Barge Aground is a boat-shaped seaside folly built in the 1930's has direct access to the beautiful bay of St Ouen's. The decor has a 1930's theme, with walnut flooring and some original furniture. Two identical, adult twin bunks are located in the stern of the property; the kitchen and bathroom leads off the large lounge/diner, which has a double sofa bed in the prow. Double doors open onto a large terrace that overlooks the bay.

In early summer a walk will take you through the field of native orchids and throughout the year the area teems with birdlife - watch out for the Marsh Harriers who live in the area.

Barge Aground is close the many beach front cafes and restaurants. The Jersey surf school is situated further along the bay plus two golf courses.

The Jersey region

The Channel Islands are magical islands in the Bay of St Malo and at the closest point Jersey is just 14 miles from the French coast. Warmed by the waters of the Gulf Stream, spring arrives early and summer lingers on. The weather here consistently tops the UK resort charts for sunshine hours and temperature.

Jersey well known for its magnificent sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, sheltered coves and crystal clear waters. Inland, winding, shaded lanes take you through wooded valleys and patchwork countryside.

St Ouen

Barge Aground is located on the shore of St Ouen's Bay - an expanse of golden sand exposed to the full force of the Atlantic. These waves make St Ouen's Bay one of the best surfing beaches in Europe. The hinterland, of sand dunes, farmland and St Ouen's Pond - the largest natural freshwater pond in the Island - comprises Jersey's only national park.

Jersey is thoroughly British but with a distinct French flavour. Although firecely loyal to the Crown for more than 800 years, the French influence lingers on in local surnames and place and street names. The capital St Helier is packed with continental style bistros, restaurants and pavement cafes.

You do not need a passport to visit the Channel Islands unless you intend taking a day trip to France which is a short hop away by sea or air. You will need proof of identity for flights and sea travel to the Island. As on the UK mainland the currency is sterling but Euros are accepted in many shops and other outlets.

There is plenty to do in the Island from guided walks to a visit to one of the Jersey Heritage's six historic sites, Durrell or the Jersey War Tunnels. Day excursions can also be made to the other islands.

"One-of-a-kind"

This is a truly unique place that is as memorable as some of the sights that we saw around Jersey. Built by a wealthy man, used as a Nazi cantina during the war, as a clinic, and then by the Boy Scou… More

"Charming site; Great location"

This goes down as one of the most unique places I've stayed. The heritage society has done a fantastic job of bringing this 1930's folly back to its art deco roots. Situated right on St. Oue… More
