The Owners

We first came to the area from Bristol in 2002 and were so impressed with the area we bought a renovation project which we spent the next few years improving during family holidays. We already knew the previous owners of the farm, Jay and Richard Clay, who became friends and we stayed here whilst our own house was uninhabitable. We were falling in love with Normandy and when we found out that Jay and Richard were retiring we asked whether we could take the farm on in 2006 and we haven’t regretted a moment. Our two daughters rose well to the challenge of learning a new language and adapting to French life and we have made many good friends locally, and enjoy many of the local events and festivals whilst introducing our neighbours to cheddar cheese, Hellman’s mayonnaise and proper beer!
