Good Hotel Guide Review
‘The distilled essence of Sark – relaxed, laid-back and tranquil – this remains a most charming place.’ Guide readers this year gave in willingly to the allure of this whitewashed 16th-century farmhouse, approached via horse-drawn carriage on the rugged, car-free island. Elizabeth Perrée, the owner, is the soul of the place. Perrée père and mère opened their small guest house in 1948 with just three rooms; today, guests find rustic accommodation in the rose-swagged main building and a collection of nearby cottages. ‘For those who are unconcerned about the absence of TV, radio and Wi-Fi’, it is, in a word, ‘paradise’. Take a dip in the rock pools of Venus and Adonis, sunbathe or snorkel; alternatively, like some Guide correspondents, simply ‘sit and read, and enjoy wonderful sea views’. ‘We took a boat ride around the island on a calm day, and the boatman kindly took my wife up and down the harbour hill in the bucket of his tractor. Such larks!’ Return with an appetite for Colin Day’s ‘superb cooking’ – perhaps lobster thermidor or spring lamb and vegetables from the family farm. On warm nights, eat outdoors; on chillier days, gather by the fire in the beamed lounge. (Robert Cooper, JB)
