Serica at Glandore Apartments - St. Mary's

Self Catering | Sleeps 2

'Serica' is a comfortable, well-equipped 'bijou' apartment within our large, cream 1930s property, surrounded by nearly half an acre of private gardens, including a sunny patio with barbecue and a shaded ‘Library’ patio (so named because guests enjoy reading there!). Porthloo beach is only fifty yards from our gate and offers stunning views of the famous Scillonian sunsets.

Additional Information

‘Serica’ apartment  has a modern living room comprising a well equipped kitchen area, a dining table and chairs, and two comfortable armchairs offering stunning west-facing sea views. The bedroom has a 4ft 6" high base double bed with deep sprung mattress and memory foam top layer, and a smart modern ensuite shower and toilet with a view towards the harbour and Garrison.  Patio windows open from the bedroom onto a private sunny south facing balcony with table and chairs. All apartments are personally serviced by ourselves.

When you arrive, we will be on hand to greet you and show you personally around the apartment. The beds will all be made up and the table laid with flowers together with a welcome tray of tea/coffee and biscuits. The 'What's On' list and 'Things to Do' sheets giving you important information about Scilly during your stay will be on the table ready for you to peruse at your leisure.

We offer an advance grocery order option whereby you can send us a list of (mainly breakfast) items which will be waiting in your apartment for your arrival. You can take your time to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and delicious biscuits from the welcome tray while you relax and start your holiday.

We have been welcoming guests to Glandore Apartments for since 2000. As proprietors, we live on the premises and are committed to ensuring that our guests are as comfortable as possible. Glandore is your 'home from home' here on the beautiful Isles of Scilly and we hope you will enjoy the relaxing peace and quiet of our beachside apartments.

Changeover day(s)

Thursday is our change over day and early-arriving guests are welcome to leave their luggage at Glandore before going out for the rest of the day. We aim to have the apartments ready for new arrivals by 2pm but are often able to get them ready earlier than that. However, on extremely rare occasions, an apartment might not be ready until a little later. Guests are welcome to enjoy complimentary tea and coffee on our patio if the weather is nice or in our Gallery with its stunning sea views until the apartment is ready.
