It was our first stay and in spite of superb reviews we were not quite sure what to expect. But we are totally won over, everything more than exceeded expectations. Kathy and Martin are just the perfect hosts and their home a delight. We stayed two nights and we will remember the dinners in the evenings for a very long... More

This was our second stay here, the first a couple of years ago. The welcome was warm and friendly from Martin and Kathy and the room quirky and unique with a splendid antique four poster bed. The food was very tasty and plenty of it and the wine and conversation flowed. An early start with a hearty breakfast sent us... More

Our decision to stay at Le Canard au Parapluie Rouge, to break our journey from England to Portugal, has to be one of the best we've ever made. Everything was perfect: our delightful room (the Manor Suite) with its extremely comfortable four-poster bed, relaxing seating area and views over the pretty garden; Kathy & Martin’s welcome (it felt like meeting...

Our 5th visit to Cathy and Martin once again started our holiday perfectly. Half way between Calais and our Mediterranean destination, the welcome, hospitality and comfort experienced by adults, children and dog remain unsurpassed. Great food, great room, great people, great price. Just don't book them up until we have our dates confirmed for next year!

I'm reluctant to write this review because I don't want to find it fully booked. We've stayed six times. It's impossible to find anything better in every respect. All you read about Ruby,Martin and Kathy's gem is true. You will not be disappointed in any way.

We went to visit after our wedding as Kathy & Martin could not attend, as usual the atmosphere was relaxed and very attentive, this is out 4th visit and I am amazed how two people can make your stay feel special every time. We met some interesting people who also were repeat visitors and as usual Kathy's cooking is excellent... More

We simply love this place. We came back again this year and planned our trip to France to ensure that we stayed at Le Canard on both the outward and return trip. Kathy and Martin gave us such a warm welcome. It was lovely to enjoy the beauty of their garden and the comfort of their home. As before, the... More

We have just returned from four great days with Martin and Kathy and not forgetting their lovely Labrador Ruby. We stayed there with our son and daughter in law to explore that part of the beautiful Loire valley. Martin and Kathy are wonderful hosts. Their warmth and generosity of spirit permeates the whole house, creating a wonderful ambience. This is... More

Following a recommendation, my wife and I booked an overnight stop on our way to our place in Spain. We wished we had stayed longer. Kathy and Martin made us so welcome and were wonderful hosts throughout our short stay. Kathy cooked a great meal using home grown vegetables and delicious rhubarb picked fresh by Martin in their lovely garden.... More

We so wanted to stay here again that we altered our holiday dates to get a room. We always try to have two nights here at the beginning of our holiday as it is so relaxing and dog friendly with plenty to see and Martin is always happy to advise on new dog walks. Kathy continues to demur over her... More
