Lynn and Duncan’s three-storey mill house is surrounded by farmland and apple orchards, and although you’re near the A28 and A29 there’s no hint of traffic noise. Visit in autumn and join in with the cider harvest, when all the neighbours come together to help.
Guests gather together for breakfast around a long table in the relaxed living room or in the conservatory next door. Don’t miss Lynn’s four-course dinners, served in the lovely outdoor dining barn in summer – veg from the garden, Neufchâtel cheese, puddings with fruit from the garden and perhaps some of Duncan’s home-distilled Calvados to finish.
The pretty garden has three bridges crossing a stream and a little waterfall, and the indoor pool is great for a swim year-round. The nearest village is a couple of fields away, there are lovely châteaux to visit, and the Normandy coast is less than an hour’s drive away.
