Alan Rogers Review

‘The island where time stands still’ is an apt description of Sark, one of the smallest inhabited Channel Islands, some 45 minutes from Guernsey by boat. Situated five minutes from the shops and ten from the beach, the Pomme de Chien campsite is small with only 50 pitches, of which eight are occupied by fully equipped tents for rent. The remainder are for campers with their own tents (no caravans, motorcaravans or trailer tents of course). The pitches are large, on fairly level ground, but none have electricity hook-ups. There is a warm welcome from the owners Chris and Jill Rang with the famous charm of Sark.

Although you cannot take your car to the island, the Condor service via Guernsey means you can get there in a little over three hours, either with your own small tent or you could hire one of the site’s own (equipment includes everything you’re likely to need except bedding and a torch). There is no airport, no cars or motorcycles and (apart from a tractor-drawn land train up Harbour Hill) the only transport is by bicycle (which must be hired on the island) or horse-drawn carriage. However, all you are likely to need for a tranquil holiday is provided, with several small shops, pubs, hotels, restaurants, a Tourist Office and even two banks!

Facilities

Modern sanitary block with free hot showers (large, with bench and hook), toilets and washbasins. Dishwashing sinks are outside. Outside washing line. Dogs are not accepted. Torches are necessary. Baggage can be transferred from the harbour to the site by tractor trailer, at a cost of £1 per item.
