Stocks Hotel

Sark

The Stocks Hotel is a beautifully refurbished country house hotel in a secluded wooded valley in the centre of the island.

Features


Family-run and personally managed, the hotel has been an integral part of Sark’s history for centuries. Indeed, it was once a farm, and the oldest part of the building dates back to 1741.

There is a comfortable lounge and library bar, a main restaurant for fine dining, and a poolside bistro for more casual options. The hotel seamlessly blends heritage, tradition and the island’s style with a contemporary edge. Sark cream teas are served in the gardens amid wild flowers.

A solar-heated outdoor pool has a lovely terrace area, and children have a separate small splash pool. The Venus Room offers massage treatments and there is a small gym. The Stocks Village Shop sells locally made products and some unusual trinkets.

A horse and carriage taxi can be arranged to meet you upon arrival, and you can also arrange tours to other islands.

How to get there

The simplest way to get to Sark is via Guernsey.

By Plane – The island of Guernsey can be reached with direct flights from most major regional airports flying with the following airlines Aurigny, Easyjet and FlyBe. Flight time is as little as 45 minutes.

By Ferry – Condor Ferries operate a daily service throughout the year from Poole and Portsmouth to Guernsey. The fast ferry service from Poole takes approximately three hours whereas the conventional ferry from Portsmouth can take up to twelve hours. You can travel as foot passengers or take your vehicle on-board. You can even take your dog with you – they travel free in your vehicle or you will pay a small supplement as foot passengers.

For ease of travel, there really is no better way to get there. No luggage restrictions, easy check in and you sit back, relax and start your holiday as soon as you board. Seat upgrades are available.

Connecting to Sark – From Guernsey Sark is just a 40 minute ferry crossing away. The Sark Shipping Company operates daily with up to six crossings a day on weekdays and Saturdays and twice daily on Sundays in the peak season months of June, July, August and September. In the shoulder seasons of April and October this is reduced to two or three crossings per day.

Top tips

  • Sark is well known for being an island free of cars and other polluting modes of transport. We can arrange for you to collect a bicycle as you arrive into the island allowing you to get exploring straight away and cycle directly to your hotel. Your luggage will be taken for you so this could not be easier!
  • The island of Sark was the first to receive the “Dark Sky Island” accolade. There is an observatory you can visit to discover our solar system and far away galaxies for yourselves. However on any given clear night you can see so much with the naked eye, no telescopes necessary! We recommend you take sturdy walking shoes and a torch with you in case of such conditions.
  • Sark is undoubtedly a great destination for children, straight out of Enid Blyton’s imagination. The Stocks hotel is a great option for children as family rooms are available and there is a children splash pool. Book early to avoid disappointment.

When To Go


Summer (June-August) – the island boasts some of the UK’s warmest weather and temperatures can reach a comfortable 21 degrees Celsius. This period is peak season and although the weather is favourable, costs and availability can be an issue.

Autumn (September-November) – September to mid-October can still attract some decent weather and it means you can enjoy the island when the tourists have all gone home. The sea temperatures tend to be at their warmest in September.

Winter (December-February) – Low Season. A season with unpredictable weather and very few tourists. Some properties, attractions and shops close during this period. That being said winter on Sark can still be enjoyable, with dramatic coastlines and cosy atmospheric pubs whilst taking advantage of the much lower prices at this time of year. However please bear in mind that travel to Guernsey at this time of the year can often be disrupted due to weather. This is also the best time for deserted beaches, coastal foraging, stormy photography and wild walks without another soul in sight.

Spring (March-May) – A lovely time to visit the island with spring flowers in bloom everywhere and the summer hoards of visitors have not yet arrived. Temperatures are starting to get balmy and a great time for walking the miles of nature trails on offer.
