Here’s the final part of our trip to the Isles of Scilly: Bryher
Day 3 arrived and whilst we were both sad to leave Tresco, we were excited to see what Bryher had to offer. Some may think that the islands that form the Isles of Scilly are all very similar. Well in actual fact, they are not. Each one has something different.
Bryher has two faces. On one side of the Island you can see its similarities to Tresco, tree lined, white sandy beaches, yet on the other side it’s barren, bold and rugged with steep cliffs and rough seas. We walked across the heather lined cliffs, which certainly awakened our senses. All in all it took us approximately 2.5 hours to walk the circumference of the Island; that’s including stopping by the little shops along the way and enjoying the homemade fudge we bought from Veronica Farm.
We stayed in the Hell Bay Hotel which was so lovely. Our hotel room was more like a mini apartment, which had its own balcony, facing out to sea.
Greeted with a bottle of champagne, the room felt so homely, and unlike most hotels I’ve visited. It was almost a home from home experience. I particularly loved the maritime themed interior which was supported throughout the hotel – blues, stripes, and other country colours!
As if the environment wasn’t enough to send you into a state of deep relaxation, there’s also a pool, jacuzzi and spa facilites for those looking for the ultimate relaxation. For those foodies, the menu (which includes locally sourced Lobster) is also perfection and the service you receive is tip-top.
If you are thinking about visting the Isles of Scilly, make sure you make it over to Bryher and the Hell Bay Hotel, you won’t be disappointed!
