'La Grange' is a misnomer - the house has taken its name from the large barn ('en colombage') which is part of the property. The farmhouse is set in the hamlet of Maintru, close to the Avenue Verte and the River Bethune. There is a large and secure garden enclosing the farmhouse itself, a half-timbered barn and a converted stable. The house was built in the 1790s in the traditional Normandy style with exposed beams and an open fireplace. The ground floor accommodation comprises a large dining kitchen, family bathroom, utility room, two living rooms (with an open fireplace and a wood-burning stove) and a TV/reading area with sofa bed. The upstairs accommodation consists of four bedrooms and a shower room.

The house shares its 3,500 square metre grounds with a traditional Normandy half-timbered barn and a converted stable. The garden with its lawns and wooded areas is secure and child-friendly.

A barbecue is provided and there is a private patio with garden furniture. Various outside games, including croquet, are available. Bicycles can be provided on request.

About this location

The Haute-Normandie region

La Grange is set within the Pays de Bray. This is an area that has 'a noticeable feeling of remoteness, with a sparsely inhabited patchwork of flower-filled meadows, verdant valleys and limestone bluffs' (Clare Hargreaves, Normandy).

Neufchâtel (the home of Normandy's oldest cheese) is 10km to the south. Dieppe with its lively Saturday market and restaurants is 15km to the north; and further afield lie the cathedral cities of Rouen and Amiens, and the spa town of Forges-les-Eaux. Within easy reach are Monet's house and gardens at Giverny, the charming port of Honfleur, Saint Saens, and Ry - the model for Yonville-L'Abbaye in Madame Bovary.

Closer to hand you'll find an abundance of gardens, chateaux and castles. Our favourites are: the Bois des Moutiers, a house designed in the Arts and Crafts style by Edwin Lutyens with gardens designed by Gertrude Jekyll; the Norman castle at Arques-la-Bateille; the sixteenth century Renaissance-style chateau in Mesnieres-en-Bray; and the house and grounds of the Chateau de Miromesnil. A little further away, near Rouen, is Chateau Gaillard, a medieval castle built by Richard the Lionheart.

Saint-Vaast-d'Equiqueville

The house is just 200 metres from the 'Avenue Verte', a 40 km cycle track that was once the railway line between Dieppe and Forges-les-Eaux. The long term plan is to extend the Avenue Verte to connect London with Paris. The surrounding countryside is best explored on foot, by cycle or on horseback. The Foret d'Eawy, a vast tract of beech trees with trails for walking and riding, lies less than 10 miles to the west. (The stables at Pomeroy are recommended). Extending from Dieppe to Fecamp and beyond is the Cote d'Albatre with its pretty seaside villages and spectacular chalk cliffs.

The Saint Saens Golf Cub (18 holes, 6510 yards) has been described as 'one of the prettiest in Normandy'. It is surrounded by the Eawy beech forest and the clubhouse and restaurant is in the 19th century Chateau de Vaudichon. The Dieppe Golf Club at Pourville (18 holes, 6350 yards) has a cliff top location with spectacular sea views.

You could, of course, just stay in Maintru, dining al fresco in the secluded garden or simply enjoying the peace and privacy afforded by a location that feels remote, but remains close to home.

"Best getaway ever, would go back and recommend to everyone"

I organised this trip for a group of my friends over the Easter long weekend and we weren't disappointed. Maintru is a beautiful little hamlet with stunning scenery, perfect for those who like to… More
