Where to stay?...
Whlist Guernsey is only 24 square miles, it packs a punch with different landscapes in different parts of the island. The south coast stuns with dramatic cliffs overlooking the bright blue sea and picture-perfect bays. To the east is is the main town of St Peter Port with its' pretty harbour, excellent restaurants and boutique shops lining the cobbled streets. The north coast has small harbours and marinas, swathes of common land, wonderful and easy coastal walks and long stretches of pristine sandy beaches. And the busier west coast is popular for its surfing beach of Vazon and the beaches of Cobo, Grande Rocques and Port Soif.
The Ellingham Cottages is on the south-east coast, nestled between the cliffs and and bays, yet close to St Peter Port. The Ellingham Apartments at Bordeaux is on the north-east coast by Bordeaux Harbour and close to the beaches of L'Ancresse and Pembroke.

However, regardless of where you base yourself, the petite size of Guernsey makes it easy to explore. With over 50 beaches you will always be able to find the perfect spot to read your book, go for a swim, grab an ice-cream, or simply take a nap!
We had an amazing week at Ellingham in our lovely holiday house... The garden and deck were brilliant for relaxing and the kids loved the 'Store' with all the beach toys, games,books and DVDs . Beautiful beaches and walks nearby and super friendly owners...lalalml. Holiday Lettings, 18 Apr 2017
Peaceful haven amidst natural floral wonderland
Good location for numerous excellent restaurants. Many delightful walks from the cottages and others just a short car or bus journey. Breathtaking views, secluded beaches but well-stocked kiosks not far away. Well appointed accommodation with all we needed, friendly welcome. A week was not long enough and can't wait to go back.JPratley. Holiday Lettings, 16 Jun 2016
Comfortable neat, clean and tidy cottage
Fiona and Simon were great hosts and very helpful. The Ellingham cottages are in a nice quite spot in St. Martin which is close to St. Peter Port and easily accessible by bus or a lovely costal walk (1.5 hrs). The cottage was very comfortable, neat, clean and tidy. Thanks Fiona and Simon for helping to make our stay on Guernsey so enjoyable.Brian. AirBnB, 17 Jun 2017
