This spacious traditional cottage enjoys a hilltop position between Tresco’s two harbours, and is set amongst a sheltered private garden.

The Cottage

The entrance to Nurses takes the form of a glorious sun room, home to the dining table – a special spot for lingering dinners watching the evening sky become midnight blue. The sun room opens out onto a generous kitchen, with a snug living room tucked away in the centre of the house. Opposite wings of the property respectively house a single bedroom and family bathroom, and an ensuite master bedroom plus bunk room.


The Location

The property is a short stumble from the New Inn after a few late afternoon pints. A leisurely stroll in the opposite direction takes you through pretty Dolphin Town, past St. Nicholas church and onto the Ruin Beach Café, whose sun-drenched terrace and bountiful sharing platters are waiting to welcome you.


Our Favourite Thing

For the most soothing start to the day, try taking your morning coffee to the farm gate opposite Nurses and marvel at the spectacle of Tresco sunrise skies.
