The house is on one level with panoramic views front and back. Humbert is a village with lots of mixed working farms and friendly folk. Our house is situated in a particularly pretty part of the village, next to the stream the 'Brasse de Brosne', which gives the delightful tinkling sounds of flowing water. The large front & back gardens are securely fenced (child proof) and comprise an extensive lawn, a children's swimming pool (upon demand for July and August) and swings plus a paddock further back.

This has been our French family home for 25 years. During that time we have enjoyed it immensely and we want to share our experience to help you and your family have a good holiday in our property and the local region.
Victoria purchased this farmhouse in 1988
Humbert is on a small village situated in the pretty valley of the Bras de Bronne. In the winter the rainwater turns it into a small river but by May time it is a small stream and by June it has usually dried up. Humbert is on several walks recommended by the local tourist office. Therefore our house is in a beautiful rural setting. It is spacious, safe and secure. It has a microwave oven, washing machine, fridge/freezer and gas/elecrtic cooker. There is central heating as well as a 'feu de bois'. Free WiFi, UK and European TV (large DVD & Video collection) together with a good sound system and radio, table tennis and many indoor games.
Cordonnerie Farm takes its name because it was not only a working farm but is also were the cobbler of the village worked. It was built before the French Revolution. Montreuil and its environs saw the birthplace of the revolution. Our predecessors probably took their part in this historic event. To this day, the French celebrate the revolution in a Son et Lumier at the Citadel in Montreuil at the beginning of August. The original house was extended into the barn during its modernisation. It has wooden beams throughout and therefore retains its 'farmhouse' character.
Canoeing is available on the River Canche at Montreuil. Although Le Touquet is the closest, Belle Dune and Hardalot are not much further. There is a popular children's theme park called Bagatelle within 20 minutes. Some of the greatest battles in English History have been fought within 20 minutes drive. (Crecy, Agincourt, the Somme)
