I stayed at the cottage with my 4 year old daughter from the 2nd of August to the 9th. It was very hard to find, I drove around for an hour searching for it and none of the locals had heard of the property. The website has the location as Havre Des Pas Jersey, there is no postal code or accurate address on the website so you can't search for it using sat nav or AA route finder. The cottage is on the bay of Havre Des Pas but is actually on Mount Bingham and the parking for the cottage is located at the TA center a couple of minutes away from the cottage. Jersey Heritage need to make this place easier to find because the locals can't even find it.
The cottage itself has been wonderfully renovated, although not sure why they would put separate taps in the bathroom sink and not mixer taps? This property worked ok for us but it is not really ideal for families with children. To get to the bathroom you have to walk through the one bedroom so you would have no privacy and the garden is not suitable for unattended children, it is on the edge of the bay and very high up. You should also be aware that none of the windows in this property face directly to the sea, you can see the sea if the shutters are open and you are walking about inside but it's not clearly visible. It's also not really ideal to sleep with these windows open as it is a ground floor property in a town, although crime is minimal in St Helier I did not feel safe sleeping with open windows and that is a bit of a problem in the summer and on holiday, I wanted to hear and smell the sea when I woke up but instead we were rather shut in, we did get to eat breakfast in the garden with the view and that did make up for it. It's a lovely property but I would say more suitable for a young couple that want the best of being close to restaurants and bars but also sea, I would suggest a more rural property for a family.
