Our half-timbered, self-catering cottage, which we use regularly ourselves, is set on a gentle incline in its own half-acre field, bordered by our 2 acre forest. It's perfect for walks and cycling straight from the door. People who've stayed here say it's like a Hansel and Gretel cottage. It's at the end of a track, surrounded by valleys, trees and meadows as far as the eye can see - yet less than an hour from Rouen, Honfleur and the sea. Pont-Audemer, the 'Venice of the North', with its canals and medieval buildings, is just 10 miles away. And it's only 2 kilometres from the historic village of St-Georges-du-Vievre, which has shops, post office bank and bars. The cottage is small and simply furnished, with all the basic essentials. The living room has a beamed ceiling and wood-burner. The shower-room/WC is on the ground floor. And up steep stairs, into the roof space, with beams and 2 windows, is the double bed . Outside is a patio with furniture and a forest view to die for. Sit here with a glass of wine and listen to the birds. Bliss.
