There is a terrace in front of the cottage with a table and chairs, a patio to the side with loungers in the Summer and a barbeque. Within the garden, and secured by a lockable gate, is a designated off street space for guest parking. Inside the cottage on the ground floor is an open plan living space; a lounge area with easy chairs and UK TV, a dining area and a fully equipped kitchen area. Free Wifi is available. On the ground floor is the toilet and shower room. The oak stairs (not steep) lead to the double bedroom. All linens are provided and included in the cost of the rental.
All of the rooms in the cottage have a lovely aspect onto the pretty garden, charming at any time of year. The cottage is in a quiet location, peaceful and secluded, and yet is only a 5 minute easy walk from the lively, bustling centre of Honfleur.
Cherry Tree & Apple Tree Cottage are set in a quiet location in a pretty orchard style garden, yet are only a 5 minute walk from the centre of the charming medieval town of Honfleur. At the centre of the old town is the harbour which is surrounded by a large selection of shops, cafes, restaurants, museums and art galleries.
Each cottage has its own off street parking space in the garden area.

After a very long drive from Lancaster to Homfleur , all in one go- I would suggest taking the ferry to La Harve, we arrive in the middle of the night without access to the app with information. I would suggest to get everything printed out with key code. We nearly gave up, but eventually got into the cottage. What a lovely surprise.! The cottage was really well equipped and very pretty. it was so convenient to walk into town and all the nearby attractions. We had some nice outings too and the weather was good. A plus was that our neighbours was so friendly and we had a BBQ together. We will definitely be coming back.

Having spent a week in this cottage, I must say it was very impressive and a perfect place for two people. The cottage was very well appointed, very comfortable and in a perfect quiet location (considering it was only a short walk into the town centre).
The information supplied by the owners was spot on and they were very helpful.
The cottage was well equipped with everything you could possibly need and I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family.
Honfleur itself was a very pretty town with a lovely harbour and plenty of good restaurants. The only thing I would say about the restaurants is that they are very seafood orientated but as I love seafood that was fine by me! There are also lots of other options.
Honfleur is in a very good location and within fairly easy reach of Caen, bayeux and the Normandy beaches and the many memorials and museums.
All in all a lovely relaxing holiday.
We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay at Apple Tree cottage. It is in a peaceful setting just a few minutes walk from the town. Comfortably furnished and ideal for two people.
We have recently returned from a week in Apple Tree Cottage in Honfleur. We have been renting gites in France for well over 30 years now and have experienced the good, the bad and the ugly in that time. Apple Tree Cottage turned out to be one of our very best finds. It has only been renovated recently and to a very high standard. Immaculate is a fully justifiable description. It is small, just right for a couple, and the decor and fittings are tasteful and relaxing. Ours was a summer visit but we are sure that in the colder weather it would be a very snug and cosy refuge. The garden is contained and includes secure parking. Honfleur town and the old harbour are just a ten minute walk away and the nearest supermarket is only five minutes. Honfleur is an attractive and bustling town with many art shops and a great choice of restaurants. Etretat, Bayeux, Caen, Falaise and Arromanches are all within reach.
Mr and Mrs Walker are congenial hosts keen to ensure that their visitors enjoy their stay. We recommend their cottages and Honfleur without reservation and we look forward to returning in the very near future.

We have just returned from a great week staying in Apple Tree Cottage. The cottage was spotlessly clean, very well equipped with an excellent shower and a very comfortable bed !! Being only a 5 minutes walk from the harbour where numerous cafes, restaurants etc can be found the cottage is well located. A Carrefour supermarket is a few minutes walk also a short walk on the Rue de la Republique is a boulangerie; the bread is yummy ! The outside space of the cottage is very peaceful, a lovely spot to enjoy a glass of wine, eat Al Fresco or just sit and read. Honfluer is a good base to visit the Normandy Beaches, take the coast road. A easy drive to Giverny home of Claude Monet is well worth a visit, just an hour and half car ride. If you like "fish" head for Trouville sur Mer, fantastic fish market. You can see from the "before" photograph hanging in the cottage that the cottage has been renovated with thought and attention, well done Mr & Mrs Walker.
Small but beautiful! We stayed for a week and we were lucky to have the garden just for us (the second apartment was not occupied). Compliments for the tasteful renovation! I'm sure we will come back.
