This is a great family friendly home which is well equipped for the number of guests it accommodates .
This has been our second visit and we all enjoyed it as much as our first visit.
Thank you Jackie and Tim for your helpfulness as well
We recently stayed here with friends and had a lovely relaxed weekend in a great house.
The house is a perfect home away from home with everything you could possibly need. The dining room is great, the lounge spacious yet cosy and the bedrooms are tastefully decorated with extremely comfy beds!
The outside areas were also great with table space and a BBQ which pleased the men folk and their love of fire!
Plenty of places to visit in the local area made this an even better break and we will definitely be back to visit again.
Cannot recommend highly enough.
Recently stayed in this beautiful farmhouse and would definitely recommend.
The property is tastefully furnished with big comfy sofas, the wood burner dominates the living room and is perfect for winter evenings. All the bedrooms are light and airy, each with its own style and colour theme, the bed was very comfortable and the linen is of good quality. The kitchen is fully equipped and the dining area perfect for a large get together. The location is idyllic with surrounding garden with plenty of privacy. We had a lovely time and would certainly book again.
As soon as we walked into the place we felt like it was a home from home, everything that you could possibly need, and more, was there! There were seven of us in our party including a 2 year old and we found that there was more than enough room and didn't feel cramped at all.
We were met by Val who was great and showed us around the farmhouse explaining where everything was and how things worked.
The farmhouse has been renovated and decorated to a high standard and has still kept hold of its character.
If you're coming in numerous cars there is ample parking. Great little grassed area for kids to run around in.
The farmhouse is located on the edge of Percy which has got a number of Boulangeries and a charcuterie, which are only a couple of minutes drive or if you're feeling adventurous a 15 minute walk. A bit further out is a supermarket which caters for everything you may need, including 24hour petrol pumps, cheapest petrol we found.
It's an ideal base to explore this part of Normandy with the DDay beaches and museums a 40 minute drive away as well as Bayeux. Mont Saint Michel is much the same in the opposite direction with St.Malo a bit further along the coast. Even if you wanted to explore the top end either side of Cherbourg such as Barfleur it wouldn't take more than an hour to get there.
I would highly recommend this property for a holiday base, and have done! It's somewhere I'm hoping to go back to before too long.
We visit this lovely house every year and it is superbly equipt to cope with a large party of 12. The location is perfect with a small walk into the village of Percy. Whilst the house itself is set in a quiet rural location.
Would definitely recommend this house as a relaxing break and will be back next year for sure!!
There were 14 of us plus dog in our family group, ages ranged from 8 weeks to 70 years and the house suited us all with a large comfortable sitting room and great dining area that sat us all. The furnishings are comfortable, but not precious so we could relax with children about. Equipment is comprehensive with all you need, except one or two fans would have been welcome on one very hot night. Large outdoor area with two meadows and small garden. Fencing is two wires and no gate on the drive, so not fully secure for young children or dogs. Good outdoor furniture with cushions, but no loungers. A lot of trees so not easy to find sunny spots early morning and evenings but we did enjoy eating most of meals at the large outdoor tables.
Our favourite beach was Le Petit Kairon, near Granville, about 40 minutes drive. Good walks at Abbaye de Hambye. Good walking for the dog in the forest at St. Sever. Food at Cafe de Gare in Percy was great.
We were most impressed with the French health service when the baby had to spend two and a half days in hospital in St. Lo with a, thankfully mild, dose of Viral Meningitis.
Booking the house and ferry were made easy by the prompt and friendly advice from Jackie. We were met on arrival by the caretaker with everything clean and in good order. Three sets of keys, so sensible!
Definitely a house to be considered for large family holidays.
