Hell Bay is tucked away in a secluded cove facing the Atlantic Ocean on the beautiful, rugged island of Bryher. There can be few hotels in the British Isles that enjoy such a spectacular and picturesque setting. It’s the ultimate place to escape, relax and recharge.
Set in our own grounds, we have 25 suites, all beautifully appointed with Lloyd Loom furniture and Malabar fabrics. Rooms and public spaces also boast works by some of Cornwall’s leading artists. We have a large terrace, where you can enjoy a long leisurely lunch or drink while taking in the extraordinary views. A sunset deck to take in the stunning sunsets over Gweal Hill, perfect for that romantic moment with a glass of Champagne. Our bar, restaurant and crab shack menus include a wide selection of local and seasonal food. There is a spa treatment room, heated outside swimming pool and tennis court, and we even have our own chickens should you fancy collecting your breakfast eggs in the morning.
The hotel is on Bryher, which is the smallest of the inhabited islands of Scilly measuring only about half a square mile. There are a couple of dozen houses dotted around, the Fraggle Rock bar and a small shop and deli. The island is virtually traffic free and is criss-crossed with paths and tracks that take you up over the grassy and rocky knolls and to the deserted sandy beaches that make up much of the coastline. Bryher’s closest neighbour is the island of Tresco, where you can find the famous Abbey Garden in addition to a pub, delicatessen and restaurant. Tresco is owned by the Dorrien Smith family, who also own Hell Bay.
