Occupying an enviable location in Hugh Town, Lyonnesse is situated opposite Holgates Green, just yards from Town Beach and a short five minutes stroll to the harbour, local shops and restaurants. 

Following a long period as a successful guest house, Lyonnesse was sympathetically converted into five holiday apartments, each thoughtfully designed and furnished to a high standard to ensure you have a relaxing holiday in these beautiful islands. 

  Idas, our light, bright modern ground floor studio apartment, sleeps 2 and is the perfect bolthole for your Scilly stay. The change-over day for Idas is Tuesday. 

  Nornour is our lovely, characterful 1 double/twin bedroom ground floor apartment.  The attractive lounge enjoys beautiful views over Holgates Green and the double bedroom, enjoys an en-suite shower room.  Change-over day for Nornour is Saturday. 

  Bonnet, our superb first floor apartment makes the most of the houses’ beautiful proportions and is designed around maximising the splendid views from its 3 large front windows.  A two bedroom, two shower room apartment, perfect for friends to share or for a family. The change-over day for Bonnet is Saturday. 

  Islander, a quirky split-level, 1 bedroom apartment with high ceilings is situated at the back of the house and overlooks the pretty Catholic church gardens.  Islander sleeps 2-3, but has an internal door, allowing it to be linked to Slippen, providing accommodation for up to 5 people. The change-over day for Islander is Thursday. 

  Slippen, our gorgeous top floor holiday hideaway, is perfectly configured to maximise the views from the open plan living-dining area and bedroom windows. The change-over day for Slippen is Thursday.
