Bed & Breakfast

Two smart rooms, a prairie-style garden with grasses and wild flowers and seasonal suppers near Chantilly. Creative hosts who pamper you too


2 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


In the lush countryside outside of Chantilly – famed for its château, horse racing, lace and cream – lies a typical village house in unusual style. Clare’s creative energy swirls around in the bold cubes and stripes, trompe l’oeil tiles, designer chairs and leafy plants. Carlos crafted the solid wood kitchen table at which you breakfast on home baked goodies, fresh fruits and juices from the village bakery or dine on a light charcuterie platter and a glass of good wine. Cats snooze by the fireplace in a light-filled sitting room bright with paintings by artist friends. And you will sleep well in one of two exquisite bedrooms overlooking a beautiful garden.

Lovely modern room with good shower in historic building, close to Chantilly and the airport, fabulous hostess, quiet surroundings with relaxing garden. highly recommended

Grant, Auckland

Our family (including two boys 10 & 12) had the most lovely stay for 3 nights. Absolutely delicious home-made and healthy breakfasts and dinners in the beautiful garden with her family, and excellent advice on where/what to visit (for children and adults) was spot on. The house and rooms are stunning with a great deal of thought put into them and we would definitely return and recommend it. Clare was a fantastic host.

Emma, Lewes

As B & B owners ourselves we were very pleased with our choice of this Special Place to Stay. It ticks all the boxes: welcoming, comfortable, restful with the added bonus of Clare and her excellent food. We'll go again (if the EU will let us!)

John, Hereford

Clare Howarth's lovely home is conveniently located near Chantilly which a short drive from Charles De Gaul Airport. Clare has recently opened her B & B and her generous welcome and well appointed rooms would suggest that she will have much success in her new endeavor. We called only two days before our stay and she was happy to have us on such short notice. We arrived late in the day having not eaten lunch. She immediately set a table with cheese, bread, and fruit for us. As we ate she invited us to have dinner with her family. She is a generous, interesting, and kind host, none better.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Clare Howarth

  • Head to Chantilly and it's wonderful James Bond chateau and art collection second only to the Louvre, gardens by Le Nôtre and majestic 18th century stables, it is whispered that the 7th Duke of Condé believed he would be re-incarnated as a horse...
  • Drop by Senlis and wander the ancient streets, alleys and gardens within the medieval walls, step inside one of the most beautiful gothic cathedrals in France, test the great speciality food stalls and picnic by the ramparts!
  • We are just 40kms from the airports of both Charles de Gaulle and Beauvais and can provide an early bird breakfast for those "red eye" flights so stay and enjoy the region on arriving or leaving France
  • The great quality of the ground has made for a world class racecourse by the chateau and at least five golf courses, so charge those batteries with our healthy home made breakfast before heading onto the fairways
  • We're just ten minutes from the Abbey of Royaumont with it's splendid cistertian halls and wonderful gardens,with it's foundation for ancient and contemporary music and arts, there is always something to surprise you,a well kept secret ;)
  • We're only 25 minutes from Paris on the train, so go as the locals do and wander the city knowing you will arrive back to peace and nature at the end of a great day in the lively hubub of "the city of light"
