Hugh Town, St Mary's, Isles of Scilly, England
The Fo'c'stle is a picture book 17th century Grade II listed double fronted granite cottage, centrally located in Hugh Town, with harbour views from all windows, fully modernised while retaining all of its original charm. It is opposite the Atlantic slipway leading onto Town Beach and is also 300 yards from Porthcressa beach.

The Isles of Scilly are one of the most beautiful and relaxing parts of the United Kingdom, home to less than 2000 people lying 28 miles from Lands End. Five of the islands are inhabited and there are over 100 smaller islands and islets. Each island has its own special charm and character, but all have in common fin...

Perfect location for getting to anywhere on St Mary's, and just minutes from the pier for a boat to everywhere else. Felt great to step out onto the street and find other visitors taking a photo of your photogenic cottage! Facilities and decor were perhaps slightly tired, and the dining room was a little gloomy, but these are trivial details....

This is a lovely cottage in an ideal location for visiting the other islands, being a hop and a skip to the harbour. The cottage facilities are good and everything very clean and welcoming.

We had a week of perfect weather which was the icing on the cake. Accommodation was as expected, comfortable and homely for 6 adults. There was plenty of all the necessary equipment needed to self cater. Although there is excellent food available in pubs and restaurants close to the front door.

About the neighbourhood
Some of the delights of a Scillonian holiday are the boat trips to off islands, to Bishop’s Rock lighthouse and the Western Isles for seals and birdlife, an evening boat safari to watch the seabirds coming in for the night, landing on one of the smaller islands having it to yourself for the day, hiring bicycles, pony trekking, swimming with the seals, a game of golf, the inter-island gig races on Wednesday and Friday evenings, slide shows and local dramatic society performances, visiting theatre groups from the mainland, walking along paths and trails far from man made sounds are to mention but a few. The Isles of Scilly Tourist Office (www.simplyscilly.com or 01720 424031) provides a wealth of information about the wide-ranging things there are to see and do, guaranteed to meet the inter... more
