The Cow House offers you a charming, comfortable and relaxing home from home for up to 6 people.

The well equipped kitchen and large dining room gives you a chance to enjoy all that lovely French food and wine in a beam ceiling rustic setting.

The flower filled, sunny and secure garden allows children to play safely in the sandpit while you relax on the swing seat. Or they'll be kept amused in a playroom with toys, a dolls house, table football and an indoor swing from the ceiling.

In the evening, you can snuggle up on the high comfy sofa and choose from our selection of DVDs before heading for bed in our super comfortable beds. There are two bedrooms with two kingsize beds and two single beds.

It is a fantastic place to relax and unwind at any time of year. The village is in the Seven Valleys and has lovely walks, bike trails and things to do. The nearby Opal Coast has glorious sandy beaches, golf courses, a theme park, summer festivals and a brilliant water park. Paris is just over 2 hours away by car or you can take the TGV from nearby Arras.

The area has plenty of interesting history: Montrueil-ser-Mer is a fortified town made famous by Victor Hugo and Les Miserables. Visit Arras with its huge food market and lovely squares or follow the history of the First World War sites and museums throughout the area . Vimy Ridge is an hour away while the new musuems at Ypres or the Somme can be reached within 90 minutes. The battlefield at Agincourt is 20 minutes away.

There is a bakery in the next door village (1 mile away), the amenities of Hesdin within 4 miles and markets on Thursday, Friday and Saturday in nearby towns.Throughout the summer, every village has a brocante (think village fete plus car boot sale) throughout the summer.

As our own second home, the Cow House is a lovingly restored property with a high level of comfort and charm. We have packed away our personal belongings but have left things that you would not normally find in a holiday cottage, including books, games, toys and beach equipment. The kitchen is so well equipped that we have cooked Christmas lunch for 8 with ease.

We have had the house since our son Zach (now 12) was a baby. Thanks to Zach and his sister Ada (now 10) we are well equipped for children. There is a cot, a high chair, a changing mat, kids crockery, books and toys, If you don't have children please don't worry as there is lots of very comfortable grown up space without a toy in sight!

Our prices are simple: £495 a week except for July and August (£545 a week). We accept short lets at £100 a night in off peak periods. We ask that you leave the cottage as you find it and we ask for a £100 deposit in addition to cover breakages which is repayable within 7 days of departure.
