We recently stayed with Phil and Jude with the specific purpose of visiting their gardens which were certainly not a disappointment, they were absolutely stunning, even though most flowers are now pas their best. So the B&B itself was secondary to our main purpose of the visit. However, this too was marvellous. Having run our own B&B in Normandy for... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. The B&B is run by English couple Jude and Phil, who are friendly and informative about the area. The room was beautifully decorated, and exceptionally clean. There is a residents lounge with tea and coffee facilities. There is information about places to visit in the room, which we found extremely helpful. The gardens are... More

Visited for the Le Mans Classic 2016. Phil & Jude were most welcoming and the house and superb gardens are a credit to them. Although around 45 minutes away from the circuit at Le Mans the journey is straight forward as they are only 10 minutes away from the D28 motorway. Lovely, friendly B&B, would certainly recommend.

A beautifully restored house, outbuildings and large garden - better than our hotel in Giverny and a quarter of the price. We found this place as a result of looking for a Roman site I wanted to visit not far away; in fact, their website has a vast amount of useful information on places to visit within an hour or...

Four years since our last visit. The gardens look evens better, a testament to the dedication both Phil and Jude have to their home. Great hospitality as always with some excellent restaurant recommendations. Phil booked a table for us on the Sunday evening in Neufchâtel. I really hope it isn't another four years until we return.

I stayed at La Basse Cour overnight while on my way to to Spain by motorcycle. I could not believe how welcoming and helpful my hosts were. The room was beautiful and the gardens lovely. The restaurant they recommended for dinner was excellent. I will be returning this year if they have room.

It was our second stay at La Basse Cour and we were welcomed back, by Phil and Jude, like old friends. As before, the room was spotless and contained everything 'one' would need for either a short, or, long stay. It's a very comfortable house with a fabulous garden containing a variety of peaceful places to sit, relax and drink... More

Found via Air BNB. Very reasonable rates, beautiful house and garden. Rooms are spacious and very, very clean. Great shower. Our hosts Jude and Phil provide a continental breakfast. Free parking. All you can hear in the garden are birds and frogs. Beautiful! Highly recommended.

We were travelling from the Eurotunnel to an area just past Le Mans and wanted to find a place to stay for a night. When we found ‘La Basse Cour’ it looked amazing so we decided to stay two nights and explore the area a little. We are so glad we did. The rooms were the best we’ve stayed in... More
