Tresco

Een eiland vol luxe, verfijndheid en de beroemde Abbey Garden 

Tresco is het op een na grootste eiland en mag met recht een subtropisch paradijs heten. Het is enige eiland dat tot privé-eigendom behoort. Op het moment zijn Lucy en Robert Dorrien-Smith de gelukkige eigenaars. 

Het eiland heeft van alles wat, van indrukwekkende rotspartijen, begraafplaatsen uit de bronstijd en romantische kasteelruïnes tot de wereldberoemde Tresco Abbey Garden, die in de jaren dertig van de negentiende eeuw door Augustus Smith is aangelegd. Deze paradijselijke tuin bevat in totaal ruim 20.000 soorten exotische planten van over de hele wereld. Veel van deze planten gedijen enkel op dit stukje Groot-Brittannië goed. De Valhalla-collectie is net zo indrukwekkend en bestaat uit kleurige boegbeelden van schepen die hier ten onder zijn gegaan. 

Het woeste noorden van het eiland leent zich uitstekend voor wandelingen en verkenningstochten. In het hart van het eiland liggen veel zoetwaterplassen met vogelkijkhutten met goed zicht op de vele vogels die er komen. U kunt het eiland met een huurfiets verkennen, maar ook een boot huren of gaan windsurfen of kajakken. Alle vaarbenodigdheden vindt u bij de Tresco Sailing Club. U kunt hier ook heerlijk schelpen zoeken of gewoon lekker zonnen op het strand. Het hagelwitte, haarfijne zand op de stranden bij de Pentle- en Appletree-baai voelt heerlijk aan. 

Wat u ook op Tresco gaat doen, u merkt al snel dat verfijndheid hier de klok slaat. Uw accommodatie is fantastisch, de kunstgalerieën uitstekend en de eetgelegenheden maken gretig gebruik van verrukkelijke lokaal geproduceerde ingrediënten. En dan hebben we het nog niet eens over de Flying Boat Club gehad, een bekroond kuuroord.
