Competition - Herm


Win a Three-Night Break in Beautiful Herm Island

Herm Island, one of the beautiful Channel Islands, is described by many as the hidden gem in the British Isles’ crown. With no cars, no crowds and definitely no stress, it is the perfect place for a truly relaxing holiday. Proving that the best things come in small packages, at just 1.5 miles long and less than half a mile wide, the coastline can be circumnavigated on foot in just a couple of hours.

The prize for the winner and their guest will include return flights with Aurigny Air Services, boat transfers from St Peter Port harbour and three nights’ dinner, bed & breakfast at The White House Hotel, which offers glorious views of the sea and incredible sunsets.

This country house-style hotel has two restaurants, a snug bar, cosy lounge and award-winning gardens with swimming pool.

All menus are created using seasonal, local produce and foraged ingredients wherever possible and the hotel boasts one of the finest wine lists in the Channel Islands.

The hotel is the perfect base to explore Herm, with beautiful, unspoilt beaches, high cliffs, puffin colonies and winding, flower-lined paths. The picturesque Harbour Village is the hub of island life, where you can enjoy delicious food at The Mermaid Tavern or Ship Inn, or shop at the well-stocked gift shops.
