“Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

What a wonderful find this was. Paul and Val are the most natural of hosts who have recently taken over La Lande, which consists of two gites and bed & breakfast accommodation in Normandy - close to Cherbourg. We stayed for one night in the bed & breakfast accommodation and can't speak highly enough of the quality and of the building, furnishings and Val & Paul themselves. The bed & breakfast accommodation consisted of a living room, dining room and upstairs a huge, vaulted bedroom and en-suite bathroom.
We choose to eat in and were served a superb home cooked four course meal and wine at a very reasonable price. The highlight was Val's Coq au vin - there was enough for at least four people (of course we just about squeezed it in between us both!)
We can't recommend staying here highly enough!

What a find! we stayed for 1 week in April 2011. We had a lovely time and cant wait to return. Paul and Val are excellent hosts and make you feel very welcome. The trampoline, paddling pool, games and bikes for the family made everyday fun. Thank you for making our holiday special.

Room Tip: We had the barn owl gite

Looking for somewhere to rest en-route to Portugal, I found La Lande via various websites and eventually on 'anormandygite.com'. Emma and Simon have a wonderful place and a lovely family. I was made to feel so welcome that I stayed cheerful all the way through northern France. The rooms are bright and clean, and furnished with great taste and care. There is a pretty town an easy walk away, with excellent restaurants and scenery. It was a fantastic start to the trip and I would recommend this spot to anybody. Book for at least a week, you will only regret leaving!

This place is such a great find! Really easy to get to, less than half an hour from Cherbourg. Emma & Simon are the new British owners & made us so welcome; truly a 5 star B & B. Enormous bed we didn't want to leave; beautiful room & lovely breakfasts. Their gites looked excellent; we may be back to stay in one! Emma's 4 course dinner was simply delicious from start to finish. Early eve sightings of the resident barn owl were very exciting. Highly recommended!

  • Liked — Warm welcome, easy relaxed atmosphere & great food.

With La Lande owners Ted and Linda as your hosts, you just can't go wrong. They'll whip up a four-course meal with wine for a nominal supplement or make your dinner reservations at a local place that will blow your socks off. Ted gives the most fantastic, in-depth and thoughtful D-Day tours around. Plus, they're private, too! Do not pass up the opportunity - he is a tremendous guide for history buffs and novices alike!! The B&B itself is a wonderful 1789 farmhouse that the couple has lovingly renovated for 16 years. You will want for nothing there - fluffy towels, comfy beds and fantastic bathtubs made for soaking will rejuvinate you immediately! And room rates are a bargain to boot!

This is the Rolls Royce of B&Bs. Run by an English couple, Ted & Linda Malindine. We were over for a French wedding. It wouldn't be an understatement to say we were treated like royalty. Nothing was too much trouble - even to giving my husband a couple of dog biscuits to pacify their Airedale on our return in the early hours of the morning. In the event, he didn't even woof - he's as friendly as his owners. This really is a little bit of paradise - and all for between 54 to 62 Euros a night. We only ate breakfast there because we were being entertained by our French friends. But from the delicious wafts coming from the kitchen, dinner would definitely be worth trying. It's the best B&B we've ever stayed in - a warm welcome, deep comfort and plenty of fluffy towels. I think you can find them in the Sawdays guide.
