Staying at The Peninsula Hotel Guernsey
7 DAYS | 4th August 2017
This year we try a spot of Channel Island hopping and our base for this adventure is Guernsey, the Second largest of the Channel Islands boasting beautiful scenery, rural calm and a mild climate. There are over 20 curving bays and beaches, miles of spectacular cliff walks, winding lanes and hours of sunshine to enjoy. St. Peter Port is the capital of Guernsey and is a town of narrow cobbled streets offering a great visit. During our stay we visit the two fascinating islands of Herm and Sark both are, quiet and peaceful.
The Peninsula Hotel Guernsey, is ideally situated on a sandy beach on the north-west coast of the island. The hotel has wonderful views over Grand Havre Bay from the front and boasts a lovely sheltered beach at the edge of five acres of private landscaped gardens. In addition to a restaurant, the hotel features an outdoor heated pool and pleasant bar/lounge. Guest rooms are all en-suite with complimentary Wi- Fi, coffee/tea makers and TV. The local bus runs from outside the hotel giving easy access to the Island.
We depart Macclesfield for the short journey to Manchester Airport. We take a morning flight to Guernsey*. Upon arrival in Guernsey, we will transfer to our hotel.
After breakfast we have a tour of the Island. We take in many of the pretty sights and call for lunch whilst we are out and about.
Today we have the option of visiting the Island of Sark. The island is three miles long by one and a half miles wide, almost cut in two it is linked by La Coupee causeway. On Sark you will find enchanting bays, caves, pools and no cars. The only modes of transport on the island are bicycle, tractor or horse drawn carriage. Well worth a visit! (Cost not included return ferry crossing approximately £48.00)
Day at leisure to explore the many coastal paths or relax by the pool.
Our tour today takes us across to the neighbouring Island of Herm. This tiny island of 600 acres has a surprising variety of natural scenery. There are no cars or roads just a delightful coastal walk around the island that takes you through wooded valleys, undulating grassland and beautiful beaches. There are a couple of shops, a hotel and a café for lunch.
The last day to top up your tan or perhaps catch the local bus and do a little shopping in St. Peter Port.
Morning at leisure. Around lunch time we head for the airport and our flight home*. We are met at Manchester Airport by a Roy McCarthy Coach to return us home early evening.
