About this property

Heated Pool, Games Room, Hot Tub, Covered BBQ Area. This cottage/gite is in a village setting.

Large traditional beamed farmhouse ideal for families and small groups of friends. There is something for everyone here. Hot tub, heated pool, gamesroom, log fires, comfortable beds, well maintained mature gardens, indoor/outdoor bbq areas. Imagine you've planned a bbq and the weather has other ideas, well you can bbq outside in a covered area.

The stone built house is situated down a private country lane surrounded by private gardens, fields and meadow land. The house is a large, comfortable traditional old farmhouse built with local stone. It has beamed ceilings with lots of character and age but the convenience of modern living. Well equipped kitchen with farmhouse table. A separate dining table in the dining living room. Central heating and log fire.

The gamesroom has log fire, football table, pool table, tv dvd player, cd player, karaoke machine, chesterfield, bar, bar stools, chairs and a fridge for cooling drinks, not provided, sorry.

The house is surrounded by its own private mature gardens.There is a play area with swings.

2 mins from carp fishing, golf courses 15 mins away.


If you have ever thought of escaping Christmas, this area is not for you! The local villages spend time and money ensuring that you are more than aware that Christmas is approaching. Absolutely magical is the best way to describe a Christmas in France.

We have a degree of decorating at the house, a tree with baubles and a few Christmas decs. Or completely mad and over the top. Sit around the log fire and enjoy a mulled wine. The decorations are outside the house as well as in. When you book we need you to tell us which you prefer.

Thinking of New Year?

Domfront has what you want, come and join us while we watch the fireworks with the castle as the backdrop and the fireworks set to music. Again with the mulled wine.

We spent 3 brilliant wks here at this lovely property. The house catered for all weather as it's so well equipped. The hot tub and games room got plenty of use on our first wk as weather wasn't great but didn't in anyway take from our holiday. We still had loads to do in the house, pool table, karaoke machine, numerous dvds, the amazing hot tub. The house is in a lovely area n we enjoyed our many trips into the lovely old town of Domfront which had lovely restaurants, shops.
The outdoor areas of the house are gorgeous ,large pool got plenty of use and barbecue areas, the gardens are fab.
Dawne and Bob are such a lovely warm welcoming couple and go out of their way to help u anyway they can. Our son Eoin really enjoyed his fishing trip with them 😁. And we had a lovely evening sitting out front with them both enjoying the sparkling champagne 🥰
We will definitely be back in the very near future and with the addition of the new double room they're renovating will definitely be great addition to the comfort of the property.
Thank you Dawne and Bob for our wonderful holiday at your lovely property 😘

Beautiful house, lovely location. The house is equipped with everything you need and more. Added bonus of chicken and ducks wandering in the garden Thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks spent here and were sad to leave. Our hosts were great and even gave us a bottle of champagne to celebrate our anniversary. Will definitely revisit
