Had an amazing time with hosts Rob and Mandy. Were made to feel instantly at home when greater with the offer of a cold beer of cup of tea on arrival after a very long day down from Caen (doable in a day on motorways). Robs local knowledge is invaluable to first time visitors like us and you can tell he wants you to have a great time with the enthusiasm with which he talks about the local area. Very very helpful loading files on sat nav as well. The bedrooms are clean and comfortable and the shower is hot. The food Prepared daily by Mandy is just what the doctor ordered after a full day out on the hills. Hearty home cooked meals all very well done and very tasty. I have a food intolerance and pre warned them and they could have not done more for me even down to changing the menus to accommodate me. Tea and coffee was a plenty and the beer fridge always stocked. I would and have recommended this to other bikers without more
