Why We Love This Hotel

  • 16th-century converted farmhouse exuding old-school charm

  • Popular, AA-Rosette-award-winning restaurant serving fresh seafood dishes
  • Outdoor spaces include a garden, patio & heated pool


Set in the quaint country parish of St Martin, this family-owned rural farmhouse property was built on the site of an ancient priory, and acquired its name when the house's owner was kidnapped and held for ransom by Barbary pirates in the 17th century. Now a 3-star hotel, it offers quiet relaxation for nature lovers. Nearby, you'll find one of Guernsey's most beautiful beaches, stimulating South Coast cliff-path walks, country lanes and nature trails. Horse-riding treks and cycle hire can be arranged on request by the hotel.

The stone building exudes old-school charm, with traditional farmhouse oak beams and an open fireplace in the lounge. There's a cosy AA-Rosette-awarded restaurant with discounted half-board prices for meals ordered in advance. A complimentary English or continental breakfast is served from 7.30-9.30am, while light lunches can be ordered from the bar (open all day). For dinner, choose from the 4-course set menu or ála carte, both featuring local produce including plenty of fresh seafood. Garden seating is available in balmier weather, plus there's a heated outdoor pool and patio. Among its many accolades, the restaurant was the Overall Winner in the Guernsey Restaurant Competition (2010).

Warm rooms feature private bathrooms, flat-screen TVs, and tea- and coffee-making facilities, while the 2-bedroom suites offer balconies overlooking the pool area. Self-catering apartments have fully equipped kitchens and sitting rooms. Children under two years stay free of charge, and cots/highchairs are available at no extra cost. Complimentary parking is available.
