When you arrive in the Scillies it feels like you have journeyed back in time. With azure seas, subtropical gardens and beaches of white glistening sand, these beautiful and peaceful islands lie just 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall. The five inhabited islands of St.Marys, Bryher, Tresco, St.Agnes and St.Martins, are set amongst hundreds of smaller islands, each one distinct with a unique mix of plants and wildlife. We are pleased to be returning to the Bell Rock Hotel, where we are assured of a warm welcome, comfortable accommodation and good food and service. Whilst on Scilly you can opt to do your own thing or join the excursions arranged by the Tour Manager.
