About Catherine Broughton

The beach! We love the beach, barely 4 kms. We chose this area for its excellent climate, offering warm, lazy spring & autumn days & long hot summers. There is something for every age group in the general area, the beaches being a particular attraction. We bought this huge old place in 1995 & restored it ourselves.Old properties, dating to the 17th century. We have hosted all sorts from ordinary folk to Lords and Ladies and famous personalities & have received lots of excellent reports. Our own house not far away. Staff available if there is anything you need.

Important note: the ownersdirect web site recommends you phone me to check I exist but I am away most of the winter & in summer am outside. However I had advertised with OD for 12 years so I am sure they will confirm I exist !

loved it

  • 5 of 5

This was a really very pleasant place, an old barn converted in to a superb holiday venue, with an excellent mix of old and new. The best part was perhaps the walled garden at the back which was lovely for outdoor dining. Child-friendly. Well equipped and spotlessly clean. Trying hard to think of a down side a bigger food mixer would have been good, and a few more BBQ utensils. But it was lovely and we loved it.

The perfect place to stay for all ages!

  • 5 of 5

I arrived with my family - three boisterous children plus granny- to find our gites comfortable and charmingly furnished, with plenty to amuse the young on site. Cathie and Bruce, the owners, were solicitous and kind and provided us with helpful information about the area which we all enjoyed exploring. All in all, an excellent holiday. We hope to return next year.
