La Fermette

Farmhouse -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Mortain, Manche, Basse-Normandie, Normandy
La Fermette stands in the farmland called L'Aide Frechu (formerly known as L'Etre Frechu). Also at L'Aide Frechu is the original bakery (La Boulangerie) and a large granite barn (La Grange). These buildings will be converted for lettings at a future date.

A natural spring rises on the land with an original water pump and brook which runs down to a large pond. The pond is surrounded by trees and attracts wildlife - ducks, coypu and frogs.

The house is reached by a short private track which joins the main road connecting Mortain and Domfront.

The recent restoration has created quality accommodation whilst retaining original features of the farmhouse. It is privately owned. The accommodation sleeps six and comprises:

Ground floor:
Entrance hall with small cloakroom and stairway to first floor.
