Boat House over the dune to the sea

Between the woods and Greve de Lecq, one of the most beautiful bays in Jersey. Change into your swimming costumes, wrap in a towel, walk 100m over the dune and jump in! Stunning cliff path walks to East and West. Cafes on your door and the Arts Trust which hosts regular exhibitions at the barracks (they also do printing and potting workshops).

Our home is a detached boat house above garages. You can see the sea from the balcony, bedroom and bathroom. There is one ensuite bathroom and one shower room. There is a loft space which has a spare mattress. The second bedroom has a truckle bed so can accommodate two people. There is a long balcony to the West, tucked in under a grassy bankand shaded by trees, that is busy with birdsong in the mornings. Look up and likely you will see woodpeckers, choughs and buzzards. There are binoculars you can borrow. The stars on a clear night are spectacular.

One of our garages has a paddle board and bikes you can borrow. Our home has steep steps to access,. We have a projector for the computer instead of a TV, The utility room is through the garage and holds the washing machine. Drying is on a rack and line on the balcony. We have a smallish salty dog so understand if you want to bring one too. We recommend SCOOP the organic co operative a 30 minute cycle away or there is a small supermarket a 30 minute there and back walk through the woods.

About the location

Jersey is gorgeous, we recommend hiring electric bikes and exploring all the bays depending on wind direction and the state of the tide (head East for the early morning highs). Have a look here: is also busting with history

However we hardly go any where else because Greve de Lecq is wonderful for swimming, surfing when the wind is right, coasteering, cave kayaking (when it`s very calm and low tides), picnics, sandcastles, icecream, breakfasts and glasses of wine as the sun goes down...
