We found this lovely little b&b completely by accident, and really glad we did. We had booked a day trip to visit St Marys last month, and we decided to go by plane from Newquay, rather than going on the boat from Penzance, so we could make the most of the day with maximum time to spend there. All was... More

For our first visit to the Isles of Scilly, Bob & Tina were ideal hosts. From their welcome the moment we arrived through to our departure four days later they were great. Location was excellent for everything; the breakfast choice was a filling way to start each day made better by winning one of Bob's infamous quiz questions!; our room... More

My wife and I along with another couple stayed at Shearwater for a week at the end of June. The location is superb, being close to restaurants, cafes, and ferries. We were disappointed in our room (Room 2) which we found to be very small for a double. Effectively only one of us could get ready at a time if... More

Thank you for your review. We are sorry you were placed into a smaller bedroom. The bedrooms were larger in this 250 year old house until the en-suite were built in. The front bedroom a family room is larger as it has a double and single bed in it that your friends used as a twin room. Whether returning to... More

Just back from a thoroughly enjoyable 2 night stay. Perfect position on St Mary's with a fantastic breakfast in the morning. Didn't get to try the evening meal maybe next time). Had a warm welcome from Tina and Bob when we arrived, but didn't see them when we left (sorry). Thanks to you both for making our trip so good.... More

A great place to stay and unwind. Tina and Bob are a friendly couple who can't do enough for you. The food is excellent both in quantity and quality. Miss staying here at your own risk. We will return, hopefully many more times.

Shearwater was a delightful place to stay. Tina and Bob are excellent hosts, informative and entertaining. The accommodation was super, as were all our meals. We thoroughly enjoyed our few days there on what was our first trip to the islands and have already booked our next stay at Shearwater.
