Encircled in gardens and perched on a hillside, Townshill’s fresh interiors and spacious rooms provide a relaxing base for an island escape.

The Cottage

A series of stone steps take you down from the road and through copious garden space towards the property. Wood floors throughout and light furnishings give it an airy feel. The ground floor boasts a cook’s kitchen with island, dining room, and a living room ensconced towards the back, all encircled by outdoor patio space. Upstairs, two bedrooms and a family bathroom line the front of the property, while the triple aspect ensuite master bedroom is the cherry on top.


The Location

Amble down the hill to the New Inn and enjoy a cold beer in its sunny beer garden – even better, take a glass down to the sea wall beyond and watch boats come and go as you sip away. Exit Townshill through the back garden gate and follow the track towards the rugged north end of the island – the terrain here is altogether different and features two ruined castles to explore.


Our Favourite Thing

The master bedroom and its ensuite bathroom both overlook New Grimsby and the Tresco channel.



Approximately 12 steps down into the front garden and one step up to the front door: Ground Floor; into large open plan kitchen with two small steps down into the dining area with door directly onto patio/BBQ area; door into lovely light lounge with large picture windows, patio doors and beautiful sea views. Door from dining area to hall with downstairs WC, back door to garden and two steps up into second TV room. First Floor; Stairs (14 steps) with good handrail to large triple aspect master bedroom with sea views and ensuite shower room, two further twin bedrooms with one step up to each and a family bathroom.
