Truly a sub-tropical paradise, this tiny corner of England has remained unpolluted, unspoilt and unchanged for decades. Tresco lies just 28 miles from the Cornish coast yet basks in a balmy climate where spring comes early, autumn stays late and winter hardly exists at all. The wonderful Abbey Gardens is home to more than 3,000 species and magnificent vistas, colours and scents. There is certainly no other garden like this in the world. Even in winter there are 300 plants in flower in the Abbey Gardens and as each day lengthens more and more exotic flowers appear. In the spring you will see flowers here that are weeks ahead of those on the mainland, the perfect way to lift your spirits after a cold, dark winter. Autumn, too, is a stunning time to visit, with the beautiful golden, reds and ambers of the seasonal foliage against a backdrop of proteas, aloes and flowering camellias thrown in for good measure.

The New Inn

Our accommodation on Tresco will be at the popular 4-star ETB/AA graded New Inn. There is a friendly bustling atmosphere here and all rooms are en-suite and are comfortably furnished. There is also a separate residents’ bar and lounge, and guests have complimentary access to the Tresco Spa & Leisure facilities. Just four days here will leave you feeling renewed and revitalised!

We now offer Tresco as an all-year-round, go-as-you please package, where the content and duration can be adjusted to suit your needs. See below for a sample itinerary.
