Holidays - Datestone on Daymark on St Martin’s

Find out more about Scilly on an 'Explore Scilly' short break holiday based at the Star Castle Hotel, St Mary's. The Star Castle was built in 1593 and has been a hotel since 1933. It is located in a commanding position on the top of The Garrison, St Mary’s and has wide-ranging views.


This five day holiday includes three days of guided walks led by me or my husband, Chas Wood. There will be guided walks on St Mary’s, St Agnes and Gugh and Tresco (including a tour of the Abbey Garden). The holiday offers an opportunity to find out about the history of the islands, to see many species of birds and to enjoy the exotic flora across this beautiful archipelago. This is a relaxed, informal walking holiday and the walking style will suit both experienced and inexperienced walkers.




Details are as follows:
