    Property description

    Our 18th century converted watermill is situated in a quiet valley in Suisse Normande where the sound of the river and birdsong are usually the only sounds you will hear in our two acres of garden and orchard.

    Beautiful walks can be taken directly from the house as footpaths and quiet lanes lead in all directions. There are many nearby attractions, including the riverside town of Clecy, where cycling, kayaking, pedalos and climbing can be enjoyed. Clecy also has a superb golf course.

    If you are a keen cyclist, the surrounding area is fantastic - as an ex-professional cyclist (Australian team) I find the roads and lanes are the best I have ever ridden, with little traffic and well-kept surfaces, it is sheer pleasure!

    The valley is a wildlife haven with wild roe deer, red squirrels, pine marten and wonderful bird watching. There are historic gardens, castles, museums, art galleries and Second World War sites within easy driving distance.

    We are ideal for an overnight stop on your way south or for a longer break in this lovely region.

    "Restful "

    I spent a much needed night at Bill and Terri's to rest my legs and loved every minute. They were very welcoming and informative on local history. The Old mill has alot of character and is everything you would imagine a building of this period to be. I will be recommending them to all my friends and family who want to visit the area in the future. My only complaint is that I could not stay longer!

    Response to review:
    Joshua and Nero were the most perfect guests and it was a delight and privilege to have them stay with us - it would have been wonderful if they could have stayed longer so we could hear all about their adventures, but pastures new awaited them. We wish them both a happy and safe trip around Europe and would love to see them again. Bon voyage!

    "Wonderful!"

    Thankyou Terri and Bill for making us feel so comfortable in you lovely B&B. The meal on our first night was a thoughtful touch, the rooms are very nice with very comfortable beds. A yummy breakfast in the morning and very kind, helpful hosts who lent us maps and even did our washing! The mill is set in a pretty valley and central to lots of attractions. We would love to visit again!

    "A Little Piece of Heaven"

    We had a wonderful stay here. Teresa and Bill were so welcoming and went out of their way to look after us. We arrived late in the evening and were thankful we'd ordered an evening meal which was absolutely delicious. The house is set in such a beautiful, scenic area and we loved the peace and tranquillity of it and the fact that it was within easy reach of lots of interesting places to visit. We wished we'd had longer! The room was lovely and clean, and very spacious and comfortable and we are still missing the wonderful breakfasts. A really relaxed and homely place to stay..I couldn't recommend this place highly enough.

    Response to review:
    Thank you very much for the review Teresa, it was a pleasure to have you and Tim stay with us, we really enjoyed meeting you and are pleased that you had such a good break in this lovely area.

    "le moulin maison"

    we had visited this part of france before as we only planned a short break of three days le Moulin maison sounded just what we were looking for we drove from Calais and knew we would arrive about 4 pm so we asked for a evening meal which was superb cooked by terri we wanted to travel no more than one and a half to two hours from the mill this turned out to be prefect visits to st malo honfleur caen all with in this time the mill was a pleasant surprise and more than lived up to our expectations BILL and TERRI were the most prefect hosts and nothing was to much trouble for them our only regret with our stay was it was far to short

    Response to review:
    Thank you Hilary and Wally, you were the perfect guests - we really enjoyed having you to stay and as you say, the time went all too quickly. We both hope that we meet you again some day - if we are in your part of the country, the Military Vehicle Heritage Museum will be top of our list of sights to see! Thank you for staying with us and for your kind words.

    We've had the most wonderful 3 nights in your lovely home. The garden's fantastic, our daughter [7yr old] loves exploring. We especially enjoyed playing badminton. Thank you for being so friendly and welcoming to all of us. Your local knowledge is impressive - we would never have known about the park with the ruined chateau. We loved our room with the large en suite bathroom, the bath being perfect for our daughter and the shower perfect for us. Thanks for a great stay! Anna & Matt (UK)

    After the long flight from Australia, arriving at your gorgeous house was like paradise. You made us feel so welcome and "at home". The meal was delicious - 3 nights was not enough so I hope we return one day. Thank you so much. Lily & Denise (Perth, Australia)

    Thanks for one of the best holidays ever - being a single traveller can be daunting but I felt so at home at your beautiful old watermill. Thanks for all the tips on local places & Battle of Normandy. My room was lovely. Jenny (London)

    About the Owner

    Having spent many wonderful holidays in France, we decided to live here permanently. We knew this part of Normandy very well and had always been enchanted by the beautiful scenery and friendly people. Having run an award-winning tearoom in England for some years, we felt that offering bed and breakfast in our own home in France would be a great way to meet people from around the world. We indulge our love of walking and cycling and are very interested in the wildlife of the area. We enjoy hosting meals for our guests and hearing about their travels and the places they live.

    Year property purchased: 2010

    Why this location?

    It's so peaceful and unhurried; the roads are quiet, the wildlife is amazing, the people are lovely and welcoming. Although we live in a rural location, we can drive to many towns with excellent shopping and dining facilities in a very short time. Walking or cycling the lanes with few cars is a wonderful experience in any season.

    What are the unique benefits of the property?

    Guests love the peace and natural surroundings, but with the convenience of being central to so many of the well known (and lesser known) attractions of this part of France. Being on such a lovely river as the Druance adds to the charm of the setting, and although we are situated in a valley, the site is very open with sunshine all day long. The garden is delightful and sitting on a seat by the river just listening to the sound of the water and the birds you feel a million miles away from the frantic life happening "somewhere out there".
