Our week long stay at Slippen was magnificent. The apartment is impeccably turned out, and the garden ideal for our toddler to run around being entranced by the visiting ducks. The location is great - nice and quiet but completely suited for accessing all the...More

Excellent position for exploring both ends of the Island and well away from the hubbub so was really good for watching the birds and almost-resident ducks. We were only a step away from the myriad of quiet back lanes where the other wildlife was abundant...More

About the neighbourhood
Glandore Apartments comprise three separate self catering units (Serica, Slippen and Golden Eagle) and are situated in a favoured location at Porthloo (or Porthlow) on the west shore of St. Marys with views across the sea towards Samson, Bryher and Tresco.

Porthloo itself is little more than a hamlet of about adozen houses, mainly surrounding Porthloo Green and facing the sea. The area is about fifteen minutes leisurely walk along the scenic beach path from Hugh Town. On the way, you pass Porthmellon Beach which is one of the most popular family beaches because of its wide expanse of sand and gently sloping beach giving safe paddling and bathing.
Car not needed

Airport: St Marys Airport: 3.0 km
Ferry: Ferry Terminal at St Marys Harbour: 2.0 km
Visitors have two choices for travel to the Isles of Scilly. There are scheduled air services (Isles of Scilly Skybus) connecting the islands with Lands End Airport, Newquay Airport and Exeter Airport or, alternatively, the passenger ferry, RMV Scillonian III, which connects the islands with Penzance in Cornwall. (Please note that the Scillonian is ONLY a passenger ferry - there are no regular facilities for bringing visiting cars to the islands)

Flights from Lands End to St Marys take about 15 minutes, from Newquay about 35 minutes and from Exeter about 50 minutes. Two types of aircraft are operated by the Isles of Scilly Skybus. One is the de Havilland (Canada) DHC-6 Twin Otter seating up to 19 passengers and the other is the Britten-Norman Islander seating up to 9 passengers.
