The third largest Channel Island, Alderney is one of the rare unspoiled corners of Britain. With a population of a little under two and a half thousand, its reputation as a peaceful, relaxing getaway is matched only by the locals’ reputation for warm welcomes and traditional jovial hospitality. Easily explored by foot the fascinating and beautiful Island is only one and a half miles wide by three and a half miles long and boasts a mild comfortable climate.
Like its neighbours, Guernsey and Jersey, Alderney is independently governed, but unlike the larger islands, and despite its proximity to mainland France (10 miles west of Normandy), it remains more or less entirely free from mainstream tourism. Remote as Alderney may be it is surprisingly easy to visit as it has its own harbour and airport with direct scheduled flights to and from the UK.
Alderney, one of Britain’s best-kept secrets.

The Alderney Wildlife Trust aims to promote the conservation and protection of Alderney's terrestrial and marine wildlife and associated habitats, also to promote the conservation and protection of places of scientific interest, amenity value or natural beauty. Since its launch in 2002 the Trust now actively manages around 20k of public footpath and over 120ha of the island’s countryside as nature reserve, in addition to the Island’s Internationally Imprtant Wetland (Ramsar) site which includes many of Alderney’s key species such as Northern Gannet and Puffin. The Trust also founded the Island’s Bird Observatory in 2016 which collects detailed records of the momentous European migration which passes the island each year.
When visiting the Island you can find out more about the Trust’s regular walks and activities programme from bat and hedgehog walks, to wildlife kayaking, boat trips and historic tours at the Wildlife Centre in the centre of the island’s only town, St. Anne (www.alderneywildlife.org/whats’on). The volunteers and staff at the centre can also help you plan your visit, pointing out interesting and often missed sites and providing access to unusual buildings such as the ominous WWII naval tower known as the Odeon

Like Guernsey and Jersey, the island enjoys a mild climate and independence, with its own government and a fledgling off-shore finance and E-commerce sector.
Despite its closeness to mainland France (8 miles), Guernsey (23 miles), Jersey (30 miles) and the Isle of Wight (60 miles), Alderney has managed to avoid mainstream tourism. Remote, yet well-connected with direct scheduled air links from the UK, Alderney has its own airport and harbour.

When you come to stay on Alderney, you will find a number of cosy, privately-owned hotels and friendly guest houses, as well as self-catering accommodation. If you fancy camping in the Channel Islands, you can stay at Saye Beach Campsite. The campsite is perfectly positioned, adjacent to several of Alderney’s finest beaches.
Braye Harbour is Alderney's main transportation link for goods arriving on the island, and hosts a customs station for visitors arriving on the island.
There are 70 yellow visitors' mooring buoys, and it is possible to raft up on these in good weather. Mooring fees are £20 per day and £5 per day for anchorage. All other mooring buoys are private, and should not be used without permission from the Harbour Master. The anchorage in the middle of the bay has good holding ground in sand, but there are areas of rock and weed. Towards the entrance of the harbour, the bottom is generally more rocky.
Because of the tidal range at Springs (up to 6.9m), a good scope of anchor line should be used, especially if anchoring in shoal areas. It is not permitted to anchor in the Fairway or close to Braye Jetty, or to tie up to Braye Jetty

Welcome to Ingrid's guest house and home. The small guest house with lots of character. You are not a guest, you are a visitor in Ingrid's home.
' I inherited some beautiful classic antique furniture and had to keep it in storage for 8 years until I found the guest house - the two were made for each other. The building is from the late 1700's and I am forunate in that it still retains some original features. The dining room / lounge gives this house an illusion of grandeur with its high ceiling, large sash windows and open fireplace. Some of the furniture - the grandfather clock (restored on the island), welsh dresser and pictures add to the feeling of elegance. The staircase with the original mahogany hand rail leads up to the bedrooms. There are only three rooms, two ensuite and one with its own bathroom. Each room has its own individual decor and I have tried to add a feeling of comfort through the soft furnishings and paintings. All the rooms have an east / west aspect so are full of light. The rooms are equiped with TVs and the trays have a selection of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and home made biscuits.
To the rear of the property is a quiet patio, the beech table in the centre was hand made in the 30s. Surrounded by flower pots, climbing roses and jasmine,you can listen to the fountain and watch the goldfish. Beyond is a small garden, a retreat, a place to relax with a book or bring in a bottle of wine, glasses are of course provided.
Breakfast is a feast of fresh fruit salad, melon or pink grapefruit. Local dairy produce and home made jams and marmelades accompany the cooked breakfast with bread from the bakery '
