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.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      The welcome was very warm and the starter pack from Lyn nice to receive. The cottage is very comfortable but the stairs are tricky as they are quite steep. The low beams in the bedroom and on the mezzanine, which are stained the same dark colour as the ceilings, make it very easy to bang ones head, especially getting into or out of bed or walking onto the mezzanine area. We overcame this by hanging brightly coloured napkins from them at the likely point of contact. Whilst the lights over the kitchen units were quite bright there is no main light in the kitchen/dining area which, of an evening can be quite dim. The internet connection was excellent, there are a selection of english tv channels, not just the BBC world news as is often the case, and the garden was a pleasure to sit in after a days walking. It is quite a good area for walkers and there were plenty of maps and walking literature available together with local tourist material. The supermarket is about ten minutes away in the car. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for restaurants as the only one nearby appeared to have one set menu each day and the nearby town's one and only restaurant consisted of a pizza parlour. Directions to the property provided by Lyn were spot on. The weather, despite the forecast the week before our arrival, was brilliant making for an excellent week. If you like to be away from the hustle and bustle of life, walking or cycling and sitting each evening with your feet up and a drink and a book at hand, this is the place to do it.
