The ground floor has a very large kitchen with separate dinning room,large lounge,bedroom,shower room and a vaulted sitting area.All the walls are mellow yellow stone which makes the house nice and cool in the summer months. The well equipped kitchen and dinning room both have large stone fireplaces one with a free standing wood burning fire. The first basket of logs supplied, extra logs at cost. May to Sept rates do not include central heating. The kitchen is fitted with hand crafted solid wood units. There are lots of little nooks and crannies that give the house lots of charm. The vaulted sitting area is one of my favourite places to sit.

Mainly laid to crops the area is bursting with wild life a must for photographers and painters alike.
Quite lanes and woodland to take great relaxing walks keeping an eye out for deer,hares and partridge.
10 mins drive from the N10 means an easy place to explore the region with three cities within easy reach and the beaches not too far away.Or just visit one of two lakes (nearby) which are great for swimming,picnics and bar-b-que's.

"A lovely relaxing holiday with loads of space for the kids"
My wife and I stayed with 3 kids for a week in August 2012 and really loved it here. Sue and Andy made us feel really welcome but left us alone to enjoy the space, the pool, the barbecue and the ambience. The kids absolutely loved it - they thought that we were staying in a castle and wanted to be in the pool and have barbecues every day so that's what we did! The house was spotless and had everything we needed - would thoroughly recommend it!

"Totally Exceeded Our Expectations!"
I speak on behalf of our family party of 8 who were fortunate enough to spend a blissful week in this stunning, spacious house & setting. Our hosts were superb. They were friendly, helpful but let us get on with enjoying our stay to the max! We ventured to the Puy du Fou, Vallee des Singes & Confolens but to be honest we could have spent the whole time based at the farmhouse with never a dull moment. Eating al fresco, playing sports, swimming, chilling. An ideal spot for walking, cycling too. It would be perfect for children of all ages with extra beds & a beautiful cot available. Plenty of rooms to allow holiday-makers of all ages time & space on their own if needed. A fabulous place to come back to and we were all sad to leave. Would recommend to anyone. Only one regret.........needed another 2 weeks! Thanks to Sue & family for being such stars!
