Unique Places to Stay this Summer on the Islands of Guernsey

Looking for places to stay in Guernsey this summer? Whether you are escaping as a couple or hosting a group trip, these unique accommodation options will make your trip even more memorable. From glamping by the sea to log cabins and 19th century towers there is something for every style and adventure. 

 

Sand Dune Camping

Tucked away behind sand dunes, Saye Beach Campsite is a unique place for camping in Alderney, where you can enjoy views out to sea from your tent while the dunes keeping the site protected from the wind. Tents are available for hire or you can bring your own. 

The campsite has excellent provisions including a well-stocked shop, picnic area and beach goods store, as well as a high-quality bathroom and dry room facilities. Nearby you will find beaches ideal for surfing, relaxing and an extensive play area for children. 

Treetop Escapes 

Nestled within the woodlands of Fermain Valley, with modern luxury interiors and private balconies overlooking gardens and beyond to the turquoise sea, the Tree House rooms guarantee a magical break. 

Fermain Valley is situated on the east coast of Guernsey with excellent connections to the cliff paths towards St Peter Port and the South Coast. Head down to the valley to watch the sunrise from the pebbled beach, sea swim in the cove or visit the Beach Cafe.

Renovated Fortifications 

Originally an 18th Century lookout point situated on the shore of Fermain Bay, the Fermain Tower has undergone renovation to become a unique self-catering getaway. Head for a morning swim just metres from your door and enjoy uninterrupted views out over the bay from the private roof terrace.

The tower is a perfect base for exploring the parishes of St Peter Port and St Martin as well as the coastal cliff paths. Right on the doorsteps of the Beach Cafe and Fermain Valley Hotel which has 3 excellent restaurants, you will be spoilt for choice with nearby eateries. 

Log Cabins Under Starry Skies

With a private pool, clifftop sea views and excellent stargazing opportunities, this traditional Scandinavian style log cabin on Sark is ideal for group trips. Whilst the cabin is close to Sark’s amenities and most popular beaches, its secluded location will make you feel a world away. 

Sark is the ideal place to unwind. With no cars the island’s unspoilt landscape and charming unpaved roads are best explored on bike. It is also the first designated Dark Sky Island and beautiful place to spend the evening stargazing. 

Safari Tents and Shepherds Huts By The Sea

Combining luxury amenities with adventure by the sea, Guernsey’s Safari tents are perfect for families and groups. With views over the west coast, a 10-minute walk to the beach and private gardens, you can explore island life from a tranquil basecamp. 

Camp des Reves provides excellent amenities including a fully equipped kitchen, lounge and dining area as well as a bathroom and king size beds. There is also a large outdoor children’s play area, BBQ zone and an indoor games room - perfect for families to enjoy.

The site also offers three luxury shepherds huts overlooking the sea, with a log burning stove perfect for off season visits.

Glamping by Rural Coastline

Located on the idyllic island of Sark, the Little Nordiste Farm was born somewhat by accident, as Hollie & Jordan's love for animals acquired them several Pygmy goats, chickens, turkeys, ducks, cats and Biff the dog. Their mini farm quickly became a much loved spot for locals to come and interact with the animals whilst enjoying the incredible sea view.

Wake up to sea views and rural countryside in their circular 5m Bell Tent. With 1 king sized bed and one fold-out double sofa bed it can accommodate up to 4 people total.

Van Life by the Coast 

For those travelling over with campervans or heading out on a van life adventure, Guernsey’s first dedicated campervan site at Beaucette Marina can be found on the northern tip of the island.

Offering visitors unbeatable coastal views in a specially designed campervan setting, the site is perfectly situated close to coastal paths and beautiful beaches. You can also explore nearby heritage sites such as an ancient ten metre long Neolithic passage grave dating back to 3,500 BC and Fort Doyle which was built in 1803 to defend Guernsey’s from the revolutionary French and Fort Le Marchant.
