5 Little Street is our family home in Alderney and we love it. It was probably built in the 17th century to accommodate animals, grain and people and it has been both a family home and a holiday house over the last 40 years. Little Street is one of the older streets in Alderney and it is worth working your way up the very pretty cobbles of Little Street to see other interesting buildings - the Old Barn, some random numbering at 8 1/2 Little Street, and the spooky steps outside some houses where witches and evil spirits sit. At the top of the street there are some truly elegant windows, typical to Alderney, and our own German bunker, with dragons. And that is just Little Street!
Being a very old house, the stairs are challenging to those with mobility issues, especially as we have a rope bannister. While we’ve brought our children here since they were babies, you may not want curious toddlers on the top floor, and people with mobility issues may not enjoy the climb upstairs.
The house is a very simple house on 3 floors. It sleeps 6 plus babies in four bedrooms with two bathrooms. We are sorry but no dogs please. It benefits from lots of natural light from both back and front of the house, and is lovely and sunny when the sun is out.
We’ve kept it as a practical home for a family, and the interior style hopefully has a comfy seaside vibe, with lots of marine touches, seaside colours and Alderney artwork.
We’ve tried to buy all our pictures here on the island from local artists, except for some of the photos which we’ve taken ourselves.
It is an easy holiday home to use; not only do we have all mod cons, there is le Cocq's supermarket across the Marais Square, and you don’t need to bring much with you. All bedding and towers are included, except for beach towels.
Enjoy your stay in our island home.
