Peninnis Farm Lodges

St Marys, Isle of Scilly, England

New for 2018! Offering self-catering holidays in custom designed lodges on the edge of Hugh Town, not far from Porthcressa Beach.


WE NO LONGER FEATURE THIS ACCOMMODATION ON QUIRKYACCOM.COM - but do have many other wonderful places. Take a look!

If you are looking for beautiful white beaches and a quality of life that is difficult to find in this busy world, then the Isles of Scilly is your destination of choice. If you haven't been to Scilly before there really is a treat in store waiting for you to discover. Holidaying at Peninnis Farm is all about leaving the mainland world behind and enjoying the relaxed slower pace of island life.

There are 7 fully equipped lodges that each sleep 5 guests in 2 bedrooms and boast an open plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a modern shower room and an outdoor area with a BBQ/Fire pit - perfect for barbequing the local sausages or perhaps even your own catch!

The lodges all have complimentary Wi-Fi, a wood burner, television, dishwasher, ironing facilities, cots and highchairs.

Peninnis Farm is ideally located away from the hustle and bustle of the town but only a short pleasant walk away from Hugh Town. On either side of the farm are some of the island's best beaches, Porthcressa and Old Town beach and the harbour is only a 10 minute walk away. Bordering the farm is also the spectacular Peninnis Head with its signature lighthouse and stunning rock formations.

On this small family run farm there are chickens, Ruby Red Devon cattle and Oxford Sandy and Black pigs and at certain times of the year we will have piglets and calves. Children are welcome to join Farmer Dan in the mornings on the animal round to collect the eggs and feed the hens and pigs. The free range eggs and locally reared bacon and sausages are available to purchase on site for the perfect breakfast.

Bookings cannot be taken more than 11 months in advance and families and couples are catered for; large groups are only taken by prior arrangement.

Dogs are welcome outside of school holidays for a fee, when short breaks are also possible. 7 night minimum stay at peak times with arrival days are Monday and Saturday. Prices from £575-£1375 for this duration.

Prices from £460-£876 for 3/4 night short breaks with Monday and Friday arrival days - off peak only.
