Accommodation and Surroundings

Kestrel Cottage

Adjoining the main farmhouse at the former farm of Le Hamel Roger and offering complete privacy is Kestrel Cottage, aptly named because of the family of kestrels nesting next door during the spring and early summer.

We live in the farmhouse with our young family and enjoy welcoming guests from all over the world. One holidaymaker left a note in the guestbook saying that we are "helpful yet unobtrusive hosts" which is what we aim to be!


The cottage has a large spacious lounge with a log fire, comfortable seating, bed-settee, TV & DVD player. We are happy to lend our DVDs and basic satellite TV can be arranged on request. There is a selection of books and games.

Dining Area

The kitchen has a cooker, microwave, separate grill and a toaster. There is a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, freezer, kettle, iron and ironing board. A door leads from the kitchen to a shower room and w.c.

Constant hot water is provided.

For quieter moments there is bench seating at the top which affords wonderful views across the valley and creates a peaceful space for reflection and calm

Exclusively for the use of our guests we have seating immediately outside the cottage and a BBQ dining area a little further into the garden. This part of the garden offers some appreciated shade under the apple, plum and sycamore trees.

If indoor play is the order of the day you can use our newly renovated play loft. An area equipped with a small ball pit and ride-on toys for little ones or table tennis & table football for older children and adults.
