We booked Newman House for seven retired members of our family, ages 62 - 92. We were all absolutely delighted with our choice. The house itself is very spacious and comfortable and we were very well looked-after by the owners and housekeeper. There was nothing about the house that disappointed us.
But when it comes to the location ..... things only get better! Newman House is close enough to the ferry terminal in Hugh Town to allow you to be settling yourselves in just minutes after docking, but far enough away to feel secluded and quiet. The garden and the first floor lounge both provide wonderful places to sit and admire the view across ocean and islands, but we had little time for such pleasures as we were active everyday, walking, biking, kayaking or climbing either on St Mary's or one of the other islands.
This was our first trip to the Isles of Scilly. When we come back, our first call will be find out whether Newman House is free.
