Our review of Little White Alice


Little White Alice is a complex of 5* luxury family friendly self-catering cottages in the Cornish countryside. The cottages come in a range of sizes sleeping from 1 to 12 people, and the whole complex can be booked to accommodate up to 24 people. The owners pride themselves on Little White Alice’s green credentials and have won a number of awards for their sustainable approach. For an idea of prices a week’s stay in the Birch House (sleeps four) in July costs £932, but drops to as low as £350 off peak. A week in the Oak House (sleeps eight) in August costs £2200 but you could have a four night stay in December for under £500.


The owners of Little White Alice say it’s ‘all about the kids on holiday’ and this child-friendly ethos is clear in the facilities available at the complex. There’s 25 acres of land to explore, including a green play area in the private nature reserve. There’s a natural swimming pool to splash around in and an on-site artist’s studio to encourage your children’s creative side – ask about the organised arts and crafts activities. There’s also a growing collection of animals which children are encouraged to help out with, including grooming and walking the resident ponies, feeding the pigs and helping collect the chicken’s eggs.


And what about the parents? Well, there’s babysitting available and there are at least two lovely pubs reachable within a gentle stroll. All holiday-makers are greeted with a welcome hamper containing locally sourced goods, including eggs laid by the resident hens. As mentioned above there’s a natural swimming pool accompanied by a sunken firepit and a wood-burning hot tub, perfect for a relaxing chat with other guests after a long day exploring the Cornwall countryside. Dogs are welcome in some of the Little White Alice cottages (for a small extra charge) and the owners can also provide a dog-sitting service if needed.


If you’re looking for a family friendly holiday in Cornwall which is as good for the environment as it is for your well-being, at Parent Friendly Stays we think you’ll be more than happy with a stay at Little White Alice.
