Welcome to Herm

Herm Island is 3 miles from the coast of Guernsey and measures just a mile and a half long and half a mile wide. Herm is the perfect place to stay for a truly relaxing channel island holiday and is ideal for families and anyone wanting to "get away from it all". Once on our paradise island enjoy our beautiful unspoilt beaches and safe, clean pollution-free environment. There are no cars, no crowds and definitely no stress.

You can visit Herm for the day or, better still, choose to stay on the Island where we can offer a variety of accommodation designed to suit all tastes. You could opt to stay in one of our comfortable self catering cottages, allowing you to sample island life while still giving you the freedom to come and go as you please. You could choose to be pampered at The White House Hotel, the only hotel on the Island, where there are no telephones, televisions or clocks.

Enjoy well-appointed bedrooms, an excellent restaurant and outstanding sea views. Alternatively you can camp on Herm Island in one of our modern, well-equipped family size tents or choose to pitch your own tent. Our campsite boasts glorious views across to Sark and the French coast.

Cage fungi

Cage funghi_Clathrus ruber_Cage Stinkhorn

The fungi initially appears like a whitish ‘egg’ which has a delicate, leathery outer membrane that encloses the compressed lattice.  As the egg ruptures the cage fungi expands and can reach heights of up to 20 cm.  You might have guessed from its family name that it has a smell to it!  This odour, like rotting meat attracts flies and insects which then distribute the microscopic spores around.  The spore produces a mycelium, which is like a big bundle of roots for feeding on decaying, woody, plant stuff.  And so it goes on.

New family in Herm

New family arrive in Herm Sept 2014

It is the first time that swallows have nested in the tunnel.  It may be because their usual site in the hay barn wasn’t quite so easy to access due to the re-roofing project.  Some of the swallows didn’t seem to mind the noise going and built their nests in the barn underneath the temporary barn ceiling.  It will be interesting to see if they return to the nest in the tunnel next spring.
