Just returned from the Normandy Beach B & B, run by Adrian and Karen. We found this retreat on a bikers forum and booked back in January, booking in advance is recommended to avoid disappointment. Our party consisted of 2 bikes, 4 adults. We arrived Sunday afternoon in Arromanches to a warm welcome and an open fridge of free beers, cider and wine! We were able to choose our rooms ourselves which was nice and a change from being allocated rooms, as is the norm. Lovely establishment with a rustic feel, lovely farm house style breakfast room/sitting room, which we were invited back to after our supper for a glass of calvados. Rooms were comfortable and what was nice no TV or radio! Plenty of tea/coffee making facilities, bottle water, hairdryer, iron. Covered area for the bikes, space to sit out, after a long ride, to enjoy a cold beer and chat about the day. Breakfast was plentiful and if you like porridge, do not miss the opportunity to sample Karen's amazing recipe - magnifique! Adrian is vey knowledgable and has plenty of stories to while away a few hours. We chatted to the other residents as if we'd known them for ages, a real friendly place and I would definitely return . Arromanches is a delightful town and is well worth a few days stop over to explore and take in the history of D Day, as well as the amazing beach and surrounding area.
