Description

The iconic Barge Aground is uniquely positioned in the stunning St Ouen's Bay with direct access to the beach. Built in the 1930s, this is the last of the seaside follies and chalets which once lined the bay.Barge Aground sits in the rugged landscape of the dunes in Jersey's only national park, close to the nature reserve. In early summer a walk will take you through fields of native orchids and throughout the year the area teems with bird life - watch out for the marsh harriers who live in the area.Accommodating six people, the décor has a 1930s theme, with walnut wooden floors and some original 1930s furniture. Two adult twin bunkrooms are located in the 'stern' of the property while the kitchen and bathroom adjoin the large lounge and diner. There is a comfortable double sofa bed in the 'prow' of the building sleeping two people. Double doors open onto a large terrace which overlooks the bay and is perfect for watching the sun go down.

Once the summer home to Jersey resident, George Lionel Cox, Barge Aground was requisitioned during the German Occupation of the Channel Islands and used as a canteen. It then became a clinic for people with speech disorders and from the 1970s was used by the Scout Association as a camping site and event ground. The folly was restored in 2005 as part of the 'Forts and Towers' project; a collaboration to restore historical properties between States of Jersey's Environment Department, Jersey Tourism and Jersey Heritage.Barge Aground is great for either a family break, with the beach on your doorstep, or a romantic break for two. The property is close to many beachfront cafés and restaurants which are dotted along St Ouen's Beach with several surf schools close by and two golf courses are also a short distance away.

Location description from owner

The Channel Islands 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.
