A group of 12 adults visited the tower for a weekend birthday celebration. The accommodation was quirky, spotless and a pleasure to stay in, and that was in the winter......I can only imagine what it would be like in the summer!
We have just spent a weekend at Kempt Tower. What an amazing experience. Built in 1834 this Tower has been sensitively restored to create a stunning and unique self-catering property. We were concerned that booking it in January it would be on the chilly side. We walked in and were amazed. It was really warm and cosy, the heating was already on and this included the underfloor heating in the bathroom. We watched the sunset from the roof terrace, which gave us a 360 degree view of St Ouens. We then put the log burning stove on and enjoyed a couple of glasses of wine. The dining table seated 12 comfortably and we sat down to a lovely meal with friends. The evening was spent on the spacious settees in front of the log burning stove chatting and playing silly games! The bunk beds were made up with crisp white sheets and white bath towels were also provided. We all slept soundly and woke up early to watch the sunrise from the roof terrace while enjoying a bacon butty and hot mug of coffee. Hot showers were followed by a fresh brisk walk along the top of the wall in St Ouens, dodging the waves as they came over the wall. Back to the Tower for a lovely seafood lunch and then a relaxing afternoon snuggled on the sofa's in front of the stove and TV.
Then unfortunately back to reality..........
What a lovely weekend, we would highly recommend it for family's or a group of adults. Ideal for locals or for visitors. A truly wonderful experience which will not be forgotten. We have all been chatting and may make it an annual experience. Many thanks Jersey Heritage.
