Latest Update (5/11/21)

We're so grateful to everyone that came to stay this season!

Despite the unprecedented circumstances, we hope you'll agree that we struck a sensible balance between keeping everybody safe and sticking to our friendly and relaxed ethos that makes Bryher Campsite what it is. Thank you to everyone for so diligently and unquestioningly following our COVID precautions throughout the 2021 season!

There's a reminder of our 2021 preacautions below, but of course, we very much hope that, by the time we reopen in 2022, most of these will no longer be necessary! However, we will always follow the latest government and industry guidance, as well as doing whatever it takes to keep our campers, team and island community safe.

Thank you for doing your bit to keep everyone safe; we can’t wait to see you in 2022!

Travelling to Scilly

Please do not travel to the islands if you have Coronavirus symptoms or have been told to self-isolate. We would be grateful if you would take Lateral Flow Tests before and during your holiday. Our team is testing on a regular basis too.

Face coverings remain mandatory on all transport to - and around - the islands (even after 19th July). Please check out the Coronavirus information from your travel provider before you start your journey: 
Scillonian/Skybus | Penzance Helicopters | Tresco Boat Services


To minimise handling, please keep all bags below 20kg, and please clearly label all luggage. At the quay, please attach a green Bryher label to every item.

Please don't bring food or gas as these won't be carried on the boats. You can pre-order food from Bryher Shop and please email us to let us know what gas you require.

You will be asked to help in the human chain to unload luggage, so please keep your face covering in place and bring hand sanitiser.

Shower Block

Face coverings remain mandatory in the shared facilities (even after 19th July), except in the shower cubicle. To enable you to keep your face covering in place, you must brush your teeth, wash your face and do makeup at your tent. We've also reduced the number of people able to use the shared facilities at any one time, with adjacent cubicles only to be used by members of the same household.

We are cleaning all shared facilities even more regularly and thoroughly, but cleaning supplies are provided for you to clean facilities before and after use. Under 11s must be accompanied in the shower block this year.

Around the Campsite

Please maintain social distancing and this year, please do not bring friends or relatives to the campsite if they are not staying with us. Freezers are available but are for ice packs only. We have new charging point lockers for small devices this year, so devices are kept separate and secure. At the end of your stay, we will email your bill (or can print it on request). You can pay online by card or BACS, or see us in-person to pay with cash.

If you are renting one of our Bell Tents, please be sure to bring a sheet and/or mattress protector. Tents and all equipment are thoroughly cleaned between guests. We have removed the coir matting and rag rug this year to enable more thorough cleaning.

Food & Activities On Bryher

Inevitably, things are a little different on Bryher this year, but the warm welcome is the same as ever. Remember: there may be new rules and signs in place, but you are as welcome as ever!

Everything on Bryher is open this season. Bryher Shop, Fraggle Rock, Island Fish, Olivia's Kitchen, Hell Bay Hotel and the Crab Shack, Hillside Farm Stall, Bryher Bake Box, Golden Eagle Studio, Bryher Gallery, Hut 62 and Isles of Scilly Boat Hire are all operating. Tresco Boat Services are offering regular inter-island boat trips and wildlife circulars. Bryher Community Centre also remains closed at this time.

Health on the Islands

Scilly is a remote and small community, with excellent but limited medical facilities, so it's really important to keep the islands safe during the pandemic. We're following the advice of the Council of the Isles of Scilly and would appreciate it if you would carry out rapid Lateral Flow Tests before and during your holiday.

Should you develop symptoms during your stay, you must self-isolate and inform us immediately. You will receive a test and while waiting for the results you and your group will need to isolate on the campsite. We will make you as comfortable as possible, but we are unlikely to be able to provide showers during your isolation period. For further information on the response to Coronavirus on the islands, including what would happen if you test positive, please see the Council website.
