    Has anyone explored any of the channel islands?

    If so is it worth the effort?

    Never been there in a motorhome but I remember reading some rules about moving a motorhome round the island. It seemed to read that you could only drive site to site. I know there are a lot of narrow lanes but buses and coaches get around.

    Sure to be so done here with first hand knowledge but also worth a google search maybe ?

    Agree with previous post you must have a prebooked site go straight there and register you can take MH out I think but very good bus service I believe. Also think you need to apply well in advance to get a permit
    Don't think it would be worth the hassle

    Yes notorious for narrow lanes, last time I was there it was noticeable that that buses and refuse trucks had been built narrower than those on the mainland,there are restrictions on large vehicles

    hi. we went to jersey last year in the mh, and yes it is well worth the trip. you are not allowed to travel around in your van, so we hired a car for a week .it was delivered to our site and collected ,no bother.as for the permit, one phone call to our site to book,and they did it all for you.posted out to me within a couple of days. most difficult part was putting it on the windscreen.:Rofl1: we were even met off the ferry by the site owner,all we had to do was follow her to the site (which was beautiful ) I would go back anytime .don't be put off,iv had more problems trying to book sites on the mainland....my advise would be go for it you wont be disappointed:thumb::thumb: oh yeh we took our bikes too..

    Just goes to show what a diverse group we are. We flew there a couple of years ago and hired a car. Although the island is only about 7 miles by 12 we covered about 150 miles so I think you could say we did a thorough job. Despite our best efforts we still found it a pretty bland place to be and we are in no hurry to go back.
