Each can be rented separately or together.Please read our guest reviews.

We are happy to let for long weekends and for well behaved pets to stay too!

Please note: The property has been designed with a kitchette, rather than a full kitchen. The fridge is half size so we suggest guests shop daily.

Further details

We prefer to let from Saturday to Saturday but can be flexible for long weekends.

Further details indoors

The Cider Press has a breakfast bar, rather than dining table but there is outdoor seating for warmer weather.

As the stairs are open tred, for safetly reasons, we do not encourage guests with children to rent this building - it really is designed for couples.

Further details outdoors

Guest staying at The Cider Press have full access to both gardens, the outside dining area and the bicycles stored in the Bakehouse.

For those taking the whole property The Cider Press is a little haven away from the other buildings, providing privacy and tranquility!

Location description from owner

The Basse-Normandie region

Normandy is a beautiful part of France, seeped in history and with plentiful sights to go and visit. From the D Day landing beaches to the Bayeau tapestry the area has something to interest everyone. Children will love the charming castle of Carrouges and Chateau DO and Le Haras du Pin, the national stud whilst adults might prefer a trip to Monet's garden (about 80km away) or the Apple and Pear museum.

St Fraimbault, a 'village fleuries' is about 20 minutes from Boudet as is Ambrieres-les-Vales, where there is an outside swimming pool, archery, mini golf and canoeing. Aqualand at Avranches is fun.

The Suisse Normande, a pleasant river valley with some crags and rolling hills and a lovely area for picnics and the opportunity to watch the multitude of paragliders is an easy day trip. Walking, cycling and even canoeing from Pont d'Ouilly are other options.

For those with younger children visit the Enchanted Village at Bellefontaine north of Mortain. Situated in a large parkland it offers a variety of traditional attractions including a miniature railway, electric cars and a quaint fantasy land.

The climate is similar to that of Southern England.

Barenton

Boudet is agreat base for keen cyclists to stay at whilst exploring Normandy. We are moments from the Flers-Domfront veloroute or Voie Verte (a disused railway line cycle track) which forms part of an extensive network. This offers an excellent and safe opportunity to get about and explore the area - you can even cycle to Mont St Michel. Do bring your own bikes. We have some on site but they are better used for short local trips!

There is an open air swimming pool at Mortain (15 min drive), horse riding is available near Barenton. Bungee jumping can be found near Clecy.

Golf can be played at Clecy, Granville, Dol de Bretagne and Bagnoles de L’Orne's whose golf course is closest to us. It is a beautiful 9 hole course designed by Harold Becker in 1925 and situated in the middle of the Andaine forest. It is a very pretty, reasonably flat but physical course that dominates in the “doe-ford” glade. A river meanders through the forest and often borders the fairways.

For beaches Mount St Michel is about 50 minutes from Boudet. Carolles is the nearest beach 70 km away and the charming fishing town Cancale is 107 km from the property. Other recommended beaches are Deauville, Houlgate and Trouville-sur-Mer. Base de Loisirs La Ferte Mace is a 65 hectare leisure base centred around La Ferte Mace large lake which is a great alternative to a beach. It has lifeguards in July and August, a play area, volley ball, peddocs, mini golf etc.

More practically the local village, with all essential amenities, including a small supermarket is 2 km away. The historic towns of Domfront and Mortain (all facilities) are 12 km away.
The local English caretaker will cater for welcome dinners, lunches, picnics, etc. on request.
