Isles of Scilly - The Yacht Inn, Penzance
The Yacht Inn offers a perfect staging post for travellers proceeding to, or returning from, the Isles of Scilly.
The quay from which The Scillionian departs is a simple two minute walk away, and The Yacht has seven affordable rooms for those seeking to take the 9.15am daily crossing to the sub-tropical archipelago.
A trip to the Isles of Scilly is a cherished experience. There are five inhabited islands – St Mary’s, Tresco, St Martin’s, Bryher and St Agnes plus countless uninhabited ones to explore. Each island has its distinct characteristics. Scilly also boasts an incredible ancient history and archaeology, alongside sweeping sea views and rugged undeveloped coasts. Out at sea, there are incredible shipwrecks and amazing wildlife.
The heritage of the Isles of Scilly revolves around the sea – fishing for lobsters, crabs and crayfish and racing traditional pilot gigs. Flower farming also thrives; Scilly’s scented narcissi are renowned the world over. The sea air, clean seas and mild weather provide the additional secret ingredients to local fare – including lobster, tender island-reared beef, freshest vegetables and melt-in-the mouth ice-creams.
Please enquire at The Yacht Inn if you are seeking a room, as we are often fully-booked.
