About Imelda and John Spencer

We love to provide a top rate holiday property for others to enjoy. We provide a friendly service and appreciate that you as clients may want to be able to talk to us either by phone or email at any time- so please do not hesitate to contact us and we will answer any questions you may have. All our whole family enjoy staying together at La Grange du Noyer as our second home- a great place to stay, rest and enjoy the company of family and friends.

Imelda and John Spencer purchased this house in 2006

Why Imelda and John Spencer chose Lot

We fell in love with the barn the moment we saw it. We restored it from its original function as a working barn and cow shed. We lovingly dedicated every holiday from 2001 to 2006 transforming it into the cosy, comfortable beautifully appointed and equipped barn that is enjoyed by all our clients. The area and local people are so welcoming. The scenery and villages are breathtakingly beautiful.

We would love to welcome you and your family.

What makes this house unique


If you enjoy art- metal work, sculptors, paintings- well the village will have much to offer you. We are so fortunate to have so many artists in residence. An evening stroll around the village will delight you. See some examples in the photos.

La Grange Du Noyer was everything we hoped it would be and more in a beautiful area with lots to do

  • 5 of 5

Communication before and during was excellent, both the owners and managers are friendly and helpful. On arrival everything was pristine and supplies of household items are plentiful. We have had a fantastic family holiday and the area is an ideal mixture of adventure, culture, relaxation and hot weather. The weather was so hot it limited some of our activities however it meant we used the pool and bbq frequently.

We would recommend canoeing down the Dordogne, visiting water parks as well as high ropes and zip wires at Rocamadour. We enjoyed River and lake swimming nearby and eating out at lovely restaurants as well as trying the evening markets. The website is helpful for events and local activities.

A truly memorable holiday in a beautiful part of France.

Simply Stunning

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property in a quiet rural village (until the kids got in the pool, then the peace was shattered!).

The house was exactly as described, perfect as a base for days out or just lazing around in the sunshine punctuated by the occasional dip in the pool.

There's plenty to do within a 30 min drive of the propery. Enjoyed a great day out Kayaking from Bretenoux which is only 5mins down the road. If you intend to try this wear swimwear under your clothes and old trainers that you're willing to walk around a river in. Take a picnic and plenty of water too. Best time to leave is around 11am which will give about 4 1/2 hours to cover the 10k route (it takes between 2-3hrs) before meeting the bus back this allows plenty of time for that picnic.

Plenty to do at Rocamadour too. Theres a couple of days worth of things to do and see there. (Rocher des Aigles is well worth a visit).

Plenty of good eating to be had at Beaulieu sur-Dordogne. (Les Voyageurs was a personal favourite).

Would I recommend this holiday destination? Definitely.

Would i return?.. In a heartbeat!..

superb property in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday and the house played a major part in that. we were two families and there was so much room. The house is beautifully finished in every way and everything we needed was there. The garden and pool was just perfect. It is a great location with loads to visit nearby that even in two weeks there was lots missed. very hot holiday and so so relaxing. Cornac village is very quaint and lovely for an evening walk. Thank you so much for making the house so perfect.

Absolutely wonderful accommodation !!

  • 5 of 5

How wonderful to have spent a big family Christmas at the cosy, beautifully equipped Barn. Imelda and John ensured that two beautiful Christmas trees were decorated for our arrival and a warm fire welcomed us. They provided a welcome hamper full of goodies. We spent a truly special time there- I would really recommend spending Christmas at La Grange du Noyer in pretty Cornac village.

A lovely property in a peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful barn conversion in September 2009. We were very pleased with the way Imelda handled our late booking and subsequent queries. The barn is a spacious, very well appointed, attractive home with good quality fittings throughout. There is a small garden with all the garden furniture you could need and of course a great pool.

The village is quiet with no bar or restaurant but the nearest village is only a couple of miles away.

We used the barn as a base for cycling (bikes arranged for us by Imelda) canoeing on the Dordogne, touring this very pretty area, river swimming and walking in the hills. All of which are available nearby.

The house has lots of useful information booklets to help you plan your time. A car is essential.

We would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone.

Beaux espaces et beaux volumes, belles prestations dans une très belle région! Et village très calme

  • 4 of 5

On a passé une agréable semaine avec nos enfants et leurs conjoints. La maison est spacieuse et confortable surtout lorsqu'on est nombreux! Seul bémol, une TV trop petite pour mettre des DVD pour les enfants et même pour les adultes le soir. Sinon, il ne manque rien concernant les commodités: lave vaisselle, lave linge,sèche linge, suffisamment de vaisselle , ventilateurs etc..

La piscine est également trop petite quand on est nombreux.

The old, pretty village of Cornac is situated in the picturesque Lot region of France. Cornac used to be a wine producing village and is close to the wine producing Glanes area. Pilgrims used to pass through Cornac on their way to Santiago del Compostella, Spain. From the top of the nearby hill you can enjoy the view of the village Tuesdays and Saturdays are the days to visit the bustling market town of Bretenoux, which is also one of the bastide towns renowned in the area. The route from the A20 motorway, exiting at Cressensac, takes you through the village of Martel with its nine towers and past Vayrac, where it is said that the Gauls made their last stand against the Romans. There are so many pretty villages to see- the honey coloured stonework adds charm to the picture postcard look. The ambiance of the area helps you to unwind as soon as you arrive in the area. But when energy levels are high again there are plenty of sporting activites available- skiing is only 1 1/2 hours way by train or car .

Other Activities: Kayaking, Quad Biking, Animal Parks, Chateaux, Prehistoric sites, Churches.
