The accommodation which sleeps six, comprises three bedrooms, sitting room, dining room, kitchen and ground floor bathroom with bath and shower cubicle and separate w.c. The front bedroom faces the sea and has a super-king ziplink bed which can be converted into two single beds on request. The back bedroom, ideally for children, due to required access to the third bedroom, overlooks the garden. A staircase from this room leads to the third bed...10 The Strand is a 200 year old listed fisherman’s cottage, situated on the sea front with spectacular, uninterrupted views across St. Mary’s harbour to the lovely neighbouring islands of Samson, Bryher and Tresco.

About the neighbourhood
The Scilly's are quite a unique group of Islands, some inhabited, some not, all with beautiful sandy beaches and lots of wildlife and seascapes.
Getting around
The Island has only six miles of road, so, for the most part, visitors prefer to walk. There is bicycle hire available, as well as Golf buggies for the days that it all seems a little too far. The cottage is also well located for the quay, which can be seen from the window, this is where all of the off-Island pleasure boats leave from and return to daily, making the cottage ideal for getting around.
