Gweal is a 2 bedroom cottage, with sea views from the living areas on the first floor, located just yards from the Harbour. This newly converted cottage is a lovely place for a holiday on the Isles of Scilly with family or friends. Gweal accepts dogs. Gweal and Gerwick have an inter-connecting door on the first floor that can be opened up to create one larger cottage with 4 bedrooms, sleeping parties of up to 8 adults.

Gweal has been designed as a “reverse living” cottage, with the bedrooms on the ground floor, and the living areas on the first floor, to give guests the maximum benefit from the sea views.
NEW LODGES – Over the winter (2021/2022) we are building 5 new lodges, to be sited in the area in front of Gerwick and Gweal Cottages. Gerwick and Gweal cottages, sited behind the new lodges, are reversed living, plus the site slopes down towards the sea quite steeply, so the views from the living areas of the 2 cottages will remain unchanged. The view from the seating area in front of Gerwick and Gweal will likely be partially obscured, although the ridge line of each lodge is about in line with half way down each of the cottage ground floor windows. Works are due to start in our closed season, from end of October 2021, with perhaps just some minor archaeological works before that. We expect all works to be completed by the end of next March, and if work does run over, by then it will be interior works.
Bedroom 1 – can be set up as twin or double bedded room, a large room with chest of drawers for storage. The window overlooks the front. En suite bathroom with toilet and shower.
