Accommodation at Sausmarez Manor - 2 Flats
The only privately owned Historic House open to the public in the Channel Islands that has holiday apartments available, Sausmarez Manor, the Seat of the Seigneurs de Sausmarez since C1204 has two Appartments/Flats.
The ground floor flat will take a couple and one person, and the top floor flat will take a couple,
No beaches are far away, the furthest is 8 miles as the crow flies. The nearest are Fermain, arguably the prettiest in the islands on the east coast, within easy walking distance if you are reasonably fit, and Moulin Huet on the south coast which was painted frequently by Renoir, a bit further than Fermain. Whether you drive or cycle to near these, you will have to walk down the last part on a path, which includes steps for Moulin Huet.
The island boasts some of the finest cliff walks in Britain, some with views over the other islands and France. They are well maintained by the authorities.
Apart from the many banks in St Peter Port, in the parish there are HSBC, Nat West and Lloyds TSB; and Barclays are represented at the post office in the Co-Op supermarket, a ten-minute walk to the south. A hole in the wall is available for all these except Barclays.
The Manor is on one of the higher points of the island and St Peter Port one of the lowest and this should be born in mind when cycling or on foot.
Please check with your mobile phone company to see if your phone is accessible from the Channel Islands as not all mobiles work in Guernsey.
