Nord-Pas-de-Calais cottage description

Our beautiful cottage is an 18th century fermette, combining character with a modern kitchen, bathroom and full gas central heating. The spacious living area includes a beamed living room with a wood burning stove and a dining room with a door to the courtyard. It has one ground floor bedroom and the second on the mezzanine floor overlooking the living room.
Set in its own grounds the cottage has a large enclosed courtyard with a BBQ and garden furniture perfect for lazy lunches and warm summer evenings. There is also a pretty front garden and a field at the back both with views to rolling countryside.
The village has its own crazy golf course while 2 km away there is a go karting centre. Visit the chocolaterie or chill out in one of the local cafes; there is always plenty to satisfy all ages and interests.
If you enjoy playing golf, Embry is 30-40 minutes away from at least five excellent golf courses. Agincourt with its family friendly visitors centre is about 10 km away, and the battlefields of the Somme are within easy reach.La Couple, constructed in 1943 is now a history centre with presentations on the occupation of Northern France.
Further afield, visit Monet’s beautiful house, gardens and lily pond at Giverny, and the cities of Lille and Amien. Paris (and Disneyland) is just over 2 hours away by car or train . Aqualaud, a water land adventure park, is a fun day out for all the family. Nausicaa is one of France's top attractions and a 'must see' for anyone. Brussels and the medieval town of Bruges in Belgium are also a day trip away.
Nearby towns: Montreuil Sur Mer is a 20 minute drive away with much to enjoy in the historical streets. The town is on a small hill. A delightful walk around the ramparts gives fine views across the surrounding countryside and the river, with the sea in the distance. It is a town that oozes character, with the cobbled streets and old houses linking small squares. Once home to Victor Hugo the town is the setting for Les Miserables, which is acted out around the town during the summer evenings.
Situated 10 miles away Hesdin has an impressive central cobbled 'Grande Place' dominated by the 16th century town hall. Market day is Thursday, but the boutiques, restaurants and bars, its historic church and buildings, and its status as a 3 star 'ville fleuri' (flowered town) make it a town pleasant to visit on any day. The town also has a wide range of shops and supermarkets. North of Hesdin is the 'Foret d'Hesdin' extending to over 1000 hectares making it ideal for walking and cycling.
Beaches: The sandy beaches of the Cote D’Opale are 35 min away and great places to visit in all weathers. The wide sandy beaches are usually very quiet with lots of room for families.
Le Touquet has one of the best beaches in France, long and flat and clean with all the usual beach activities, sand yachting, kites, etc. At approx. half an hour away it has many shops and a casino.
Berck also has a wide sandy beach and is popular for kite flying, sand yachting and horse riding.
Either side of the Somme Bay are the towns of St Valery Sur Somme and Le Crotoy.
Both have many attractions and plenty of restaurants most specialising in fish. St.Valery is a medieval town on the hill with spectacular views across the bay. You can take a steam train ride around the bay from either town and boat trips if the tide is high.

                      Only an hour from Calais our charming cottage, in the beautiful Seven Valleys region of Nord Pas de Calais, is located in a tranquil village; a perfect setting for walking, cycling, fishing and horse riding. Embry is ideally situated between the medieval walled town of Montreuil Sur Mer and the bustling market town of Hesdin.

                      The sandy beaches of the Cote D’Opale are 35 min away and great places to visit all year round. The area is steeped in history with museums, historic cities and the battlefields of the Somme within easy reach. Mouth-watering regional specialties as well as locally brewed beers make it a gastronomic delight.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: Living in London Mike and I both work in London schools. It is often used by our own family and friends.

                      Why the Owner Chose Nord-Pas-de-Calais:
                      We bought the cottage as a quick getaway from the stresses and strains of city life. Although we can get from door to door in 4 hours the area feels a million miles away from twentieth century urban living. Bucket loads of charm and history going back over at least three centuries mean that the cottage is full of 'quirks'. Situated in the heart of a small village community we love the sense of being part of French farming life.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The cottage has many unique features - the tree trunk which forms part of the structure of the house in the living room, the bedroom on the mezzanine floor where you can fall asleep watching the fire crackle, and the bread oven in the bathroom! We also love the secluded courtyard which is a wonderful suntrap.
