About the neighbourhood
Glandore Apartments comprise three separate self catering units (Serica, Slippen and Golden Eagle) and are situated in a favoured location at Porthloo (or Porthlow) on the west shore of St. Marys with views across the sea towards Samson, Bryher and Tresco. Porthloo itself is little more than a hamlet of about a dozen houses, mainly surrounding Porthloo Green and facing the sea. The area is about fifteen minutes leisurely walk along the scenic beach path from Hugh Town. On the way, you pass Porthmellon Beach which is one of the most popular family beaches because of its wide expanse of sand and gently sloping beach giving safe paddling and bathing. Porthloo is also home to the spectacular and scenic 9 hole St Marys Golf Club which sits in a commanding position at the top of the hill, overlo... more
