Staying in Jersey Heritage Cottages

Fully furnished with well-equipped kitchens, 100% cotton bed linen and bath towels, with modern bathrooms. Tea, coffee, and sugar are all provided, along with a small array of toiletries – and for those guests visiting from outside the island, Jersey Heritage provides a welcome pack of Genuine Jersey milk, bread, and butter.

Many properties also feature a log burning stove or open fires, for which they offer a supply of wood. Due to the remote location of some properties, there is not always Wi-Fi or phone signal available.

However, fear not if you need entertainment as Jersey Heritage has made sure to include a DVD player and TV screen, even if the aerial signal isn’t sufficient to watch live television.

Self-Catering Heritage Holiday Cottages

Some tips for what to bring with you on your self-catering cottage adventure:

  • A beach bag, to make sure you’re prepared for every beach trip you take on the island
  •  Any water sports equipment, whether this be a surfboard, bodyboard, wetsuit or kayak for you to explore the Jersey waters
  • Wellies can be useful year-round in Jersey, as there are many amazing walks under wooded canopies and through fields
  •  A book – a must for any holiday, you can’t beat curling up by the fire with a good read
  • Torches are always a good idea, as a just-in-case back up or if you wish to explore the Jersey countryside at night

4 Heritage Accommodation ‘Musts’

When staying out east at Seymour Tower, study the tide tables (or ask a local for some advice) and walk out along the beach with the tide. You can find some of the island’s best low-water fishing, which is great fun for families, as children can learn about the unique ecosystems in the bay.

At Rocco Tower, one of the least equipped properties, you are isolated from the island at anything past mid-tide. It’s perfect for an escape from civilisation for a night or two, and is great for water adventures like SUP-ing and kayaking when the swell is low.

L’Etaquerel Fort, on the north-east coast of Jersey, is the definition of a rugged adventure. Equipped for 40 guests, take it back to basics within your very own, drawbridge-protected fort.

Elizabeth Castle, the closest Heritage property to the town of St Helier, can be walked to at low tide, and is cut off from the land at high tide. Here, you can climb and explore to your heart’s content, and discover the history of Jersey during WW2.
