I have just returned from a wonderful 10 days on the Isles of Scilly ( not the Scilly Isles, don’t get that one wrong!) If you need to get away and recharge the batteries then I don’t think there is a better place in the UK to do so. It was bloody cold but I suspect no worse than the rest of the country.

Over the 10 days we had the opportunity to walk around beautiful countryside, play a bit of golf on a stunning course, forage for seaweed and edible plants around the Porthcressa beach and much, much more.

I have included a number of photos to inspire you. If you need time away from the coalface, I can recommend it.

The only downside was spending three and a half hours on the Scillonian ferry in gale force winds on the way back to Penzance. (Pics taken of this are here)
