On our family holiday this year we were lucky enough to visit Jersey for a third time I love this little island, where time stands still and everyone is polite and the traffic filters in turn at roundabouts.
As we were there for a couple of weeks, we decided the visit Sark, which actually falls under the jurisdiction of Guernsey. I’ve seen holiday programmes on Sark and have always wanted to visit. The main attraction being the total ban on cars etc. If you want to get around on Sark you walk, hire a bike or take a horse and wagon tour.
We caught the boat early one morning and after a horrendous sea crossing where most people were seasick we finally arrived! After I had a drink of water (a cafe owner suggested I pick some mint from her garden to flavour the water!), we walked around.
We had planned beforehand to visit La Seigneurie gardens which were absolutely amazing. Honestly if I lived in Sark I would visit these gardens daily. These beautiful walled gardens were small but perfectly formed. Lots of seasonal interest and eye catching plants and beautiful flowers, an obvious micro climate. I loved it and could have stayed all day.
It was a very peaceful and tranquil. Also the gardens were immaculate and so well maintained. Not a weed in sight! Plus there was a little cafe for a cup of tea after your visit.
All in all, despite the sea sickness I absolute loved Sark and La Seigneurie was the main highlight of the day
If you are lucky enough to visit the beautiful Channel Islands, then please visit!
