This property, the original cider press, has been most sympathetically and imaginatively converted to provide charming accommodation for two.

The ground floor is open plan and features an original cider press, a galley-style kitchen with fridge, hob, microwave oven, Shaker-style breakfast bar and a comfortable seating area. There is a shower room with basin and WC on the ground floor and the oriignal Cider Press is used as a feature in the open tred staircase which leads you up to the mezzanine level with double bed, sofa and clothes hanging space.

There is an i-pod docking station, TV with DVD (no aerial so this is just for watching DVDs on), BBQ, bikes for your use and outdoor seating (this is communal).

The property is surrounded by beautiful countryside and has views from the front over the surrounding apple orchards.We have...

A lovely bolthole for a week's writing in a very quiet rural location. Hope to return at some point, perhaps with family to stay in one of the lovely larger houses. Can wholeheartedly recommend.

Additional amenities & feature info
The Cider Press has a breakfast bar, rather than dining table but there is outdoor seating for warmer weather. As the stairs are open tred, for safety reasons, we do not encourage guests with children to rent this building - it really is designed for couples or as an annexe to The Farmhouse and Barn.

About the neighbourhood
Boudet is agreat base for keen cyclists to stay at whilst exploring Normandy. We are moments from the Flers-Domfront veloroute or Voie Verte (a disused railway line cycle track) which forms part of an extensive network. This offers an excellent and safe opportunity to get about and explore the area - you can even cycle to Mont St Michel. Do bring your own bikes. We have some on site but they are better used for short local trips!There is an open air swimming pool at Mortain (15 min drive), horse riding is available near Barenton. Bungee jumping can be found near Clecy.Golf can be played at Clecy, Granville, Dol de Bretagne and Bagnoles de L’Orne whose golf course is closest to us. It is a beautiful 9 hole course designed by Harold Becker in 1925 and situated in the middle of the Andaine f... more

How to get there
Airport: Rennes: 99.0 km
Railway: Flers: 32.0 km
Ferry: Caen Ouistreham: 113.0 km
Cars are essential when on your visit as the property is in the heart of the countryside. We recommend travelling by ferry from the UK as our property is less than an hour and a quarter from Caen's ferry port and it is very relaxing and direct way to get to us.

Travelling by Ferry:

Portsmouth - Caen (Britanny Ferries). Ouistreham port 14km north east of Caen is 1.15 hrs away, served by Britanny Ferries from Portsmouth. 6 hour day time crossing or 7 hour overnight. There is a high speed cat during the peak season. This is three and three quarters hours.

Portsmouth - St Malo (Brittany Ferries). St Malo is about an hour and half from Boudet. The crosing is eight hours so this is a better option if you decide to travel overnight.

Portmouth- Cherbourg (Britanny Ferries and Cond...
