Description from owner

Description

The coach house was built in 1834 to serve the local chateau, of which a tower remains. It became a barn for the local farmer after the war and was converted 25 years ago into two adjoining houses with the original features being retained where possible.

The coach house sits in 1000m2 of lawned garden, and has a large kitchen-diner and a sitting room each of which have their own terrace. There are two bedrooms upstairs and the downstairs sitting room has a sofa bed so can serve as a third bedroom.

Together with the tower of the old chateaux, now a family home, and an ancient converted barn opposite, the Coach House forms a secluded compound near the centre of a working village.

The Coach House is twenty minutes from the coast and and beaches, and from the historic port town of Dieppe, with its harbour and marina, shops, restaurants, museum and beach. On Saturday mornings Dieppe boasts one of France's greatest street markets.

It is set in beautiful rolling countryside

Location description from owner

The Haute-Normandie region

The countryside around St Vaast was the market garden for Paris. Well served by railways, the immediate area became the weekend retreat for wealthy Parisians who built grand houses including Bois de Moutiers designed by Lutyens house with garden by Getrude Jekyll and Chateau de Miromesniel, the home of Guy de Maupassant.

Dieppe is the closest port to Paris and has been for centuries the haunt for writers and artists in retreat from Paris and London, the most notable being Oscar Wilde. Dieppe's Saturday market is reputed to be the best in northern France and the shops are excellent. The town is well served by restaurants, particularly around the picturesque inner harbour.

The countryside is charming with chalk hills cut with wooded deep valleys with several large and ancient beech forests. The area is predominantly agricultural dotted with villages with the Pays de Bray being the centre for dairy products and the famous cheese Neufchatel being the oldest cheese in Normandy dating back 11th century. There are numerous footpaths and small lanes crossing the area making it ideal for country pursuits.

The coast is half and hour away and there are a range of beach resorts from bay of the Somme to the mouth of the Seine. For rainy days, there is a large aquatic centre and spa in Dieppe.

Saint-Vaast-d'Equiqueville

St Vaast is centrally located between Dieppe and the market town of Neufchatel, famous for its local cheese. The village is on the Avenue Verte, a long distance cycle and walking path which will one day link Paris to London. It is excellent walking territory and is also central to a number of Grande Randonees.

St Vaast is a working village with a vibrant community. There are two bakers, a village shop and adjoining bar, post office, primary school, tennis courts.

“comfortable simlicity”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2012

We liked the simplicity of this house and found it comfortable, clean, well furnished and the layout convenient. We really liked the large windows making it very light and bright inside and connecting with the large garden where we ate most of the time. We used the excellent village shops for fresh produce. We were surprised how much there is to do in the area - exploring Dieppe, the coast and the countryside. Les Moutiers at Varangeville is a must for any garden lovers. There are great walks in the forests and cycle rides. Rouen is a good day out too.

“Lovely stay, great memories!”

Reviewed 13 Mar 2012

We had a lovely stay and were delighted to discover this area, there is so much to do and see in this part of Normandy. We enjoyed the beaches and the charming town of Dieppe as well as discovering that the area is filled with history, WW2 history as well as several Chateaux from different ages within easy cycling distance from the house .The star attraction for us had to be the cycling, the Avenue Verte is great for family cycling as it is so safe. The barn has been beautifully converted, we enjoyed our bar-b-q's on the lawn-- lots of space for the kids to run around. We really didn't want to leave and will certainly be coming back again.

“Very Disappointing”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2011

The house was entered when we were not there. Towels for only 3 guest not 4 and quality of towels supplied was terrible, should only be used as rags or anilmals. Bed were okay in one room but childrens in the other. and terrible. Owner was very helpful when booking. Housekeeper i think just thought we were a general nuisance

We have been in touch with our disappointed clients. They returned to the house and found lights on and concluded had that someone entered while they were out. No one could have entered but, if leaving in daylight, it is easy to switch some lights on when thinking they are going off. They “felt our privacy had been invaded, not a great feeling” which we believe colored their stay – it’s a great shame. The beds were bought new in France in 2009 and are standard for adults and the towels bought at M&S in London in 2010.
