This is a stunning 15th century manor house, providing the perfect escape for a group of up to 13 guests. Set in acres of private grounds, it's an idyllic space for children to enjoy, topped off with a fresh spring water lake which is wonderful to swim in. For families with children, a selection of indoor and outdoor games are provided for your enjoyment.
The manor house has been carefully and lovingly restored by its owners and is set in over 60 acres of woodland and fields for you to enjoy. The property is steeped in history. The oldest part of the manoir dates from 1450 but it was extended in 1650 and was an integral part of the farming community in the area until the Second World War when it fell into ruin. The new owners fell in love with it at first sight and spent years painstakingly restoring the building and putting in the necessary creature comforts!nnInside the property boasts a spacious kitchen, equipped with aga. There is also a dining room with large table seating up to 12 guests as well as a 40 foot long living area with original inglenook fireplace. There is SKY TV as well as WIFI for those who like to ensure they remain connected during their holiday.
Up a flight of stairs, there are 3 double bedrooms as well as a room with 3 single beds, ideal for children. The double bedrooms all enjoy ensuite bathrooms whilst the children in the triple bedroom have a bathroom at the other end of the hallway. A second flight of stairs leads to the attic where there are two further bedrooms which share a wet room style bathroom. There is a large area in between these rooms which can be used as a play area for children.
Outside, there are a number of outbuildings, all providing perfect snapshots of French rural history. One of the barns still houses the original apple press used for the production of local cidre and calvados.
There are plenty of small calvados producers within a short drive of the manoir providing tastings. For those with an interest in food and drink, it's also worth visiting the cheese factories at nearby Camembert and Livarot too.
The property is easy to reach, just a 3 hour drive from Calais, and so can even be a great option for those looking for a long weekend. It's also only 40 minutes from the beautiful town of Honfleur and an hour from the sandy beaches of Cabourg, Villers sur Mer and Deauville. For those with a passion for horses, the French national stud of Haras du Pin is only 20 minutes away, whilst for those with more of a historical interest, the museum and memorial at Mont-Ormel is also nearby. This overlooks the valley where the Battle of Normandy took place in 1944.
