A comfortable and spacious cottage with everything you need to make your holiday relaxing and easy. completely all-inclusive price. The cottage is suitable for a couple, a family or a larger group of up to 8 people on a budget.

Always spotlessly clean and ready when you get there, along with a welcome pack of local bread, cheese, butter milk and wine to unwind with after your journey.

English and french speaking owners with a wealth of knowledge of the area, always willing to help out or let you enjoy the peace and quiet, as you choose.

From the front door you enter the kitchen, which is well equipped including, a cooker, microwave, Fridge/freezer, washing machine, coffeemaker and plenty of pots and pans. There is a dining area for 8 people and a sunny, south facing lounge at the back of the house.

There is a shower room with plenty of hot water and there are 2 large bedrooms. Bedroom 1 has a double bed, a single bed and a sofa bed. Bedroom 2 has a double and 2 single beds. All bed linen and towels are provided free of charge but let us know if you prefer to bring your own.

The garden is an enclosed lawned area and safe for children and pets, with furniture and a BBQ. We can provide a cot, high chair, bath, potty and boxes of toys for young children on request .

There is a large walk-in cupboard off the lounge with Iron, ironing board, cleaning materials and beach toys.

You can stroll or cycle from the front door down green lanes or across the open farmland and marais, of the regional parkland of Cotentin, but don't forget your binoculars. The bird life here is wonderful. There are many cycle routes in the area and lanes are very quiet.

The 2nd World War Landing Beaches, as well as miles of glorious sandy beaches and dunes on both sides of the peninsula, are about 30 away and 45 minutes away.

All the main tourist attractions, and lots of not so well known ones, are in easy reach by car/motorbike. These include many war memorials and museums, the Bayeux Tapestry, Le Mont St Michel, Caen, the home of William the Conqueror, historic buildings and gardens, Many hidden treasures and events take place throughout the summer.

There are great local produce restaurants or, if you prefer, buy your seafood fresh from the harbour or collect your own mussels and cockles from the beach. Most towns have there own market each week, which is a lovely way to shop and taste new things.

There is so much more and we provide comprehensive tourist information in the cottage for you to browse though but we are also available if you need a hand, just ask. We aim to make your holiday the best it can be.

"Would happily stay again"

A peaceful and comfortable retreat with Bayeux, the Cherbourg peninsula and the Mont St.Michel areas all within easy reach. A kind gift of red wine, baguette and French cheese waiting on the kitchen table on our arrival. All in all a very pleasant stay and the owners helpful and friendly..

We are glad you enjoyed your time with us. See you again soon we hope.

"Home from home - comfortable and welcoming!"

We were greeted + welcomed by the owners and immediately felt at home and relaxed.
The accommodation is perfect for families or a small group, with ample parking and a pretty, well equipped garden. There was nothing we wanted for.
As the surrounding area is fairly flat, it is ideal for cycling and there is easy country walking along the numerous footpaths.
The vast expanses of sandy beaches, only a short drive away, are absolutely wonderful - perfect if you really want to get away from it all.
The gite has numerous pamphlets and this helps to plan your days out. DDay museums, local supermarkets, horse-trap racing, french markets, restaurants, beaches etc - there's lots to do, if you have time.
The nicest aspect of our stay was the fact that the owners are so friendly but that they will not intrude on your privacy while you are staying with them.
If you want hustle and bustle, loud music and nightlife - this little 'hide away' is perhaps not for you!!

Glad you were comforatble and that we were able to be of help to you. See you next year!

"The cottage was brilliant for our gang because it has a huge kitchen diner, Jane and Nigel were so welcoming."

A great place for a big family holiday, easy going hosts, total peace and quiet, lovely walks on the Marre, and PLENTY OF SPACE. Not pretentious or fussy, but squeaky clean and comfortable and charming too. The area is tops because there;s amazing beaches, all the WWII sites, the unbeatable Bayeaux Embroidery, kayaking, a crazy fun thing where you pedal along an actual train track on a clanky platform on wheels, the National Stud, where you can see some red hot horses, a great zoo, some typical French markets for browsing, but best of all...LE TROTTING! Try it! it's only in the next village! it's buggy racing, and we had such fun there. Back to the house, there was everything you could need, and more, and if you needed any help advice or bits and bobs, Nigel or Jane would be sure to help you out. Did I mention the goats? They were so delightful, bleating a "bonjour!" every morning from across the paddock, I'll be going there again,when we can all get together.

Thank you for your review, we are delighted that you were happy in our cottage and had a good holiday. Come back soon.

"Great place to stay!"

Close to everything we wanted to visit and see. Quiet country location that was a great change of pace. House had everything we needed, including a bottle opener! It was also very child friendly which is my main worry when traveling with a 2yo and 10 month old. Everything was clean and ready for us. If we ever go back to Normandy we will be staying again! I would recommend it to anyone traveling with kids and want a quiet place to stay!

Thank you so much for your review, we are glad you enjoyed the cottage and had a good time. We would love to see you all here again some time.
All the best, Nigel and Jane
