You’ll feel at home in this farmhouse retreat whatever the weather. The cosy living room is perfect for rainy days; settle in with the bottle of wine waiting for you and relax in front of the wood burner, ready to be lit on chillier evenings.
Easy-going Sharon and Shaun have their own place in the grounds and may be around to greet you. There are plenty of walking and cycling trails from the door – borrow a bike or choose from four circular walks that lead to lovely open countryside. Come home to cook in the well-equipped kitchen or fire up the barbecue and eat out on the quiet and sunny terrace.
Fillièvres has a bakery and a couple of cafés, or drive to Hesdin (12km) for larger shops and restaurants. There are beautiful towns within an hour’s drive: the hilltop gem of Montreuil-sur-Mer, Amiens with its Gothic cathedral and the medieval town and seaside resort of Saint-Valery-sur-Somme. Reach historic battlefields in Agincourt and Crécy in half an hour and some family-friendly beaches in around 45 minutes.
