About Sark

Sark is probably one of the UK's most unique destinations: famed for its almost feudal governance and total lack of cars or streetlights. Small in size, but long and thin with very crenelated edges, Sark has a lot of coastline and some of the best places to stay in Sark allow visitors to make the most of this. Perfect to explore on two feet or two wheels....It's definitely worth knowing that here street signs refer to how many minutes it will take you to walk somewhere, rather than the distance in miles.

What Not To Miss

  • Pay a visit to the historic La Seigneurie - an estate dating back to the 17th century. The house and gardens are excellently maintained and visitors can lose themselves in the maze.
  • Ride one of the iconic horse and cart's around the island with highly-informed guides on hand to tell visitors all about the island and the history.
  • Peep out the Window in the Rock - a dramatic gap in the rocks perched precariously above a vertical drop to the sea below - not one for the faint of heart!
  • Explore the island on a bike with some truly stunning roads allowing visitors to experience the real beauty of the place.

The best places to stay on Sark fill up quickly in the peak summer months so book your idyllic summer holiday soon to avoid disappointment.

For luxury

    • Stocks Hotel on Sark is perfect for relaxing in style. Originally built in 1741, this hotel has been refurbished to include all the mod. cons. There's plenty to do from yoga to croquet, to birdwatching, tennis, art classes or even a Scuba course - but the beautiful surrounds make this the perfect place in which to do very little.

    For traditional tranquility

    • La Sablonnerie is a collection of cottages and homes all decorated with a traditional, rural feel on peaceful Sark. The owner/ manager wants it to be a oasis of good living and courtesy and does her best to make sure this sentiment is in everything they do. From the horse drawn carriage that meets you on arrival to the home grown food served in the restaurant.
