It was our second stay at La Basse Cour and we were welcomed back, by Phil and Jude, like old friends. As before, the room was spotless and contained everything 'one' would need for either a short, or, long stay. It's a very comfortable house with a fabulous garden containing a variety of peaceful places to sit, relax and drink... More

Found via Air BNB. Very reasonable rates, beautiful house and garden. Rooms are spacious and very, very clean. Great shower. Our hosts Jude and Phil provide a continental breakfast. Free parking. All you can hear in the garden are birds and frogs. Beautiful! Highly recommended.

We were travelling from the Eurotunnel to an area just past Le Mans and wanted to find a place to stay for a night. When we found ‘La Basse Cour’ it looked amazing so we decided to stay two nights and explore the area a little. We are so glad we did. The rooms were the best we’ve stayed in... More

A very comfortable B & B amid a region of picturesque small villages in the French countryside and a real bargain as well. Hosts Phil and Jude immediately make you feel at home in this beautifully restored old house and their extensive gardens are not to be missed either. We would definitely return and recommend it very highly!

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
