I spent a week with my wife and 2-year-old daughter at Walnut Cottage in what must have been the worst April weather conditions for many years. It barely stopped raining the whole time we were there. We nonetheless managed to have a great and truly memorable holiday – our time there really provided the perfect respite from our hectic daily lives in Paris.
Walnut Cottage is extremely charming with its original stone walls and beautiful wooden beams. It is cosy and very well equipped with most of the amenities you could wish for. Upstairs is a very comfortable and attractive bedroom. A cot was also provided for our daughter. The cottage is finished to a very good standard.
The garden is absolutely gorgeous and we would have spent a lot more time in it had it not been for the awful weather. A great place to relax after a long day spent visiting the absolutely stunningly beautiful local area. Our daughter still managed to have great fun, in between the showers, playing on the swing, kicking her football around and going to visit the animals kept by the neighbours.
One of the greatest things about our stay was the wonderful welcome we received from the owners, Vivien and Fred. They absolutely love where they live and are more than happy to share their extensive knowledge of the local area, dispensing great tips on where to visit, tailored to the interests of the individual visitors. In our case, with my wife 7 months pregnant, an energetic 2-year-old in tow, combined with the incessant rain, you might think the options were very limited but, following their advice, we were able to see a great deal of this beautiful area. As hosts, they are unfailingly generous and thoughtful and the "welcome pack" that greets you when you arrive is just one example of that.
I have come away a huge fan of La Creuse, a hidden gem of a French region, with countless picturesque villages and tiny hamlets set among some truly gorgeous countryside. Certain parts, such as the beautiful Sedelle river were quite reminiscent of my native Scotland. I thoroughly recommend a stay in Walnut Cottage.
We so enjoyed meeting you, and were thrilled you enjoyed your stay is only the weather had been kinder your positiveness was unbounding and we were thrilled you fell in love with our area we hope that maybe one day you will again visit and this time hope the sun will follow you Take care of each other kindest regards Vivien and Fred
