About the Owner/Advertiser, Miss Pauline Blackburn

We visited Normandy in September 2005 just to view a few properties or so we thought. We viewed one property then arrived at this one to which we fell totally in love with. It was like going back in time to our youth. In early 2006 we moved here from Yorkshire with our family pets 2 ponies and a dog. The area is so peaceful, rural yet not too far to amenitities.

Year property purchased 2006
Why this location? It made us feel young again. We just fell in love with the location it took us back to happy times, both of us has children came from a farming background riding and driving ponies, keeping pigs collecting fresh eggs, fresh vegetables not forgetting fresh milk from the farm.
Unique benefits of property Set in a fabulous location on a quiet country lane Perfect to relax and enjoy the peace.

Myself & my girlfriend stayed for a couple of nights whilst on a road trip on my motorbike. We were able to park in the barn which was great. From the moment we arrived which was fairly late after the sat nav didn’t like us we were welcomed to the very cosy apartment with a cup of tea & some local calvados type drink which was lovely. The welcome pack of bread, cheese, butter, biscuits & wine went down very well as it was late as was my special request for a cider - ha! (Thank you!)
The apartment had everything you needed for a comfortable stay with plenty of space & the bed was very comfortable. We had fresh eggs in the morning from there own chickens which were delicious. We made use of the bbq on the second night & enjoyed the company of the host’s very much.
The grounds were amazing to walk around & very peaceful & relaxing & full of wildlife & animals. These animals included - cat, dog, chickens, horse, goat, ducks, quails, fish & the local wildlife!
It was lovely meeting & Pauline & Phil & hearing lots of stories. I would love to visit again one day.
Thank you

We arrived at le Grenier and received a warm welcome from Pauline & Phil & a welcone cup of tea.we were showed around the gite and showed how to work cooker shower tv etc..Pauline had left a nice welcome pack..of milk bread butter free range eggs, tea & coffee crosants wine biscuits orange juice , we thought this was a nice touch.
We found the gite to be very clean, very comfortable sleep very well.we cooked our meals here and the kitchen area had all we needed . The bathroom and shower is very good plenty of hot water clean and spacious with good towels.TV has sky with Englush channels.
Outside we could sit outside at the table and chairs provided there is a bbq also.We stayed for 2 weeks and had use of the wachine.
The setting for the gite is in peaceful countryside just 5 min drive into Ger village where you can buy supplies.There is a large supper market in Mortain about 10 - 15 mins away.
The hosts Pauline & Phil were very helpful and gave us some tips on where to visit in the area.
The gite is a very good base to tour the region
We will recommend Le Grenier to friends & family , we found Le Grenier to be great value for money, clean , and well maintained, with loverly hosts. The best review we can give is to say that we will be coming back next year to Le Grenier.Thank you Pauline & Phil for an enjoyable stay .

We have stayed in over 20 gites and this would be in my top 3.
Well laid out and well thought out gite with a few quirky French furnishings. English TV channels and good WiFi .The owners definitely go the extra mile with lots of welcoming touches and a very generous welcome pack.
Highly recommended
Will definitely stay here again

A joy to find that everything was as advertised. Warm welcome after a long journey so appreciated. Owners on hand to help us make the best of our visit. Comfortable, clean – comfy bed and huge bathroom – home from home. Pretty, rural location – lovely part of Normandy. Trips out to street markets, eating out and the coast. Recommend to anyone and will return.
