Stone cottage sleeps 8 -10 in a secluded valley, alongside the river Noireau, with views of rocky cliff on one side (covered in wild flowers in spring and summer), wooded hills on the other and the riverside garden which runs for 0.5 km. There are extensive grounds to walk and play in - a wilderness of fun or tranquility.
The stone cottage dates back to 1860. We bought it in 2002 and had it totally renovated so it still holds the beauty of an old building but a modern conversion inside to provide comfort!
3 lawned gardens- first in front of river by our wood store barn, great for sunbathing, paddling, swimming (bring croc shoes!) and enjoying tranquility while listening to the river.
Second garden is to the side of the house with easy access inside and big outdoor BBQ facilities and night time dining- great for ball games too. The third runs the length of the grounds alongside the river - lovely for walks, painting, birdwatching etc. Regular sightings of otters, red kites, kingfishers and red squirrels.
