This property is very special. It is beautifully appointed as seen in the photos and is in a great location with a choice of empty beach a few strides to the left or right from the front door. The dog loved it and hid behind the house when we were leaving; we would have done the same but I don't...

we have just spent a week here, our first visit to the Scilly Isles. Fortunately a friend recommended Newfort House and it did not disappoint. It is in a wonderful location, and has been refurbished and renovated to a high spec. We had two very wet days, but felt so at home and relaxed even they were enjoyable. The outside...

About the neighbourhood
Newfort House is on the bay of Hugh Town and close to Harry's Walls a 15th Century Fort, from which the old stones were used to build the house. It is set between two quiet beaches. Hugh Town is the central hub with its cluster of shops, banks, churches, post office, cafés, galleries, restaurants and pubs as well as the wonderful museum. It has three lovely beaches in very close proximity – Porthcressa with a children’s play area close by; Town Beach, a perfect spot to watch the comings and goings on the Quay; and Porthmellon 1 minute from Newfort House hosts the Sailing Centre.
Getting around
One of the most enjoyable things to do on the Isles of Scilly is to hop onto a 'tripper' boat and go explore. It's the best way to get a real flavour of island life. All the islands are really close together - just a 20 minute or so boat ride - so it's perfectly feasible to stay on St Mary's for your entire holiday and visit all the others whilst you are here.
Once landed on an off-island, it's generally a case of walking your way around the stunning coastlines, stopping by galleries and honestly stalls, but essentially marvelling at the incredible views and natural beauty of it all.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: St Mary's: 3.0 km
Railway: Penzance: 70.0 km
Ferry: Hugh Town: 4.0 km
Arriving in the Isles of Scilly by boat from Penzance after a 2 hour 45 minute mini-cruise is wonderful. As soon as you set sail aboard the Scillonian III, you’ll already sense the gentler pace of life; your journey allows you time to relax. The voyage also gives you a stunning seaside view of Cornwall’s quaint villages, the world-renowned open air Minack Theatre and the Land’s End peninsula. The Scillonian III runs between March and November six days a week, seven in high season. By Air there are three departure points from the mainland – Exeter Airport which is 60-minute flight (March to October), Newquay Cornwall Airport which takes 30 minutes, and Land’s End which is just a 15-minute hop to the islands.
