“A comfortable week in a beautiful place”

Very central holiday cottage in Hugh Town, well situated to get back to the quay for boat trips, etc. We arrived on the Scillonian, must admit we're usually OK at sea, but on this day probably 80% of the boat was feeling 'under the weather'. My wife was fine and I'll never hear the end of that!! We explored the island by bike and by electric buggy, we had brought our bikes which proved to be useful .... the best beaches, etc., were 15-20 minutes away. The main problem with the cottage was the TV, it did not have a roof aerial and every passer by interfered with the picture and this road going down to the quay is very busy ... basically it is the place everyone goes, either for the Scillonian or other trips.

Many thanks for this review. We hope to have the TV aerial sorted out by 2013. The problem in the past has been gusty Atlantic winds

“The holiday cottage of ones dreams”
Reviewed 3 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Three generations of the Hennessy Family had a most enjoyable self-catering holiday at The Fo'c'stle. The cottage is delightful - plenty of space (single beds for the children not the dreaded bunk beds), very well equiped,extremely comfortable and also close to all amenities.
