Additional Information

Shearwater is an attractive, Grade-II Listed property, forming part of what is arguably the finest terrace of stone-built houses on the islands. Ideally situated, overlooking Hugh Town’s central “park”, Shearwater is equidistant from the popular Porthcressa and Town beaches, and within a short walk of the harbour, shops, banks, pubs, restaurants and many other amenities the town offers.

Reputedly the home of a Scillonian Sea Captain in years gone by, Shearwater was run successfully as a guest house for many years, and is tastefully decorated throughout in a nautical theme. For 2017, it is offered for the first time as a self-catering property for up to 10 guests - perfectly for large family groups and clubs. 

All bedrooms have TVs and independently controlled electric wall heaters. Bathrooms are finished to the same style throughout the guest accommodation, having ceramic tiled floors, fully-tiled walls in a tasteful pale grey colour with decorative border, quality sanitary fittings, high-pressure thermostatic showers, chrome heated towel rails and attractive lighting. 

There is one ground floor bedroom, and four further bedrooms on the first floor.

The kitchen is well fitted having white baseunits with black granite-effect worksurfaces. There is a new electric range cooker twin ovens - perfect for large groups! Other appliances include microwave oven, grill, fridge and freezer, washing machine and dishwasher.

To the rear of the property is a sunny courtyard garden, with a rear access leading out onto Porthcressa Beach, just a few yards away.
