Carnwethers Country House and its cottages stand in approximately one acre of well-stocked gardens. 

As well as full use of the gardens, guests also have access to a wide range of facilities, which can be enjoyed throughout your stay. These include a salt chlorinated and solar heated swimming pool and sun loungers, games room, library, croquet lawn and barbeque.

The 10m x 5m heated pool* is the perfect way to relax at the end of the day. The water is usually maintained at a temperature of between 21 and 27 degrees celsius.


Our games room is very well stocked. Enjoy a game of pool on our full-size table, peruse the communal library of books, CDs and DVDs, or choose a board game to borrow.


Or simply stroll through our beautiful gardens, play a round of croquet, lounge by the pool or find a secluded spot for a snooze.


Carnwethers is also home to a flight of doves that make their home in our Dove Cotes.

*Swimming Pool

Please note: children using the pool must be supervised by a responsible parent or guardian at all times. There is no lifeguard on duty.



All cottages have electric cookers, microwaves, electric kettles, refrigerators, colour TV, hairdryers, heating and heated towel rails. Linen and bath towels are provided.  (Please bring your own beach towels.)


Rates are inclusive of WiFi, electricity, heating and hot water.  


Dove Lawn and Poolside have their own laundry facilities. A laundry room is available" for Secret Garden and Rowan Tree guests.

There is also a communal washing line.



Carnwethers welcomes well-behaved dogs and their responsible owners, but by prior arrangement only. Drinking bowls, poop scoops and bio-degradable bags are available. 


A charge* of £35 per week is made per dog, a percentage of which is shared amongst local environmental groups - the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust, the local Bat Group - and the Vet Support Group - at the end of the season.


*Assistance dogs stay free of charge. 


There is a vet on the islands. 


'Creature Comforts' was set up by the voluntary Vet Support Group to raise funds to support the islands’ vet.  This charity provides visitors with the option to 'hire' dog beds and blankets, additional dog bowls and cages for a donation. 


If you intend to bring your dog to the Isles of Scilly, this can save you the effort of transporting your own pets’ bedding and accoutrements. And your contribution will go towards the maintenance of a veterinary practice on the Islands.
