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 double (or twin) 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.
