Putting aside the beautiful old farmhouse and our room itself, the lovely gardens and terraces set this apart from other places we stayed - a lot better than a lot of Sawdays! Comfy, clean bedroom and super shower. A guest sitting room with telly, books, drinks and wifi were an unexpected bonus.There was a photo album showing how the house... More

This place delivers everything it promises - and more. Perfectly situated for a stopover when travelling either direction on the autoroute, or as a base for a short break in Normandy. The rooms are very comfortable, quiet and charmingly colour-coded. The generous breakfast with homemade jams and marmalade etc satisfyingly kick starts the day. The hosts - Phil and Jude... More

Hello and thank you for your lovely review - we appreciate it very much and we're looking forward to your next visit. We've made a few updates to the rooms since last summer - nothing drastic, just some new carpets in the sitting room, new floor coverings in the bathrooms, fresh paintwork, some new sticks of furniture. Nothing drastic so... More

A very comfy stay. Everything wonderfully clean and spotless and very fine value at 70 euros a room per night. Breakfast very pleasant. What it isn't is the full Sawday/"Lost In France" experience with quirky quirkiness everywhere, pre-Revolution furniture etc. The renovations of the property make for a pristine, - and perhaps slightly clinical - stay rather than a trip...

Hi M We're pleased you enjoyed your stay and found everything comfy and in pristine condition - also that our restaurant recommendation was a hit, I think you mentioned "among the best you've had in France". Funnily, Sawday did offer to list us but we declined as they wanted to charge almost £1,000 for the honour! You're right on our... More

It is quite dismaying that there are one or two churlish comments about La Basse Cour on this website. One can only assume that these 'renegade' people simply do not appreciate that any B&B establishment is purely and simply the home of the hosts. Rules are clear about arrival times and within the parameters of this a warm welcome can... More

I don't pen many reviews and would normally review somewhere within a week of my stay, However, upon reading 'Mike6412's I feel I have to comment on some of the unfairness of his review. My wife and I stayed at La Basse Cour for a week during early September 2013, a period overlapped by Mike6412. Although I cannot recall his... More

We can recommend this beautiful B&B in the knowledge that you will not be disappointed. The hosts Jude & Phil are excellent and the rooms are of the highest standard with an addition of a lounge for the evening.

Hello again and thank you for the super review. But thank you even more for enjoying the house and the gardens - as you can tell, we don't work hard in the garden just to keep it to ourselves, it's definitely for sharing. :) You're right, we don't have a restaurant in walking distance unless you REALLY like walking!

What an absolute gem! Chosen originally at random, probably the best b&b we have ever used ... And there have been lots! This place is idyllic. Beautifully restored farm house, gardens a delight, room immaculate, warm welcome and helpful advice about what to do. (Phil and Jude are the perfect hosts). So pleased we booked an extra night.

Hello John and Gill We hope you'll be back, too - it was a pleasure for us and we're glad you enjoyed yourselves. Your borrowing the bikes also prompted me to fit those new bike tyres that I'd been putting off! The Mansonière Gardens at St Ceneri are super, aren't they?

just stayed for one night as a stop-over on the way elsewhere. welcome wasn't as warm as we got everywhere else and the town of Alencon is nothing special compared to other places in France.

As you were only here one night, perhaps you did not really have time to appreciate Alençon. Monday night when you stopped over, is when many French businesses have a day off so it would have been quieter than normal, though any day of the week I’ll admit it’s not Paris or Bordeaux! It’s a French town with a pretty... More

La Basse Cour is a diamond. Jude and Phil make your stay so enjoyable, the rooms are spotless, the hospitality special and the gardens absolutely wonderful. Lots of hard work and thought have gone into creating La Basse Cour which has resulted in an oasis of calm in a typical French village. Try La Basse Cour, you won't be disappointed.
