Additional Information

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 also 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 and yoga in classes or one-to-one. see www.adventurescilly.co.uk

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.
