September Offer: Super September

Posted on: 2nd September 2013

Well, we’ve had a grand few weeks of sunshine and, it looks like summer is here to stay a while! We’ve been pretty busy through August – sorry about the lack of updates, we’ve been occupied making iced coffees and hunting down beach towels!

And September is heralding in another Indian summer! In order to make the most of it, we’ve joined several accommodation providers in teaming up with Isles of Scilly Travel and Tresco estates to provide you with our Super September offer:

20% off accommodation when booking a stay of 3 nights or more,

25% off outward flights from Land’s End, or

50% off return sailings from Penzance, and

20% discount on entry to the historical Abbey Gardens on Tresco

To take advantage of this offer, email us at or phone us on 01720 442440.

So if you fancy a tranquil week of sunshine, sunsets and seafood, why not give us a call? The offer is valid for all new bookings made for stays during September 2013. Don’t forget the suncream!
