Isles of Scilly
The Isles of Scilly are an archipelago either a 3 hour boat ride away or 15 minutes by plane. The islands are covered in heathland, and fringed by sandy beaches such as Great Bay on St. Martin’s. On Tresco, one of the 5 inhabited islands, Tresco Abbey Garden is home to subtropical plants and also the Valhalla Museum, displaying shipwrecked figureheads. The tower of 17th-century Cromwell’s Castle stands at the north of Tresco. The yacht inn is located a 2 minute walk away from the docks making it the perfect stay over before adventuring to the islands.
St Micheal’s Mount
St Michael’s Mount is a small tidal island in Mount’s Bay, which you can view from The Yacht Inn. The island is a civil parish and is linked to the town of Marazion by a man-made causeway of granite setts, you can walk on the causeway to St Micheals at low-tide or at other times there is a local ferryman to help with the crossing. There are sub-tropical gardens surrounding the castle for those that love the fresh air or guided historical tours for the more culture loving travellers.
