Tresco Islandshare

Enjoy 40 years of holidays on Tresco as more than just a visitor...

Over four decades ago, we first developed the concept of enabling those who love Tresco to become more than just guests; they can become owners of their own piece of Tresco. We call this offering Islandshare.

Since its inception, more the 3,500 families have become owners of their very own week in their favourite cottage on Tresco.

Islandshare offers you the chance to return to Tresco and share this special place year after year; indeed many Islandshares are passed down from generation to generation. Our cottages sleep from two to ten people, and with weeks available throughout the season, you can come at the time of year that suits you.

Whether it is the unbeatable views from a Flying Boat cottage, the unparalleled luxury of a Sea Garden cottage, or the seclusion and charm of a traditional cottage, whatever makes your stay on Tresco special is what makes your Islandshare your own.

Islandshare is not simply an investment in a cottage; it is access to over 800 acres of private island paradise. As an Islandshare owner you will enjoy use of all the island leisure facilities, complimentary entry to the world famous Tresco Abbey Garden and access to one of the most beautifully-located golf courses in the country on St Marys.


Islandshare Availability

A limited number of cottages and weeks are available for 40-year Islandshare ownership (to view available properties, download from the link on the left). Our cottages sleep from two to ten people, with a choice between traditional island homes and more contemporary beachfront properties.
