Close to St Catherine’s Woods, the impressive stretch of St Catherine’s Breakwater and secluded beaches, the historic Archirondel Tower is a perfect coastal base for exploring Jersey. Built on a rocky outcrop in St Catherine’s Bay in 1792, the Tower was originally a garrison for artillery soldiers. It has been recently refurbished to accommodate 2 adults and 2 children.

Split over four levels, with a large terrace at ground level and a roof terrace overlooking the beautiful bay of Archirondel, the Tower is ideal for those looking for adventures, with the sea on your doorstep.

Inside the Tower, the ground floor comprises a beautiful vaulted-ceiling kitchen and dining area with a dining table. A very narrow spiral staircase takes you up to a sleeping area (which can also be accessed using external metal stairs) with one double bed and two single sofa beds. The staircase then continues up to the cosy living space with a log-burning stove for cosy evenings. The roof terrace, accessed from the living space, has sweeping, uninterrupted views across the bay.

If you enjoy water sports the eastern coast of Jersey has many secluded bays to explore. There is also a cafe 100 yards away from the Tower, perfect for early morning refuelling before you go on your next adventure around the Island.
