Here Robin Mead gives the lowdown on one of the UK's hidden gems - Guernsey - where to stay, what to eat and where to go.
Britain’s sunniest holiday islands are strange because they have a distinctly French feel about them. And no wonder. Guernsey and her sister islands in the group known as the Channel Islands ¬ – Jersey, Alderney, Sark, Herm and Jethou – may be British in both law and loyalty, but geographically they are undoubtedly a part of France. They lie between 60 and 100 miles south of the British mainland, in the inverted “L” formed by the coasts of Normandy and Brittany, and in clear weather the French coast, as little as eight miles away, is clearly visible.
