Ellingham Self Catering
Only two miles from the picturesque harbour town of St Peter Port and yet a short walk to the south-coast cliffs and bays. The nearest beach is Moulin Huet, a sandy bay captured in a series of wonderful oil paintings by the artist Renoir during his stay in 1883. From here join the beautiful cliff paths for a stroll with stunning views and access to numerous other bays.
There is also a selection of great restaurants, bars, local shops and supermarkets within short walking distance of the Ellingham Self Catering Cottages.
The Ellingham Apartments at Bordeaux is located only 30 seconds walk from the brightly coloured fishing boats bobbing in the natural little harbour of Bordeaux, on the north east coast of Guernsey. The harbour is a popular spot for artists and photographers due to it’s natural beauty and gorgeous light as the sun rises.
Have an uplifting start to your day by wandering to the harbour with a mug of tea to enjoy the view of Herm, Jethou and Sark islands and nearby Vale Castle. The sheltered clear water makes it an ideal place for a swim, particulary when the tide is in. Children will enjoy building sandcastles and looking for crabs in the rocky outcrops.
This north coast of Guernsey has a gentle terrain and miles of flat coastal paths and quaint lanes, ideal for walking or cycling to the white sand and blue waters of L’Ancresse and Pembroke beaches. With beach kiosks and a large cafe, it is easy to spend a day here with the sand between your toes.
The views from nearby Vale Castle are spectacular and a lovely walk away. The current Castle was built about 600 years ago and was ideally positioned to defend the northern side of Guernsey, which at that time was separated from the rest of the island by a channel. During the Second World War, Germans forces built their own concrete fortifications within, which are still there today. Each August bank holiday weekend, Vale Castle is transformed into a vibrant whirl of energy as the Vale Earth music and arts festival makes full use of the the acoustics, terracing and atmosphere. Not to be missed if you are on-island!
