Mincarlo - St. Mary's
Mincarlo is set in a fantastic location in a quiet corner of the bay, with magnificent views across the harbour and out to sea. Light, airy rooms; relaxed, laid-back feel and direct access down to the beach from the front terrace garden. Great breakfasts with locally sourced ingredients; environmentally friendly business. We now also offer evening meals.
A traditional yet modern, third generation, family-run B&B. Great waterfront location very convenient for shops, tourist information, pubs & restaurants and the quay for boat trips/gig racing.
Breakfast is an extensive buffet (mostly organic & home-made), and full menu cooked to order with Cornish home-cured bacon, sausage & hogs pudding. On Sundays we serve freshly-baked croissants and pains-au-chocolat.
With organic fair-trade linen, duck & goose down bedding, Welsh woollen blankets, hot water bottles and radio but no TV, our bedrooms are a real escape. All rooms are en-suite (two with baths). Fresh local milk in dining-room fridge for tea & coffee.
The terrace garden overlooks the harbour (where there is always something to see); guests are welcome to use this space for picnics, take-aways or a lazy bottle of wine. The spacious lounge has a good selection of books and local information (also TV if there is something you simply can't miss).
Beach towels and buckets & spades are readily available. We welcome families of all ages, with no charge for children under 2yrs - cots on request.
The large number of bedrooms also makes Mincarlo an appropriate venue for group bookings.
Nick & Bryony offer guided trail-running, open-water swimming including island to island passages, private swimming lessons in pool or open water, and yoga in classes or one-to-one.
We are committed to good environmental practice and offer discounted room rates if you travel by Scillonian/coach/train.
The constantly changing sunsets seen from the house and its grounds can be breathtaking and are often a perfect end to the day.
Open from March to October.
