Delightful spacious holiday cottage in Orne, Normandy – sleeps 6
La Fermette is a spacious, detached holiday cottage in southern Normandy and can accommodate up to 6 people and a baby - an ideal venue for 2 couples or a larger family. The ground floor consists of a large open-plan living/dining room with an adjacent kitchen. A rear hallway gives access to a shower room with handbasin, and a separate WC, and to the stairs to the first floor. A French door provides access to the patio at the rear of the property.
On the first floor there is a large landing leading to 3 bedrooms (2 doubles and 1 twin), and the house bathroom with a shower, handbasin and WC.
The cottage has electric central heating and there is also a large wood burning stove in the living room.
The property also benefits from British satellite TV (which includes radio), and a free wi-fi internet connection is available.
The cottage has a fenced courtyard garden at the front. Although small, this garden is a real sun-trap in the morning and a wonderful place to enjoy your coffee and croissants. At the rear of the house, there is a another patio with garden furniture, a large parasol and a barbecue. West-facing, this is an ideal spot for an aperitif in the early evening, and for eating outdoors as the sun sets over the adjoining meadow.

Two of the bedrooms have double beds and the third has twin beds. All three bedrooms have fitted carpets, plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, dressing tables with mirrors, and bedside tables with reading lamps. An electric hair drier is provided.
All three bedrooms also have large, wide Velux windows (at the back of the house) with delightful views of the surrounding garden and meadowland beyond, where pretty Normandy cows can normally be seen grazing.
If there is a baby in your party, we can put a cot in the twin bedroom. We can also provide a high chair, if required.

Le Haut Fresnay is set in six acres of grounds with lawns, shrubberies, mature trees, meadowland and a stream, which meanders gently down the valley.
