10th - 16th April 2022

 

Just 28 miles off the southwest tip of Britain, lies the small, beautiful archipelago of the Isles of Scilly … a charismatic destination with unique charm and warmth: with mile after mile of white sandy beaches, acres of natural landscape to explore, a rich and fascinating history. The skies seem bigger here, the horizons further away, and the landscape broader. It all feels quite intimate and old-fashioned, as if you’ve stumbled upon an idyllic film set from a bygone era. Let the concerns of everyday life drift away on the falling tide. This is the stuff that holiday memories are made of: beautiful surroundings, a gentler pace of life, quiet conversation and nature’s soundtrack.

Your Hotel: The Bell Rock Hotel is perfectly situated in St. Mary’s on Church Street; a quiet part of town, it is

very convenient for the two beaches and the shops of High Town. The hotel offers comfort and elegance, the highest standard of service and a pleasant friendly atmosphere. It boasts a super dining room, delightful bar, lounge and an indoor swimming pool. All bedrooms offer comfortable accommodation with en-suite facilities. The hotel has no lift.
