This cottage (Les Cerisiers) was a great find in a part of France where it was not easy to book a suitable cottage. We (a family of five, children aged 13, 10 and 7) spent three hectic days at Disneyland before spending a week at Les Cerisiers and it was great to relax in the peaceful surroundings with the friendly animals across the back garden fence (which appealed greatly to the younger children). The cottage has been maintained to a high standard and is fully equipped, (and properly cleaned before arrival) and the fans provided by the owners were helpful as the weather was very hot during our visit! Nearby is a very good swimming pool and we recommend the easy journey to Paris from Amiens railway station. The owners, Sue and Geoff, were very attentive and helpful. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage.

The description of the property was spot on. My husband and I loved the cottage both inside and out and appreciated all the work and thoughtfulness that Jeff and Sue have put into it. It's equipped with everything you could possibly need including a washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher.

It was just right for a relaxing week of days out (one of the highlights being a trip to Monet's house and garden in Giverny - well worth the drive) and evenings eating meals in the garden with a glass of wine.

Altogether a very enjoyable holiday.

The cottage is very welcoming and is in a great location for visiting both the Somme sites and also Paris. The cottage has everything you need and the best bit is the beds are very comfortable. The village is quite and a bread lady comes in the morning with fresh bread.

The house is lovely; well renovated, maintained and clean and it contained everything we needed for a week away. If you are looking for a quiet holiday in a small village in a rural corner of Normandy then this is the place for you. There are picturesque towns and small villages within a short drive, many with markets on different days, and the coast and bigger cities (Amiens and Rouen) are well within reach on a day trip. It is about an hour and a half from Calais so easily doable with small children.
