The best of times

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in this cottage and will have a lifetime of great memories.

The accomodations are perfect - the home is very clean and includes everything you could need for your holiday. The size is bigger than expected. All the furnishings were comfortable. The wifi worked fine.

THe location is what makes this home prefect. It is centered in Normandy in a location where you canreach everything for a day trip. It is included right in the middle of 3 of the Lonely Planet best drive in Frances - the cheese tour, the Monet tour and the D-day tour. We visited sites in all and always make it back early enough to relax in the lovely grounds.

We recommend this home to all - the Websters will show you a great time.

Short break in Normandy

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this accommodation. It is ideal for exploring this area of Normandy and the Gite provides more than adequate facilities.Mr and Mrs Webster(the owners) are very friendly and helpful and have done a wonderful job in renovating Cherry Tree Cottage and its surrounding gardens.We found that all decriptions of the property were accurate.

lots of small kids in Aug!

  • 3 of 5

We went as a family with two older children as on the reviews I read it said it was suitable for us. I would say this was a place for familys with small children in August as we found there to be lots of them, they cycle and look into the gite all the time, one litle boy even knocked his head on the door glass as he couldnt see in clearly! So if you are past the point of being around small children dont go in August!

The Gite is also near the Sienne River so there is no beach nearby, the nearest one that was really nice was in Trouville which was a good half an hour drive away. (As with 'all' other places a good twenty minutes away from the Gite). There is lots of lovely countryside nearby and there are a lot of sites to go and see as long as you dont mind having a drving holiday and using this as a base.

It also said we would have wifi, but the owners went back to England when we arrived and seemed to take it with them!! So make sure you get all your details and postcodes needed for travelling around as you wont be able to look on the internet. There welcoming pack was just full of papers and magazines that were left by other visitors and I wouldnt really call it a welcome pack.

No I dont think I would recommend this to family or freinds even though we did have a lovely holiday but that was due to going out and about. The cleaning wasnt done to a very high spec, there were cobwebs all over the ceiling and in the corners and it just didnt feel very clean.

Owner's Response: We would agree with the comments regarding the children, we pride ourselves in providing a safe and secure place for children of all ages to enjoy their holidays an inportant part of which is making new friends and and playing games, our facilities bring out the best in children. Any age and nationality are able to join in together and play together under the watchfull eye of their parents in our extensive and coulerful gardens. For those wishing to have a quieter break most of the rest of the year is ideal for just that. We do not claim to be near sandy beaches as we are in a rural environment where the beauty of the Normandy countryside can be experienced.

Great Family Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had a great family holiday at Cherry Tree Cottages. The location was fantastic for the local attractions and amenities.

The children happily played outside in the lovely gardens, in fact we struggled to get them in as they loved the open space. Des and Shiela are very welcoming and very approachable if you need assitance or guidance.

The location is very peaceful and relaxing and we would definatley take the family again.

I would reccomend Cherry Tree cottages to all.

Great space for an unbeatable price

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four stayed here for a week in June. The apartment was clean and spacious, the hosts were very helpful and the location was great for exploring the area, including Honfleur, D-day sites, Bayeux tapestry and Etretat. A car is essential, as this is a rural setting.

Charming Normandy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Visiting from the US with our two young adult daughters, we were looking for a base from which to explore Normandy. Cherry Tree Cottages was the perfect location. It was only 10 minutes to Honfleur with groceries, dining, and shops. The easy access to the motorway made sightseeing trips to Rouen, Mont St Michel, the Bayeaux tapestry, Caen, all very easy.

As it turned out, the cottages were even more charming in person than they appeared on the website. Clean, well equipped kitchen, comfortable furniture and beds, plenty of space. Des and Sheila couldn’t have been better hosts. They even had everyone over to watch the England/US world cup soccer match. And we thoroughly enjoyed all the other guests. It was a perfect quiet country retreat and we hated to leave it for our stay in Paris.
