Our party consisted of my wife and I along with our daughter and her husband and their 3 year old daughter. Booking was simple and payment easy and the journey from the tunnel at Calais was no problem at all. Susan is as charming as she is efficient and she has thought of everything so that the accommodation rivals our own back home. The heated swimming pool was a joy and young children are spoilt for choice with the array of swings, slides and of course the very popular trampoline. There are bikes of all sizes provided for the guests. The weather by and large was fine and one evening we made use the barbi, sitting out until10.00pm when it was still light and warm. For my part I enjoyed the evenings watching the Euro 2012 football matches as the cottages are able to get UK TV channels - bonus.
There are plenty of places to visit and the coast at St Malo about 60 minutes away boasts of some long excellent beaches.
This is the place to visit if you have young children or are just a couple with a grown up family. Our grandaughter was never bored and the adults had a wonderful relaxing time.
