Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Alderney, Channel Islands your home away from home

Alderney is a small and unspoilt island paradise, lying 8 miles off the Normandy coast. It is just 3.5 miles long (5km) and is the most northerly and the third largest of the Channel Islands, with its own government. It has managed to avoid any mainstream tourism, retaining a serene environment which is rich in flora and fauna. The capital of the island is St Anne’s, a picturesque community with a post office, banks and stores. For those enjoying a self-catering holiday rental on Alderney, there are plenty of old pubs and restaurants to make dining out and chatting with the locals a real pleasure.

The island is a haven for nature-lovers and birdspotters. The island is home to around 300 species of bird and has an estimated 2% of the world’s gannet population. It is also known for its beautiful carpets of wild flowers. The sandy beaches are perfect for sunbathing, reading, boating and swimming in the clear water.
