We enjoyed staying at the Pines which had everything we needed for a lovely five day break.
We stayed in The Pines part of the accommodation which was extremely comfortable and clean with everything we needed. It is set in a lovely peaceful location surrounded by lovely gardens. The children had a wonderful time playing in the garden and the owners made us feel extremely welcome. We would definitely return to this accommodation as there really was nothing we could fault. Thank you very much Patrick and Sue.
We have just spent a most enjoyable week in The White House - and everything about this property was exceptional. The rooms were large, bright and comfortable offering wonderful views of the huge, colourful gardens in every direction.
The setting of the property is ideal as many of the fine seaside resorts such as Fort Mahon and Berck Plage are within a very short drive and the larger towns of Boulogne and Abbeville are also within easy reach.
All in all a wonderful holiday in a wonderful location - one we hope to repeat in the future.
Many thanks to Sue and Patrick.
The house was very nice and we felt at home. Large bed-rooms, a very well equipped kitchen and a cosy living room made our stay extraordinary. The small village is very nice and the two beaches (Fort Mahon and Berck) are only 10 Minutes away.
The two hosts (Sue and Patrick) are very nice and helpful and gave us from the beginning the feeling to be at home.
We could recommend this house to families as well to a couple.
Thanks very much for this wonderful stay.
