About Carole Ford

My husband and I are semi retired professionals. We bought Rainbow Farm about 14 years ago purchasing it when it came up for sale after our family had rented it for two years for our holidays. We use it very much as home and have tried to make it as comfortable and well equipped as our UK home. We frequently take groups of friends from our church for short breaks and our annual family holiday get together takes place every Summer.

We enjoy the house in both Summer and Winter. It's good to curl up, after a good French style meal, with a book in front of the log fire and our grand children love it when it snows. The garden is a delight in Summer and we eat on the terrace whenever possible. La Fermette is my husband's dream of a home and he would like to relocate it to the UK.

Carole Ford purchased this farmhouse in 2002

Why Carole Ford chose Montreuil

We rented the house for two consecutive years and when it came on the market decided that we would buy it to continue to enjoy it. We We live in Kent so its a quick and easy journey for us to get to the farmhouse. We enjoy quiet countryside and like rural French life without the hassle of a long car journey. Our kids all enjoy being able to get there cheaply and quickly and with a car full of young children there's no stress on the short journey. We are still finding things to do in the area and are never bored.

What makes this farmhouse unique

With a growing family of grand children we enjoy the space of the house and garden. We like to take groups of friends for weekends and for us the journey is so quick and easy. I do not want to spend many hours in a car driving through France to get further south to a crowded beach when the beaches on the coast nearby are fabulous.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sarah July 2012 "We have spent our holidays in gites for more than twenty years, in all parts of France, Yours comes very close to the top of the list for all amenities and comfort, and reasonable proximity to the sea".Adie "My friends and I really look forward to our annual get-together The house is spacious,, a well-equipped kitchen and six comfortable bedrooms. Lots of “extras” have been provided such as games, maps and books, making it very homely. There’s a woodburning stove for cold days and a patio with table and chairs for summer meals outdoors, so it’s always a wonderful setting for a relaxing time away.

from Tony: ...warm (even in early January), spacious and comfortable.

from Liz ...charming, comfortable, well equipped and spacious. An ideal place to relax and recharge. The traditional French village is charming and the rural setting is perfect for a restful holiday. We look forward to a return trip and would recommend it to our friends and family.

Spacious and ideally suited to a family gathering.

  • 4 of 5

We spent a lovely week at La Ferme with our family to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary and to attend the Vimy Ridge Centenary Commemorations. The house is set in a beautiful garden in a very rural and peaceful area and we enjoyed sitting out listening to the birds singing.

First class

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rainbow Farm over a long bank holiday weekend and found it to be very clean and comfortable. We have visited on a previous occasion and the owners obviously work hard to constantly improve the quality of the house. The area is delightful, peaceful and quiet and ideal for simply relaxing with friends and good food. I am looking forward to another visit

Beautfiul relaxed setting in a comfortable home fr

  • 5 of 5

The property is well suited for large groups. We had 12 and never felt crowded. The house is well equipped with plenty of seating. It has a large garden and lovely countryside to walk through. It was clean and fresh linen was provided.

It is located close to many attractions and ten minutes from a good local supermarket.

We have been twice and fully intend to return for a many more visits. I would certainly recommend it and being an hour from the channel tunnel it is easily accessible.

Owner's Response: Thanks for this great review and we look forward to welcoming you in future years. It is so good to get repeat bookings - it shows us that we are getting most things right for our guests. The easy access through the tunnel makes it a great location for families who do not want long journeys through France.

Very welcoming and exactly as we had imagined.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay immensely. Found everything to our liking and loved the Games Room which we used a great deal. Kept the 6 year old very busy practicing his ping pong most days. Also did not have to worry unduly about the safely of three very active children when playing in the garden.

All information supplied was welcome and would not hesitate to recommend this property to a friend or relative.

We know the area very well indeed and would also mention that the AquaClub near Fort Mahon (which is not too far away if you go cross country) is worth a visit and is also near the beach and much cheaper than the same facility at Le Touquet.

Owner's Response: Thanks for this review. It is good to know that the games room was well used -so many guests say how good it is for less than sunny days. The garden which is large and spacious is always [popular with families.Thanks for the info about Fort Mahon - we'll try that on our next visit. Hopefully we will welcome your family or friends again.

Lovely location for great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean, spacious house in pretty valley -well equipped for cooking for lots of people. Lovely terrace with garden furniture.Well maintained garden to enjoy sunshine, and large games room with table tennis and snooker for wet weather - we enjoyed both! Would highly recommend this, especially for two families wanting a shared holiday but enough space to themselves.

Ideal for Family/Group Visits

  • 4 of 5

We visited for a family get together, there were ten of us and the accommodation was ideal especially the ample bathroom facilities.. There is also a good sized garden for children to play in and a deck area for outside dining. The location is ideal if you like quiet, the village is small and there is little traffic. There are also opportunity for good walking in the area. There is no shop in the village but a supermarket within a short driving distance and a wonderful bakery in a nearby village in a delightful mill setting.. The town of Montreuil is a not far away and we took the opportunity to see the yearly evening performance of Les Miserables which is spectacular.

The weather was against us on a couple of days and we took advantage of the log fire on a couple of evenings!!

The owner is easy to contact and very helpful and they also use the house a lot so it is very well looked after, clean and well equipped.

The cosy log burning stoves in both houses make for a good relaxing stay in the winter to simply enjoy rural France and good food and wine.
