Escape to Guernsey this Christmas for a quintessential festive getaway. Staying in an 18th century country house just a stroll from the centre of the island’s capital, you have many opportunities on offer; learn St Peter Port’s story; visit one of the prettiest harbours in Europe; enjoy the wonderful views along the rugged cliff paths and sweeping bays that inspired Renoir; or amble through the cobbled streets to find shops full of traditional gifts, games and treats. Take a break from exploring to be pampered with delicious traditional feasts and festive entertainment, as you celebrate Christmas with your loved ones and new friends.
