Cruise by Brecqhou Cruises
Whilst one of the smallest Channel Islands, at just 74 acres in size, the islet of Brecqhou has a big story to tell. A tenement of Sark, Brecqhou has a historically feudal connection to its neighbouring island, and ‘ownership’ of the islet had long been debated until the Barclay brothers purchased it in the early 90s and became the only inhabitants.
As you sail by, you understand why so many would wish to stake claim to Brecqhou. It’s a little piece of paradise in the Channel, an almost completely untouched land of rocky coves, rugged rock formations and verdant countryside rising from the water. The only man-made marks are those created by the Barclay’s; look out for the impressive castle, their elegant residence and the winding pathways that weave along the islet’s shores.
