Carron Farm's self catering accommodation is located on St Martin's, the third largest island in the Isles of Scilly - an archipelago of islands 28 miles south west of Land's End. We offer accommodation in 3 separate properties: the Chalet, Up-Idas, and Top Cottage. All three are in Highertown and have wonderful sea views, with the nearest beaches only a couple of minutes walk away. On a clear night, the stars are spectacular due to the lack of light pollution, there is no street lighting on St. Martin's, so on those nights when there is no moon a torch is an essential item to light your way back to your holiday let after that evening stroll! Other useful information:

The island shop and post office, St Martins Stores is conveniently located in Highertown, helping to provide all your food requirements for your holiday. An order sent in advance will ensure groceries at your accommodation on the day you arrive. The Island Bakery is also situated in Highertown supplying locally baked bread and cakes.
