La Fermette is a beautiful converted cottage, accommodating up to six people plus a baby. Surrounded by five acres of Le Haut Fresnay’s grounds and meadowland, the cottage is set in an acre of private lawns and gardens. In addition, a stream, which runs through the garden, and two ponds attract a variety of wildlife.

The cottage offers:

  • 3 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms
  • Log-burning stove
  • Electric convector heating
  • UK satellite TV & DVD player
  • Wi-fi internet connection


La Fermette has a fenced courtyard garden at the front of the house. Originally, this was the garden for the family – the rest of the grounds were used as the “basse-cour” (farmyard). Although small, this garden is a real sun-trap in the morning and a wonderful place to enjoy your coffee and croissants.

In addition, La Fermette has a private patio at the back of the cottage which is surrounded by garden (and is not overlooked by the other houses).

There is a small, shallow pond to the rear of the house with an expansive lawn to one side.

The back patio has garden furniture, a barbecue and a large parasol – the perfect place for an early-evening aperitif followed by an alfresco supper as the sun sets over the meadow.

The large lawn alongside the cottage provides an ideal place for children to play, where parents or grandparents can either sit and watch, or else just rest awhile in a shady place under an old apple tree. The lawn, bordered by mature hedgerows and trees, runs down to a small orchard, where there is also a small “stumpery”…

… and at the opposite end of the lawn, on the approach to a short woodland walk alongside the stream which meanders down the valley, you come across the most recent addition to Le Haut Fresnay’s property portfolio – our very own Bug Hotel, where there are always vacancies for new residents!

La Fermette is available for a maximum of 6 people (plus a baby). The ground floor consists of a large living/dining room with a separate, though visible kitchen. The cottage has electric central heating and there is also a wood burning stove in the living room.
There are comfortable chairs and a sofa, coffee tables, lamps, a dining table and 6 chairs.
The rear window overlooks a patio with a table and armchairs, beside a pond.
The front window overlooks a small front garden, fenced and gated, to provide safety for small children.
The kitchen, with oak units, has an electric oven with ceramic hob, a washing machine, dishwasher, microwave oven, electric kettle and a 2-door fridge/freezer.
