We stayed here at the end of July, at the height of the holiday season, and were happy with how peaceful the campsite was. We opted for the Readi-tent option, and everything we could have needed for 5 day's camping was provided. Our suitcases were collected from the ferry, and we just had to make our way on foot to...

Just got back from camping at the Garrison, it was WONDERFUL, the way the grounds are planted gives privacy and is beautiful, rabbits running around, birds waiting for part of your breakfast, you can get a cuppa and warm croissants from the shop each morning (lovely!) Barbara and Ted were soooo helpful, Ted helped when my tent had a broken... More

We camped for 5 nights at Garrison campsite in July 2014 and enjoyed it tremendously . . The opening times of the shop, although infrequent are clearly marked, and when open we found the staff friendly and helpful, 5 minutes is a little short to enjoy a shower, especially when you used about 20 seconds of your quota between putting...

We stayed in Greystones 2 and found this a very comfortable cottage. We used the one bedroom and the sofa bed in the lounge and found this really good for the two of us. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and the owners, Barbara and Ted were very accommodating and a really nice couple. We took two dogs with... More

The garrison campsite is at a very picturesque location, Camping is affordable, the site is clean, and the atmosphere is friendly. The only downside was the hidden cost of paying one pound per 5 minute shower.

I have stayed in the Garrison cottages a few times and on each occasion thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It goes without saying that the majority of time spent is away from the cottage but they are well equipped and meet the needs of any visitor looking to explore the Scilly Isles. The cottages comprise of a living/ dining area, bedrooms,... More

We have stayed at the garrison campsite three times, this year in the tower! We have always found the campsite to be perfectly adequate, the staff and owners always helpful and chatty. Although the cost of the showers was a surprise the first year, we budgeted for them in a pound pot for our second stay! We don't mind supporting... More

This is the only campsite on St Marys. It has a great location and by Scilly standards it is not too exposed with thick hedges providing some shelter. The site is quite large but broken down into smaller fields. Large families or friends can book into the same spaces. Every pitch has a picnic bench - really useful. The campsite,... More

I and a few friends stayed there in August 2013 , thankfully for only one night, The owners and the staff were utterly misreable and rude. the place for height of the season was remarkably empty ( previous stay tourists must have learnt a lesson). It's over priced , the shop rarely opened and the facilities are dire. Unfortunately for... More
