The tiny Channel Island of Sark is just three miles long by a mile and a half wide and lies some eighty miles south of the British mainland. Independent and self-governing, the island is home to around six hundred people. There are no cars or street lighting but we do have a school, shops, hotels, restaurants, emergency services and a thriving, working community. Most importantly, Sark has some of the most stunning scenery in the British Isles; towering cliffs, fabulous wildflowers, lush green valleys and a gorgeous coastline. The air is clean, the sea is clear and the residents are friendly.
