Cowrie is a second floor holiday apartment in Hugh Town, St Mary’s which is only a stones throw from two beautiful beaches and a five minute walk to the harbour. It is on the top floor of a traditional granite building with stunning, panoramic views over the harbour and other islands beyond. The apartment sleeps six in a double and two twin rooms (one of which can also be a superking) and also has space to accommodate a travel cot, which we supply.

We welcome families with children of all ages but also cater for romantic getaways, with champagne glasses and a locally sourced selection of breakfast goodies for an added touch of luxury.

As local owners we know how special Scilly is, so we have taken the time to fully renovate Cowrie to provide excellent accommodation in a stunning setting. Visit our website, www.scillyholidaylet.com or look on our facebook page www.facebook.com/scillyholidaylet for more pictures and further details. 

All linen and towels are provided for your stay, including beach towels on request. If you have little ones (or big ones!) then make use of our beach combing buckets and nets to find hidden treasure, or simply enjoy sitting by the window and watching the world go by. Our kitchen is fully equipped and we provide toddler bowls and plates as well as a high chair and toddler toys. There is also a range of books and board games available for cosy nights in.

We have a few weeks still available in 2019, as well as availability through the winter months, please do get in touch if you would like to stay at Cowrie!
