Guernsey is great for family walks and picnics. The terrain is relatively gentle and you can vary walks along the coastline with those inland along green lanes. Visit in early summer and you’ll be treated to fabulous wildflower displays.
Small islands have always held an attraction for me. Perhaps it’s because we live as far inland as possible on this island of ours that we often choose to holiday on an island. And if there happens to be another island nearby that’s even better! So it’s probably not surprising that on our recent trip to Guernsey we spent a day on Herm, the smallest of the Channel Islands open to the public.
Fauxquets Valley is located in a rural area in central Guernsey. It offers pitches for tents and camper vans, fully equipped tents and a couple of log cabins to rent. There are a variety of camping areas, with separate areas for large tents or outback camping for those who don’t need an electric hook up.
Despite it being the May Bank Holiday weekend the site was pretty quiet and we were able to choose our own pitch on arrival. We had mixed weather during our stay, with heavy rain on two nights, but the terraced pitch drained well.

One of my lasting memories of our trip to Guernsey are the wild flowers along the verges and adorning the cliff paths.
