Located just off the coast of Cornwall these are five beautiful islands will leave you wanting more, each with its own personality they offer a family holiday in the UK like no other. There are lots of rocky islets and smaller islands too creating the perfect home to numerous species of marine animals and birds.
Getting to the islands is where your holiday experience really begins. Whether you travel by small plane or ferry your approach is likely to take your breath away. It’s not surprising the Isle of Scilly made it into the International Traveller’s 100 Ultimate Travel Experiences of a Lifetime.
This is a new location for Holiday Tots and we are very excited to have Tresco, the luxury private island retreat as our first Isle of Scilly destination.
Tresco Island is the second largest island of the Scilly Isles located off the south coast of Cornwall. It is perfect for a luxury family holiday and is the only island in the Scilly isles that is privately-owned.
It has a little bit of everything from castle ruins, where the children can imagine training dragons and meeting wizards, to secluded sandy beaches for days of sand castling and also rugged coastline. The world famous Tresco Abbey Garden hosts a spectacular collection of more than 20,000 exotic plants from around the globe. There are freshwater pools, boats and kayaks to borrow, bikes to hire and island hopping excursions too.

The Flying boat cottages are beachfront cottages and can sleep up to ten people and the Sea Garden Cottages, also have a beach front location with one to three bedrooms they can sleep from a couple and baby through to ten people.
