"Fantastic in every way!"
We spent 2 wonderful weeks in the beautiful Blanchou Cottage. The property has lots of character, and contains everything you could possibly wish for. All rooms are comfortable, and there is plenty of room inside. The gardens are extensive, and amazing in full bloom. The swimming pool and decking area are fantastic, providing hours of fun, or time to relax. The Summer kitchen is a great space for relaxing at any time of the day, with a nice barbecue, fridge and plenty of seats, loungers, and even outdoor games. Allan and Celia were fantastic hosts - friendly, thoughtful, helpful and great surrogate grandparents! Charlie the dog was a welcome addition to our holiday, and provided an extra playmate for our girls. Although there are no amenities within walking distance, there is an abundance of shops, restaurants, river beaches etc a short drive away. The surrounding area is beautiful countryside, with plenty to explore. I would highly recommend Blanchou cottage for a family holiday. We would love to return one day, as we had an extremely memorable fortnight here, and did not want to leave!
Recommended for: Age 55+, sightseeing, families with teenagers, families with young children and romantic getaway
