OTHER NEARBY ATTRACTIONS
You are very welcome to stay as long as you like with us. However, an average visit usually lasts about an hour. We are nestled in the heart of the beautiful parish of Trinity. Why not combine your visit with a nearby attraction.
A little further afield brings you to the glorious, rugged north coast with its hidden coves, or the golden sands of Royal Bay of Grouville guarded by Mont Orgueil Castle.
