Mythical whispers and echoes of the islands’ smuggling past surround this traditional cottage. Spend days on the rolling dunes of Tresco’s gorgeous east coast, and evenings ensconced within the sturdy granite walls of the cottage.

The Cottage

Cocooned within a cluster of woodland, Smugglers is a peaceful, secluded retreat. Its traditional décor and quintessential cottage feel will suit those who remember childhood holidays on Tresco. As night falls, stoke up the log fire and relax in the snug lounge.

Smugglers has ample garden space, with an enclosed lawn ideal for playful family afternoons, and a courtyard garden hidden behind the property.


The Location

Trek the rolling dunes above Blockhouse, Borough, and Pentle beaches – there are plenty of benches en route for stopping and admiring the views.

Blockhouse Castle will soon become a favourite haunt – just a short scramble away, providing an incredible panorama from Tresco’s northern tip across St. Martin’s, the Eastern Isles, and St. Mary’s.


Our Favourite Thing

The ‘secret’ gateway from the back of the garden, through the trees, and out onto the banks beyond. Discovering this sea view will blow you away.
