Barge Aground

Barge Aground in St Ouen's Bay.
1 of 13Barge Aground in St Ouen's Bay.
Bungalow -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
St. Ouen, Jersey, Channel Islands
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 buildin...

This is a truly unique place that is as memorable as some of the sights that we saw around Jersey. Built by a wealthy man, used as a Nazi cantina during the war, as a clinic, and then by the Boy Scouts, this little place...More

About the neighbourhood
Barge Aground is located on the shore of St Ouen's Bay - an expanse of golden sand exposed to the full force of the Atlantic. These waves make St Ouen's Bay one of the best surfing beaches in Europe. The hinterland, of sand dunes, farmland and St Ouen's Pond - the largest natural freshwater pond in the Island - comprises Jersey's only national park.

Jersey is thoroughly British but with a distinct French flavour. Although firecely loyal to the Crown for more than 800 years, the French influence lingers on in local surnames and place and street names. The capital St Helier is packed with continental style bistros, restaurants and pavement cafes.

You do not need a passport to visit the Channel Islands unless you intend taking a day trip to France which is a short hop awa...
