    Great stay

    We loved our little weekend stay here. Loves hearing the wind and rain on the windows and having the sea view. Very well equipped, everything we needed. Really cosy, comfy beds.

    Mums & Daughters Winter Stay

    What a fabulous stay at La Crete Fort. It was blowing a gale in the bay but it felt so warm and snug in the fort. It’s fantastically well equipped and stylishly decorated. The sea views, out to Giffard Bay on one side and Bonne Nuit Bay on the other, are absolutely stunning.

    Brilliant place for a girls weekend

    Five girls in our thirties, absolutely loved our two night stay at the fort, even in the middle of January. We were very lucky with the weather, so got to enjoy the outdoor area which overlooks the bay.

    The best possible location to see in the New Year!

    Whether it be: Sitting on the window sill listening to the waves raking the gravel up and down the shore. Snuggled in a warm coat on the balcony, sipping hot chocolate, whilst taking in the view of the lights of Bonne Nuit harbour. Having a relaxing lie-in in an extremely comfortable bed. Cooking a sumptuous roast dinner in the well equipped kitchen before serving it in the most grand dining room.

Originally part of the fortifications of the Island, La Crête Fort is now a tranquil property built on Jersey’s rugged north coast, well off the beaten track. Full of character, this unique property dates from 1830 and is renovated throughout.

The Fort has a king bedroom, a single bedroom and spacious shower room and toilet, which are accessed through the single bedroom. There is a large lounge/diner with a double sofa bed, then a flight of stone steps will take you up to a large granite room with a vaulted ceiling with access to a secluded and sheltered private garden terrace.

Due to its remote location there is no TV or Wi-Fi reception in La Crête Fort. The property is also set on different levels, all accessed via granite or concrete steps.
