The Farmhouse is in the centre of the village of Delettes, about 45 minutes south of Calais and 15 minutes south of St Omer. The village and The Farmhouse nestle in the valley of the river Lys, surrounded by the rolling historic countryside (definitely not flat!) of southern Pas de Calais, near the market and cathedral town of St Omer. The region is steeped in history – English as well as French – and The Farmhouse is well placed for visiting everywhere from the sandy beaches on the coast to the Western Front.

The Farmhouse is a "home from home", well equipped with a gre...

We stayed at the Farmhouse for 4 months following a career move to France. This beautiful country house provided the perfect introduction to living in France. Lots of space for our visiting friends and family and the house is extremely well equipped - everything you could need is there, even a friendly and helpful house-keeper. We felt at home as...

Weather was great only one day rainy. Lovely, clean and very spacious house, we loved sitting in the lounge in the evenings listening to all the different music. Eating...

About the neighborhood
Everyone comments on how peaceful and relaxing the house and surrounding courtyard (which is totally private), and the garden can be, but if you are feeling energetic there is no shortage of things to in and around the house and garden or in the surrounding area, whatever the time of year. Some people rarely venture out of the Farmhouse, preferring to stay put and chill in the house, courtyard, garden and heated pool. Nevertheless, if you want a change from its delights there is an extensive range of guidebooks for the region in the games room and a “House Book” (which is actually a lever arch file) bulging with ideas for things to do and places to visit.
Delettes village has a village tennis court (open in the summer only) and petanque court opposite the house by the river. The loc...

How to get there
Airport: Lille: 21.7 mi
Railway: St Omer: 9.3 mi
Ferry: Calais or Le Shuttle terminal: 31.1 mi
The Channel Tunnel “Le Shuttle” operates from the Cheriton terminal at Folkestone on the M20 about an hour from the M25 junction. There are usually frequent trains every hour throughout the day up to about 11 pm, depending on the time of year. Journey time on Le Shuttle is 35 minutes.

The Farmhouse is about 45 minutes from the French terminal at Sangatte in Pas de Calais or the ferry terminal. Most of the ferry companies operate from Dover to Calais and can be accessed from the end of the M20 – about 15 minutes beyond Le Shuttle terminal.
All the crossings often have special fares for short break/excursions. Journey times from London or when you are the Kent side of London can vary according to the time of day but as a guide, using the Channel Tunnel, we reckon it takes around 3.5 ho...
