Glorious Guernsey views from this well-equipped, sea-front campervan site on the island's northern tip.

By the time Fort Doyle was built out on Guernsey’s rocky northern point in 1805, the granite quarry, just a few hundred yards from the fort’s hefty 18-pounder cannons, had already been running for decades. In fact, so treasured was the pearly blue granite mined there, that it was shipped to London and used for the steps of St Paul's Cathedral. Today the quarry is appealing for the beautiful blue of a different kind – flooded by the sea and converted into a serene pleasure boat marina. Rocky flanks embrace the waters like ginormous natural arms, shielding it from waves and storms, and the grass-topped granite is reflected in the mirror-like surface. On a still summers day the place is sublime.

On the land next to the marina, overlooking the yachts and boats that bob in a gentle breeze, the Beaucette Marina Campervan site occupies a purpose-made, landscaped stretch of grass. There are, in total, just eight pitches, each with electricity and welcoming campervans and motor homes only. Beyond each pitch and apron of flat grass extends, with ample room for you to set out your picnic blanket or for little ones to play ball games, and beyond that is the marina itself.

Campers have access to the Beaucette Marina building, where there are clean, modern showers and toilets in the large wash-rooms. Upstairs the marina also has an award-winning restaurant. James Scowen, the chef there, whips up delicious fish and crab dishes, freshly in from the nearby harbour, and the dining room offers the perfect perch for enjoying the view – the islands of Alderney, Herm, Jethou, Sark and, at times, Jersey can all be seen on a clear day. Boats slowly manoeuvre their way through the marina entrance, blown open with dynamite by The Royal Engineers in 1969, and fishing vessels speckle the blue horizon as it merges into the sky.

It’s actually only relatively recently that the Guernsey has been opened up to campervans. The campsite supply you with a ‘motor home permit’ when you arrive that you have to display on your dashboard as you amble along the quiet country roads. You can cross the entire island in around half an hour, so there’s certainly no rush. Instead, it pays to keep things slow, head off on foot and really take in the nooks and crannies of this sunny Channel Isle. From the 13th-century Castle Cornet in the historic town of St Peter Port to cliff top Pleinmont Nature Reserve on the island’s southern tip, there’s something around every corner.
