Camping on Sark – La Valette campsite review
The luggage tractor drops off & picks up your luggage for £3.00 a bag each way. Tip: remember to label each piece of luggage with Jersey or Guernsey for your return trip as ferries go to each from Le Creux harbour.
If you’re a 5 star freak or can’t do basic facilities then this isn’t for you but if you’re looking for affordable accommodation with spectacular panoramic sea views and want to meet lovely locals with fascinating stories of old then this place is perfect spot for families.

Getting to yourself to campsite on Sark
The harbour in Sark is at the bottom of a steep hill so there is a tractor train that will take you up to the main Street (The Avenue) in Sark whereupon you can walk to your accommodation (or hike bikes on The Avenue and cycle).
The tractor train costs £1.20 for adults and 60p for children. Collect your bikes from whichever cycle hire you’ve booked with and then follow the signs to the lighthouse & La Valette campsite.

Where to stay in Jersey: Review of La Ferme du Tocque
This place looks dreamy. I have never thought about visiting as it wasn’t even on my radar. But, I am adding it to our bucketlist. It would be great to spend time over there after visiting Normandy which is already on our list 😉
I’m so glad you’ve put it on your bucklist Mama Munchkin, it would perfectly fit with your Normandy trip as you can even catch a ferry direct to Sark from St Malo if you didn’t have time to take in Jersey or Guernsey (we loved Jersey also – def worth a visit – see our blog post https://thefamilyfreestylers.com/blog/top-10-things-to-do-in-jersey-with-kids-aged-5)
So we’re trying to be smart and not blow our entire vacation budget in one fell swoop by looking for things we know we need for our first trips,
