60 Second Bio...

Phil and Sarah Spence are now in their third season as the owners of Seriously Scilly.

The business incorporates South Hill Cottage (home), Firmans Cottage, The Victory & they added a brand new property to the island in 2017, The Nook.  All close to one another on the beautiful island of Bryher, just a stones throw from Green Bay.


They may be fairly new to the islands (by Scilly standards), but are certainly no strangers to property management and hospitality.  

Phil owns a successful design and build company in Buckinghamshire and Sarah previously managed a number of  hotels

and worked in the travel industry for over 12 years.   Sarah now juggles life on the islands with her very busy digital design business,  

Studio Spence.


Phil, Sarah & daughter Mila have made Bryher their full time home and are full of passion for the beautiful island and what Scilly has to offer.

All 3 of our rental properties will be part of The Smart Islands Initiative, which  is inspired by the Smart Cities and Communities – it seeks to improve life on islands through sustainable, integrated solutions that make the most out of islands’ competitive advantages. More so, the Smart Islands Initiative underscores the role of islands in accelerating Europe’s transition into a low carbon, sustainable and economy.  Read more about Smart Island Here
