Fir Tree Chalet

Overview

Fir Tree Chalet is registered with the States of Guernsey Tourist Board and is classified as Three Stars.

Location

The chalet is located in a rural area on the west coast of the island with the longest beach, Vazon, only a minute’s walk away. The location is quiet yet still convenient for all the facilities and amenities that the island has to offer. Situated near the main house, the chalet overlooks the garden and the open country beyond. There is a car parking space just outside the chalet.

Lobby

A lobby (1.5m by 1.5m) leads from the front door into the lounge. There are coat hooks and sufficient space for outdoor shoes to be stored.

Lounge/diner

The lounge / diner is 5.5m long by 3m wide with sideboard, dining table and chairs at one end and a settee, easy chair, coffee table, flatscreen TV with DVD player, radio with CD player, coin operated payphone [telephone number 01481 257039] at the other end. The settee converts to a double bed when 3 or 4 people are staying. Some DVDs are stored in the TV base unit.

French windows at the lounge end overlook the chalet’s garden, the main garden (approx. 60m by 20m) and the adjacent open countryside.

On the right of the dining area is a walk-in cupboard where linen, duvet and pillows for the sofa bed are stored. There is also an iron and ironing board, a vacuum cleaner and a clothes airer in the cupboard.

Kitchen

Off the dining area is an enclosed kitchen with white cupboards and mottled brown work surfaces, electric oven and hob, microwave, extractor hood, fridge and sink unit. Cutlery, glasses, Denby crockery, cooking utensils and kitchen ware are provided.

Shower room

A short corridor leads from the dining area to the fully tiled shower room which is fitted with a toilet, H & C handbasin, and a shower cubicle. The shower room was upgraded in November 2012. Towels are provided.

Bedroom

The bedroom (3.7m by 3m) is off the lounge and contains a double bed, dressing table, a double wardrobe and bedside table. Bed linen and duvets are provided. The window overlooks the garden and provides the same views as through the lounge window.

Facilities

Free WiFi is available.

Heating is provided by a storage heater in the lounge / diner and a mobile convection heater in the bedroom. However the chalet is well insulated and double glazed, and has shown to be snug even in the coldest weather. Similarly it does not become over hot when high summer temperatures occur.

The chalet is fully carpeted except for the kitchen and the shower room which have tiled floors.

The chalet has its own garden but you are welcome to make use of the whole garden if you like. The main garden leads down to a douit (‘stream’ to those who do not know the local Guernsey French language). There is a set of four garden chairs, a table and umbrella for you to be able to enjoy the rural scenery.

There is a washing machine and tumble dryer located in the garage, available 24 hours a day, for use by guests staying in either the chalet or the cottage. On fine days there is a rotary clothes dryer available in the garden.
