My husband and I spent 3 nights at La Cloue and received a warm welcome and delicious evening meal upon arrival, Cheryl cheerfully catering for my gluten free needs. (Pork steaks with apple topping, though that's not the proper recipe name!) The vegetables and soft fruit are all from the organic vegetable garden. All the family (Cheryl, husband Tony and grown up son Ryan)ate with us and the two other guests, creating a happy house-party atmosphere which we greatly enjoyed. Cheryl really enjoys people so made us feel relaxed straight away. We occupied two double rooms (snoring sadly separating us), and both were comfortable, the beds being lovely and springy, (also the pillows,) freshly decorated in co-ordniating colours, with hair dryer and ensuite bathroom. My Lilac room had a shower, but hubby's had a bath with shower plus a bidet. I loved the blue fabrics and found the bedside light easy to reach in the dark (not my experience this holiday at subsequent B and B's!). Though I did walk into the roof joist you can see in the picture on the web site several times.The drinks chest had a pod coffee machine with a large choice of coffee or hot chocolate, plus herbal and fruit tea bags and even Earl Grey (If I remember rightly!) . This is so nice when you're on holiday, to be able to make a drink at any time. There was no problem making my special diet porage every morning accompanied by lovely fresh fruit salad made by Cheryl. The smallholding is green and rural and so quiet and refreshing:yoiu can really get back to nature here with the hens and prize turkeys and greylag geese. Bird watching is our hobby ad we were thrilled to find and photograph a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker!Cheryl rang a friend to ask about birds for us and we were invited to visit his ancient home where there were two green sandpipers on his pool!! Merveilleux! Also the bats were fun as they swooped around us one evening at dusk.Cheryl will help you plan your day and take a real interest in what you got up to later. We hope to return one day.
