Stocks Hotel


Stocks has been an integral part of Sark history for centuries. There is evidence of old monastic buildings on the site dating from medieval times. The oldest of the current buildings date from circa 1741. The original farmhouse was built in a central, sheltered position, close to fertile land and one of the most reliable wells on Sark.

In 1895 the property was significantly extended and converted into a farmhouse with rooms by Thomas Godfray, who was also Seneschal of Sark for many years.

The hotel takes its name from Mr & Mrs Harry Stock who owned the property in the early 1900’s. For many years Stocks remained a successful farm and evolved to become Sark’s leading hotel under the ownership of the Falle family.

During the Second World War Sark and Stocks were occupied by the German army. Officers, including the Commandant, were billeted at Stocks between 1940 and 1945. Allied commando raids were frequently made via Dixcart Bay and along the valley below Stocks.

A German underground escape tunnel can still to be found behind Stocks. Sark was liberated by the allied forces on 10th May 1945.

The Armorgie family bought Stocks in 1979 and have been involved since.

This 16th-century luxury hotel is located on the peaceful island of Sark, offering individually decorated rooms with elegant furnishings. Guests can enjoy acres of landscaped grounds and a heated swimming pool.

All of the rooms at Stocks Hotel feature solid oak furniture, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. Guests can make use of tea/coffee facilities, hairdryers, and ironing facilities.

Meals are served in the elegant main restaurant, offering fine dining made from fresh, locally sourced produce. Guests can relax at the Poolside Bistro, with outdoor dining in beautiful surroundings. The Smugglers Bar provides a range of drinks and single malt whiskies amongst historic oak beams.

The hotel also includes a hot tub and a small gym.

Numerous scenic walks are available in the rural surroundings of Sark. Bicycle rental is available nearby to enjoy the largely car-free scenery and countryside.
