|Further details indoors|
The main bedroom is comfortable and leads out to the courtyard, which is lovely for early sunshine breakfasts under the new rustic gazebo. A BBQ is available for intimate eating Al Fresco. The courtyard is south facing, so gets sun for most of the day. A separate terrace is to the front of the property for quiet evening meals or to chill out at any time of the day. Inside is delightful, with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, yet incorporating the latest insulation techniques allowing the property to be warm in winter and cool in summer.Basic SKY satellite
The cottage is in the quiet area of the village in a no-through road. The ambience is wonderful and the songs of the birds in the morning is an experience, yet inside, the double glazing gives peace and quiet! Our one rule when we converted the stables was 'would we live here' and the answer is most definitely - YES! The cottage has character, but is totally liveable and has everything you need to make your stay comfortable and restful. Our guests tell us that they would love to take the bed home with them as it is so comfortable!! The mezzanine is a chill-out area that is great for reading (you can still see the TV/DVD from up there) or relaxing. It is great fun and very suitable for one child (two would be tight), but the drop-down stairs are a bit steep, so is not suitable for really young children. We have a travel cot for toddlers or babies available if required.
Wooden Gazebo to cover the whole of the rear patio area (now completed). We ultimately plan to glaze the Gazebo to afford almost double the space of the cottage. The Gazebo will allow our guests enjoyment of the outside spaces in all weathers.
We actually prefer the cottage to our own house now!!
|Further details outdoors|
The small garden and terrace, together with the courtyard area with gazebo (see comments above), allow lots of options when chilling out or dining. The area is totally surrounded by countryside and hills, affording a lovely tranquil setting. There are safe walks and the area is crime-free and friendly.
A 100 euro security deposit is payable on arrival and will be repaid, subject to breakages etc. prior to departure. There is constant hot water and full heating in the cottage (subject to a small subsidy during the coolest months or as necessary). There is no cleaning charge, but we ask that you leave the cottage as you find it.
Northern France region
Historical area of Northern France, taking in the Sombe and many battlefields (Agincourt etc.) listed in history books both medieval and from the great wars. Climate is similar to the very south of England, with slightly earlier spring and summer. Lots of golf courses, fishing, walks, bike rides, motor sport, children's theme parks, beaches, shopping, ports and places of interest all within easy reach.
The TGV can allow easy access to Paris (50 mins) from Arras, which is an hour away, or from Boulogne or Lille. The largest cathedral in Europe is at Amien and there are lots of interesting places to go, both for shopping, wine, food, fun for kids etc. etc. Food in the Pas de Calais is diverse, from basic local dishes served through family run bars and restaurants, to culinery delights in specialist restaurants. There is something for all tastes.
The historical walled town of Montreuil allows walks round the ramparts, but you are never far from the town centre with its shopping lanes and squares with outside dining cafes and restaurants. The coast is close by with Berck being the liveliest coastal town. Le Touquet is about a 30 minute drive and has a wealth of upmarket shops and restaurants. Hesdin is 20 minutes with its famous Thursday market and friendly cafes in the square.
In summer months, a music festival is held, with live music of all types featured weekly. Brocantes (local markets similar to car boot sales) are held virtually every weekend at different villages in the area. Golf course abound in the Cote d'Opalle (Opal Coast), with challenging courses or those ideal for the high handicap. All are friendly and inexpensive compared to the UK or other countries.

"Lovely cottage in a lovely location"
We had a really nice two week stay at Levi Cottage. The cottage itself is bright and spacious and contained everything needed for a relaxing holiday, including a really good shower over a full size bath. It was one of the best properies we have rented in France, but does have a small outside area which may not be to everyone's liking.
Cavron Saint Martin is a pretty village with lots of nice walks. It has a local bar and a restaurant (though the restaurant was closed when we were there, but, we believe, hopes to reopen in the future) and is a short drive away from towns such as Hesdin and Montreuil-sur-Mer which have all major facilities and plenty of bars and restaurants. It is also well placed for visiting other areas of Pas de Calais and Picardy.
The booking process was very efficient and the owner, Ash, was extremely prompt in replying to emails for further information, etc. We were warmly welcomed to Levi Cottage by the local key holders, Andy and Carol, who are just a phone call away if needed. They also provided a welcome pack which was a nice touch and the clear directions they sent us also provided some useful information for driving in France.
We would be happy to recommend Levi Cottage to others.

We enjoyed our weeks stay, although it rained every day. This didn't stop us travelling about and did many miles . We did find the Gite too emote for our liking because it was too far to walk into Hesdin in the evenings.
Andy and Carol were very friendly and left a lovely welcome gift.
Would recommend if you like driving and walking.
