There is even a nuclear submarine (decommissioned of course!) which it is possible to walk around. Cherbourg itself offers some appealing architecture which can be observed on a stroll around its streets. The Thomas Henry Fine Arts Museum is well worth a visit with its hundreds of paintings and sculptures dating back to the fifteenth century.

Took our dog the garden has fence all around so she couldn't get out. Barfleur within 10/15min walk along road or beach. Small supermaket in Barfleur larger one about 10 min drive away. Lovely to wake up to view of beach and take dog for walk on empty beach. Would recommend house for peaceful break and hope to return.

While we were there the weather was perfect; we had daily excursion to various sites (all within 1-2 hr drive, normandy beach, Mont. St. Michell, Bayeux tapestry, etc); we gathered each evening by the pond with grogeous sunset, black swans in the water; our group was made of great cooks /foodies, so we cooked our dinners at the house. The kitchen is somewhat small but it was cozy, full of charm, and was well equipped with all cooking necessaries. The dining room and the living room were absolute joy to gather in at nights. The library is extremely well stocked with all manner of books. The steinway piano was a special treat given one member of our group was able to provide nightly music. Overall, I would go back to this manoir in a heart beat. The owner, Anthony, was so kind and helpful awnsering all our questions before our trip. The manager, Daniel, was resourceful in helping us arrange an overnight trip to Sark and providing useful informations such as various local towns' open market days. While all bedrooms were so charmingly and comfortably decorated; the tower master bedroom was exceptional with it luxurious tub and shower. Thank you Anthoy for opneing your home to us.

The garden is ideal for children as it is large, safely enclosed and with swings and a slide. The house is modern and well equipped with everything needed for a self catering holiday. We stayed two weeks and felt very at home. The shops are only 10 mins drive away and the beaches are beautiful, large and unspoilt. We wondered if we would find enough to do for two weeks but we could have stayed twice as long without running out. Nathalie couldn't have been more helpful, there to greet us even though we arrived very late at night and made sure we had everything we needed. Wifi would have been nice but overall we had a fantastic break.
