“Lovely location.”

Wonderful location. Clean enough but not up to the standard of other gites we have stayed in. A lot of dust (particularly on the wooden stairs) and cobwebs. Internet access was extremely poor. I had to go outside to get a signal. When I mentioned this to the owner I was challenged on how old my iPad was (one year) and then told I shouldn't bring work with me on holiday! Mostly well equipped but lacked suitable oven gloves and decent frying pan. However it was well supplied with saucepans if you wanted to cook for an army. We counted ten in all! Couldn't light the oven as there were no instructions. Turned out I needed matches. A few were provided. Fridge was definitely on the small size compared to other gites. Nice and warm and very cosy.

Management Response
Apr 25, 2015
Thank you for reviewing the Barn and we take all feedback serious however, we would like to point out that it is very unfair to criticise the Barn at the end of your holiday when you are sitting in the car ready to go which gives us no chance to address the issues. Internet access is available and other guests have used it with little problems in the past, although the signal can be weak at times as we are very rural, and the comment regarding work was meant as a joke but you obviously did not appreciate it. We are looking at a system to improve the strength of the connexion, particularly with iPads, but I have just responded to your comment whilst sitting in the Barn with my PC, testing the connectivity and it is fine.
The Barn is fully cleaned between guests and should there have been a problem with dust and cobwebs we would have addressed it immediately. Admittedly the oven glove was not there but there was a pan holder - a new oven glove is now in the drawer, as is a new frying pan (there were 2 small deep French style frying pans and a normal size pyrex one). We added extra pans in various sizes so guests have a great choice to use. The instructions for the oven are in the information pack in the kitchen drawer although I did show you on the first night how to light the oven, which is very simple and matches are provided. The Barn is for a couple so there is not a huge fridge but it is normally adequate and it has a small freezer box as noted in the description. You forgot to mention in your review that we kindly let you use our personal freezer for all the UK milk you brought, nor the fact that we also invited you for aperitifs at our other property at which point you managed to insult your hosts. We strive very hard to make sure all our guests have an enjoyable holiday and we have had many satisfied guests, many of whom have returned time and time again to us. As previously stated had we been aware of the issues you found, we could have rectified them immediately.

“A great week in rural Northern France – we adored this barn conversion”
Reviewed October 12, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

My wife and I spent a week in October staying in this fantastic property. We had a wonderful time in this comfortable and easily maintained gite.

The property is situated in a very attractive area, with all the sights, sounds and smells expected in such a rural location. The directions were very clear and we had the warmest of welcomes on our arrival at the barn. The property is accurately described and it met our needs perfectly. We really liked the creativity and skill of the owners who had provided idyllic holiday accommodation whilst retaining many of the building’s original features. The living room is very comfortably furnished, with a settee and a leather chair. The kitchen provides every facility needed for a self-catering holiday, with full sized gas hob and oven, as well as a small fridge. There was plenty of crockery with enough pans for cooking. The bathroom was perfectly acceptable with a toilet, sink and shower cubicle. There was always ample hot water at a very reasonable pressure. The spacious bedroom had plenty of storage. We found the bed to be very comfortable which meant we sometimes got up rather late. The wi-fi worked well so we could keep up with family back in the UK. The benefit of having UK terrestrial channels on the TV meant that be assured that it was still raining back home.

Our preferred holiday making involves plenty of sightseeing, walking and dining. There is so much to see in this part of France – we especially enjoyed visiting the coastal resorts to the west. The peace and tranquillity were much appreciated – the quiet roads were a pleasure to drive, despite the mud left by all the tractors. I would like to thank the owners for helping to make our holiday such a memorable one. Their kindness and friendliness will stay with us as one of the most pleasurable features of our stay. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to future holiday makers. You will be assured of a carefree holiday.

“Fantastic Hosts”
Reviewed September 7, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We spent a week in the Barn. It was in a lovely location.
We had a good welcome from the owners.
They were helpful with lots of information.
Le Touquet is a wonderful beach which is not too far from the Holiday Barn.
Well worth a visit.

“Absolute Paradise”
Reviewed October 16, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This Gite is fantastic cosy, clean homely and welcoming. The owners Sarah and David were wonderful, helpful and friendly, we stayed for three nights, it was not long enough, we are certainly returning next year to sample some more of this French hospitality.

Thank you both once again it was like being a part of the family.

“Perfect”
Reviewed November 11, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

I am a very fussy when it comes to accommodation when we stay away and I absolutely loved this barn conversation. Set a in quiet typically French village but close to lots of attractions - we visited Montreuil and Agincourt in the weekend we were there. Sarah and David were so helpful in suggesting local antique markets and were the perfect hosts. The accommodation itself was clean and beautifully decorated.
