We chose this as an overnight stop before taking the ferry, and it was excellent. The house and garden (and lake) are charming, but above all we felt really welcome. Isabelle and her husband are charming. We really appreciated things like wifi that actually worked, a tray to make tea and coffee in the room, and comfortable bed. And the...

Isabelle hurries to greet you with the broadest of smiles, and takes you into her cottage to dispense coffee or real English tea in a pot! Her two spare rooms are smallish, homely and attractively furnished, but the power showers are fabulous, and she provides adequate, thirsty towels. Breakfast is a feast which includes her home made jams. We will...

We spent a night here on a short shopping trip from the UK. We were very warmly welcomed by our hostess, and found ourselves occupying a very pleasant room. The restaurants in Ardres were just a short walk away Our breakfast was typically French, and included jams made from their garden produce! We intend to stay there again.

Isabelle's Husband did not speak much English but made us feel very welcome, showing us the room before we accepted it. The room was very clean and tidy,the bathroom had a great shower.

Even if we stayed there only one night on the road to England we enjoyed the calmness and perfect cleanliness of our bedroom. The bed was a bit short, and the door didn't lock, but the bathroom was immaculate and we had a great sleep. The house has a beautiful garden. The breakfast was delicious, with home-made jams and fresh...

“We preferred the second room. She has a friendly hyusband and teenage son, and a well-behaved but welcoming dog called Watson. You have to look hard for the green signboard partly hidden by trees - but the property stands well back from the main road”
