Looking for some peaceful outdoor natural wellness this autumn/winter?
In less than an hour from the UK Guernsey is an idyllic escape and place to recharge the batteries. Abound with picturesque coastlines it’s an adventure playground for hiking and wild swimming in crystal clear sea waters without the crowds.
Visit the island’s award-winning restaurants and bars, delve into Guernsey’s history in a museum and relax with your feet up in your beautiful accommodation. You can fly direct with Guernsey’s own airline Aurigny in just 40mins (or just three hours on a ferry) and the sea is at a refreshing but beautiful temperature at this time of year (often around 18 degrees).
Join a guided walk or go island hopping to Sark, Herm, Alderney and Lihou – just across a cobbled causeway from Guernsey Lihou is a birdwatching paradise and home to the magical tidal Venus Pool. Arrange a wild sea swim experience with a local, cycling to the most hidden historical sites, or booking into a luxury spa hotel for some pampering.
The Islands of Guernsey have long been a source of inspiration for writers and artists, and showcase a rich and varied history. From neolithic structures and an 800 year old fortress to fascinating museums and a highly-praised annual international literary festival, as well as a thriving local arts and music scene, there is so much to dive into on your trip.
When choosing where to stay, Old Government House Hotel (or OGH as it is affectionately known), originally the official residence of the island’s Governor, is the five-star hotel of the island, or try Les Douvres, a boutique country pub in the St Martins country lanes. Alternatively, if Scandinavia log cabins under starry skies, luxury shepherds’ huts and contemporary treehouses, renovated historic towers and stylish safari huts by the sea are more your style, then you will be delighted by the wave of unique places to stay in Guernsey.
