Room Facilities…

Skokholm Cottage

Skokholm Cottage

Each room has solar powered hot water and electric lighting. There are 4 twin rooms and one double bedroom in the renovated farm buildings.

In the cottage there are 4 single rooms and one twin room which can be converted into a double.

There are further 2 twin rooms are in the Wheelhouse block. There are modern compost toilets adjacent to each block. However, living off grid means that there are no showers.

Electrical charging is available in the library but as all power is solar generated it may be limited on dull days. The library has an exceptional range of reference books and the common room in the cottage is open to all.

The accommodation is self-catering. Visitors bring their own food but there is a shop on the island well stocked with basic foods and treats. The communal kitchen has two cookers powered by bottled gas together with plenty of cooking and eating utensils and each visitor is allocated both fridge and freezer space. Because of the limited power there is no microwave.

Skokholm Island is a wild and beautiful place to stay, quieter and smaller than its sister, Skomer, there is a romance and charm to the place. Over the last few years we have been renovating the accommodation on the island with the fantastic help of the Friends of the Islands.

Please be aware that you can be stranded on Skokholm by the weather. It is advisable not to make important dates in your calendar for the few days after what should be your embarkation date from the island.

The boat out goes at 7.30am on Friday and 9am on a Monday and these are the only times the boat sails (unless there has to be a change due to the weather or the tides). Times will be confirmed upon booking.
