About this property

Mongolian Yurt on Quiet 15 Acre Farm. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

We have a small working farm in a protected national park, within 5 minutes of two small, charming French villages and 5 minutes from a Norman castle which now houses over 30 pairs of nesting storks. We offer 3 different types of accommodation so guests can opt for complete privacy or enjoy the company of your hosts and other guests.

Our luxurious and traditional Mongolian Yurt is set in a private field on the farm, with its own bathroom and campsite kitchen (although breakfast is included and delivered to the Yurt). The Yurt has a king size four poster bed and 2 convertible sofas (so it sleeps 4 people perhaps 6).

There is a minimum stay of 2 nights (£65 per night and £400 for a week).

All linen and bedding are included.

We are 20 minutes from the D-Day landing beaches, Bayeux and Le Molay-Littry with lots of local antique fairs in the area.

Owner's website
Year property purchased 2013
Why this location? Based in the heart of a protected national park with stunning views and amazing wildlife and we fell in love with the amazing Oak Trees on the farm. Close enough to the D Day beaches, towns and nightlife to enable guests to benefit from the tourist attractions but still enjoy a peaceful stay.
Lots of activities for children, families, couples, walkers, cyclists and bikers.

Metal detectorists always welcome but you may find that the WW2 artiiacts have already been found (so far mortar round bits, bullets (fired and whole), machete, MG42 barrel as well as buckles and other equipment).
Unique benefits of property We offer different types of holiday accommodation for our guests (cottags, B&B, a Yurt and camping).
Everyone is welcome and we have experienced guides, cyclists and walkers living on the farm.

- A 4 bedroom Cottage on the farm
- An authentic Mongolian Yurt set in a private field - Glamping
- A 1 bedroom Cottage on the farm
- Camping (small purpose built campsite)
- Caravan (4 electric / water hookups available)

Undercover parking is available (please let us know beforehand) and loads of parking on site.

The Owner Recommends

D Day Landing Beaches

Utah, Gold, Juno, Sword and Omaha beaches (nearest 20 minutes, furthest 45 minutes by car)
Experienced tour guide available on request and he can show you those sites not commonly visited yet full of history and with a unique tale to be told.

Bayeux tapestry

20 minutes drive from the farm

Mont St Michel

UNESCO world heritage site (1 hour drive)

Monet's Gardens at Giverny

Monet’s house and gardens in Giverny are well worth a visit. You can see the water lilies that inspired the painter and stroll through the absolutely stunning gardens that were Monet’s muse for so many of his well-known prices of art work

Christmas Market 14 Dec 2016

One particular Christmas Market in Saint-Lo has Santa Claus visiting to distribute sweets to all the children who visit. Fabulous market - definitely worth a visit!


Fabulous Frnch Zoos to visit with plenty of room for animals to roam. Lions can be heard from anywhere in the zoo, loads of penguins and children (and adults) can visit the animal petting zoo...

Festyland Amusement Park

Lots of rides (from gentle to thrill), a full day's entertainment for the whole family. Brilliant outing
