Staycations at Greenhills: The weekend escape that's closer to home

28 Jun 2019

For the best part of 100 years, Jersey has been a haven for British and European holidaymakers. And with its pristine white sand beaches, rich history and fantastic food and drink, it's easy to see why.

Locals are the first to champion Jersey's unique beauty, but the majority of islanders' holidays are spent across the channel on the continent. If you've visited St Malo more often than Seymour Tower, you're not alone.

But you don't have to leave the island to escape the everyday. Many islanders are taking advantage of the island they love so much for their latest holiday, embarking on a staycation right here in Jersey.

Greenhills' secluded location makes it a great option for staycationers looking to escape the their everyday lives whilst staying close to home. We post all our last minute weekend room deals on our blog and Facebook page.

Below are some of our tips to enjoy a staycation in Jersey.

Leave your car at home

There really is no better way to explore the island than by bicycle. So leave your car at home, pack a few essentials into a bag and cycle to Greenhills to start your staycation.

The hotel is situated just off the St Peter's Valley cycle track making cycling to and from us a relaxing experience.

Explore country lanes

Take your bike or pull on a pair of trainers and explore the lanes you've never ventured down. There's something refreshing about getting lost in the island you know so well. 

Visit the War Tunnels (again)

Most locals have visited the War Tunnels in the past. But in 2019 the former underground hospital is a very different experience from how it was a decade ago. New interactive and sensory exhibitions help bring the island's occupation to life. We encourage anyone who hasn't been for a few years to take a look again.

Eat the local delicacies

We're blessed to have such a wide range of international cuisine available to us. But during summer (and your staycation) it's all about Jersey's seasonal delicacies. Local crab, lobster, scallops and Royals all feature heavily on our restaurant menus.

Whether you're after a quick bite before heading out, or a more formal dinner, we've got the menu to suit.
