Sweet little farmhouse with lovingly collected artefacts, heavenly mattresses and views over fields and forest. Annie prepares superb food


2 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Annie used to have her own restaurant in Devon so whether you are outside on her little stone terrace overlooking open fields and forest or inside at her long antique table, it will be a Cordon Bleu breakfast. Multi-talented Annie could open an antique shop: her lovingly collected artefacts decorate this sweet little farmhouse like a dream from the past. The paint work is gorgeous,the vintage linens are sumptuous, the towels are thirsty, the mattresses are from heaven. You can walk to town, pick a trail in the forest or rent a canoe and follow the lazy river Lay. Annie’s dinners are renowned, even the Mayor comes to dine.

We Stayed with Annie for four nights and she was the perfect host. The suite was beautiful and had everything we needed. Annie is a wonderful chef and prepared 5 course meals, whenever we got hungry. We will definitely visit again and hope that it'll not be too long to taste her wonderful apple and strawberry pie baked with her secret recipe. Annie is a sweet heart!!


We stayed two nights with Annie on our way to the Dordogne. The Vendee is a lovely part of France and La Landerie is a superbe place to stay. The accommodation was first class. Annie served delicious food and I am not suprised that the locals go there for meals. Annie was hospitable, charming and good fund. We have stayed in many of Sawday's B&Bs. This was one of the best. We intend to return.


A quite unique and delightful place to stay. Annie is a wonderful patronne- she does everything herself with charm. friendly elegance and a personal style. She is also a magnificent chef so dont even think about eating anywhere else! You will not be disappointed and will always have fond memories of your stay.


Annie farmhouse was an absolute delight, her house is full of interesting bricabrac and beautiful bedrooms! We booked dinner for the evening and were very pleasantly surprised at the fabulous gourmet meal which was even better than the Michelin Star meal we had had the previous week! This BandB is worth doing a detour for we'd thoroughly recommend it! The Crawfords, Surrey

Annie has a beautiful house and we felt very at home and relaxed with her. We enjoyed the different company and conversations over dinner and especially we enjoyed the excellent meals she cooked for us. Tea was provided on arrival in the shadier parts of the beautiful garden, plus pre-dinner wine and olives, then a wonderful meal with wine included. Annie even managed to provide us with our own personal bird-watching spectacular of kestrels feeding their young in the barn next door. An amazing meal,stylish and comfortable home with a welcoming atmosphere. We will return!

We paid our second visit to La Maison de Landerie and found the same welcome as before from our very friendly hostess. Annie's house is exquisitely decorated and furnished, the bedrooms and facilities extremely comfortable and Annie's dinner to die for! She provides dishes that her guests will appreciate and the settings both in the dining room or on the terrace are perfect,,,with wonderful views over open countryside. We were looking for a relaxing break from the busy life we are leading at the moment and were not disappointed. We highly recommend a stay here. Pretty special!

My third visit.....a superb stop over... or as a base for leisurely exploring the area...greeted by a glass of good red with nibbles by your charming host is just what's reguired after a long day....and later a beautiful dinner before retiring to very comfortable bed ....and all but a few minutes from the Autoroute ....

What a find. A wonderfully warm welcome after a long day travelling. The evening meal, cooked by Annie, was delicious. Our room was comfortable and relaxing and very well equipped. Breakfast was equally as good. We would definitely recommend and hope to visit again soon.

Annie is a gem. Her bedrooms are so comfortable and our four day stay there was wonderful. Annie is a superb chef and each evening we were treated to an exquisite four course meal. We shall return.


A perfect little oasis to rest after a long day in the car heading to the south of France. Annie was most charming in her welcome and provided a delicious home-cooked, traditional French meal with generous quantities of wine. The room was comfortable, extremely spacious and elegantly decorated. Exceptional value for such a lovely place to stay.


Superb in every way... fabulous welcome, tea/coffee with home made biscuits,excellent room, luxury bedding, good facilities. Wonderful hostess, Annie, prepares gourmet food with wine in the peace and tranquility of what was once a dairy farm and all within a few minutes of the Autoroute... I do hope I can manage to visit again, stay longer and explore the charming area.

Everything was perfect - the meal was exceptional - Annie was very friendly - we would definitely stay again.

Yvonne, Fowlmere

We were bowled over by Annie's warm welcome. We enjoyed a delicious meal in her beautiful dining room. The fig and mozzarella starter was a particular highlight, and it was all exceptionally good value.

Kate, Sherborne

This is our third visit. Wonderfully warm welcome - beautiful house - superb meals - lovely area to explore. We shall return!


Annie is a charming lady and a wonderful host. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with her, and hope to visit her again soon. We would recommend staying for her delicious dinners too! First class cordon bleu cuisine without a doubt.


A warm welcome, very comfortable and lovely food.Situated in a very peaceful location a good stop off point if going further south.


We were Annie's first Sawday guests, a few years ago...we just have to keep going back. The whole place has a tranquillity about it and the food is just superb. we will be back there again next year that's for sure.


This was our 5th visit and will not be our last. Annie makes you welcome as soon as you arrive and her food is top restaurant class. this trip we stayed for 5 nights and wish we had more time.
