Well Lane Cottage is one of the oldest cottages on St. Mary’s, dating back to the 17th century and, even though it was recently completely refurbished, retains much of its original charm including old wooden beams (taken from wrecked ships) and the original well (now safely covered over). There is a well-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher and microwave, a dining area (with solid fuel stove) which looks over the garden, dresser and sofa. The sitting room has a TV/DVD player, CD player, two sofas, fire and access to the conservatory room - a relaxing place to sit and look over the garden. There is central heating in the cottage so whatever time of year you visit, you are sure to be cosy and warm!

Upstairs there are three bedrooms, two double and one single. The master bedroom has a TV and an en suite (electric shower, loo and basin), with plenty of storage. The main bathroom has a free standing, Victorian style bath, loo and basin. Outside, in a little outbuilding is a washing machine with plenty of room in the garden for drying. Well Lane Cottage is lucky to have a good-sized garden at the rear of the cottage with a private trellised sitting area, lawn and flowers beds.

Because Well Lane Cottage is located in the heart of Hugh Town, it is so easy to pop to the shops or restaurants, the quay, and beaches. The Location page pinpoints Well Lane on a map, and gives more details and suggestions of what to do and see during your holiday in the Scilly Isles.
