“Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Just returned from our 3rd visit at La Lande over the past few years. It was wonderful and gets better each year! Paul and Val are excellent hosts and would recommend this retreat to families or couples. We rented Barn Owl gite which i would recommend if you are two families sharing - it worked perfectly for us and as a treat we had Paul and Val cook for us on our last night - reasonably priced with excellent food and wine (getting restaurant quality food whilst your children are asleep- perfect!). I am sure we will return next year as there is so much to see in the local area. Thank you Paul and Val - see you soon!

We stayed for an evening meal, bed and breakfast at La Lande on our way from the south to the ferry at Cherbourg. It was superb! Our only mistake was not to have booked in for longer.
The upstairs 'Admiral' bedroom is unique, absolutely huge, beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean and has an lovely bathroom, seating area, fridge, tea/coffee making facilities (not always readily available in French hotels) and views over the delightful garden. Paul and Val could not have been more welcoming and have thought of everything to make their guests comfortable and able to relax. We had opted to have the evening meal and what a treat that was! It was served to us in the dining room and each one of the four courses was delicious, as was the wine. Val is an excellent cook . Breakfast was delicious,too and very plentiful. There was a lounge which we could have used, but the weather was so glorious that we walked in the extensive gardens and relaxed on the garden seats provided.
Bricquebec is a delightful town and the whole area is lovely with proximity to the sea.. We hope to return and make La Lande our base for a longer holiday without having to drive very far from the ferry port. Certainly to be recommended.

A+ property. Val and Paul were the perfect hosts. They were at hand with all their local knowledge, gorgeous breakfast every morning and always making you feel that nothing was too much trouble. La Lande is set in fabulous surroundings and extremely comfortable. Would definitely recommend a stay there if you are looking for somewhere convenient to Cherbourg and/or Normandy Beaches.

We stayed for two nights after arriving by ferry from Cherbourg. Even before we arrived, Val couldn't have been more helpful - wanting to know if we had any food allergies / dislikes that she would accommodate when preparing the evening meal and also providing a 20% discount code for Brittany Ferries.

The gites were full and we stayed in the B&B room. What a room! The bedroom is enormous with an extremely comfortable, large bed and there is a separate seating area with sofa, tv and fridge etc. The bathroom was spacious, the shower powerful and the towels thick and fluffy. In addition to this, there was the bonus of a separate, downstairs sitting room leading straight out onto the garden.

The entire garden is available to use, including loungers as well as dining tables and chairs. Val and Paul really do seem to have tried to think of everything and, if anything is required (we needed a corkscrew and a couple of wine glasses), it is no problem to fulfill the request.

We stayed on a DB&B basis. The food is truly superb. Val is an excellent cook. The evening meal is four courses and each one is extremely generous (as is the wine allocation!). Breakfast is also plentiful and fresh. I awoke both mornings feeling that I couldn't eat another thing after the meal the night before and yet was still unable to resist the gorgeous array of fruit, bread and croissants on offer.

Val and Paul are extremely friendly and welcoming and provide helpful information on local activities in the area and surrounding regions.

As for the farmhouse and barns themselves, they are tastefully decorated to a very high standard. I have long wanted to run a French farmhouse with gites and b&b and, if I ever have the chance to do so, I would want a property just like this one.

I cannot recommend La Lande enough. If you have the opportunity to stay here, take it. You won't regret it.

We had a wonderful stay at the "La Lande"! The apartment was very spacious and clean with a modern and bright interiour which was quite appealing. Beautiful and quiet is also the well-kept and large garden which offers sunbeds, tables and chairs to relax. Val and Paul, the British owners of the "La Lande", were excellent hosts. Breakfast was plentiful and beautifully served. Val and Paul have even organized ham and cheese specially for us. Another highlight were the dinners (4 courses!) which tasted deliscious every time and which were accompanied by good tasting wines.
We definitely recommend a stay at the "La Lande" and hope to be back one day.

A little bit of paradise in a wonderful piece of France. Val and Paul are perfect hosts and their place is a little gem, immaculate garden, beautiful apartments and a warm welcome! Kids loved the table football, the trampoline, the table tennis, the trees to climb on and the spectacular beaches close-by. We definitely want to come back.

We stayed in the B&B for one night before catching the Ferry from Cherbourg the next morning. The room was nice and the grounds are pretty and peaceful, despite being not far from the town of Bricquebec.
The English owners are very friendly hosts and not just the breakfast but the evening meal we treated ourselves too was delicious.
