You’ll have the guest suite to yourself.
Our self catering cottage with stunning sea views on the beautiful, unspoiled island of Alderney, offers you the chance to relax and enjoy peace and quiet in comfort right by the beach. The cottage, which is adjoining the main house, sleeps 4 max.
Please note that although the location address says Guernsey that is a postal classification only - we are on a totally separate island (much smaller and more beautiful!) but it takes a little more effort to get to us!

The space
We are lucky enough to live in one of the world's most unique and amazing places and offer you the chance to come and experience it too. The "cottage" is actually part of the main house where we live so we will be neighbours during your stay. There are no other neighbours visible from the cottage as we enjoy total privacy. Please note that we are only licenced for 4 people so the use of the sofabed is restricted only to when guests do not wish to share double beds. We can provide extra bedlinen for the sofabed on request. The beds have duvets and there is an extra blanket in each bedroom in case you get cool in the night. We can also provide warmer or cooler duvets and can offer different pillows on request. Beach towels can also be provided upon request.

Guest access
Fully self contained accommodation over two floors with stunning sea views. Guests have their own garden area with seating and a separate elevated picnic table with stunning views

Other things to note
The only way to get to Alderney is to fly. There are cargo boats from the UK which will take passengers but its a long haul and not very comfortable, so Aurigny, our island airline, offers a very reliable and personal service. Don't expect in-flight services, the little planes (now Dorniers as trislanders were retired in 2017) only take 16-19 passengers and are... well, a little noisy!! The island is rather behind the times (we like it that way!) but it does mean that those who are used to everything being open 24/7 will be disappointed, shops close at 5.30 every day except Thursday and there is still half day closing on a Wednesday, although we do have one supermarket that opens all day on a Sunday. We put the basic things in the cottage for your first breakfast, but if you are more organised a food delivery can be ordered to be delivered on the day you arrive which we will take in for you and put in the fridge etc. There are two cash machines on the island but it can be that they may be out of action for a short period so some back-up cash is always a good idea.

The price of £135 per night is all year round. Rates are for the property and do not change depending upon how many people stay.

Location

Alderney, Channel Islands, Guernsey

The island of Alderney in the middle of the English channel is one of the UK's best kept secrets. At only 3 x 1.5 square miles, with a population of under 2000 people, it offers pristine unspoiled and deserted beaches and a very laid back pace of life. There are plenty of places to eat and drink and lots to do so long as you are happy wandering around, walking and enjoying the beautiful views and rural nature of the place. With a milder climate than the rest of the UK, more sunshine, no frosts in winter and no light pollution, it truly feels a whole world away and yet it is only a 40 minute flight from the south coast of England. Most people have heard of Jersey and Guernsey, but not many have heard of Alderney and we'd like to keep it that way, so sshhhh!

I am friendly, happy and love the warmth of the sun on my face. I have lived on Alderney for nearly 18 years and cannot imagine anywhere else in the world I would want to live.
During your stay
Our aim is for our guests and ourselves to enjoy privacy and peace and quiet.
