Cottages near Great Porth


Pounded by Atlantic waves on one side, yet blessed with calm sandy beaches on the other, Bryher is a rugged yet deeply beautiful island – the perfect place to enjoy a taste of untamed Scilly.


It is the smallest of the inhabited islands (around 80 people are lucky enough to call it home) and is cross-crossed by tracks and dotted with stalls selling fresh produce. Explore its rocky coves, laze on its sandy beaches or hike up one of its small granite hills for some of the best views on the islands.

Its fame has spread far and wide: the luxurious Hell Bay hotel has won many an award, while Jamie Oliver voted the diminutive Fraggle Rock Bar “Best British Boozer”.
