“Fort Leicester - Interesting property”

We have stayed in Jersey Heritage properties before and had a brilliant time. We thought we would try Fort Leicester as our original choices were already booked. We booked via the internet. As usual easy booking and payment, all details, driving instructions etc emailed quickly. The pictures on the internet were very small so could not see that the property was in two different buildings and this was not said on the Jersey Heritage website. We knew that all rooms were externally accessed which did not cause any problems, it was quite funny having to go outside to the loo in the middle of the night! With the bedrooms being in a separate building this proved difficult with a young child as you can't hear them if they call once they are in bed and can't see if they have got up and gone outside. The other thing that was not mentioned is that the water supply is from a bore hole, and the water is unfit to drink, so, we had to buy bottled water. This may not have stopped us booking but we had already done our food shop before we got there. At night the seagulls are very noisy and if there are night fishermen on the quay the noise carries up to the bedroom, this would only effect you if you are a light sleeper. We did have some young lad hold his own memorial service to Amy Winehouse at 0100hrs one evening which woke me up. All in all this is a good experience for a couple or family with older children.

Staying at Fort Leicester was truly an amazing experience. Its location provided breathtaking views and a chance to step back in history.

The Fort was very clean and all appeared to be fitted out recently so whilst the exterior of the Fort appeared old the interior of the property was lovely and new.

Something I did not expect was that the rooms, living area and bathroom are not in any way connected. So you do need to walk outdoors to access the different areas of the Fort but this all adds to its charm. Also it is slightly out of town however given the island is quite small, this wasn't a problem. But of course you do need a car.

My friends and I truly loved staying at Fort Leicester. It will be a weekend we never forget!
