Leave At Home

Cheap, huge, high sided tents that will fall down in high winds

Kayaks & paddle boards - you can hire them next door to the site

Scilly Ferries / Harland and Wolff

A new company is advertising a ferry service to Scilly and tickets can be "provisionally" booked online. Please note - This service is NOT currently running - if you book with this company you may not be able to travel to the Islands.

We know very little about how the proposed service will run. We do know that only a small amount of carry on luggage will be permitted, so for most campers, this is unlikely to be a viable option.

The speed of the crossing is likely to vary significantly as the advertised crossing times assume very calm sea conditions, in normal or rough sea conditions, longer journey times and/or cancelled sailings are likely. This may mean you miss part of your holiday or you may need a private transfer to or from St Agnes (depending on arrival/departure times).

We currently strongly recommend booking with one of the other trusted travel providers above.

Onward Transport

If you’re travelling from further afield, the three destination airports connect to the whole of Europe, with air links to major UK and international airports from Newquay and Exeter Airports. Rail links from London, Birmingham and the North are also available to Penzance, where you can hop on the Isles of Scilly Travel shuttle bus to Land’s End Airport or across to Penzance Quay, enjoying a totally car-free journey.

Travel from St. Mary's to St. Agnes

The Spirit of St Agnes provides the inter-island boat service. There are usually several trips between St Marys and St Agnes every day except Sundays. It routinely meets the Scillonian ferry to transport luggage and passengers to St Agnes. It is not neccessary to book this transfer but you can if you wish using their App (on the app store). If you are arriving by air, you should check with St Agnes boating to confirm your transfer to St Agnes.

Please ensure all bags are labeled with your name and Troytown, St Agnes. Please advise us when booking if you will have a kayak or other heavy or bulky gear. We will meet the boat and transport your luggage to the campsite/cottages by tractor and trailer. All bags are handled manually by the boat crew and the campsite staff so please wherever possible restrict single items of luggage to a maximum of 20kgs.

Camping trailers, bikes, dinghies, kayaks and diving equipment can be brought to St. Agnes. If you have any of these please check with the Steamship Company at Penzance before confirming your holiday dates at Troytown.

Directions to Troytown Farm

The campsite is an easy 15 minute walk from the Quay where you will arrive on the Island. If you follow the concrete road from the quay, straight on past the Turks Head pub, Covean cafe, the Post office stores, past the lighthouse on your right and the Coastguard cottages on your left. The concrete changes to a rough farm track and the campsite is at the end of this track.

For experienced kayakers it is possible to kayak to St Agnes from St Marys and the other islands and the campsite beach is suitable for landing and storing kayaks.
