This large house offers comfortable living on a grand scale. The three bedrooms have their own bathrooms and separate toilets. The dining room seats 10. The library leads into a cosy lounge around the open fire and glass doors open onto the terrace which is surrounded by mature bushes and ferns. The garden is a paradise for birds. Situated in the village of Campagne les Hesdin it is convenient for shops and amenities. The surrounding countryside of Le Pays des 7 Vallées is very beautiful. Walking, cycling, cultural activities and fine dining are all on the doorstep.
A group of seven of us travelled to stay in Campagne les Hesdin after selecting it from the website due mainly to location and being dog friendly. The first members of the party to arrive were warmly greeted by Vivian, the owner and quickly messaged us to say the house was "tremendous"! It was indeed, comfortable and cosy, perfectly clean and well stocked with whatever we needed. Vivian had gone to the trouble of decorating the house even though we arrived on December 27th and there was also a large amount of dry wood available ready to light the beautiful, open fire. The photos on the website really don't show how spacious the property is, the dining room was perfect for our relaxing dinners every night and the fire in the lounge invited long evenings of chat or a quiet read in the library area. The weather was cold but the house was warm at all times and the grounds were perfect for our Labrador to explore safely. We know the area pretty well so visited some favourite haunts: Le Paris restaurant in Le Touquet for fine dining, Saint Valery and Le Crotoy and also returned to see my great uncle's grave in Wimereux cemetery, he died in WW1 and the poet John McCrea who wrote In Flanders Fields is buried there too. Local markets in Hesdin and Etaples were great. The vet just along from the house was able to do the necessary paperwork for the dog and the lab in Etaples gave excellent service when my father needed a blood test and results.
Vivian, Merci beaucoup, you have a beautiful and very special house and we all said that we would love to visit again soon. What a great start to 2017! Couldn't recommend it highly enough, it's "Tremendous".
Thank you for allowing us the use of your house. We did enjoy our stay and were able to visit places not seen before.
The house is well equipped and certainly warm. We found the bathrooms and bedrooms very well appointed and the linen and towels provided were excellent.
However, there is a downside to our visit. My wife has problems with loss of sensation in her feet. (like vertigo). She was not able to access the television "pit" and found the steps to the dining room challenging.
I, personally, did not like the "pit", and would definitely not like to visit with small children; the temptation to jump down is too much. Even our older boys had to be restrained. The entire living area appears to be tired, the insides of the blinds very dirty.
As a family of seven bringing our own provisions we found it difficult to make space in the larder. It seems to be full of the remnants of previous tenants.
The garden is overgrown, and, in fact, I was disappointed upon our arrival to see the state of the exterior. The boys explored the garden in wellies, but none of the adults ventured very far.
I am sorry to give such a negative report, but you did ask!
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.

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.
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!
The Riches family
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.
