Our third visit after a four year interlude and everything was just as before; excellent, making The Magnolias our first choice for future visits to La Manche. Graham and Caroline are excellent hosts being welcoming and friendly. Spacious rooms with large en-suites add to the ambience of this substantial property located on a quiet minor road just outside the village... More

We booked a night here on the strength of all these great reviews. Well OK, the weather wasn't great, which never helps, but our experience of this b&b was decidedly average. From the quality of furnishings and fittings in the renovated bedroom through to the food, there was nothing to write home about. Graham and Caroline were friendly enough, but... More

Well located for exploring the Normandy coast, Graham and Caroline run a welcoming and comfortable guest house. The rooms are well appointed with good en suite facilities. Meals were excellent and generously portioned, and the wine just didn't stop flowing! Guests are given free run of a large purpose built guest 'wing', with TV, Wifi and tea & coffee making... More

Accommodation was very good with lots of room; the dinner meals were tasty with the food plentiful; Graham and Caroline were very friendly and obliging and couldn't do enough for us.

Our family spent 3 wonderful nights with Graham and Caroline in their beautiful Bed & Breakfast. I found their site while browsing the internet for lodgings in the area. It seemed too good to be true, but it was all we anticipated and far more. There were 5 of us, 2 adult children and the parents. We knew we'd made... More

We had a very relaxing & stress free 5 day stay with Graham & Caroline. The farmhouse has been renovated beautifully & is in a fantastic setting. Nothing was too much for our hosts & we were served lovely home cooked food every day & the wine & brandy flowed. Definately would go back again.
