The Bailiwick of Guernsey region
The magical island of Alderney is the most northerly of the Channel Islands, situated only 8 miles from France. Although small in size, only 3.5 miles long by 1.5 miles wide, there is much on offer in this little gem.
Relax ... unwind ... and enjoy... Alderney's mild climate and wonderfully tranquil, slower pace of life. Surrounded by magnificent beaches, over 50 miles of walkways and coastal paths, plus numerous Forts and WW2 Bunkers reminiscent of a more turbulent past, the scenery is breathtaking.
Well over 20 bars, restaurants and cafes ensure there is something delicious to suit all tastes and budgets, with mouthwatering locally caught seafood a particular speciality to Alderney.
Widely considered to be the "Jewel in the Crown", Alderney is well worth a visit. But with so many fabulous sights to see and things to do, be assured . . . one visit is never enough !!!!
Situated in an elevated location within the popular Braye Bay area, Pipedreamer House commands breathtaking views over Braye Beach, only 5 minutes walk away, with far reaching views over the Breakwater to the English Channel.
The delightful Harbour Area is a must to visit, not only for the boating enthusiasts, but with an excellent variety of bars, restaurants, hotels and shops to hand.
Alderney’s 9 hole Golf course is only minutes away, considered to be one of the most scenic and testing courses in the Channel Islands, with alternate tees adding distance and variety to each hole making it an overall, challenging 18 hole course.
The charming town of St Anne is approximately 20 minutes walk up the hill, providing a further selection of interesting shops, hotels, restaurants, bars and banks. The narrow, winding, cobbled streets are an absolute joy to meander through, many with French names providing a pleasing reminder of Alderney's close proximity to France.

Absolutely fantastic holiday, from the moment we walked through the door we all felt relaxed. The property is wonderful, only draw back the kitchen a little high tech for the amount of people going in… More
I am absolutely delighted that you all had such a fantastic, relaxing time and that Pipedreamer ticked the boxes for you, providing you with such a comfortable and restful stay. I am however curious as to what the draw back was regarding the kitchen. There were eight in your party, the maximum we can accommodate, and the kitchen is generously equipped with two ovens, a grill, microwave, 5 ring gas hob, fridge, freezer, wine cooler, full size dishwasher plus the usual kettle, toaster, pots, pans, ample quality crockery etc. We continually strive to improve our facilities and very much look forward to your return again next summer! Fingers crossed we can order up some more spectacular weather again for then! :-)

Absolutely fantastic. The photo shows how wonderful, cosy and spacious the house. Reality was even better. We came here for a family reunion and had a super time. We sat on the balcony when the s… More
Thank you for your extremely kind comments, we are delighted you had such an enjoyable time and that Pipedreamer suited your family requirements so well. From what you say, our motto 'Relax..

"Beautiful House and location"
Myself and my family have recently returned from spending Christmas and New Year at Pipedreamer, the house itself is no stranger to us as it was my nieces childhood home and it was lovely for her to g… More
We are delighted to have helped make your Christmas and New Year break so enjoyable and to re-acquaint you and your relatives with their former home. I'm so pleased you all had such a lovely time together!
The house is now about eight years old and we have enjoyed tweaking it here and there to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of our guests. We can't do much about the steep hill unfortunately, but it does have one huge advantage... the view is SOOOO worth it when you get to our house at the top!!
Alderney is intoxicating at any time of the year don't you agree - the more you get, the more you want! And irrespective of good weather, it holds enormous charm for all ages, therefore I hope we will be able to welcome you back before too long.
Very best wishes to you all for 2012.

"Fantastic location and ambience"
A really relaxing holiday in late October. The weather was very kind with opportunities to ride bikes, walk, play golf and run. Beaches were empty, the resident population kind and helpful and the a… More
Your kind comments are very much appreciated and we are delighted to hear that the accommodation suited your requirements. The open plan living area certainly makes for a convivial space and with Alderney's pleasant Autumn weather, the balcony provides a superb spot to admire those views!
The island has much to offer throughout the year and with the golf course and Braye Beach only five minutes walk from the house, I'm glad you enjoyed the location. Both Jack's and Nellie Grays are indeed worthy of your praise, with many more fine restaurants available for you to discover on your next visit...
Travel costs can indeed be an issue therefore I agree wholeheartedly, book in plenty of time to secure those cheaper deals. We look forward to welcoming you again next year!

"Spectacular house in a perfect location"
This house is superb, and a credit to the owners. It is very well equiped, with really good fixtures and fittings. Bed linen towels bath robes all provided. It has been very well thought out, and prov… More
Your kind comments are very much appreciated and we are delighted to hear you had such an enjoyable holiday. The views and the sunsets are undeniably spectacular and play a major part in the appeal of the house. The downside of course, is the hill that you need to climb in order to get such views! There is however an excellent car hire facility at reasonable rates on Alderney which provides a solution for those less able. We shall be delighted to accommodate you again in the future.

So glad to hear Pipedreamer House exceeded your expectations and that you all had such an enjoyable time... and with great weather too, what could be better! Your photograph is great and typifies what we love most about our balcony – a great place for wining, dining or sun-downing with friends and family, whilst admiring those gorgeous sea views! Alderney certainly does ooze relaxation so I trust you returned home rested and recharged, and with such fabulous places to eat out during your stay – a perfect combination in anyone's book! Your high recommendation is very much appreciated and we look forward to your next visit.
