Beautiful Rural Setting
Stand outside the Country House on a bright summer’s night and you can see millions of stars in a clear sky. And by day, the Isles of Scilly are like no place else in England with their empty roads and gentle pace of life.
Our self-catering units, Watermil are Bar Point, are both situated in the rural heart of St. Mary’s, referred to by the Islanders as up-country, an oasis of peace and calm and a world apart from the demands of life on the mainland.
You can see gentle farmland in every direction from both properties, yet they are still only a short walk from several beautiful Island beaches, famed for their white-sand and crystal clear waters. For example, Watermill Bay is just a ten minute walk away, or take a longer stroll down to Pelistry Beach or Bar Point.
One of the best ways to see the island is to hire bikes and cycle everywhere, stopping off at other beautiful beaches where you can idle away the day swimming or snorkelling in the turquoise sea, building sand castles and rock-pooling, then enjoying a barbecue on the beach as the day glides into evening. The Country House is the perfect place for a proper family holiday. A place where you can inhale clear unpolluted air, relax, unwind and spend precious time together.
