Information for Visitors
4 Kenwyn, Church Street, St Mary's, Isles of Scilly
Whatever your reason for visiting the beautiful Isles of Scilly, here is some information that will help your arrival onto the islands, along with information about Kenwyn 4.
Arriving by Air (Skybus)
If you arrive by Skybus from any of the three mainland airports, you’ll land directly on the main island, St Mary’s. There are minibuses at the airport waiting to transport you and your luggage to your accommodation for a reasonable charge. You can book your return to the airport with the driver who will tell you what time you will be collected on the day of departure.
Arriving by Sea (Scillonian)
If you travel on the ‘Scillonian’, you’ll dock in the main harbour on St Mary’s. Kenwyn 4 will take you around 10 minutes to walk too, through Hugh Town. The walk is a pleasant stroll through the main high street, past the various shops, café’s and public houses that St Mary’s has to offer. You’ll go past the Co-op, which is a good opportunity to buy any provisions you may want for your holiday.
Getting to Kenwyn 4
At the end of the quay, you’ll go past the Mermaid Inn on your left. Turn left here to walk down the main high street. Walk through the town, past the Co-Op on your left until you reach the Town Hall on your right. At the Town Hall, the road forks. Take the right hand fork by the gardens on to Church Street. Walk up Church Street, and you’ll see The Bell Rock Hotel on your right. Kenwyn is a few doors on, on your right hand side. It has blue painted railings and a blue door, with ‘Kenwyn’ etched into the stained glass window above the door, and is almost opposite the Methodist Church.
Your luggage will arrive off of the Scillonian in a ship container, which you’ll see as you walk off the boar. For a small charge per bag, Island Carriers will deliver to Kenwyn 4. They will leave it in the main hallway with an invoice. You will need to go to their office in Porthmellon (a short walk away) to pay and to book for the return journey. They will then collect your luggage from the hall from 10am on your day of departure.
What you’ll find in Kenwyn 4
You’ll find the bed made up as you’ve requested, usually as a super king unless you’ve specifically requested twin beds on your booking form.
Towels, tea towels and some essential provisions are provided as part of your stay at Kenwyn. The dark blue towels may be used as beach towels should you wish.
There is an electricity meter under the end kitchen cupboard which takes new £1 coins. You shouldn’t need many as the electricity is subsidised. There is an emergency coin on top of the meter but should you need to use it please replace it for the next guests.
You’ll find all the essentials within Kenwyn including free Wi-Fi, TV, kitchen essentials including a microwave and fridge, hairdryer and essentials (soap, toilet paper etc). Should there be anything specific that you’d like to make your stay more comfortable, please don’t hesitate to ask and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
I hope you have a simply wonderful time on Scilly, whatever you decide to do. If you’re looking for anything specific, or would like further advice or information, don’t hesitate to ask and I’ll do my best to offer some informed thoughts (or find someone who knows!). Please just drop me an email or give me a call.
With best wishes, and hoping you have a fabulous holiday on these very special islands.
