Beautiful accommodation in a fantastic location. The Old Town is quiet and atmospheric. The nature reserve is at the end of the road and is a lovely tranquil place to walk. Unfortunately I was there at the wrong time of year to see migratory birds. Cannot fault anything about the accommodation.

Quite simply this was the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in. Every detail had been thought of. The location in the Old Town was great. I just can't wait to go back! The welcome pack provided was brilliant, including local eggs and bacon homemade biscuits and marmalade and a bottle of wine and more! Had the weather... More

All the family had a wonderful three nights at Carn Ithen in August. Nigel and Danni were so welcoming and warm. Breakfasts were delicious and accommodation very comfortable. We loved all the art and ceramics! Our hosts' information about the islands was better than any guidebook. We have many happy memories and hope to return soon.

We stayed at Carn Ithen for a week and had a great time. Carn Ithen is located in Old Town, which is around a 15-20 min walk from the Quay where the boat from Penzance docks. It is in a quiet residential road just 50 metres from a lovely beach. There are several places within a few mins walk to... More

Wonderful first stay in Scilly. Danni and Nigel are perfect hosts with great recommendations for sights to see from Nigel and amazing breakfasts from Danni! Could not have stayed in a better b&b and we hope to return

Four of us stayed for 4 nights; our accommodation, hosts and the breakfasts absolutely made our holiday. Nigel and Danni are superb hosts with a wonderful enthusiasm and knowledge of the Islands. The house is in a quiet cul-de-sac between a beach and a nature reserve. The house is not that conveniently close to the main town but Golf buggies... More

Excellent accommodation and food, delightful and knowledgeable hosts, within 100 yards of the sea and a nature walk - what more could you ask for?? We wrote in the visitors book "as good as it gets" and it is!

Very nice stay with Nigel and Danni recently. Scilly was beautiful and a great time of year to see the flowers. Nigel's recommendations for the island trips were spot on. Lots of eating choices and easy to get around on foot.

We stayed 5 nights at Carn Ithen at the beginning of May this year. The islands are stunningly beautiful and have an abundance of bird life - one of the main reasons for our visit. We have stayed at a lot of B&Bs and we rate Carn as one of the very best. Our hosts Danni and Nigel were fantastic... More
