The local area
From its unspoilt beaches to its beautiful and varied landscape, Tresco is both a relaxing and fascinating place to stay. The island is equally suited to those who wish to take life easy as it is to those seeking discovery and adventure. There are plenty of diverse activities from fishing and sailing to fine dining and being pampered in our spa.
Tresco is also home to the sub-tropical beauty of the world famous Abbey Garden – renowned for its extraordinary plants and its Valhalla collection of shipwrecked figureheads. Discover and enjoy its natural beauty.
Why not take to the seas for exploration and exhilaration or view the variety of interesting bird-life that can be found throughout the island?
The clarity of light on Tresco and the island's land and seascapes are an inspiration to artists from far and wide, some of whose work is showcased in the Tresco Gallery.
