Further details outdoors

The outdoor heated shared pool is a generous 10 x 5 metres and there are plenty of loungers to go round plus five acres of gardens to lose yourself in. It is surrounded by a fence keeping the garden safe for smaller children. The pool is open from early April to late October. The five acres of private gardens are traversed by the pretty river Yres. There are some stunning views looking down to the water from the bridges as well as riverside walks within the grounds. There is a formal garden at the front of the property, a huge lawned area at the back which is fenced off where it meets the river so children can play safely in the garden. There are bridges over the river to a secret garden area, an orchard and the owners' very own island which is wonderful for meditation sessions! There is also a large duck pond, home to occasional wild ducks, as well as a large meadow with a 12th century church ruin on it to explore. The meadow is also home to our two ponies and a donkey Pepito (or Pete for short!), who love meeting our guests. A holiday here can be spent busily pursuing all the activities on offer in the local area, or doing absolutely nothing except relaxing in the chateau and its grounds.

Location description from owner

The Haute-Normandie region

Le Treport and Mers-les-Bain are about 20 minutes drive away and well worth a visit for their fantastic restaurants, interesting architecture and antique shops. The city of Eu, with its striking cathedral is well worth a visit and the cities of Dieppe and Abbeville are only 30 minutes drive away.It’s also well worth making the 40 minute journey to the beautiful seaside town of St Valery-sur-somme with its huge array of pretty boats moored where the Somme meets the sea. The shops are lovely here, as is the seafood! For glorious sandy beaches, Le Crotoy is a little farther north.If you feel like venturing further afield, Paris is only 2 hours away with Disneyland and Parc Asterix being favourites for the children.Day trips can be made to the bird sanctuary at Marquenterre, Le Touquet with its infamous golfing, Monet’s garden at Giverny and the battlefields of the Somme are on the doorstep as well as the amazing chateaux of Eu and Rambures.Activities* There are several riding schools in the area, catering for everyone from age three upwards.* There is lots of fishing in the region.* There are two quad biking tracks within 10 minutes drive.* The area is very popular for green-laning.* There are many fantastic brocantes every Sunday during the summer – highly recommended and a great and very French day out for all the family.* There is golf at Le Touquet.* There are wonderful cycle paths, walks and picnicking areas in the forest of Eu, two minutes away.* There is amazing wildlife to watch.* There are plenty of wonderful restaurants in the area.* There are expansive pebble beaches at Criel-sur-Mer and Mers-les-Bain and sandy beaches at Le Crotoy.* There’s the bird sanctuary to visit at Marquenterre.* There’s a great fish market and a casino at Le Treport.* There’s a water park, Bagatelle, near le Touquet.* Paris can easily be done in a day trip.* Disneyland and Parc Asterix can be done each in a day.* There’s Monet’s garden to visit at Giverny.* There’s a huge lake near Gamaches, about 10 minutes away, with canoeing, kayaking, waterski-ing and windsurfing.* There’s tennis in the nearby town of Neufchatel en Bray.* There’s fantastic shopping to be done in cosmopolitan Dieppe.

Grandcourt

Grandcourt is a typical pretty French country village with a breathtaking church and just two shops – a grocers, and that all-important bakers where after a three minute walk you will be able to buy your freshly baked bread and croissants each morning for breakfast. The village also has its own very authentic bar in the village square. The locals are very friendly and it’s impossible to pass someone in the street without them saying a friendly “bonjour”. The village is right on the edge of the beautiful Forest of Eu with its amazing cycle paths and walks and less than 10 minutes drive through the forest brings you to the picturesque market town of Blangy-sur-Bresle with its lively Sunday morning market and eclectic collection of shops as well as a large supermarket. Just 15 minutes drive away is the sleepy coastal town of Criel-sur-Mer with its huge expanse of beach.

“What a fabulous find”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2014

We had just the best time at The Cottage at Chateau de la Vallee, wish we had found this place years ago when the children were little, although they had a fab time now at 16 and 23! The pool and grounds were great and the area well placed for visits to the beaches etc. Recommend St Valery sur Somme and Le Treport for lunch watching the fishing boats. The cottage itself, although small, is beautifully furnished and equipped and I can highly recommend it for a holiday, it was helpful to have someone on hand who spoke English and Jan was fabulous. Perhaps next time we will upgrade to the Chateau!! Only downside was that we could not get Wifi anywhere in the cottage or grounds which was a bit of a pain as had booked the cottage knowing that we would need Wifi but plenty of cafes and tourism offices with Wifi locally that we could pop into every so often. Thank you to everyone who helps to keep this place so fab :)
