Product Details

Product Name: Barge Aground

The iconic Barge Aground is uniquely positioned in the stunning St Ouen’s Bay with direct access to the beach. Built in the 1930s, this is the last of the seaside follies and chalets which once lined the bay. Barge Aground sits in the rugged landscape of the dunes in Jersey’s only national park, close to the nature reserve. In early summer a walk will take you through fields of native orchids and throughout the year the area teems with bird life - watch out for the marsh harriers who live in the area. Accommodating six people, the décor has a 1930s theme, with walnut wooden floors and some original 1930s furniture. Two adult twin bunkrooms are located in the ‘stern’ of the property while the kitchen and bathroom adjoin the large lounge and diner. There is a comfortable double sofa bed in the ‘prow’ of the building sleeping two people. Double doors open onto a large terrace which overlooks the bay and is perfect for watching the sun go down. Once the summer home to Jersey resident, George Lionel Cox, Barge Aground was requisitioned during the German Occupation of the Channel Islands and used as a canteen. It then became a clinic for people with speech disorders and from the 1970s was used by the Scout Association as a camping site and event ground. The folly was restored in 2005 as part of the ‘Forts and Towers’ project; a collaboration to restore historical properties between States of Jersey’s Environment Department, Jersey Tourism and Jersey Heritage. Barge Aground is great for either a family break, with the beach on your doorstep, or a romantic break for two. The property is close to many beachfront cafés and restaurants which are dotted along St Ouen’s Beach with several surf schools close by and two golf courses are also a short distance away.
