  • Description

    Description

    We are a retired couple who are very much young at heart. We live on an island 30 miles from mainland Cornwall in England. The Isles of Scilly is a beautiful place, an archipelago with five inhabited islands and 140 uninhabited ones. The whole group is designated an AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). We live on the main island, St Mary's where the population is approx 1,200.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will learn about life away from the fast lane, few cars, where walking and cycling are a common form of transport and golf buggies are allowed to be driven on the ten kilometres of roads. The islands have many archaeological sites and the tides and boats are more important than clocks and cars.

    What else ...

    Time off can be spent exploring the islands, beach-combing and socialising with locals. There are not many shops here and the pace of life is very relaxed and simple.
