Discover the UK destination that’s like nowhere else in England and make your escape to the Isles of Scilly in 2017

Isle of Scilly Travel and Visit Isles of Scilly have teamed up with St Mary’s Hall Hotel to offer one lucky winner and their companion a three-night stay at this elegant townhouse hotel on the island of St Mary’s, along with return Skybus flights for two adults from either Exeter, Newquay or Land’s End Airport.

The Isles of Scilly, nestled 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall, are outstandingly beautiful, uncrowded and unspoilt. Everything looks and feels quite different here, and life moves at an easier pace.

St Mary’s Hall Hotel is situated on the edge of Hugh Town, St Mary’s, minutes from sandy beaches and a short walk from the quay. Set within its own Mediterranean-style garden, the hotel has 26 rooms, a bar and a restaurant, Sprit, which serves fresh, seasonal food from an imaginative menu, with locally-produced ingredients and rare-breed meat from the hotel’s own home farm. Start your day with a homemade breakfast, made using fresh, locally sourced produce, before setting off to explore all Scilly has to offer.

St Mary’s is the main island but is still a world away from the hustle and bustle of mainland Britain. Totalling just six square miles, it boasts some of the finest beaches in the UK as well as colourful, sub tropical plant life, rare birds and breath taking sea views from a number spectacular vantage points. Immerse yourself in the rich island history or set out to explore St Mary’s on foot or by bike and enjoy the heightened creativity of island life through painting, photography or crafts.

Island hop by boat and you might catch sight of basking sharks, seals, dolphins and sea birds. Basking in the mildest climate in the UK, the islands are magical, peaceful and unforgettable. Offering life’s simplest pleasures, many come to beachcomb on the deserted beaches, picnic on the sand, soak up the sunsets and gaze at star filled skies. And everyone can savour fresh seafood in beachside cafes or local ale at a traditional pub.

You’ll enjoy breathtaking views of this unique archipelago as you soar over the Cornish coast on your Skybus flight, which takes less than an hour to reach Scilly from Exeter, half an hour from Newquay or an all-too-brief 15 minutes from Land’s End.
