“Exactly what we hoped it would be... Peaceful, private and enjoyable.”
Reviewed May 25, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A friend and I stayed for one night in Lynne and Keith's gite while on a cycle tour of Normandy.

The gite was basic but exactly as described and exactly as wished for. We arrived to a very pleasant welcome and a cup of tea. Then, after a short tour of the accommodation, we were left to relax, refresh and enjoy the idyllic surroundings. A very quiet and peaceful location.

The gite facilities were great; good shower and nice bathroom to refresh in. The kitchen area was well equipped and would have been fine to cook a full meal in but we only used the kettle. We opted to enjoy Lynne and Keith's company with an evening meal cooked by them in the farmhouse. It was a superb meal that was wholly satisfying after a day in the saddle.

After a good rest we had breakfast in the farmhouse, we were offered it in the gite if we wanted which was a nice choice to have. Breakfast was basic, but again as expected and there was plenty of food to prepare us for the day ahead.

We cycled down to Lonlay the next day on our planned route but did not spend much time there at all. It did look very pretty from what we saw.

Overall we felt very welcome and enjoyed our stay with Lynne and Keith at their gite. I would like to stay again, but for longer, using the gite as a base for day trips and then returning in the evening to enjoy a bbq (on the private patio) and a beer in the sun.

Thank you so much for this lovely review. We enjoyed your company too and Monty looked for Bossa for days. I made potato salad for some friends and they loved it but it didn't taste as good as yours!
