Welcome to Evergreen Cottage
Enjoy your stay on the Isles of Scilly in a Grade II listed 300-year-old cottage combining character with modern comforts. After a day exploring St. Mary's or visiting the 'Off Islands', relax in our comfortable guest lounge with an extensive range of books, or simply enjoy our pretty garden where you can unwind and watch the world go by surrounded by sub Tropical plants and flowers.
All our bedrooms are en-suite, with televisions, DVD players, radio alarm docks, hair dryers and hot drink making facilities. We are renowned for our friendly, homely atmosphere and we offer a wide range of choice for breakfast, with vegetarians an special diets welcomed. Boatman Alec Hicks calls into "Evergreen" over breakfast to inform our guests of the boat trip to the 'off islands' for that day.
Evergreen could not be better placed opposite "The Park" and Town Hall and within a stones throw of the pubs and restaurants. The quay is only a minutes' walk from where the passenger boats leave for the 'off islands' and the many other interesting trips on offer to see the Bishop Rock Lighthouse, seals, puffins and numerous other species of birds and who knows what! Dolphins, sharks and whales perhaps.
The climate is mild with the average temperature varying by only 9°C between summer and winter hence the sub tropical flora and fauna, which cannot flourish in mainland Britain yet only 28 miles from Land's End.
One visit to Scilly and you will understand why these are known as 'The Fortunate Islands'
