Sue and Tom are kind, thoughtful and welcoming hosts and it feels just like home from home. Gorgeous countryside, brimming with wildlife, there is always something to look at and the Creuse scenery is so calming,whilst the people are friendly and helpful.

Goats and pigs to watch whilst the sun goes down and the BBQ is on. Lovely villages nearby to look around and scenery to die for. Plenty of wood for the wood burner if needed or BBQ and also to heat up the hot tub. Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend. Julie and Peter were very friendly and full of local knowledge and small holding experience which they were happy to chat about.
