Escapist heaven in the Scillies that's anything but Hell

Hell Bay? Actually it’s more like a little Eden. Hell Bay clings to Bryher, a verdant sliver of land in the Scilly Isles overlooking an ocean that doesn’t stop till it reaches America.

Full breakfast is served until 9:30am.

Bryher, Isles of Scilly TR23 0PR


Bryher is a car-free island – you'll need to leave your wheels on the mainland.


Penzance station – 30 miles away on the mainland. First Great Western (tel 0845 601 0573) sells combined rail/helicopter tickets to the Scillies via Penzance.




St Mary’s – five miles.


Guests are met at St Mary's and whisked over to Bryher on Cyclone, a jet boat that covers the three-mile journey in about seven adrenalin-filled minutes.

You can fly to the isle of Tresco by helicopter (www.islesofscillyhelicopter.com) from Penzance, or by plane direct from Newquay and other regional UK airports. The tractor-bus will collect you at Tresco for your boat ride to Bryher. Alternatively, the Scillonian III sails between Penzance and St Mary’s on Tresco in 2.5 hours.
