Our prices are based per person per night and we provide a unique fully residential accommodation experience for guests which includes accommodation, breakfasts and evening meals and drinks at the Manor and includes a one or two day guided tour of the D Day beaches and landing grounds.

This was not a surface tour. It was deeply local. It was global as well. By this, Ben started 50 yards from his house with the story of one paratrooper...
