    Has anyone been camping on the Scilly Isles? In my first look into it, you can't take your car there - so how on earth do you take camping stuff over? Any holiday tips/ideas would be welcome. Thank you.

    Have s look at the Troytown farm website. It gives you general hints and tips about getting there with camping gear. Troytown is on St Agnes but the advice holds good for all the islands. If you’re taking a lot of stuff though I would think you’re limited to going over on the Scillonian rather than flying. All camping on scilly does tend to get booked up really quickly though. You could also look at a holiday let but that would be a bit more expensive. It is well worth it though ... it’s heavenly.

    Meant to say ... lots of owners will pick you up from the ferry and take your stuff to your destination in a tractor and trailer.

    yes, you can have your camping gear taken to the campsite for you by tractor - a real luxury if you are used to lugging it around on the bus!

    Aaah - I thought it might be. People tend to go every year. You might still be able to pick up a holiday let though? Some families have little one bedroom places if it's just two of you.

    I wanted to go on holiday there but I found it far more expensive to go there a than many other places. Shame really as we would have liked to the go...no way would we camp now though. I can not see Mrs Oldy carrying camping gear. She would have all her knitting to mange LOL

    It's worth going. Definitely.

    Small businesses there move luggage including camping gear around for a very reasonable small charge. Just make sure it's correctly labelled and it'll get there before you do!
