ELIZABETH CASTLE APARTMENT
BE KING OF YOUR OWN 15TH CENTURY CASTLE A MILE OFF THE COAST OF JERSEY
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 are visiting from outside of the Island, we suggest planning your travel arrangements around the tide to ensure a swift passage back to shore.
