We would like you to feel that Glandore is your 'home from home' here on the beautiful Isles of Scilly and that you would look forward to returning to the relaxing peace and quiet of our beachside apartments again and again. 'Golden Eagle' itself is a comfortable, well-equipped apartment within our large cream 1930s property with terracotta tiled roof. It offers a modern fully-equipped kitchen with dining table. The large modern lounge has French windows opening out onto a spacious balcony with table and chairs and stunning sea views to the west across to Samson, Bryher and Tresco. Up the stairs, you enter a roomy lobby from which open two bedrooms and bathroom with bath, over bath shower and toilet. Bedroom one is a large bedroom with ziplink bed offering a 6ft superking double or two 3ft singles. Bedroom Two is a single bedroom offering a 3ft single bed. All apartments are personally serviced by ourselves. When you arrive, we will be on hand to greet you and show you personally around the apartment. The beds will all be made up and the table laid with flowers together with a welcome tray of tea/coffee and biscuits. The 'What's On' list and 'Things to Do' sheets giving you important information about Scilly during your stay will be on the table ready for you to peruse at your leisure. As an extra service, we offer an advance grocery order option whereby you can send us a list of (mainly breakfast) items which will be waiting in your apartment for your arrival. So there will be no need to go shopping as soon as you arrive. You can take your time to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and delicious biscuits from the welcome tray while you relax and start your holiday. PLEASE NOTE: This apartment is on the second and third floors of the property which means there is an outdoor flight of concrete steps to the main entrance hall, an indoor flight of stairs from the first floor to the main door of the apartment on the second floor, and a third flight ot stairs from the living room/kitchen on the second floor up to the bedrooms on the third floor. For this reason, the apartment is not suitable for guests of reduced mobility who find climbing stairs difficult.More

About the neighbourhood
Glandore Apartments comprise three separate self catering units (Serica, Slippen and Golden Eagle) and are situated in a favoured location at Porthloo (or Porthlow) on the west shore of St. Marys with views across the sea towards Samson, Bryher and Tresco. Porthloo itself is little more than a hamlet of about a dozen houses, mainly surrounding Porthloo Green and facing the sea. The area is about fifteen minutes leisurely walk along the scenic beach path from Hugh Town. On the way, you pass Porthmellon Beach which is one of the most popular family beaches because of its wide expanse of sand and gently sloping beach giving safe paddling and bathing. Porthloo is also home to the spectacular and scenic 9 hole St Marys Golf Club which sits in a commanding position at the top of the hill, overlooking St Marys Harbour and Hugh Town.
How to get there
Visitors have two choices for travel to the Isles of Scilly. There are scheduled air services (Isles of Scilly Skybus) connecting the islands with Lands End Airport, Newquay Airport and Exeter Airport or, alternatively, the passenger ferry, RMV Scillonian III, which connects the islands with Penzance in Cornwall. (Please note that the Scillonian is ONLY a passenger ferry - there are no regular facilities for bringing visiting cars to the islands) Flights from Lands End to St Marys take about 15 minutes, from Newquay about 35 minutes and from Exeter about 50 minutes. Two types of aircraft are operated by the Isles of Scilly Skybus. One is the de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter seating about 19 passengers and the other is the Britten-Norman Islander seating up to 9 passengers. While Newq...
