Carron Farm - Up-Idas Cottage - St. Martin's
Carron Farm's Up-Idas , is a traditional granite cottage located at Signal Row in Highertown on St. Martin's, with spectacular views to the uninhabited Eastern Isles and the white sandy beach of Highertown Par. The comfortable and well equipped cottage has its own garden.We live close by so are on hand to help make your holiday a memorable one.
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.
Mobile phone coverage is available in most areas on St Martin's.
Vodafone, Orange and O2 provide the best service; if you subscribe to T-Mobile or Virgin and can't pick up a signal, there's always the pay phone just up the road - possibly one of the last working red telephone boxes in the country.
