Laurel House is a detached single story house with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. It is in a rural area but not too isolated. It is set back from a minor country road. It is finished to a high standard with modern facilities and nice furnishing.

The lounge has seating for 6 and Sky TV (with UK channels) with DVD. There is a CD player & radio. There is also a piano. The lounge opens onto the patio with barbecue and seating. The kitchen is spacious, modern and well equipped with gas oven/hob, microwave, toaster, fridge, freezer, washing machine and drier. There is a wide range of crockery, pots and pans and small appliances (kettle, electric can opener, coffee percolator etc) and vacuum cleaner and cleaning material/brushes.

There are 3 bedrooms, two with double beds and one with twin beds and an extra single folding bed is available. All have quality mattress and linen and 2 pillows per person. All have heating.

There is a fully equipped bathroom with a separate shower cubicle, bath, vanity unit with mirror , WC and heated towel rail. Shower gel and soap are also provided. All rooms are on one level. It has electric heating and constant hot water at no extra charge. All towels and bed linen are included.

Whether a family, or a group of friends Laurel House is ideal for your vacation. It offers peace and quiet yet only 10 minutes away from the local town of Hesdin with its history, cafes, restaurants and shops (5 supermarkets) plus the new swimming pool, sauna & 10 pin bowling complex. In the opposite direction is the small town of Beaurainville (2 supermarkets) which is only 5 minutes drive away. Further afield there are the cathedral towns of Montreuil, Abbeville, Amiens and Rouen and of course Paris is only 21/4 hours away so is easily a day trip. There are many sandy beaches within a half hour drive such as Berck plage and Le Touquet.

If you wish to stay in, there is plenty of space to relax and the 1 acre fully enclosed flat grass recreational area is ideal for children where they can play in safety. Indoors there are board games as well as tabletop football and a small pool table ideal for keeping the children occupied.There is a patio (covered) with BBQ and seating and a 1 acre fully enclosed level grassed area at the far end of the property that can be used for relaxing (has garden seating) or sports (boules, badminton/tennis all with equipment & net), goal posts (footballs provided), cricket, children's paddling pool). This is in addition to a garden with orchard and basket ball stand.

Laurel House is suitable for holidays at any time of the year - it is fully heated all year and in the winter months and there is a wood burning stove for extra warmth if necessary so it is ideal for Christmas and New Year holidays.

We are in a rural area and the internet access is not as advanced as in the UK - there is no internet on the telephone lines or cable yet. We have mobile broadband but please note it is very expensive to use. Iphones work well and all phones are automatically connected to a French network so you will be a able to make and receive calls as well as surf the internet on iphones etc.

For 2015 we have a new caretaker to look after the property for us when we are not available. He is English and lives less than 10 minutes away and has seven years experience looking after either his own of other people's holiday accommodation in the area. He will arrange to meet you on arrival to show you round, and generally make sure your holiday runs smoothly and is contactable in the event of any problems.

The Nord-Pas-de-Calais region

Nord Pas de Calais is a farming area and this becomes apparent as you drive through the countryside and see the vastness of the landscape used for agriculture. The history of the area is in abundance: Montrueil-ser-Mer which is a fortified town made famous by Victor Hugo and Les Miserables. Visit Arras with its history and lovely squares or follow the history of the First and Second World War sites and museums throughout the area. The battlefield at Agincourt is 20 minutes away. The long sandy beaches of the Cote d'Opale and the resort of Le Touquet-Paris-Plage are only 30 mins away. This is famous for its boutique shops and race track and is the resort visited by Parisians.


Hesdin is a pretty market town with the rivers of the Canche and Ternoise meandering through the town. A bustling and colourful market is held on Thursday mornings covering the town square and side streets. Hesdin has a wealth of history and many superb restaurants and cafes. The tourist information office is on the main square. Bikes can be hired in Hesdin square during April to September.

There is a historic chateau and winery at nearby Fressin.

Contes is a quiet peaceful village with its own fishing lake and Laurel House is just 2 minutes walk from Hesdin Forest for walking or cycling.

Activities locally available are horseriding, fishing, canoeing, walking and cycling
