Things to do on a grey day – north coast walk #1

Yes, even in Jersey we get grey days! Yesterday (Sunday) was a case in point as autumn finally arrived in our fair Isle. What I can recommend, especially on a cloudy and bracing Sunday, is a walk along the north coast and lunch in one of the fine pubs along there.

I didn’t have my camera with me yesterday but my friend did and took these picture when walking the cliff path walk from Devil’s Hole, through Mourier Valley and along to Sorel Point – see map at the end of this post.

To give you an idea, going from The Priory Inn pub at the Devil’s Hole car park down through Mourier Valley and up the other side takes about half an hour at a gentle pace. The paths are fine for children, but make sure you go across Mourier Valley and not down to it towards the sea as there’s a shear drop or two there.

Alternatively, you can just nip down to Devil’s Hole (but plenty of steps on the way back up).

You’ll find pubs in Devil’s Hole car park (the Priory Inn, with good children’s area), Rozel, Grève de Lecq, St John’s (and the nearby Farm House – renamed from L’Auberge du Nord, family friendly), and more.

Enjoy!
