The Isles of Scilly (Extra day this year)
Staying at The Bell Rock Hotel
8 DAYS | 16th April 2019
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 there is mile after mile of white sandy beaches, acres of natural landscape to explore, and 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, it is 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 andnature’s soundtrack.

We are pleased to offer a short break to Gloucestershire and to Highgrove.

With the help and advice of notable individuals and the dedicated assistance of the garden staff, what was oncea somewhat bleak landscape is now one of the most creatively inspired gardens of today. A series of interlinked areas, each with their own character and purpose weave magically around the garden, with the house always visible in the distance.
