Back in France again and our journey back from the south to Cherbourg, meant La Vieille Abbaye was perfect, allowing us 1.5 hours to the ferry the next day. This time we stayed in the Luxury Suite which again allowed us as a family of 5 to be together. After a very long journey we arrived around 7pm and were...

Stayed in the converted barn for a week with my son and daughter-in-law and my two grandchildren (5 and 3). It was a huge five bedroom rustic stone building which had been lovingly converted into a perfect family space. It had been lovingly decorated by Kate to the perfect level of French shabby chic which meant it was comfortable and...

We booked the whole place - 5 en-suite bedrooms for 6 of us. Enough space in each of the 'suites' to be on your own and a lovely open plan sitting room/kitchen/dining area for us all to come together. There was plenty of everything, linens, towels, well stocked kitchen etc. Kate (the owner) was so welcoming and encouraged us to...

Lovely rural "real farm" location handy enough to Caen and the ferry terminal. Excellent (huge) room (self-catering, ensuite, luxurious) with meals served in an equally cavernous ding area with a roaring fire. Friendly welcome, good food and excellent accommodation. As mentioned this is a real working farm, so "city folk" should be aware that means animals (very cute goats and...

We were looking for a stopover on our way to the Charante Maritime and needed a bed and breakfast that could sleep a family of 5. Not an easy task, as most only offer a room for 4. We stumbled upon this place and realised that this could easily accomodate us. Our room had a large double bed, two single...

It was a pleasure to look after you. We will of course look into raising the height of the stair gate. This is the first time that this point has been raised so rest assured that it will be addressed.

We arrived on the 5th June and departed on the 8th. Five men and one young lady in two WW2 Jeeps. We started each day with a great breakfast and a welcoming smile from the Owner. Each day after going here there and everywhere and seeing as much as we could. The opportunity to relax either outside or within our...

We were part of a group of 12, staying a week during the DDay Celebrations in June. We stayed in the Gite, a five bedroom self contained property.The Gite is part of a family run working farm, so there is plenty to see. It is a little off the beaten-track but still has easy access to Caen (around half hour...

Very nice and clean room, excellent breakfast, lovely service. Kate was always very helpful and friendly, it was such a nice time, we would always come back. Children had great fun in the playarea or watching the sweet animals. The dog is also great, my daughter fell in love with her. I hope we can come back one day.

“all were great but all but one were up a wrought iron spiral staircase which may be tricky with the very young or very old.”

“We had a fantastic self-catering room. It was huge with the bathroom alone as big as most bedrooms. I haven't seen the other rooms but no doubt they are equally as nice.”

“There is a double/twin room on the ground floor, ideal for elderly guests or the less mobile. All the other rooms are similar and could be used as family rooms if needed.”
