Carntop Guest House - St. Mary's
A modern Guest House, located on the outskirts of Hugh Town, the “capital” of St Marys. A five minute walk from the town centre, and a few minutes further to the quay, where daily boats leave for the off-islands. Also a few minutes from Old Town, or Peninnis headland and lighthouse.
Nick and Angela pride themselves on offering excellent home cooked food, using top quality, simple ingredients, and offer dinner four nights a week. Nick grows his own new potatoes, and vegetables including purple sprouting broccoli, broad beans, runner beans, French beans and courgettes, aiming to serve them whenever possible. Angela’s speciality is soft fruit, growing raspberries, gooseberries, loganberries and blackcurrants, and using them in her home-made desserts and jams. They also have a large greenhouse at the bottom of the garden, where Angela grows salad leaves, and of course tomatoes for breakfast.
Nick also owns a registered fishing boat, the” Curlew”, which his Grandfather had built in 1948. He works 200 pots for Lobster and Crab, nets for Grey Mullet, and catches Pollack on hand lines. He aims to serve his own caught fish and shellfish to guests as often as possible. A few lucky guests each year also get a chance to try freshly cooked prawns, caught with a push net at low water, on a big spring tide.
Three beautifully appointed en suite bedrooms contain all the extras expected in a four star silver guest house.
Open all year.
