The decision to enjoy a restful stay at La Vaurocque offers a unique opportunity to experience a combination of atmosphere and nature. Situated at the highest point in the Bailiwick of Guernsey, from where views towards Jersey are most spectacular, just close to the Island’s windmill constructed in 1571 and standing at 374 feet above sea level.
La Vaurocque is one of the original tenements and was settled by Thomas de Carteret following the grant of the fief dated 1565 by Queen Elizabeth II to Helier de Carteret. The ancient stones evidence the early works of Thomas who somehow managed to haul them into place alongside the road to the mill forming the boundary of his fields (it is thought these stones were part of prehistoric structures taking advantage of the dominating geographic location).
