Tiny island is celebrating the imminent launch of its first community dairy
Sark is the smallest of the Channel Islands and considered the jewel of them all. Already famous for several things; its unspoilt beauty, for having no cars and for being the world's first Dark Skies Island, it now welcomes a new attraction. The tiny island is celebrating the imminent launch of its first community dairy.
From this June, no trip to this stunning rural island hideaway will be complete without meeting the 16 stunning Guernsey dairy cows, seeing the dairy parlour in action and picking up treats from the shop. At the helm are dairy farmers Jason and Katharine Salisbury, who, with 20 years' experience of looking after Channel Island dairy cows in Suffolk, harboured a long held dream of running their own small artisanal farm in Sark.
From 80 applicants worldwide the Salisburys bagged their dream job, combining authentic dairy farming with providing a delightful destination where you can visit and be charmed. The island enjoys a variety of accommodation options from glamping to luxury hotels and everything in between.
For self-catering the beautiful Clos a Joan rental cottages are a must-visit (www.sarkholidaycottages.co.uk) or, for a touch of honeymoon luxury, check out StocksHotel (www.stockshotel.com).
