The Cottage was lovely and clean, and really well equipped - Dorothy and Roger have thought of everything! We enjoyed having our own patio area and the girls enjoyed the pool - and the wi-fi!!!
Thank you for inviting us for drinks and nibbles - Good job we didn't have far to stagger back to the cottage!
Super cottage, lovely owners, good weather, French cheese, pain-au-chocolat.......what more could we ask for??!! The Ball family.

Lovely Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks at this lovely farmhouse with our daughter ,son in law and four grandchildren.
After a long journey we were greeted with the lovely sight of the pool and farmhouse ,it looked exactly as it does in the photos,
Dorothy and Rodger had left us some milk and bread and a gorgeous home made sponge cake (thankyou)
Everything was provided for us ,lots of pots pans and crockery more than enough for us all.you dont really need to bring anything else.The accomodation was clean tidy and really welcoming.
The highlight of course was the pool,we all had a great time swimming and splashing and shouting (Sorry) !
We had a lovely family holiday and were all sorry to leave.
There are plenty of shops about 6 miles away and lots of places to visit within an easy drive.
There was a small tv with UK channels which was nice for us adults after the kids had gone to bed and we also had wi -fi which was a bonus.
Marks out of 10---10. lovely location and a great place ,thanks
Neil Lynn and family

Fantastic Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
We are a group of 11 young adults ranging from 20-23. We had a fantastic weekend celebrating a 21st birthday! Although it not maybe every young persons ideal place to stay we definetly had a fantastic time and enjoyed relaxing and making the most of the great weather!

The farmhouse was a lovely place to stay and was spacious enough for 11 of us to stay in.

The farmhouse was well equiped and we enjoyed all being able to sit down for a meal together in the dining/lounge area.

Having the pool was brilliant and we definetly made the most of it.

The owners were more than helpful every step of the way from booking enquiries through to helping us choose the easiest ferry port to travel to. The directions that they gave us were very helpful to. Throughout our stay they were more than helpful providing us with information on local things to do.

We all had a fantastic weekend and would definetly recommend the farmhouse to large groups.

One Week Holiday August 2010

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at the apartment this summer.

The location was excellent, very peaceful. Ideal for a complete rest.

There are plenty of interesting places just a short drive away and the property was very well equipped and very spacious.

The facilities overall were very good and the pool came in very handy for our 10 year old son

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We are three generations - grandparents, parents & 10 year old & all voted the week in the Farmhouse the highlight of our two weeks in France. The Farmhouse is full of character, very spacious, comfortable & relaxing. It was great to have our own en-suite facilities. There were lots of crockery/cutlery/pans/dishes & large cooker & microwave. A good sized fridge freezer & easy to use washing machine. Not that we spent too much time on household chores! We made good use of the BBQ in the large garden. The pool is great - a great size for the 10 year old keen swimmer & she soon made friends with the other two children of similar age at the nearby gite. They enjoyed playing table tennis & the selection of board games. We all liked the fact we could relax for a while watching our favourite British TV programme or reading one of the many books.
The gite is in a very quiet, peaceful situation but with lovely villages & towns nearby. We found the owners' information on food shopping & places to visit very helpful. There is so much to see that we will have to go back again. We would definitely recommend the Farmhouse.

The kitchen is large and well laid out to cater for large parties as many guests take the farmhouse plus one or two of the other houses on the site and tend to do the catering in this house. We have provided large catering pans etc and the large range cooker has five burners and large electric oven and grill. There is a small utility room by the doorway with the washing machine and a toilet/washbasin so guests do not have to go upstairs for the toilet. Outside there are large gardens with lawned areas and a wildflower meadow so plenty of room for healthy outdoor play.
