A real rural treat

  • 5 of 5

I've not been in a gîte for years, since the days when they meant roughing it with some degree of comfort. I knew that standards have improved, but I wasn't expecting anything as good as this.

Upstairs there's not just a comfortable bed, there's even an electric blanket and a wall safe. There's also a modern bathroom with a splendid, large shower.

Downstairs is a pleasant living room with Sky TV (the free stuff), a wood burner, a comfy sofa and a kitchen with range cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer and even a dishwasher! And as the owners are English, there's also a kettle and a teapot.

Outside is a pleasant patio with furniture and visitors have use of all the extensive garden. There's also free Wifi.

Two things stood out for us though. The warmth of owners Janet and Peter, who left us a welcome bottle and joined us for an evening apéritif and chat before we left, and the absolute peace of this rural paradise, where the loudest sound to be heard was the song of various finches and one particularly raucous blackbird. Even a local cockerel couldn't be bothered crowing until 11am.

With the nearest shop a couple of miles away, it's a little remote for some, perhaps, but if you like perfect peace it's just the job. Also, it's a great area for cycling and walking, while by car, Le Touquet and Bourgogne are within 20 miles

A most enjoyable break, highly recommended.

Relaxing break in a cosy and comfortable cottage with pleasant owners on site

  • 5 of 5

We were last at Heather's House 3 and a half years ago - but this time stayed for 6 nights- more time to enjoy how peaceful the countryside is.

We were blessed with sunny dry but cold weather but the log burner with an abundance of logs ensured we were warm and comfortable.

The cottage is spotlessly clean and has a homely feel- we could relax in comfortable surroundings.

In a good position to reach the coast at Le Touquet and Hardelot Plage - towns such as St Omer and Boulogne in easy reach and this time we even ventured further making our first visit to Vimy Ridge - amazing and emotional day - quite breathtaking! !

Will certainly not leave it as long before we return

Great pleace to get away from it all

  • 4 of 5

Lovely place for a bit of peace and quiet from the big city. The owners are great, and really helpful if you need any info for the best places to go etc. Lots of nice areas to go with in 30min drive, more or less.

Would recommend it.

Lovely location tucked away in the Pas de Calais countryside

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation is clean and comfortable, with two areas to sit out depending which way the sun is shining. The kitchen area is very well equipped. The owners are very helpful and accommodating. The surroundings are very peaceful but there is a supermarket and petrol station in the next village, and towns like Montreuil and the beaches near Le Touquet are within easy reach.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having these guests stay with us. They left the gite in excellent condition and I would recommend them to any other gite owners.

If you like peace and quiet, this is for you!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Wicquinghem. There was so much to see and do and beautiful walks around the property.

The hosts were truly wonderful and looked after all our needs.

The cottage was clean, beautiful and well equipped.

There is also a beautiful old church close to the cottage.

The driving is quiet and easy, with little traffic.

We wish we could have stayed much longer and if possible, we will definitely return.
