Stylish, very comfortable, beautifully equipped, warm and inviting.
A lovely property that felt like home straight away. Vivien is very charming and has a good eye for style and comfort. Loved the James Bond style blinds, the "pit", the fireplace, the 70s style lights and the dining room. Extremely comfortable beds, excellent showers and a plentiful supply of hot water. Great that you don't have to hunt around in towns and villages to do recycling and/or dispose of rubbish. Vivien left us a very nice bottle of wine. The only things lacking were a frying pan and spare light bulbs. Lots of candles everywhere to give subtle and calming lighting. Plentiful supply of foil, cling film, toilet rolls and kitchen rolls. Would we go back? - in a heartbeat. All four of our party loved the property and none of us wanted to return home. Thank you very much, Vivien.

Quiet, private and spacious
We stayed in this property in early August and were extremely impressed at how well the amenities made us feel so comfortable and at home. 3 adults 2 children and our dog managed to get lost in the grounds so easily. The kitchen open plan living room is great for catering and cooking. We had everything we needed. The location of the property is not too far from the main routes. We spent a day and evening in Montreuil managing to catch a light and sound drama event on "Les Miserables" which was amazing! We enjoyed a day trip to Thiepval to see the great memorial and spent many hours on the beach at Merlimont which was only 20 mins drive away and absolutely vast. All visitors must try the wood fired boulangerie in town as it is really different. Supermarket in Beaurainville just 5 mins down the road and so is the vets who were brilliant. If you can, spend some time walking in the forest near Hesdin. It was absolutely huge but incredibly relaxing. Vivien gave us such a warm welcome and we will definitely return one day.
Fantastic memories made in amazing house
We had a fantastic week at campagne les hesdins. The house was extremely comfortable and well stocked. The English TV meant my son could watch the Olympics! They had great fun building dens in the amazing garden. We experienced fantastic beaches and historical attractions. Thankyou Vivian I wish we could have stayed longer!

Lovely house, fully equipped, and close to village
We were four generations, with my mother and my niece and her baby daughter all on holiday together (plus two husbands), so we loved the three bedrooms all having en suite bathrooms. The house was big and very well equipped. We particularly liked being so close to the village, with a supermarket, bakery, bistro and tabac all in walking distance.
We arrived much later than planned because of delays getting our rental car at CDG. Vivien was great; not only was she very understanding at having to wait for us, she actually went out to buy supplies and prepared a lovely dinner.
Great house, very comfortable and good location
We loved our stay at this house, which is very comfortable and well-organised, with big well-lit rooms. We particularly liked the large dining room and lounge area, which have huge sliding glass doors, which are like garden rooms, even when the weather is inclement. Also, the lounge has better sofas than in the photos, which were very comfortable and the kitchen was well-equipped. There were 5 of us in the group, plus a young baby and a large English Setter dog, and the sleeping/living arrangements worked well for us all, giving my daughter, partner and their new baby enough space for their first holiday as a family. Also, the sound proofing was very good. The house is a 10 minute walk from the centre of Campagne-lès-Hesdin, so we enjoyed walking to one of the two boulangeries each morning for bread and croissants, and there is a supermarket, pharmacy etc. There are great places to visit, and locally nice walks and runs. Vivien was there to welcome us when we arrived, and gave us a very friendly introduction to the house, and was then on her way, and arranged for us to return the keys to the housekeeper when we left.
Can't wait to go back!
The owner met us as arranged on our arrival day - her husband was busy strimming the grounds as we had only confirmed the booking a few days before, but they still both apologised for all the grass not being cut. This really did not matter to us as we understood they did not have long to prepare the house, and as it turned out the weather was not nice enough to sit out on the grass anyway, so it really didn't affect our little holiday. We were showed the wonderful house and made to feel at home, Vivienne was lovely and my kids wanted to dognap her three gorgeous Airedale terriers...
The house was as described - clean, smart, spacious, comfortable and interesting, and we would go back in a heart beat.
Vivienne recommended a restaurant called Froggys in nearby Montreuill - it is definitely worth a visit - try the Lemon tart if you dare! Astonishingly sour in a wonderful grab-you-by-the-seat-of-your-pants kind of way.
The only thing I would mention (and this is absolutely not a negative of the house or it's owners - this is just a comment on the region at this particular time of year) is that if you take kids in the May/June half term, all of the seaside towns are still on 'closed season' mode - we found it hard to keep them entertained as Aqualud in Le Touquet was closed, the theme park called Bagatelle was closed, and most of the seaside towns still had a shut down feel to them. Maybe it was to do with the weather being a bit grey and overcast as well - like I said - we were just a bit unlucky that the sun did not shine very much whilst we were there! However, this did mean we spent a few evenings in the house around the open fire drinking wine and eating baked camembert with fresh bread, so the house saved us from what could have been a frustrating few days for the kids. In fairness any fault for this was with ourselves as we had presumed everything would be open by June.
Hesdin market on Thursday mornings is worth a visit, Arras was a nice town, Montreuill was lovely and the Carrefour down the road from the house has everything you could wish for.
We would all love to go back - both to the region and to this lovely unique house.

- Roc à l'eau is the ideal destination for a group of friends or family wanting comfortable, luxurious accomodation in the beautiful region of Pas de Calais. The house is very spacious, situated in a huge garden, so even though you are in the middle of a big village with all amenities on the doorstep (baker, supermarket, bank, chemist) you feel very 'far away from it all'.
