Five Days in Guernsey

We visit Guernsey at least once a year as my husband’s family reside there, and this summer we were lucky enough to spend an extended amount of time on the island, as usually it’s just a long weekend. Here is how we spent five days in Guernsey:

Day 1
An early morning arrival meant brunch at Hideaway Patisserie and Brasserie followed by an afternoon around the pool for sunshine and shuteye.

Day 2
Castle Cornet was on the agenda for late morning as we wanted to catch the noon day gun and explore the 800 year old castle complete with various museums and incredible views of the coast line and out to sea.

We lunched in St Peter Port at Cafe Delices and then had a wander around the shops in the afternoon sun, before heading back to the house to relax before walking down to Taste of India in L’Eree for a scrumptious dinner.

Day 3
Tuesday was very much a pool day as the weather was so nice, and we needed the down time to relax after a busy work life in London.

Day 4
A clear morning meant alfresco tea at The Imperial Hotel and a walk along the coast line to work up an appetite for lunch with the family at The Queens Inn.

In the evening we ventured out for fish and chips on Cobo beach followed by a drink at The Rockmount, and The Driftwood Inn waiting for the sun to set.

Day 5
Our final day consisted of brunch at Nineteen followed by crazy golf at Pirate Bay Adventure Golf. In the afternoon we visited the German Underground Hospital which was used during WW2 for the medical treatment of those involved in the German occupation of Guernsey…a fascinating yet chilling experience.

To top off our day, and trip, we visited The Farmhouse for a bite of something sweet. In the evening we flew back to London, a little sad that our five days had flown by so fast, but already excited for our next visit to the island.
