Oh, Hell Yes!

Bryher is the smallest of the inhabited islands of the Isles of Scilly. \

Just one and half miles long by half a mile wide its coast line is remarkably varied. 

The porter from Hell Bay Hotel – the only hotel on the island came to pick us up from the quay – there are two – one for low tide and one for high tide. The van drove along narrow tracks till we reached the hotel.

We met the pooches in resident – the very affectionate Pepper, Labrador retriever

And shy Jasper, a Springer Spaniel.

We were shown to our room – as we checked out all the smells.

We can tell there are lots of dogs who have been here.

We have our own beds, blankets, towel and two bowls.

I decided not to go pink for once.

We hung up our back packs – can you tell we are feeling at home already?

A little pantry with all sorts of goodies –

Mum made herself a cup of tea and we sat outside in the sunshine.

While George wandered checking out the grounds – so typical of him, while I sat with Mum.

We went out to check out the grounds and met Brambles, a seven-month old Australian labradoodle.

He was very puppyish and George told him off. Poor Brambles – he didn’t know what to think of George.

I’m sure we’ll run into Brambles again, so off we went –

Oh wow! Look at that view.

And flowers and foliage we don’t normally see in London.

We found the sunset deck …

I think we were a bit early.

We waited.

And was rewarded with a beautiful sunset.

Panorama of our view.

Time for din-dins at the Bar – where all the doggies went for dinner with their hoomans.

May’s comment: I only learnt about Hell Bay Hotel on Bryher Island from Marvin who had visited just last month. I know his high standards and good taste and took his recommendation. And we’re not disappointed.

Bryher is the smallest of the inhabited islands of the Isles of Scilly. Just one and half miles long by half a mile wide its coast line is remarkably varied. 

Hell Bay Hotel‘s secluded and dramatically beautiful setting is a fab place for a getaway holiday. Friendly staff and dogs are allowed to wander the grounds.

But remember to pick up after your dog.

A letter for our Canine Friends –

Dogs are not allowed in the restaurant – but they will serve the restaurant menu for dog owners. The food was excellent.

Lemon sole
Peanut butter mousse.
