About Mrs I Wood

We started coming to this area by means of renting a friends house to get away from our busy working lives.We liked this area and could travel from our house in sussex to Hesdin in 3 hours so it became a regular trip.

when some 5 years later my husband was offered early retirement we decided to take a chance and buy a property here.

we enjoy the all the area has to offer and family,friends and grandchildren visit often.

Mrs I Wood purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Mrs I Wood chose Tortefontaine

we like this area and the people in the village made us very welcome.

we spent 6 months renovating the cottage, taking all the bits from friends gites we liked and tried to put them into our own.

Some 9 years later we are still enjoying and looking forward to our guests arriving.

Many now return again and again.

What makes this cottage unique

the cottage offers all things to all sorts of people,we enjoy meeting people and feel in a small way that for what ever reason they come to visit be it a first holiday for a small family,a special birthday or anniversary or just to get away from the stress of busy working lives that our guests have a good holiday and for a time they can relax and enjoy their stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Please read this years reviews and we hope this will help you decide. If you need any further information please ask.we have lots of guests who stay for their special celebrations, be it an Aniversary, Birthday, Honeymoon

This gite had all the necessary mod cons for a comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Norman and Irene were very welcoming and full of knowledge of local amenities and places worth visiting. The gite is set in a great location for accessing other tourist sites and main attractions. Nice touches, such as plenty of reading material, a barbecue and a wonderful bottle of red waiting for us on arrival. The gite is surrounded by trees that houses birds of various descriptions and have made it their home as well. I would recommend this place to travellers not wanting a long drive from Calais (only about an hour) and planning to see some of the northern west coast.

A little piece of quiet tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived home from 4 lovely nights stay and oh do i wish i was back there now, what a lovely peaceful retreat, and what charming people Irene & Norman are, not forgetting charlie the dog, who i could have brought home with me. Delightful little cottage and as cleaner place as i have ever seen, plus with all the mod cons you need. Easy reach of all the coastal towns of the somme estuary, and close for all the WW1 sites. I will return and will be recommending this to all my friends. Thank you for making us so welcome.
