You can get paid to live on a stunning remote island off Cornwall – as long as you don’t mind cooking or cleaning

A BEAUTIUL paradise island off the coast of Cornwall will pay you to live there – as long as you don't mind cooking or cleaning.

Tresco, located in the Isles of Scilly, is looking to hire a number of people to work on the island this year, with includes full pay and accommodation.

Jobs include cleaners, chefs and front of house staff, to welcome the influx of tourists expected this year.

Nick Halliday, CEO of Tresco Estate, said guests can expect "chalet hosting at a ski resort but swap the snow for lush golden sand and a subtropical climate.”

He explained: "Everyone has fantasised about fleeing to a remote island and escaping the hustle and bustle of normal life.

"With varied island jobs to choose from, now is the chance to turn that dream into a reality.”

There are just 150 people living on the island, many of which are young families, so any lucky staff members will get to know the locals pretty quickly.

Also included in the positions are travel to and from the island, restaurant and shop discounts and cheaper stays for friends and family who visit the island.

The island, which is just two and a half miles long, is run by the Dorrien-Smith family and is the second largest of the Scilly Islands, and one of the only ones that is privately-owned.

It also has a mild climate all year round, so you can expect nice weather even later into the year, while Appletree Bay beach has white sands similar to the Caribbean.

If you fancy visiting, there is the famous Tresco Abbey Garden with more than 20,000 exotic plants and salvaged shipwreck figureheads on display.

For a holiday there, you can stay at a number of cottages and apartments on the island, and eat at the Flying Boat Bistro or The New Inn.
