Discover rooms with a different view
From wild camping to historic towers, add some atmosphere with these unusual places to stay. Frame your Jersey escape with a one-off location and see the island through different eyes. How about a historic fort, a radio tower perched on the cliff edge or a 30s-style boat-shaped beach hut steps from the sand? Make one of the island’s heritage locations your home for your stay and get a unique island experience.
Boat life at Barge Aground
How about staying in… not on a boat? A one-of-a-kind seaside escape awaits at this 1930s beach hut hideaway complete with portholes, with St Ouen’s beach quite literally on your doorstep. Right at the heart of the area’s nature reserve, the sights, sounds and salty air of the bay are yours for your stay. And did we mention the sun sets into the sea almost directly opposite your terrace?

King of your own castle
It’s one of Jersey’s most iconic locations, and Elizabeth Castle can be all yours (well nearly) with a stay at this apartment within the barracks. Cut off by the tide twice a day, with ferry transport to and from the castle, this historic Tudor castle location on the rocks is yours to explore.
Elizabeth Castle, check tide times when booking
Panoramic 360°-degree views
The Radio Tower’s bird’s-eye view spot is possibly the most spectacular way to see Jersey in all seasons, with breathtaking views sweeping from St Ouen’s beach to Corbière lighthouse. With its Bauhaus-inspired lines, this is an unforgettable spot to watch a storm roll in.
