The Isles of Scilly
Staying at The Bell Rock Hotel
7 DAYS | 3rd May 2020
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 have 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.
