Just an excellent place to stay in every sense, with a very helpful host.

Owner response

Thankyou Paul for your very complimentary review.
My husband & I try hard each year to improve our standards.
So glad you had a good week at Pont Rose with especially favourable weather, apart from the last day (Saturday), where I was glad to be able to offer an extended rental period for a few hours before you had to catch the ferry from Cherbourg.
Best regards,
Caroline Ormrod-Browne.

A very comfortable and well-equipped cottage. Cosy but just the right size for 3 of us. Lovely garden. Close to local shops, including 3 boulangeries for breakfast! Huge beach nearby. Owners were very helpful and communication was clear.

This little gem of a hideaway is perfect for enjoying and exploring this region of France. Once inside the garden of Pont Rose you feel quite secluded but are actually in a small town close to the beaches, a Carrefour supermarket, great restaurants and of course your local boulangerie - try their delicious Parisse baguette! The Le Clos Rubier restaurant, about 5 mins drive away, is definately a place not to be missed.

The property has a well equipped kitchen, including dishwasher and great outdoor seating and eating areas. The garden area is quite safe for young children as the property has secure access.

It was plenty big enough for just us as a couple and would be okay for a family with smaller kids. Two couples or a family with teenagers would have to be very comfortable with one another as the twin bedroom and the double room are linked. Also really tall people will struggle with the steep angle of the roof in the bedrooms.

The owners are contactable by phone to sort out any problems.

We would definately use Pont Rose again and recommend it to our family and friends.

Pont Rose is a cute little cottage with a lovely private garden including a delightful gazebo area and garden furniture. The double bed has a wonderfully firm mattress. The wi-fi is good. Only a short drive (or longer walk) to the lovely sandy beach at Barneville, with equally lovely sandy beaches at Carteret not much farther away, and easy parking. All in all, a wonderful break.

Owner response

Thankyou John for your kind comments & reviews. It was a pleasure to meet you
both.
Best wishes,
Caroline
