1 of 36Le Hamel Roger, the main farmhouse and Kestrel Cottage.
Cottage -
4 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Vire-Normandie, Calvados, Basse-Normandie, Normandy
Kestrel Cottage is next door to the main house at the former farm of Le Hamel Roger. Part of the cider barn attached to the house has been renovated to create this spacious and welcoming cottage. With many original features and all modern amenities it's a wonderful place for groups of between 2 and 10 people. It's great for families and we offer lots of extras for young children at no extra cost.

Outside the cottage you will discover an acre of garden including quiet places to relax, shady trees (also good for climbing!) seating areas, a BBQ, dining tables and a hill with views across the valley. There are plenty of toys, bats, balls, a big trampoline with safety net, climbing frame, swing set, tyre swing, sand pit and a goal. There is a fully fenced above ground 4.5m swimming pool which is solar heated from June to September. We...

Our kids cried when we left this beautiful place we called home for two blissful weeks. Quiet and beautifully rustic, Kestrel Cottage did not disappoint. Angela, Danny and their family were brilliant hosts and couldn't do enough for us, I doubt we will ever find...More

About the neighborhood
Right on the doorstep of Kestrel cottage is walking country. There are many route marked walks in the locality suitable for the experienced and novice walker. Maps and details are available in the cottage. The countryside abounds with all manner of flora, fauna, birds and butterflies.

There is a wide variety of activities and attractions available within an easy drive of the cottage. You will find the viaduct de ls souleuvre with activities for thrill seekers and a cafe for the watchers! We love the Lac de la Dathée with kayaks to hire, an artificial beach, a 6km path around it, fishing and a big dam. The zoo de Jurques is just up the road . You can go horse riding in the local village. There are family theme parks and adventure parks. There are several swimming pools around us with slide...

The nearest port is Ouistreham in Caen. It's a 45 minute toll free drive from the port to the cottage. Brittany Ferries operate the route from Portsmouth, also Poole to Cherbourg which is 90 toll free minutes from here. Le Harve is 90 minutes north of the cottage and served by LD Lines who often have cheaper fares. The boats are smaller and there are some tolls (approx 7 euros each way). Going north you get Dieppe & Bologne before you get to Calais with ferries and the Eurotunnel. We are around 4 hours drive from Calais, it will cost around 20 euros in tolls each way. The autoroutes are normally free flowing but sometimes in August there can be queues at the toll booths. The nearest airports are Rennes and Dinard, we are about 2 hours from each.
