La Buissonniere was originally an old Normandie farmhouse and cow milking parlour but since moving here we have renovated the derelict farmhouse part to become the gite that it is today - two bedroomed, ground floor, french self catering holiday accommodation that is ideal for both the young and not so young alike because there are no stairs to climb up and none to fall down!
The cosy beamed lounge is spacious and homely with a squidgy sofa and two armchairs, wide screen television with FreeSat, a DVD player with a varied selection of DVD's, a small library of books, and side tables and lamps to provide atmospheric lighting.
The well equipped open plan kitchen diner will seat 4 people comfortably around the kitchen table. The fridge has an ice box, the full sized gas cooker has an oven and 4 ring hob, and there is also a washing machine, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee machine, crockery and cutlery, and a wide range of saucepans, cooking utensils and ovenware. All heating throughout the gite is electric and included in the rental price and Wifi is also provided free of charge.
There are two bedrooms at La Buissonniere. The double room looks onto the back garden and the twin room looks out to the front. We can provide a cot free of charge, making a total occupancy of 5 but just ask that you contact us first to be sure that we are suitable for your requirements. We can also provide a high chair, baby changing mat, baby bath, baby walker and potty at no extra charge, but by prior arrangement. Each bedroom has clothes hanging and drawer facilities, bedside tables and lamps. Both rooms also have electric radiators and all windows in the gite are double glazed.
The fully tiled WC and shower room is adjacent to, and easily accessible from, both the bedrooms. The corner opening shower cubicle has one step up (again, please do check with us first if you are not sure as to whether it may be suitable for you), and the heated towel rail makes for warm and cosy showering. A shaver point and light is situated over the mirror and washbasin. All bedding and towels are included in the rental price.
La Buissonniere is ideal for children. The large grassed area at the front of the gite is great for playing the selection of outdoor games which are provided, and to the rear there is a small secluded garden for your own private use, complete with decking area, sunloungers, table, chairs and parasol, and a barbecue for alfresco eating. Adjacent to the decking there is a swing and slide combination for the children to play close by while you relax, and we love to introduce our guests to our sheep, cats and chickens. We also have four adult bicycles and helmets for your use, free of charge, which are a perfect way of exploring the local lanes around La Buissonniere. There is plenty of space for parking and we can provide covered storage for motorcycles if required.
