The barn has been modernised to a very high standard with beautiful bathrooms, but still maintains the original character throughout with exposed beams. Everything about the cottage is quality and lived up to all our expectations and then some. Rhona and Phil are on hand if you need anything and are the perfect hosts. The welcome pack was a lovely thoughtful touch and enjoyed by all, especially the little jars of preserves. Many thanks Rhona and Phil we had a wonderful stay and will be returning.

The facilities are fantastic, everything which could possibly be needed is provided and is of a high standard. The garden is huge and totally secure, our dogs just loved it! All set in the gorgeous Normandy countryside. A perfect holiday location, thank you.
