Located opposite the Museum in Church Street, the flats are close to the shops, pubs, restaurants, and quay. The house was originally built for a member of the famous, Scillonian, ship-building family of Edwards, in the 1830’s. Taken on in 1993, and subsequently converted, Roger & Kathy now offer three self-catering flats equipped to a high standard. A fourth, studio flat, with its own small garden, is also available, on ground level and accessed from Buzza Street.
Midships – created from the first floor rooms, provides a separate bedroom for two, with en suite shower, large lounge/kitchen/diningroom. The high ceilings and large windows add spaciousness to the flat. Thursday change-over day.
On entering the flat there is a small lobby with doors which lead to either the front room, bedroom or toilet.

On the left is a modern kitchen/diner with built in electric oven, microwave, ceramic hob, fridge, washer/dryer, drop leaf dining table and chairs. There is a kettle and toaster. An iron and ironing board are also provided.
Separated from the kitchen by an arch is the lounge which has a three seat settee and cushions and a coffee table. In the corner is a 23” flat-screen television with Freesat-plus box, and a DVD player. CD’s can be played on the music centre. The two large windows overlook the small garden and Church Street.
