Tresco has a magic which is hard to beat. The New Inn, with its award-winning accommodation and food, just moments from the harbour, fits right in. Fresh from a major renovation, with sustainable design features throughout, there are now 16 all-new ensuite bedrooms (two with their own terrace). Each retain their unique charm but with a fresh new look, blending timeless nostalgia with modern comforts. Hues of plum and bracken cleverly accent the turquoise tongue-and-groove panelling, beds are topped with sumptuous Hypnos mattresses and hand-crafted bedside tables are home to Roberts Radios. The beautiful blinds are a bespoke colourway by Fermoie. The bathrooms have also been completely redone, with walk-in rain showers, fluffy robes and bespoke tiling. Downstairs, prop yourself up at the Driftwood Bar, gather in the wreck wood-lined snug, soak up the sea views on the terrace, or relax in the Pavilion with its wood-burning stove. The food is excellent here. Made using the best local produce, it’s British seasonal classics with a Tresco twist. Afterwards, explore the island – don’t miss Tresco Abbey Garden.
