    New Year special birthday celebration

    We stayed for 3 nights over a very stormy New Year long weekend. We loved it - we were cosy, comfortable and snug. It’s a delightfully quirky place to stay at any time of the year.

    Cosy relaxing getaway

    This cosy little gem is a perfect place for a relaxing peaceful staycation . It’s been designed really well to accommodate everything you need for your stay .Being in our 60’s we were apprehensive about using the bunk beds but they were easy to access and very comfortable, actually slept better than at home ! The views are amazing and with the high winds we were lucky to see some spectacular tides.and stunning sunsets .Dogs settled in quickly and were delighted to have the beach outside their front door.

Positioned in stunning St Ouen’s Bay, Barge Aground (also known as Seagull) was built in the 1930s and is the last of the traditional seaside follies that once lined the bay. This art deco delight has direct access to the beach. Accommodating six people, Barge Aground’s decor has an authentic 1930s flavour, with walnut wooden floors and some original 1930s furniture.

Uniquely shaped like a barge, the property has two adult twin bunk rooms located in the ‘stern’ of the property, while the kitchen and bathroom are off the large lounge and diner. There is a comfortable double sofa bed in the ‘prow’ of the building. Double doors open onto a large terrace, which overlooks the bay and is perfect for outdoor living or for cocktails whilst the sun goes down.

Barge Aground is great for either a family break or a romantic break for two. The property is close to many beachfront cafes and restaurants along St Ouen’s Bay. There are several surf schools close by and two golf courses are also just a short distance away.
