays On The Isles of Scilly
Winters on Tresco are an intimate affair – the island’s population shrinks back to its core and it’s possible to traverse from coast to coast without seeing a single soul. Tresco’s rugged winter landscape awaits exploration, and it feels all the more magical having this private island to yourself.
Here are three ways to discover Tresco this winter:
Winter Breaks at the New Inn
Tresco’s welcoming island pub, the New Inn, is the ideal spot to retire to after blustery wanderings along the island’s charming coastline. With a cosy residents’ lounge full of inviting armchairs and warmed by a log burner, you might be tempted to forget the afternoon’s excursions and settle in with a good book instead.
You’ll stay four nights in a comfortable room enjoying both dinner and breakfast daily – feast on hearty servings of tender pork belly with seasonal veg or tasty catch of the day, and afterwards, while away the eve in the Driftwood Bar enjoying a pint or two with the locals.

Celebrate an Island Christmas
Christmas on the island is relaxing and wholesome. Last-minute shopping equates to a stroll around our well-stocked island stores on Christmas Eve, glass of sherry in hand, sampling nibbles from our deli counter. On Christmas Day, pop to the New Inn and raise a glass amongst our island community, before holing up in your cottage for Christmas dinner, present opening, and family festivities.
The exotic Abbey Garden is a worthy setting of your Boxing Day walk, as are Tresco’s white sand beaches (don’t forget your wellies!). Choose to stay in a luxurious cottage, or if you’d like to be well looked-after, the New Inn is the place to be.

Winter Escapes – Flying Boat Cottages
Where better to marvel at the wilds of an island winter than cocooned within a stylish beachfront property? The Flying Boat cottages boast a picturesque perch above the sand, overlooking the channel between Tresco and neighbouring island Bryher.
With the Tresco Island Spa on the doorstep, and Tresco Stores and its well-stocked bakery and deli just a few steps away, you won’t have to venture far from the cottage for a rejuvenating island escape. For the more adventurous, coastal walks and wave-watching will really get the adrenalin pumping.
