Enjoyed a very relaxing stay at this lovely rustic farmhouse. The grounds are secluded but have far-reaching views and it is an easy walk into nearby Brécey. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable. Andrew was very welcoming and gave us helpful tips on the local area where there is plenty to see and do.

Management response:

Thank you for your excellent review, I hope to have the pleasure of another stay in the future. A pleasure to host. Please come again. best regards Andrew

Met by Andrew who was so helpful and informative of the house, grounds and local attractions...
