Troytown, St Agnes
Isles of Scilly
During the sumer months it is essential to book for self-catering and camping. Follow the links on the left for current status and availability. Outside of peak times, you are welcome to arrive at short notice.
Troytown Farm and Campsite are located along a farm track which can get muddy after periods of heavy rain and is very rough and stony in places. If you are bringing a baby or small child, a backpack carrier or all-terrain pushchair is more suitable than a umbrella style buggy. If you use a wheelchair, it would be difficult to reach Troytown campsite.
St Agnes does not have a bus or taxi service. Everywhere on the Island is within easy walking distance and although visitors are welcome to bring bicycles, walking is the easiest and best way to get around the island.
With no mains water or natural springs on St Agnes, we are responsible for our own supply. We have our own deep borewells at Troytown and collect rainwater from all the roofs in storage tanks. This is filtered and treated with UV light before use. With an ongoing programme of investment in water production and storage, we can offer our visitors normal facilities in the way of showers, flush toilets, and a washing machine. However, it is important that visitors to our small island appreciate that water is a precious commodity, and it should always be used with care and never wasted. Occasionally, after a prolonged dry spell, reserves can run low and some rationing may have to be imposed.
Being in such a unique and spectacular location we care a great deal about the environment and try to reduce negative impact on the island. Rubbish is sorted on the site so please take care to separate your waste into the appropriate bins for recycling and composting etc... Please try to leave the campsite and the island as you find it.
