About Barneville Carteret
Two seaside resort towns merged into one, the Barneville section was originally the bit on the hill and Carteret the port bit - right opposite the island of Jersey. Our pick of the best places to stay in Barneville-Carteret are mainly situated close to the beach and port.
Barneville dates back to the Middle Ages, so there are some interesting medieval ruins about town, including the old protecting walls and a motte-and-bailey castle behind the church on the hill. The other fortifications you'll see are those of the German Atlantic Wall, built in 1940.
During the Belle Epoque, when seaside holidays really came into vogue, Barneville and Carteret became bustling resort towns. In part because of beautiful Barneville beach - now a Blue Flag beach - and pretty fishing port. They were officially joined in 1965.
The Saturday market is in old Barneville, and this is also where you can find the city's main shops and services.
