We are bordered by open fields, frequently occupied by horses from the local stud or cows from the farm. Mostly, the only sound you will hear is bird song but sometimes the local cockerel and chickens remind you that we are in countryside!

Private parking for 3+ cars
Unfortunately, at the moment not suitable for very young children or disabled guests.
Chris and I (Celia) have been running hotels and restaurants in the UK for over 40 years. We decided that we would love to continue this way of life and fell in love with this region of France over 15 years ago when we found Le Pommier de Houesville. We have lovingly converted the barns attached to our home whilst retaining the integrity of 18th Century barns. We have a goat's cheese farm just a 5 minute walk away and buy our eggs from just over the hedge - perfect as far as we are concerned!

|Unique benefits of property||Set in extensive lawned gardens the 18th Century stone barns offer 21st century living whilst retaining their original integrity. Indeed, the barns are still giving up their secrets of occupied France when we find yet another artifact from WW2 hidden in a nook and cranny.
The gite has been designed with an open plan kitchen and dining area so has a light, airy and sociable feel and opens straight out onto the terrace so you can enjoy a glass of wine and bbq.
Rented all year and fully heated with a log burner for those Autumn or winter evenings, so is ideal for a romantic week or short break away.
Every thought has been given to the needs of our guests and C and C Gites provide hotel standards but with the freedom of self catering.
Our nearest museum and very popular with WW2 historians
within 15 minutes drive, this wonderful museum re-tells the experiences of 1944 and is situated on Utah beach. This is in itself a beautiful beach with miles upon miles of golden sand.
Only 30-40 minutes away this medi-evil town, famous for The Bayeux Tapestry is abound with ancient timbered buildings and wonderful cathedral.
Both pretty fishing villages with a good selection of shops and restaurants.
A world class grocer, wine merchant and gift shop can be found in St Vaast la Hougue in the form of Maison Gosselin. Has to be seen to be believed!
Restaurant in Sainte Mere Eglise specialising in fresh local cuisine. Well worth a visit.
Situated in Grandcamp-Maissy this wonderful restaurant specialises in local seafood and gets it's fish straight of the fishing boats a stone's throw away.
