Meet the Brett’s. They arrive today for a week-long break to Tresco which they won in last year’s Family Traveller Magazine competition! We hope they have a great time…

For the youngsters Adam and Naomi, it’s the first time on an aeroplane. “They’re very excited about that especially as it’s in such a small aircraft,” says grandmother, Sue. “We are all very much looking forward to our stay on the Isles of Scilly. It will be the first time for all of us… although we’ve known about the islands for a long time and always wanted to visit.”

Sue first got to hear about the Isles of Scilly watching TV programmes such as Coast, Gardener’s World and Countryfile and ever since, a trip to Tresco Abbey Garden has been on her bucket list!  “Phil and I are very keen gardeners so I am really looking forward to visiting the Abbey Garden,” says Sue.  “The children can’t wait to get down to the beach and the sea – I think they will be amazed by just how beautiful they are here.  We’re also looking forward to some great family time. We live very close to busy roads on the mainland so the peace and quiet, and walking opportunities with very few cars around will be fantastic.”

Pictured from left to right are: Grandfather Phil, Grandmother Sue, Mum Sarah, and Naomi and Adam – three generations of Brett heading off for a lovely late Easter holiday break.

The Family Traveller Competition was for a week-long break staying in a Seagarden Cottage on Tresco Island, plus flights from Land's End courtesy of Isles of Scilly Travel.  In 2015, Family Traveller named the Isles of Scilly "Best UK Family Destination".
