Late season breaks on Scilly
Get away from it all for a late season break in Scilly. Autumn brings with it great wildlife and bird spotting opportunities, the best sunsets and fabulous bracing walks. (And sometimes an Indian summer!) Enjoy the tail end of Taste of Scilly which runs to the end of September, the tiny but perfectly-formed St. Martin's Film Festival 5th - 8th October and then the wonderful Walk Scilly Weekend 12th - 16th October, with 19 themed and guided walks - the best way to discover all our islands in just four days.
Throughout the winter, you can really hunker down in our little island oasis in the Atlantic. Live like a local and explore Scilly in its many differing lights... 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 long coastal walks and cosy evenings in the pubs. Our skies are dramatically dark too, so an excellent location for a spot of stargazing.
You can also visit Scilly's flower farms from the end of September through to March 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. Take a look below at the number of hotels, self-catering accommodation and B&Bs that are open throughout the year. You can fly to Scilly year-round from Land's End or Newquay with Isles of Scilly Travel.
