In 2020, we will visit these lovely islands in the autumn. It is generally warmer than in May, when we have previously visited. For the first time, we will use the sleeper train between London and Penzance to ease travel time. The holiday includes train fares, access to first class lounge and breakfast, boat transfers between the mainland and hotel, a daily transfer boat around the islands and entry to Tresco Abbey Garden. We will stay at the wonderful 4 star Karma Hotel, St Martin’s, right on the waterfront.

Tour Details for Isles of Scilly

The Isles of Scilly are renowned for their beautiful, white, sandy beaches, turquoise water, peace and quiet, tame birds and rare plants, or plants which won’t normally grow in the UK, flourishing there due to Scilly’s lovely temperate climate.

Transport between the islands is by boat, and most of the islands themselves only have a few cars for residents to move their shopping from the quayside to their houses. Life proceeds at a lovely, leisurely pace.

On arrival in Penzance, we will transfer to the Scillonian for the journey to the islands’ capital, St Mary’s, where Sir Harold Wilson had a home and is now buried. Here we take a transfer boat to St Martin’s, where we are booked to stay in the 4-star Karma Hotel on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis.

Our hotel is right on the quayside, overlooking gorgeous beaches and fabulous islets, and it is so dark that, on a clear night, you can see the heavens in a way you can normally only dream of. Each day there will be a transfer boat to other islands and the capital, St Mary’s, which is like a large village.

What to Expect

Our aim at Pennywood Tours is to give you a relaxing and carefree time where we do all the work so you can sit back and enjoy the trip.

To this end, all tours are escorted by a group leader who will check you on board and make sure you can find your allocated seat. We’ll seat you with the person/people you are booked with but if you know of anyone else on the trip who has booked separately please let us know in advance and we’ll try to seat you all together. The coach will be a super deluxe vehicle with a toilet and is incredibly comfortable.

Our Group Leader will advise you of all the details of travel times, stops, when to return to the coach etc. so you will be in no doubt about what and when. He or she will be available for any additional questions you may have.

We will do our best to stick to our itinerary but you will understand that when there are traffic jams or adverse weather conditions, we may struggle to do everything as planned but we will let you know what information we have in these situations when we have it.

We look forward to seeing you and welcome any questions you may have by contacting us at info@pennywoodtours.com or on 01622 434 981.

These tours are ACE from the time you book until farewell at the end of the trip. They give personal attention to every detail. ‘Care – Consideration and Kindness’ should be their motto.
Elaine, South East LondonElaine, South East London
We have taken both day and mini-break trips( with good 4 star accommodation) with Pennywood.The trips are well-organised with a detailed itinerary allowing plenty of time to enjoy each house or garden, some of which are less well-known attractions.
Eric and Helen, LewesEric and Helen, Lewes
We have enjoyed a number of trips with Pennywood Tours, which save us driving long distances - and the coaches are very comfortable. What we particularly like, apart from the gardens we visit, are the hotels we stay in, which have always been excellent.

We have travelled with Pennywood Tours many times, visiting places as diverse as The Isles of Scilly, The Battlefields of Arnhem, The Queens Bedding, The Gardens of Leonardeslee and Nymans and more recently The Post Office Museum. The arrangements regarding parking at the garden centre we depart from, travel to and from the venue and access to it have all been handled with a warm, friendly and professional approach.The visit to Aalsmeer Flower Market was amazing. It is a technological masterpiece.Imagine bystanders surprise when they see it is not the England Football Squad who emerge from the 'England' luxury coach ...

What can I say? I could Rabbit on for hours about the wonderful days out I have looked forward to and enjoyed with Pennywood Tours. How the way you look after us without being intrusive. I know you are keeping an eye on all of us. You create the atmosphere that we are just a group of friends enjoying a day out to interesting places. This, as a lone traveller gave me the confidence to venture on your longer trips.From the moment you climb aboard the out of the world coach, you can sit back and relax knowing that every ...
Keith and Marion, KentKeith and Marion, Kent
We enjoy days out and short breaks away but no longer want to drive too far so the trips arranged by Pennywood Tours are ideal.We just drive to the Garden Centre, park the car (for free) and join the coach.The trips are always well organised, friendly and relaxed. The coaches comfortable with first class drivers and any hotels we stay at are well chosen. We have been on quite a lot of their trips and highly recommend the experience.

Marilyn and Jeff, KentMarilyn and Jeff, Kent
We never considered ourselves ‘coach people’ but after testing the water with day trips we now venture on longer tours. From Booking, either online or, our preferred option by telephone, the service can’t be faulted.Travel is by extremely comfortable coaches with ample ‘comfort’ stops and the tour leaders are always there for you.Accomodation is always first rate, we have no complaints there at all!Safe to say we are hooked and always look forward to seeing what’s on offer in the Pennywood Tours brochure.
Mr S, South East LondonMr S, South East London
I have always enjoyed your tours. We are always very well looked after and I have been to several very educational locations.I thoroughly enjoy the day trips and being transported in the deluxe Guildeline coaches. Your professionalism, relaxed nature and sense of fun makes it all the more enjoyable amongst the nice groups of people who go along. I look forward to the exciting new destinations for the coming year.
