Absolutely beautiful house, with such an amazing view over the island. Excellent location and it was perfect for the week we stayed, the weather definitely helped. The facilities in the house were perfect, the kitchen is well equipped, the bathrooms are perfect, and the whole place was very clean and tidy. I would definitely stay again.
We enjoyed a wonderful week on Alderney staying in Pipedreamer. Pipedreamer looks out over Braye beach and harbour. It's a stunning setting and we saw some beautiful sunsets. The elevated position does mean there is a 30-40 metre steepish climb to get up to the house and for those who are less mobile this may be an issue without a car. The house itself is really well equipped with an open lounge and kitchen area and a fantastic terrace on which we spent lots of time. The kitchen has every possible utensil you could need. The bedrooms are all of a good size with two being en-suite. The showers are great. There is a washing machine and tumble dryer and a decent supply of beach toys including a wind break. We certainly plan to return to this beautiful island and for those looking for a place to stay then make sure to book Pipedreamer.
We stayed at Pipedreamer over the Easter Holidays, as a party of 6 (4 adults and 2 children).
The house is a high quality rental, spacious (4 bedrooms) and very well equipped. We were impressed with the light and airy upstairs kitchen, diner and lounge area with the beautiful beams, but the best part of the house is the wraparound balcony which provides views across Braye Bay,
We cooked in and ate out equally during our stay, and would recommend the local Waitrose at Braye (called Jean Stores) and the Cantina no 6 restaurant (7 mins walk).
Alderney is a gem of an island, with wonderful unspoilt beaches and interesting military history, which is perfect for a family holiday.
The only reservation we have about Pipedreamers would be asking someone to stay who was not fully mobile because the driveway up to the house is long and very steep. In this case, we would recommend guests hire a car.
Overall a wonderful home from home.
This was booked as a surprise for a friends birthday and he was blown away !
The accommodation was fab, beds comfortable, kitchen well stocked and a wine and beer cooler. The veranda was perfect for breakfast over looking the bay and in the evening on our return for star gazing. we even saw a shooting star.
I cant recommend highly enough Cantina No 6, we ate there 3 times, each time was perfect. Also give the Georgian a go - their food is also outstanding.
Plenty of walking, my steps were recorded at 20 -25 thousand per day!
Thanks to Lesley who was very accommodating and helpful.

We stayed here for my 50th birthday. We had been to the island many years ago as children and came back for a special celebration with all the family.
The property is superb with amazing views across Braye Beach. The beds were comfortable and the whole house was spotless including all three bathrooms.
The owners were helpful allowing us to stay a little longer on the day of departure and recommending good places to eat
We will return
