“Great centrally located country cottage!?,”
Reviewed May 21, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

We stayed here for 3 weeks in late April-mid May and we had a great time. We went to France with the intention of visiting as many D-Day historical sites as possible and Rose Cottage was perfect for our needs. It is centrally located between all the D-Day landing sites and museums, although you need to tour the Normandy countryside as well as it has numerous small villages and memorials and monuments all around and within a short drive. The cottage is well equipped and in a country farm setting away from all the city noises but the towns are nearby when you need to shop for goods. The owners David & Debbie were easy to work with and a pleasure to do business with. Hopefully we will visit again in the near future!

“Home from home”
Reviewed December 13, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

I stayed here with my family for 1 week, great house with everything you would need, very close to the nearest town but far enough away to enjoy lazy afternoons.
Great location for all the Beaches and very close to the lovely town of Saint Lo.

I would recommend this if you want piece and relaxation.

“Absolutely perfect country cottage”
Reviewed August 16, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The location of Rose Cottage is amazing, the Normandy landing beaches and historical DDay battlegrounds are all within easy distance. The Rose Cottage is perfect as a base to explore the surrounding areas and take in the beautiful countryside. This is a great family holiday home with all the comforts you require. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a tranquil environment.

“Rose Cottage Everthing Promised By David and Debbie and Even More !!”
Reviewed February 29, 2016 for a stay in November 2015

Let me firstly say this something I would not ordinarily do to leave a review on a holiday or any other event, but I would consider it a miss justice not to thank David and Debbie for delivering everything it say's on the TIN !!!

After recently returning from our second visit to Rose Cottage the first being a much needed do nothing re-charge the batteries sort of holiday and our more recent lets go and discover everywhere we can we weren't disappointed on either occasion. The first speaks for it's self but this time we found the cottage to be a superb base for daily adventures to all of the D Day sites and the Normandy coastline picking our own destinations and lots of others we read about in the books and leaflets left by David and Debbie. They are all easy venue's within the day without any early morning starts the Beaches, Bayeux many morning markets Carentan is a must and also the fish market at Grand Camp Maisy and even Mont Saint Michel is an easy day out, returning to a friendly couple of beers at the Au Fil de l'Eau in Saint Fromond before returning home for a bar-b-que and a bit of RED.

If a bit of exercise is more your bag you are minutes away from the river Vire which has a cycle path and good walking all the way south to St Lo and north to Carentan, we discovered on a walk from Saint Fromond on the canal De Vire the ruined chateau which is the home to the migrating Storks nesting there in March every year but even when they are not resident the nest's themselves are a site to behold.

In finishing as I said earlier and you can see from other reviews the cottage is superbly appointed and meets all and more of what is promised so much so we have booked again to stay in September this year.

“A perfect example of French rural tranquility - pure heaven!”
Reviewed February 22, 2016 for a stay in October 2015

As regular travelers to France and to French cottages, this was far and above the best we've ever stayed in! The location is ideal for walking, sightseeing and getting a true taste of French rural life and the cottage is the perfect home from home with all the charm and luxury you look for in the ideal holiday home!

From the moment you arrive at Rose Cottage (aptly named with its beautiful trailing roses around the door!) you feel at home with its roaring log fire and lovely secluded garden. We arrived fully stocked with the essentials (bread, wine and cheese) picked up on the way at a great little supermarket in Le Molay Littry then realized that we really needn't have bothered as everything is so handy. Pont-Hebert is just nearby and has everything you need in a small French town ad Carentan is a beautiful market town with all the additional advantage of all the large supermarkets too.

Forgotten here is the all too frequent memory of French cottages with their creaky beds, minimal bathrooms and a kitchen comprising of a microwave which is supposed to cook everything if it's too cold for a barbeque! This is a haven! There's lots of room to relax in comfort, both in and outside, the kitchen is beautiful and a pleasure to eat and cook in, the beds are wonderfully comfortable and the bathroom is a pleasure!! In fact it is so comfortable, you really have to force yourselves to go sightseeing at times. The garden was beautiful even at the late end of the season and a real suntrap for reading and having a glass of wine. The sunsets are incredible and many a happy evening was spent in the sun lounge eating and watching the sun go down over the neighboring fields.

If you're a fan of the great outdoors, this is the perfect location as you can walk for miles from the cottage or in the nearby Cerisy forest where you can take a guide to pick mushrooms for your dinner or walk for hours spotting the occasional deer. If you like pretty market towns there's an abundance and the cottage is in the perfect location for visiting the war memorials and landing sites. What also really made this holiday perfect was the warmth and friendliness of the local people who went out of their way wherever you went to make you feel at home and welcome.

Overall, an outstanding holiday in the perfect cottage - never to be forgotten - we will definitely return many times in the future!
