La Grange, Maintru in Seine-Maritime, a cottage in Normandy: La Grange, Maintru exterior

Quiet rural location, ideal for cycling, walking, riding and the coast

La Grange is set in the hamlet of Maintru, close to the Avenue Verte and the River Bethune. There is a large and secure garden enclosing the farmhouse itself, a half-timbered barn and a converted stable (which is used on occasion by the owner). The house was built in the 1790s in the traditional Norman style with exposed beams and an open fireplace. The ground floor accommodation comprises a large dining kitchen, bathroom, utility room, two living rooms and a TV/reading area with sofa bed. The upstairs accommodation consists of four bedrooms and a shower room.

The farmhouse is just 200 metres from the 'Avenue Verte', a 40 km cycle track that was once the railway line between Dieppe and Forges-les-Eaux. Neufchâtel (the home of Normandy's oldest cheese) is 10km to the south. Dieppe with its lively Saturday market and restaurants is 15km to the north; and further afield lie the cathedral cities of Rouen and Amiens, and the spa town of Forges-les-Eaux. Within easy reach are Monet’s house and gardens at Giverny, the charming port of Honfleur, Saint Saens, and Ry - the model for Yonville-L'Abbaye in Madame Bovary.

The surrounding countryside is best explored on foot, by cycle or on horseback. The Foret d'Eawy, a vast tract of beech trees with trails for walking and riding, lies less than 5 miles to the west. (The stables at Pomeroy are recommended). Extending from Dieppe to Fecamp and beyond is the Cote d'Albatre with its pretty seaside villages and spectacular chalk cliffs. This is an area that has 'a noticeable feeling of remoteness, with a sparsely inhabited patchwork of flower-filled meadows, verdant valleys and limestone bluffs' (Clare Hargreaves, Normandy).

Close to hand you'll find an abundance of gardens, chateaux and castles. Our favourites are: the Bois des Moutiers, a house designed in the Arts and Crafts style by Edwin Lutyens with gardens designed by Gertrude Jekyll; the Norman castle at Arques-la-Bateille; the sixteenth century Renaissance-style chateau in Mesnieres-en-Bray; and the house and grounds of the Chateau de Miromesnil. A little further away, near Rouen, is Chateau Gaillard, a medieval castle built by Richard the Lionheart.

You can, of course, just stay in Maintru, dining al fresco in the secluded garden or simply enjoying the peace and privacy afforded by a location that feels remote, but remains so close to home.

PLEASE NOTE:

Discounts on the advertised prices are available for parties of four or less and for bookings of longer than one week. Please contact the owner for details.
