The Crow's Nest is set in a fantastic location with fabulous sea views. It is an apartment on the first floor of what was originally a Smuggler's/Fisherman's Inn , then a large guest house which was subsequently converted into good quality self-catering apartments.

The accommodation is furnished to a good quality throughout and sleeps two in a spacious double bedroom. There is a modern shower room and comfortable open-plan lounge/diner with a modern, well-equipped kitchen from which overlooks Town beach, the harbour and the lifeboat at anchor.

Situated on The Thorofare, a quiet lane running almost parallel to the main street in Hugh Town, Crow's Nest is within a few minutes level walking distance to most island amenities including shops, pubs and restaurants. The quay is nearby for all your boating requirements and there are several local beaches easy to access. All in all, Crow's Nest provides an ideal base for those wishing to explore the best the islands have to offer.
