“Wonderful stay in Pipedreamer”

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.

“Beautiful home from home”
Reviewed 16 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

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.

Thank you very much for your feedback it is greatly appreciated. We fully agree the hill is not too friendly for those with mobility difficulties and will ensure this is advertised clearly for any new visitors wishing to stay at Pipedreamer. Alderney is definitely a gem with a fantastic charm we hope to see you and the family back in the near future.

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.

Thank you so much folks for your lovely review. It is most rewarding to know that Pipedreamer provided such an enjoyable venue from which to celebrate this happy occasion.

I am sure you would agree that we are truly spoiled for choice here on Alderney with great restaurants, great beaches, fabulous walks, amazing sunsets and those incredible dark skies to stargaze! Our balcony is certainly not a bad spot from which to do this! I hope it won't be long before you can return.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 13 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

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

A brilliant place to stay. All the rooms are spacious and fitted out to a high standard, making it feel very luxurious. Sitting out on the balcony (glass of wine in hand) was a perfect start to our weekend. Four of us staying meant plenty of room, but even if fully occupied this house conveys a great sense of space. Lesley was really helpful, giving us lots of information and tips about the island - she also gave us all a lift down to the supermarket. which was much appreciated! All in all first class accommodation in a beautiful setting - we will be back!

It is so rewarding to hear that Pipedreamer ticked all the boxes for you and that you enjoyed such a comfortable and relaxing stay. The sense of light from all that glass, helps maximise the feeling of space and by sliding back the double doors onto the balcony, you can really soak up the sun and those amazing views. Alderney is such a beautiful, tranquil island with an incredible and varied history, and it gives me the greatest pleasure to be able to share my passion and knowledge of where to go and what to do with our guests. Thank you for your wonderful comments and I look forward to your return visit.

This house exceeded our expectations in every way! There were only four of us in this house that sleeps 8, but it was lovely to have so much room to ourselves. Equally, this house lends itself to be full of family & friends as it would be so much fun & ideal for special occasion get-togethers. The whole house is perfectly equipped & beautifully decorated. The upstairs open plan kitchen/diner/living room is gorgeous with a lovely warm atmosphere & the views over Braye Beach are stunning. This is THE place to stay in Alderney as far as I'm concerned, & if I could give it 10 stars I would! Lesley (the owner) is lovely & very attentive. She wants all of her guests to enjoy the house to the maximum & goes the extra mile to ensure this happens. Lesley meets you & shows you around & explains everything that you need to know. She also pops in before you depart to check that everything was OK during your stay. We enjoyed our stay so much that we are already planning our next visit. As every reviewer on Tripadvisor has given this property a full five stars, I don't think anymore needs to be said!

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 into it. Bath robes and towels provided proving a lovely touch as baggage allowance only 15 kg. lots of hidden extras like torches umbrellas not that we needed them. Alderney is a beautiful unspoilt island and pipedreamer was just perfect. unfourtanatly a week wasn't long enough to finish the 1000 piece jigsaw

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! :-)
