We have just returned from a week on this beautiful island. There were no reviews for Clifftop Cottages so here is the first. Clifftop Cottages are 5 cotttages of varying size and layout in the Torteval district of Guernsey- on the south coast main road.(When I say main road don't panic -this is Guernsey after all and things are very quiet!) We stayed in the cottage called Le Petit Manoir. We didn't see inside the other cottages but they looked lovely from the outside.
The cottage had everything you could want- except we did not find a hairdryer.The website accurately describes the cottage and facilities. The owners live in the large house attached to Le Petit Manoir Cottage and are on hand should you need anything.
Guernsey itself is a lovely laid back island. Pretty and relaxing. Similar landscape to Jersey but so much quieter. Do get a good map as we got lost on several occasions! Such a lovely place to get lost as the quiet country lanes are a delight.
Guernsey is so well placed for day trips to other small islands. Herm is a short hop away by boat and Sark only 45 minutes on the boat from St Peter Port. Do not miss visiting these places for a real trip back in time- no cars and soooo quiet and peaceful even in the height of August summer holidays. Heavenly- if the sun shines!
We would thoroughly recommend Guernsey and would love to return to Clifftop Cottages in the future. You couldn't find a better base for a self catering holiday.
