2 Bedroom Cottage in Normandy in a lovely, quiet and peaceful countryside location, close to a pretty village.

Set in approximately 2 acres of private land with fabulous views of the Normandy countryside, but just a 5 minute walk to the village, with its excellent bakery and bar/restaurant.

The Cottage is in the beautiful 17th century hamlet of La Mancellière situated in the picturesque Manche region of Lower Normandy, close to the Brittany and Loire borders.

The space
The property has been lovingly restored into a comfortable, self-contained gite with private gardens. The property can accommodate up to 4 people, over two levels, in two beautiful bedrooms, each full of character and charm. There is a large master bedroom with a king-size bed and a lovely twin room with two single beds. There is also a shower room on the first floor. All rooms are made up with comfortable, high quality cotton bedding and have central heating and alcove windows with fantastic views across the gardens to the farmland beyond. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated with local artisanal furniture, and we use light coloured cotton bedding.

The stone fireplace is the heart and soul of the Cottage and putting your feet up by the wood-burning fire is the perfect way to end a long day sightseeing. The kitchen and utility room is fully fitted and well-appointed with a range cooker, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The dining area has a table for 4 people and the cosy lounge area has big squashy sofas, perfect for relaxing by the fire after a days sightseeing.

The gite has lots of original features including chestnut floors and exposed oak beams throughout. La Mancellière is surrounded by rolling countryside and has lovely gardens for you to enjoy. There is a TV and DVD player and WiFi internet is available free of charge. Central heating is also available on request.

The large, secluded, child-friendly grounds are well away from any roads. From time to time there are also sheep and chickens (in fenced off areas). We also have BBQs and outdoor games to keep kids entertained such as boules, frisbees, bats and balls, footballs etc.

The property is available to rent all year round for self-catering holidays.
