Stable Cottage - A Relaxing Retreat in Picardie

Bedrooms 2
Space 538 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2 two bedroom gites with separate private gardens

These lovely properties are available in Picardie for relaxing self-catering holidays, short breaks and long weekends. Stable Cottage and The Old Dairy are situated in the quiet rural village of Boufflers

The properties are situated in the charming area of "The Seven Valleys". The market towns of Auxi-le-Château, Abbeville and Hesdin are all a short drive away from Boufflers. A Sunday market can be found on the coast at St-Valery. Boufflers is well located for the area’s coastal towns, the historic battlefields of the Somme, Crécy and Agincourt.

Stable Cottage has a large sitting/dining room with a kitchen area, a utility room, a double bedroom, a triple bedroom and a bathroom.

The Old Dairy has a spacious sitting room, a dining room, a country kitchen, two bedrooms (one double and one twin bedroom), a bathroom and accommodates four people, plus a baby.

The village of Boufflers is approximately an hour away from Boulogne. Dieppe and Calais are just over an hour away, via excellent motorways. The superb "Côte d’Opale" is about 30 minutes away, where you’ll discover wide sandy beaches and fishing villages with fish stalls and fish restaurants all along the coast

Boufflers is situated between the two market towns of Auxi-le-Château and Crécy-en-Ponthieu. To the north is the larger town of Hesdin, to the south is Abbeville - and the beautiful city of Amiens, with its canals and cathedral, is less than an hour away. Paris can be visited easily in a day, as can the Belgian capital of Brussels.

The area around Boufflers is very tranquil, with the mediaeval battlefields of Crécy and Agincourt not far away. Historic sites from the two world wars - including the battlefields of the Somme and the Menin Gate memorial - are an easy drive away

Stable cottage, in the village of Boufflers, retains many of its old features - such as exposed beams - but at the same time has modern day comforts and standards. The accommodation is all on one level, which makes it suitable for those with mobility difficulties. Electric radiators are fitted in all the rooms for the cooler months, along with a log burner in the spacious lounge.

Entering the cottage, you come into a large sitting/dining room with plenty of comfortable seating and a built-in log fire. There is a television with Sky Freeview and a DVD-player with a selection of DVDs.

About Malcolm Bailey

My wife Carole and I decided to change careers and left teaching to pursue a more relaxed life style and culture. The peace and tranquility of this property is extremely relaxing and infectious. Our rental business went live in May of this year following a period of renovation to both Stable Cottage and The Old Dairy.

Malcolm Bailey purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Malcolm Bailey chose Boufflers

The rural location and the plot seemed to work for us, it offers a very different environment to the life we had in the UK. Of all the properties we looked at, in terms of offering a reasonable business return, this was the one which seemed to have the right balance. Although Saturday changeovers can be a little manic sometimes for the rest of the week we can get on with the other things in life like reading and writing

What makes this cottage unique

Lifestyle, Historical landscape - Agincourt, Crecy, The Somme, Second World War V1 & V2 launch sites.

Restaurants. Reasonable proximity to the UK to visit friends and family as well as offering a real experience of rural France for those who visit us.

A relaxing stay in really lovely accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was really fantastic and was well equipped with everything we needed for a snug winter stay in Northern France. We were very impressed by the cleanliness of the accommodation. The log burner provided a relaxing focus in the evenings and the electric heaters coped well with the cold weather.

Acceuil chaleureux et dépaysement à la campagne

  • 5 of 5

Nos hôtes anglais nous invitent a apprécier la qualité de l’accueil 'made in england' dans la magnifique vallée de l'Authie.

Sachons apprécier les cadeaux de bienvenue ainsi que les chaines de télé 100% anglaises.

Le gite est propre, très bien équipé avec une longue terrasse, un grand jardin et une belle chambre 'victorienne'.

Idéal pour un séjour au vert, tout près de la mer, pour améliorer son anglais... Je recommande vivement cette ravissante location.
