Overview - Property ref TRFB4
What a magical Island – a real paradise for the kids, Tresco is a car fee zone so perfect for the little ones to run free and enjoy the family holiday without the worry. The Island is less than 30 miles off the coast of Cornwall and is only 2 ½ miles long. It is Britain’s largest privately owned Island and the quality of service is fantastic. You will find luxurious accommodation, amazing food, excellent facilities and the most amazing views from your cottage. You will be forgiven for thinking you are abroad with the clear blue seas and sandy beaches on your doorstep.
The Island is perfectly located to be a fantastic base to explore the other Islands of Scilly with the inter-island boat service. Go off and explore and have an adventure!
There is so much to do on the Island if you wish to stay put. The sandy beaches in themselves will provide hours of entertainment for the little ones. The Greenland and woodland are right on your doorstep too so cycle rides and walks are lovely. Enjoy a stroll to visit the 2 castles dating back to the 19th Century or over to Abbey Gardens, the world famous sub-tropical gardens housing species unseen elsewhere in the UK. The garden house has 30 figureheads from ship wrecks from the last 200 years to see and there is also an art gallery on the island – a bit of history and culture on your family holiday.
If you’d like to take part in a bit more activity you can hire a bike or even borrow a boat, windsurf or kayak from the sailing club. The bike shop also hires tag-alongs, stabilisers, helmets etc.. so you will be all set for an adventure.
After all the exploring you may want to spend a bit of time in the Flying Boat Spa – its leisure facilities will ensure you have a peaceful and relaxing time. Choose from a dip in the indoor heated pool or a Jacuzzi or maybe a sauna and gym session. The tennis courts are also available and you can hire all the equipment you need. You also have access to the golf course (on St Marys Island) – all included in your stay of course.
In the food store and delicatessen you will find a range of baby items so you don’t need to worry about forgetting anything from home. You will be able to purchase nappies, baby wipes and food as well as suncream and your everyday branded cereals etc.. The delicatessen has an in house bakery and sells amazing croissants and local pastries, as well as numerous local cheeses and a wide range of wines. If you fancy eating in but without the hassle, you can arrange for a chefs dine in option – fantastic food ready prepared for you to pop in the oven and enjoy in the comfort of your own home.
However eating out is a real treat so you don’t want to miss out on the culinary delights of the Ruin café, Flying boat restaurant and New Inn pub. All of the eateries have a great atmosphere and are suitable to eat with children. The restaurant is open 3 times a week for evening meals and mainly serving light lunches, snacks and drinks daily. The Surf and Turf is something to look out for, a real special on the menu with local Island produce – amazing!
The New Inn pub has regular live music and fantastic food. The pub has been awarded 4 yellow stars and a Gold Star Award from The AA for quality and service and an AA rosette for food excellence, its well worth a visit and you won’t be disappointed.
The café is open daily from mid-March to early November for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. We don’t think you can beat the buffet breakfast whilst on the terrace watching the kids playing on the beach, or an afternoon glass of bubbly watching the sunset – totally amazing views and fantastic memories to be made on this beautiful Island.
