Pre-season breaks on Scilly

Get away from it all and beat those winter blues with a pre-season, early Spring break in Scilly. Throughout winter and early Spring, we get often get spectacular seas as huge waves roll in off the Atlantic, combined with stunning cold (but not too cold), calm quiet days - just perfect for winter exploring and seeing Scilly in many differing lights.

You can also visit Scilly's flower farms - always busy in winter - and enjoy the wonderful aromas of scented narcissi grown in tiny fields across the islands. They're hand-picked, graded and packed all the way through to early March.

So come and embrace the close-knit community and island life. Enjoy brisk and breezy walks, feast on cosy pub meals, and tap along to the local bands. And at night, marvel at our dramatically dark skies, or listen to the wild Atlantic rollers as they beast the western shores.

Take a look below at the number of hotels, self-catering accommodation and B&Bs that are open throughout winter and into early Spring. You can fly to Scilly year-round from Land's End or Newquay with Isles of Scilly Travel.
