“Brilliant in every respect”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at the Fo'c's'tle for a week at the end of August and had a truly marvellous time. This was a family holiday for myself, my wife and our two teenage children, and we all enjoyed it immensely. The house was spotless on our arrival, the accommodation is more than adequate for a family with a lovely lounge, comfortable bedrooms, a well appointed kitchen and bathroom with all the fitments anybody would need. It's position could not be more convenient, situated as it is in the middle of Hughtown with the Atlantic Hotel slipway directly opposite and the Mermaid and the quay only a few yards away. Splendid! I highly recommend it to all.

“Quaint, quirky and very well equipped! Great for families.”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Perfectly situated, minutes from the quay, the co op and the Atlantic Inn. Lots of space for all the family to spend together in one room or to spread out and do their own thing. A very modern kitchen area and useful utility space together with the old world charm granite dining room, lounge and bedrooms. Lots of hot water inside and cold Atlantic sea to cool off in just opposite.
A little noisy on the weekend due to central position but other than that just great.

“Our annual holiday destination”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have been holidaying on the Isles of Scilly for many years and always stay at the Fo'c'stle. When we first visited we had three generations staying at the cottage - now there are just the two of us and although we don't need all the space we still choose to stay at the Fo'c'stle. The cottage is very comfortable and very well equipped. The location is excellent: it is close to the shops and the various restaurants and it is only a short walk to the quay which is handy for visiting the other islands.

“Fantastic Location”
Reviewed 21 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Good ferry journey over from Penzance, then a very short walk to the rental (2mins). When we arrived we were met by Christie for the handover, who was the most friendly person you could ask for, a very smooth and easy handover. The property is perfectly located in Hugh Town with shops, pubs, restaurants and the boat key minutes away, which we found very useful when hopping to the other islands, also the daily excursions board is opposite the property which made it easy to see what was happening each day.
A great property in a great location, a would definitely go back.
