“We had to travel to Normandy three times to find a paradise with two very special angels! After a very, very stressful time for us, also because of Covid, we were allowed to spend 2 weeks in the Walnut Cottage.The house and the lovely landlords Julie & Nigel exceeded all expectations!!!!!!! Thank you for everything, we did not want to go home anymore!!!!!!!!!! We would love to come back!!!!!! Respect for all the work you do every day!!!!!”

“We had a lovely stay at La Barbotiere, Julie and Nigel are fantastic hosts and the cottage is a joy to stay in, it has everything you need and is comfortable. The lit log burner was perfect on arrival and then after a day out to Mont Saint Michel (a must see) on a wet day with gale force winds getting back to a warm cottage was heaven! Breakfast also a must! Overall a great location for sightseeing or stop over point for travelling, we would not hesitate to book again.”
