Trinity, Jersey, Channel Islands
Spread over three levels, this magnificent 19th century fort sits above the picturesque harbour of Bouley Bay and has a private garden and terrace.

Named after the Earl of Leicester, a favourite of Queen Elizabeth I, Fort Leicester has military history dating back to the late 16th century. The Fort sits above the picturesque harbour of Bouley Bay and has been restored to reflect its diverse military history.

The Fort housed single cannon when it was constructed in the 16th century, nearly 50 years after an invasion attempt on Jersey from France. Another half a century later a boulevard and battery platform was installed as part of Jersey's northern defence plan but was deemed inadequate by the Island's Lieutenant Governor who instructed the battery to become a fort. Numerous guns were positioned at the Fort which required the s...

A group of us booked the fort for a long weekend away. We love old historical buildings, so this was right up our street. Also there's nothing like waking up to the sound of the waves lapping in the bay directly below and the views...More

About the neighbourhood
Bouley Bay is located on Jersey's north coast at the base of a winding hill used occasionally in the summer for hill climb races. The property is ideally located on Jersey's north coast cliff path network and close to water sport activities in the bay.

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 away by sea or air. You will need proof of identity for flights and sea travel to the Island. As on the UK main...
