A former traditional bake house, this cottage boasts lots of period charm and character. It offers spacious one bedroom accommodation with exposed stone walls and beams and a granite fireplace. We love this property's superb views over the paddock and surrounding countryside.
There is a bright, well fitted kitchen which was extended by the present owners. The property has also been re-wired. The barn is huge and offers potential for conversion in to additional accommodation, subject to planning permission. This additional space would also be perfect for someone wishing to work from home.
The property is in the centre of a village with a bar/restaurant. It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados, a few kilometers from Sourdeval, the nearest town. Only a few minutes drive away, the town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market. The beaches on the west coast are an hour's drive away and Sourdeval is approximately 80 minutes drive from the port of Caen and an hour and forty minutes from Cherbourg. A little further afield are the D-Day landing beaches, the Mont St Michel. The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 15 minutes drive, as is the Saint Sever forest.
