Self catering holidays on the island of Jersey
Mont es Croix cottage is located at about 300 yards up the hill from St Brelades Church. The original cottage was a single story dwelling with a thached roof, built in the mid 17th century. There is an early marriage stone above the door, beach stones were used for the window lintels and sides, and a large gable stone marks the original height of the cottage.
In front of the cottage there is a small lawn and graveled area separated by an old stone lined well. This is a beautiful sheltered area to catch the morning sun.
To the rear of the cottage, there is ample parking. The garden looks out on to agricultural fields and woodland where red squirrels, pheasants and poultry roam the area. There is a table and seating in this area so you can catch the evening sun while enjoying a meal.
The kitchen is out-fitted with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, 5 ring cooker, microwave and a washer/dryer.
In the diningroom there is an extendable table and 6 chairs. The drawing room has a large open fireplace with a chiminaria that can be lit. The small alcove in the fireplace is a typical 17th century salt store.
