About the Owner

I am retired and living here in France with my husband Jim, who I have been married to for over forty years. We now run Penny Cottage as a holiday home and keep alpacas on our 10 acres. Our three daughters, their husbands and our six grandchildren love to visit. I enjoy spinning the fleeces of my alpacas, knitting and crochet as well as beading and patchwork quilting. Having helped my husband completely renovate the cottage we now enjoy having guests to stay. People have come from all over the UK and France plus Belgium, Holland and even Australia, with many returning again and again.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a peaceful stay in your wonderful house. We enjoyed the scenery, the walks and the animals. The winter was still there with the cold wind, we were happy to come back every evening in the cozy comfortable cottage. Thank you very much.

A perfect cottage, surprisingly spacious and comfortable. So quiet and safe for the children. It's been a real joy for us all. So many lovely excursions nearby. A wonderfully special place. Lubersac pool 5mins. 10/10. Bussiere Galant 30mins 10/10 (lake, velo rail, adventure park)

Rowden Family, London.

Wonderful week! Cottage exceeded our expectations - perfect!

Hosts attentive but not intrusive. The various animals & plunge pool a big hit with the children. Thank you Penny and Jim it has been a very special holiday, we will recommend you to our friends.

Beautiful place....wonderful hosts! :-)

  • 5 of 5

The property is everything is boasts- and so much more! The cottage is lovely & the thoughtful touches from the hosts appreciated :-) beds comfy, cottage very clean, clear & helpful instructions/guide books in French & English. The outdoor pool was a joy to the children....and big enough for adults too.

The friendly dog and the fabulous Alpacas owned by the hosts are great company and the area is spoilt with wildlife; bees, cows, butterfly's, lizards, kestrels & buzzards to name a few.....

The stars on a clear night are truly spectacular and the local village a good distance away.

I truly cannot recommend this cottage enough! Penny, Jim and their lovely family were always on hand if necessary and were very friendly but also left us alone to our own (huge, safe, gorgeous) space.

Penny.....Jim....thank you!! :-) We will be back in 2018, God willing!

Authentic French cottage in a beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Penny Cottage, the facilities are excellent.

Penny and Jim are welcoming hosts who gave us lots of information regarding events that were happening in the area during our stay.

We loved seeing the Alpacas they are such beautiful creatures and we have to mention Kim and Blue the friendly dogs.

We would recommend this cottage to anyone who enjoys the countryside, it is so peaceful, a great place to get away from the rat race and relax.

Lovely Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had a very tranquil & restful holiday in a delightful cottage which was also well equipped. The Owners made us feel very welcome as soon as we arrived, as did Sky & Kim ( the family dogs)

Penny & Jim gave us lots of helpful information about the surrounding area,things to see & do and also introduced us to the Alpacas! Which were delightful- one born whilst we were there which was very exciting.

Lovely Cottage, lovely Owners!

Fabulous Cottage

  • 5 of 5

As a party of 6 (sometimes 8!) and a Springer Spaniel, in a 'cottage', we were pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness of the accommodation. Everything you could possibly want or require on a holiday was supplied; fluffy towels, bed linen, soap (for washing clothes, dishes and self), a dishwasher, washing machine, large fridge and freezer, English TV (though with so much to see and do, it was only used in the late evening or at breakfast, but only if it was too chilly to eat al fresco), and the wood burning stove....a great hit with all the family. The owners, Penny and Jim were ever the considerate hosts, never intrusive, but checked everything was okay and when local knowledge was required, eg, vet, good places to eat, their assistance went above and beyond all expectations. So peaceful and tranquil with stunning views and lovely on-site walks amongst the Alpacas, would most definitely stay there again, (if they'd have us!!). Would suggest that first timers print out the helpful directions as the cottage is not visible from the road!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. A superb location. We had a wonderful holiday.

It was important to us when looking for the right property for it to be in a quiet scenic location, yet easily accessible from the motorway and airport. All our French visitors, local or holiday makers say how tranquil it is and all the English say how did you manage to find a place like this. We have good access to shops, restaurants, scenic villages and walks. Lakes for fishing and for swimming plus lots more.

We are between Brive and Limoges airports and each is less than an hours drive and car hire is available. Flights can be had with Ryanair, Flybe and City Jet. If you are driving we are 15 minutes from junction 44 of the A20 motorway about a 7 hour drive from Calais.


Lubersac is 2 km. Pompadour 7km. Uzerche 12km. For lots of places of interest see our website.

From the Owner

So here we have found a property with room for the children to play with no passing traffic.The plunge pool is for your private use and it is only 2 km. to the large village pool with slides etc. Everyone loves the alpacas and we have babies being born between May and August. We are here on site should you need us but the properties are about 100m apart so you have your own space.
