“Peace & Quiet” Thats all I ask for from a holiday these days and I got it in spades here. A lovely peaceful location but only a 5 min drive to the nearest "town".
Barbara & Ray are lovely people and ensured that our holiday was everything that we wanted.
Azincourt is only 15 mins away and is worth the trip. Abbeville is better for shopping and is 45 mins away but worth the effort. Don't bother looking for anywhere being open on a Sunday or between 12 & 2 every day. Most shops in Hesdin are closed on a Monday too (how do they make money???). A couple of restaraunts worthy of note were La Breteche and Hotel les Flandres.
We went to Paris for the day, getting the train from Abbeville, which was a really nice day out, using the tour buses to get around. We purchased our tickets off the Rail Europe website at home and there were no problems at all.
It's an easy drive from the ferry at Calais and will cost you 4 Euro in Toll Fees.
If you are looking for a rowdy holiday look elsewhere.
Primrose Cottage, Pretty Detached Holiday Cottage, with wi-fi and english TV

Laurel House, detached single story, rural property with wifi and all amenities
Lovely rural cottage
We had a pleasant and relaxing stay at Laurel House, despite some heavy downpours! Cottage was comfortable with a large garden and orchard. Would definitely recommend. …
Family friendly house in tranquil surroundings
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chez Leopold and hope to return sometime in the future. The house is much larger and nicer than it appears in the photos. My favourite room is the dining room which has a large dining room table and wood burner. Eating together as a large group is something we really enjoy. The kitchen is well equipped. The space in the rest of the house made up for only having one bathroom. As we were all family we were able to work around it. The lounge is very comfortable with another wood burner where we spent good evenings playing board games. The garden is very large with established trees, swings and a slide so it is great for children. There is also a outbuilding with a selection of outside toys. The house is situated in a quaint village in beautiful surroundings and is next to a church. I really miss the bells ringing. …

Jasmin Cottage, single story rural property with wifi
Pleasant stay in rural setting with good access to beaches
We hired both Jasmine Cottage and Laurel House for a summer break with all the family. Location was ideal, as it is only 35mins from teh beaches at Le Touquet. The gite has plenty of outdoor space and it is perfectly succluded, to enable the children to run and play freely. Cottage is nicely equipped and close to most amenities we required. Took a day trip to the battlefields at The Somme, which is about 1hr 15mins drive and just over an hours drive from the eurotunnel terminal at Calais. …
