    There cannot be a more perfect place to spend time to relax. We were lucky with the weather and tide but having the games was a nice touch

    Really loved staying at the barge but I do feel that an umbrella and a couple of deck chairs would make sitting out side and watching the world go by so much more enjoyable .Looking forward to my next stay .

    A wonderfully quirky property in an unbeatable location.

    This is a wonderfully quirky property of great character. It is very comfortable, and well equipped. And the location is to die for, mere steps from a glorious beach. We loved our stay there.

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.
