Enter this property over the draw bridge and you enter a calm, pretty and sophisticated oasis… Isabelle our charming hostess..took time to show us our room and it’s features… coffee machine microwave kettle. The room was on the small side but it ticked all the boxes… food/ super from the small shop was average but the grounds were perfect for the dogs … tho chickens on the prowl! Breakfast in the conservatory with 180 views of the garden … perfect
Bed and Breakfast of quality without table d'hote

This is a beautiful place with fabulous buildings in a quiet area. There is a building in the garden for special events such as weddings or parties which might disturb the peace if one was unfortunate enough to stay when such a "do" was occurring. My night in a chalet themed ground floor room off a fountain and statue filled courtyard was utterly peaceful, in a good bed and glad of it after a long drive up through France. The shower was one of those where if one wants to get all the jets in the right places one needs a degree but to get the basics it was simple to operate and the water was hot. Plenty of towels, even a hairdryer. I loved the little animal statues all over the place; the two inquisitive fowl in the bathroom, the owl or the mouse in the two window recesses, etc. Madame was attentive to my dietary needs and laid out a quality continental breakfast to suit. One ate it in the conservatory facing the garden where ducks and Moorhen "laughed" or dashed about in the tree branches. One crosses a river as if a moat and passes through a doorway which could have housed a portcullis and guards to park securely inside. The buildings were rebuilt on 12th Century remains in the 16th Century and are lovingly maintained. I had to eat and rather than drive double figure kms I opted to eat in a local take away doing Ch'ti specialities, burgers etc with chips. It was different but the lack of table d'hote is its Achilles heal.

The shower facility was simply a bath with a shower head attachment with no curtains so you had to kneel in the bath to take a shower. The attic barn we stayed in was mainly of timber construction, there was no fire or smoke alarm fitted which in the UK would certainly have been illegal. It would be a tinderbox if it caught fire. There was one water fire extinguisher which would have been inadequate. There was a gas powered woodburning type stove which by the proprietors own admission was defective and could not be used during the night because of the loud noises it made; there was no CO alarm fitted to the property - worrying! On the night we stayed, the proprietor had allowed some sort of show (a clown with an amplifier and a dozen or so in the audience rotating every half hour) to take place directly outside where we were trying to sleep, it continued for 4 hours until 11pm. When I first phoned the proprietor around 9pm to ask when it would finish as we had an early start the next day, she said there was one more show, when I phoned again at 1030 she said "This is a B&B, if you want to sleep, stay at a hotel"! The proprietor refused any form or refund and clearly felt that disturbing guests for her convenience was perfectly acceptable. From a safety perspective alone I would avoid this place, but for the arrogant disregard to our ability to sleep, I would avoid at all costs.
Absolutely nothing to fault, dog friendly, and so conveniently close to Calais

with a charming host, comfortable room, home-cooked evening meal, very nice breakfast, modest bill and so much nicer and better value than most places in Northern France. Circumstances made it impossible for us to stay on our return journey but one we would certainly stay at again in the future
Stay near Calais.

Had a very comfortable stay at this lovely B&B. We needed somewhere not too far into France and this was ideal. Room was very comfortable and a lovely home made breakfast. Secure parking was important to us as we had a car full. Hosts very hospitable. Thank you.
