BEAUTIFUL TRADITIONAL FARMHOUSE IN PICTURESQUE VILLAGE

Raye Sur Authie Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom farmhouse, quiet location, enclosed garden, lots of character

The Old Bakery is a traditional ‘fermette’ situated in a small village with the river Raye running through it. It is surrounded by a large enclosed garden on a no through road. It has a spacious farmhouse kitchen with large dining table with enough room for 8 to sit comfortably around it. The lounge has a large open fireplace built of local stone and French windows opening onto a patio area. The house is set within spacious gated gardens which offer plenty of sunny and shaded spots. The large, south facing patio to the rear of the property makes an ideal area for al fresco dining.

There is a mini market and chemist approx 2 kms away in the village of Le Boisle. The pretty market town of Hesdin is about 10 mins drive and has all the supermarkets and shops you would need. There are plenty of bistro’s and places to eat, and Thursday is market day, when the town is busy and bustling with visitors and locals alike all buying their local produce

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed

About Katy Madkins

We bought this house in 2008 as a peaceful retreat for our family, to have quality family time away from the stresses of modern life.

Katy Madkins purchased this farmhouse in 2008

Why Katy Madkins chose Raye Sur Authie

We loved this property from the first time we saw it on the Internet. It is in such a peaceful location in a lovely little village. We love spending time there, where our kids don't have all the distractions of home. We have spent lots of time playing board games and on the games tables with them and watching films together. It's just like a good old fashioned childhood!

What makes this farmhouse unique

This really is a 'get away from it all' experience. Even if you only spend a couple of nights there, you will come away feeling like you have had a holiday!

Very Nice Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for two nights and it was a fantastic place to have a very relaxing holiday. There is lot of space in the house and the garden and perfect for a family holiday, with children. The village where this house located is very peaceful and situated within easy drive from Calais. The owners were very responsive to our queries from the start of the process. We probably will consider this holiday home for another longer holiday again.

The Old Bakery

  • 5 of 5
We found the house to be in a very tranquil setting. Having such a nice garden added to the enjoyment. As we had a mix of weather we were very glad of the wood burner to make our evenings cosy. It is a very convenient base from which to explore the Somme coastal area. We appreciated Diana's friendly visits .We would certainly like to visit the Old Bakery again.

Friendly style for a relaxing holiday

  • 4 of 5
There were 6 adults in our group. Plenty of room both in the house and in the garden (the only issue was that we could have done with a 2nd toilet/shower). The house was clean and tidy, with everything we needed. The village is quiet, and it was nice to play boules on the village green with some local lads.

We were in need of time to chill out and relax, so we enjoyed late breakfasts in the house (after a visit to the many boulangerie's nearby); a trip out with a slow lunch in a brasserie in one of the towns in easy reach; then either some time on the beach, rummaging around a market, wandering around a historic town or just going for a walk.

We did a trip to Boulogne and thought the aquarium an excellent destination. Fort Mahon was a great beach, and we enjoyed St. Valerie.

The restaurant in Doritz was interesting and we enjoyed both our visits. The information given to us prior to arrival (and with copies in the house) helped to plan what we lazily wanted to do.

Would definitely recommend this property to a friend or family member, and given it's easy reach from Calais, we could see us returning for some more "re-charging of the soul" at a future date.

Very beautiful and traditional gite

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay at The Old Bakery. The gite is very well equipped, tastefully furnished, large rooms, lots of activities for children in the gite. We loved the quiet, relaxing location, and the large spacious garden. Fantastic communication with owners and very welcoming local people. We enjoyed the large, new aquatic centre in Hesdin. The gite was very clean and well-maintained. I would highly recommend this property. Can't wait to return!

Enjoyed our stay in you home lots to do with the children and with room to spread out. We enjoyed the space in the kitchen to cook eat and chat. Beds were fine we slept well as it was so quiet. Easy access to lots of interesting places. A good find.

Our perfect first family holiday!

  • 5 of 5
It was with great trepidation we booked 'The Old Bakery' for our first family holiday on foreign soil. We are a family of 5 (with ages ranging from 4 to 40) and have always previously stayed close to home, but any initial reservations we may have had disappeared once we arrived.

As promised in the website 'blurb' everything is here that we could possibly need to entertain and survive, no matter what the weather threw at us. As it turned out we had a very pleasant week and even on the one afternoon that it did rain, we tromped around an old castle (Fressin). With the house being quite central to plenty of days out, we were easily able to fill our week and keep busy. We visited the Citadel at Montreuil-sur-Mer, mucked about on the beach at Fort-Mahon Plage and spent a few hours ambling around Hesdin, as well as thoroughly investigating picturesque Raye-sur-Authie itself. We decided to do some sight-seeing in Paris, so caught an early train from Abbeville and spent the day 'Metro-hopping' around the Capital, which was a great experience.

There were week long family badminton, boulle and air hockey tournaments and we were also able to keep up with the Olympics (hurrah for SKY!).

I can't speak highly enough of the communication from the owners, for speedy responses and information received (and boy did I test their patience with loads of questions and silly queries!). At the house there is a phrase book and dictionary on-hand, as well as lots of detailed information, visitor leaflets and maps available for reference.

We would certainly consider a return visit here one day and with 8 beds available, maybe take some friends next time too!
