La Seigneurie Gardens
A horticultural treasure at the heart of Sark
Set between flower-strewn granite walls, mature woodland and the towers and crenellations of one of the most historic buildings in Sark, La Seigneurie Gardens provide a tranquil contrast to the windswept wildness of the island’s beautiful coast. The walled garden is over-flowing with fascinating flowers and shrubs and the beautiful granite walls shelter many plants that can only survive under glass in other parts of the British Isles. Colourful displays in the newly renovated Chapel tell the history of Sark’s Seigneurs and the Seigneurie itself. The fruit and vegetable gardens will inspire those who grow their own produce and our sensory garden aims to stimulate all five senses. Lose yourself in our maze, wander among our rose beds or simply soak up the peaceful atmosphere of these enchanting gardens. La Seigneurie Gardens are the highlight of any visit to the beautiful Channel Island of Sark.
Our café & restaurant
Named after Dame Sibyl Hathaway, the current Seigneur’s great-grandmother, our eatery lies just inside the main gates in a beautifully renovated 16th century carriage house. We have a sunny terrace for al fresco dining and a cosy woodburner inside for those chillier days. We are open every day during the season from 9am to 6pm serving breakfasts, lunches, cream teas and delicious cakes. Evening meals are served on some nights and we always have a great selection of wines, spirits and other drinks including beer made in the island brewery just next door. We are proud to serve local meat and the freshest seafood from Sark’s sparkling waters. Off-season we open during the day for breakfast, lunch and take-away meals most days as well as Saturday evenings and other nights if required.
Please call us to book on 01481 832209.
