Christmas & New Year on Tresco

Enjoy a magical Christmas or New Year holiday together on the Isles of Scilly, staying in our beautiful beachfront cottages or cosy island inn here on Tresco...

The festive season is a wonderful time on Tresco – the tradition and beauty of an Isles of Scilly Christmas a far cry from the hustle and bustle of the mainland.

Enjoy a bracing clifftop walk, a soak in the spa, a board game in front of the log burner, or a meander through the colourful blooms of the Abbey Garden in winter.

Enjoy our island candlelit carol service and traditional Christmas Day service at St Nicholas Church, or live music from The Steamband - Scilly's longest-running band - to see in 2020.

Stay in a cosy self-catering cottage, or enjoy the hospitality at The New Inn. Find out more below...
