Route de Grande Port, St Pierre du Bois, GY7 9HP
Charming fisherman’s cottage which has been sympathetically renovated and extended by previous owners to create a beautiful home on the West coast.
The property is offered in immaculate condition with spacious and bright accommodation, the lounge opens on to a pagoda covered patio with a sunken seating area ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining which over looks the lawned garden. To the front there is parking and a decked area which really makes the most of the properties’ position with panoramic views over Pleinmont, Hanois Lighthouse, Lihou Island and the shingle bank.
Step back a pace into rural St Peter’s, where the family next door will have owned the same house for generations. Tradition and the beauty of these houses go some way to explain why, and strict planning measures allow limited opportunity for new residents wanting to share this sylvan idyll.
St Peter’s has two coastlines – dramatic high cliffs to the South, with an exceptional stretch of the cliff-path network, and sandy beaches to the West that, with Torteval, host the annual Rocquaine Regatta (Henley, it’s not!). At the far end of L’Eree beach is the tidal island of Lihou and the adjacent nature reserve that form Guernsey’s first RAMSAR site. Also hereabouts are the showground fields for the annual two-day West Show, an agricultural and side-show extravaganza.Read our parish guide
