Island Arrival & Departure Information

If arriving on the Scillonian then all luggage must be clearly labelled ‘Peninnis Farm’ to be delivered by Island Carriers. Luggage will automatically be transferred from the delivery shipping container into the Island Carriers van on St Mary’s Quay and be delivered to the farm for a nominal fee per item. When paying at the Carriers office for delivered luggage a day can be booked for luggage collection on departure.

Please CLICK HERE for directions from the quay to the farm which is about a ten minute walk.

If arriving by plane or helicopter then Island Transfers shuttle buses will be at the airport to take guests to the farm for a small fee and the driver will arrange a pick up time on departure.


Lodges are available from 4pm on arrival and need to be vacated by 9.30am on departure. We do have facilities on site for storing luggage for those who are arriving early or departing late.   

Although a holiday on Scilly is still within the UK, travel can still be disrupted and so we strongly recommend and urge all guests to take out appropriate holiday insurance cover to include cancellation and travel disruptions due to weather and other unforeseen circumstances.
