Picture of the week: 10th April

The Isles of Scilly (which is the prefered name, rather than 'Scilly Isles' or 'Scillies') is an archipelago of five inhabited islands and numerous other small rocky islets 28 miles off Lands End - the most South Westerly point of the British Isles. With a total population of just over two thousand, an exceptionally mild climate, and countless golden sandy beaches, Scilly is a beautiful haven of peace and tranquility loved by visitors and locals alike.

If you saw Scilly on BBC1's Countryfile on Easter Sunday, you'll have spotted how fantastic the islands are looking in this lovely sunny spell. It was filmed a couple of weeks before Easter, of course, but the weather for the Easter holidays was mostly even better - not a cloud in the sky. And didn't our local food businesses, Salakee Duck, Troytown Farm and Veronica Farm Fudge look fantastic? If you didn't catch it, it's well worth watching it on iPlayer here.

The views and lovely sea colours really are as stunning as they appear in the BBC footage; if you don't believe me, why not book a trip and see for yourselves? It's easier than you might think to get here (just a 15 minute flight from Lands End) and there's still some April and May accommodation availability on the following page:
