5* Gold Holiday Cottages in Cornwall
Welcoming homes nestle in a wild ancient landscape of slumbering granite in the finals for Sustainable Tourism at Visit England Awards 2014
We are challenging the standards of most listed green holidays and are delighted to be in the finals for Sustainable Tourism in the Visit England Awards 2014. We have already been placed in the top 20 of The Guardian Green Travel List 2011 as well as winning Gold for Sustainable Tourism and Highly Commended for Self Catering in the South West Tourism Awards 2013/14, Gold for Sustainable Tourism and Silver for Self Catering in the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2013/14.
Hidden in the heart of the Cornish countryside, Little White Alice is a unique private complex offering 5 Star Gold luxury but sustainable holidays in beautifully furnished green cottages. It’s a place of wide open horizons and warm luxurious interiors, a place to embrace the rhythm and nature of the changing seasons throughout the whole year. How you do that is up to you. Curl up by the stove or stretch out in the sun by the natural swimming pool. Stroll barefoot in the willow gardens or stomp out into our own wilderness and discover our new green magical woods. Help us look after our growing collection of animals or get creative and crafty in our onsite artist's studio. Whether you hike, ride, or bike or simply want to sit still Little White Alice can cater for all. We offer high quality luxurious self catering accommodation indoors as well as a whole feast of outdoor experiences to tempt you into our expansive communal areas. Our cottages come in a range of sizes sleeping from 1-12 people and we welcome children of all ages. It is also possible with enough foresight to book the whole complex for a larger party of up to 24 friends or family. Perfect for special celebrations. We also offer short breaks of 2 or more nights. Dogs are welcome in Nion (The Ash House), Beth (The Birch House) and Fearn (The Alder House).
Our site aims to produce all its own energy and water so your holiday can be as green as possible. You can even plant a tree in our new woodland to help offset your journey to us.
Locally we are lucky to have the award winning pub The Golden Lion whose food and warm hospitality is well worth the gentle stroll to get there and a little further along the other direction is The Star Inn at Porkellis. For the more active and especially those with children there is the up and coming Stithians Watersports Centre just on our doorstep with not only excellent facilities for a whole range of watersports but a brilliant play park, climbing wall and archery facilities. They also have the excellent Caffe Nova with superb coffees, cakes and light lunches. We also work closely with Explorer Cycles who will not only deliver bikes to your door for you to use for the duration of your stay but they will also take you out on guided tours of the Mineral Tramways.
Heartlands, the newly developed world heritage site with the biggest free cultural playground in the South West is just a few miles down the road from us offering adventures for all the family.
Further afield there is so much to explore in Cornwall and our website has a links to just a few of those favourite places.
