Sitting one mile off the coast of Jersey’s main town of St Helier, the Castle apartment sits within one of Jersey’s most iconic locations surrounded by the sea twice a day. To stay at Elizabeth Castle is an adventure not to be missed. Sitting one mile off the coast of Jersey’s main town of St Helier, the Castle apartment sits within one of Jersey’s most iconic locations surrounded by the sea twice a day. Elizabeth Castle is available April to October. Elizabeth Castle Apartment is for those who would rather catch their dinner off the breakwater rather than go to a restaurant in central St Helier. Cut off to the mainland by the tide at least twice a day, ferry transport is only available between April-November, when the Castle is open as a visitor attraction, from 10am-5pm. While it is possible to walk back and forth on the low tide, no other cars are permitted to drive across the beach to the Castle. Elizabeth Castle dates from around 1590 when work was first started on the rocky outcrop and was once home to Sir Walter Raleigh while he was Governor of Jersey and King Charles II who sought refuge during the English Civil War. The Castle now sits within Jersey’s National Park. The apartment, split over two levels, overlooks the parade ground and the Governor’s House where both Sir Walter Raleigh and King Charles II stayed. With a recently refurbished kitchen and shower room on the lower level, the apartment sleeps up to six people with a double sofa bed in the living area, and upstairs a spacious bedroom with one double and two single beds. Every day is a new adventure at Elizabeth Castle and guests who stay at the apartment always find something new to explore; climbing the battlements, exploring the turrets and bunkers, fishing on the Castle’s private beach when the tide is low or discovering the 550 AD Hermitage where it’s thought Saint Helier once lived. If you would like to book, we strongly suggest speaking to our team first so we can advise you on the tides during your stay and when it is best to access. If you are visiting from outside of the Island, we suggest planning your travel arrangements around the tide to ensure a swift passage back to shore.

A unique accommodation experience for friends, families and other groups, Kempt Tower represents the opportunity to stay right in the Jersey National Park, within an architecturally unique piece of local history. Inside, the property is arranged on an open-plan basis, with two distinct storeys. On the ground floor you’ll find a comprehensive modern kitchen, with all of the facilities you’ll need to cook up a feast for a hungry group, fresh in from a day of water sports. On the same floor, there’s a beautiful dining area and several small bathrooms. Upstairs, the entire extraordinary space has been converted into an open plan sleeping chamber, made up of four double beds, each with a single bed as a bunk above them. In total, twelve guests can be accommodated. In the same space, a living room type area has been created, set up with comfortable modern furniture and a television. It shares the same swirling exposed brick walls and hardwood floor, lending the entire space a distinctive industrial bunker-style aesthetic. This is a property which really has to be seen in order to be fully appreciated; circular walls and chic urban design make this a living experience unlike anything you’ve ever known. The roof terrace is yet another treat, with its substantial views of the sea and national park. Whatever the season, Kempt Tower is a brilliant destination, whether you spend your time surfing, hiking, or simply grilling on the roof terrace, taking in the 360 degree views. In a typical day, rise early and take a dawn plunge in the glittering Jersey sea, enjoy a cup of coffee on the roof terrace and take a lengthy walk through the marshes of the National Park, before ending with a pint of local ale, and walking the short distance home for a delicious fish barbecue on the roof terrace, followed by a lengthy chat around the wood-burning stove. Jersey is an outdoors paradise, popular with swimmers, sailors, windsurfers and mountain bike enthusiasts. Kempt Tower is in a designated National Park, so you can look forward to clear starry skies, extraordinary birdwatching and safe landscapes for children and animals. That said, you’re right on the beach, and also only a short distance away from the quaint pubs, independent shops and excellent local restaurants for which Jersey is famed.
