The Owner Recommends

Bricquebec Market; Best in Region!

A lovely Monday morning market which is enormous in the summer and previous guests have assured us, it is certainly the best in the whole area. Local cheeses, wines, meats and organic vegetables as well as a couple of delicious saucisse and frites stalls! Livestock early on. Sit in one of the several coffee bars which surround the main square and watch the world go by.

D-Day Landing Beaches:

We are close to the D-day landing beaches: if you are visiting Normandy, these are well worth a visit.

We had a glorious time at Barn Owl. The accommodation was beautiful and modern, but within an older, atmospheric setting. Every convenience had been considered and our hosts were welcoming and helpful at all times. For children the setting was particularly wonderful as the large (safe!) grounds, numerous outdoor toys and glamorous 'playhouse' (more like a 'play chateau') were superb for playing in. Thanks for having us!
