September Accommodation Highlights

Experience Scilly’s secret summer with a week in one of our cottages. Our properties range from luxury beachfront houses great for basking in autumn sun to cosy hidden cottages, welcoming and characterful.

Take in all the charms of an island September, when warm, balmy days roll into earlier dusks and log burner-fuelled evenings. Explore the undulating banks of Tresco’s east coast, criss-crossed with interwoven paths and clusters of rust-coloured ferns.

Traverse country lanes collecting blackberries from the hedgerows. Wrap yourself in a blanket on the Ruin terrace and savour a late-afternoon hot chocolate. The choice is yours.

Find your perfect base from which to take in these autumnal joys.


Flying Boat Cottages

Perfect for: Catching September sunsets.

These beachfront houses enjoy a prime position overlooking the Tresco channel – snatch moments of solitude on the sun terrace while watching the transfixing glimmers on the surface of the sea.

With spacious, modern kitchens you’ll have everything you need to rustle up a hearty Sunday roast or a lazy brunch. Watch the tide rise and fall from the master bed, or leave the curtains open at night to catch a glimpse of the relentlessly starry sky.

With the Tresco Island Spa just steps from the cottage door, a dose of calm is never far away. Or make the most of this flavoursome month with an evening at the nearby Flying Boat – for ultimate indulgence try the six-course tasting menu, available on Thursdays throughout September (booking essential).

Available cottages:

  • Fearless - from Tuesday 17th September
  • Gem - from Saturday 21st & 28th September


Sea Garden Cottages

Perfect for: having an indoor pool on your doorstep.

Spanning a sheltered cove at Old Grimsby, the Sea Garden cottages vary in layout and size. Each cottage features bespoke artwork, solid oak heated flooring, and luxurious furnishings. Tiptoe across to the nearby indoor pool, sauna and Jacuzzi to warm up on a blustery autumn day – the pool is at its best after dark when the changing lights illuminate the water in a series of different colours.

Take in a different side of the island with a coastal walk towards Gimble Porth, past towering rhododendron bushes, and along the rocky formations lining Tresco’s northern peninsula. Or relax on the Ruin Beach Café terrace with a good book, with far-reaching views towards uninhabited islets as your only distraction.

Available cottages:

  • Seagrass - from Tuesday 24th September


Borough Farm Cottages

Perfect for: escaping it all in a rural idyll.

Soak up the island’s rugged charm with a stay in one of our Borough properties – from cosy two bedroom chalets to spacious Borough Farmhouse, you’ll be settled amongst tranquil woodlands and overlooking rolling fields and azure seas.

Well-suited to those with a passion for rambling, spend afternoons getting lost on winding country paths and discovering secret corners of the island. For shell-seekers, the alluring Blockhouse, Borough, and Pentle beaches are not far away.

Available cottages:

  • Tean - from Wednesday 25th September


Traditional Cottages

Perfect for: glorious gardens and unique island views.

Nothing says autumn like a cosy cottage stay, and there are plenty to choose from on Tresco. Perhaps you’re looking to observe the first hints of migrating birds on the Great Pool from the bedroom windows of Old Mill, or seeking a beachside bolthole like School House.

You might like Thatch cottage, which neighbours our beautiful island church, or Greenside, within striking distance of the Ruin Beach Café and its sun-soaked terrace.
