Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Up there with one of the best holidays we've ever had in a delightful place to stay!
Newfort House is perfectly placed to enjoy the best of both the town and the island. It is beautifully appointed and we would certainly go back there. It was recommended by friends to both us and others we know, with quite a number of us giving it a try, with all giving it a glowing reference. Within a few minutes walk there is a varied choice of excellent places to both eat and drink, whilst enjoying the beautiful scenery. Give Tanglewood a go for a meal and the tapas restaurant was also very good. Great walks, 'Caribbean' type beaches and with other islands to visit, there's just more of the same. Wonderful!

Superb, outstanding, the best place I’ve stayed on Scillys!
What a beautiful cottage, expertly finished and reminiscent of high end London hotels. So cosy and comfortable, it was a real pleasure. I’ve been visiting the Scillys since 1984 and it’s by far and away the best accommodation I’ve stayed in. Can’t wait to get back next year.

Pampered.
We loved our week at Newfort House. Views from the rooms upstairs across the bay stunning. (Loo with a view!) Beaches almost on the doorstep and excellent restaurant - Julliettes - just up the road. Although the owners were living next door we never felt they intruded, but were always attentive, helpful and friendly . Would have loved to stay longer and hope to return.

Perfect holiday rental property
Newfort House is a well appointed, comfortable holiday accommodation, located ideally on St Mary's, close to the shore/beaches, on the northern fringe of Hugh Town. The well thought out equipment, fine detail of the furnishings, spacious rooms and it not looking at all tired, means you feel truly cosseted and it lives up to the title of "luxury" self catering.

Perfect stay
This property is very special. It is beautifully appointed as seen in the photos and is in a great location with a choice of empty beach a few strides to the left or right from the front door. The dog loved it and hid behind the house when we were leaving; we would have done the same but I don't think next week's guests would have appreciated squatters. Any next accommodation for us has a lot to live up to because Newfort House has set the bar.

very comfortable house - great location
we have just spent a week here, our first visit to the Scilly Isles. Fortunately a friend recommended Newfort House and it did not disappoint. It is in a wonderful location, and has been refurbished and renovated to a high spec. We had two very wet days, but felt so at home and relaxed even they were enjoyable. The outside space is also good. we definitely hope to return.

About the neighbourhood
Newfort House is on the bay of Hugh Town and close to Harry's Walls a 15th Century Fort, from which the old stones were used to build the house. It is set between two quiet beaches. Hugh Town is the central hub with its cluster of shops, banks, churches, post office, cafés, galleries, restaurants and pubs as well as the wonderful museum. It has three lovely beaches in very close proximity – Porthcressa with a children’s play area close by; Town Beach, a perfect spot to watch the comings and goings on the Quay; and Porthmellon 1 minute from Newfort House hosts the Sailing Centre.
Getting around
One of the most enjoyable things to do on the Isles of Scilly is to hop onto a 'tripper' boat and go explore. It's the best way to get a real flavour of island life. All the islands are really close together - just a 20 minute or so boat ride - so it's perfectly feasible to stay on St Mary's for your entire holiday and visit all the others whilst you are here. Once landed on an off-island, it's generally a case of walking your way around the stunning coastlines, stopping by galleries and honestly stalls, but essentially marvelling at the incredible views and natural beauty of it all.
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
Arriving in the Isles of Scilly by boat from Penzance after a 2 hour 45 minute mini-cruise is wonderful. As soon as you set sail aboard the Scillonian III, you’ll already sense the gentler pace of life; your journey allows you time to relax. The voyage also gives you a stunning seaside view of Cornwall’s quaint villages, the world-renowned open air Minack Theatre and the Land’s End peninsula. The Scillonian III runs between March and October six days a week, seven in high season. By Air there are three departure points from the mainland – Exeter Airport which is 60-minute flight (March to October), Newquay Cornwall Airport which takes 30 minutes, and Land’s End which is just a 15-minute hop to the islands.
