Prestigious B&B Accommodation in historic Manoir an idyllic setting in extensive gardens and grounds. Ideally located for D-Day Beaches and Norman history battlefield tours there are award winning golf courses and restaurants within easy reach.
Le Manoir d'Hérouville is easily accessible from the Channel ports of Caen/Ouistreham and Cherbourg and Caen Carpiquet airport.
Serene and beautiful Le Manoir de Hérouville is a perfect gem set in 17 acres of gardens and paddocks amidst quiet rural countryside. Bordered by the magnificent Fôret de Cerisy which offers possibilities for walking, riding and cycling and nestling midway between the ancient Norman towns of Saint Ló and Bayeux it is an ideal location to get away from the cares and stresses of daily life and relax in elegant style.
There are 3 very large bedrooms in the main house. The Toile Suite is our premier room and is a romantic oasis for a first or perhaps a second honeymoon the Blue and the Indian Rooms are elegantly furnished with much loved family antique furniture each bedroom has an antique canopied king or double bed and in addition are spacious enough to accommodate 2 further single beds if required. All rooms have large and modern private bathrooms, with complimentary toiletries and huge white towels. There is a comfortable and elegantly appointed drawing room on the ground floor where guests may meet before breakfast, relax with tea and home made cake in the afternoon or chat over a glass of something intoxicating or soothing before bed, and a charming and relaxed dining room close enough to the kitchen to appreciate the fragrance of freshly baked bread in the morning.
Garden Cottage has been renovated with the less able bodied in mind, a ground floor building situated adjacent to the Manoir it is peaceful, comfortable and private it contains a charming bedroom for 1 or 2 persons and an en-suite wetroom. It can be used as a bed and breakfast unit with breakfast taken in the Manoir breakfast room or in conjunction with the Pigeonnier making it an ideal place for Gran and Grandad if there are more than four.
The Pigeonnier was the Manoir dove cot and its size possibly denoted the social standing of the original builders, now renovated it has been turned into a charming hideaway for 2 or 4 persons. The mezzanine top floor is a twin bedroom with views over the extensive ponds and gardens, the middle floor is a double bedroom with en-suite modern shower room and the ground floor has a small but well equipped kitchen, dining area and a seating area with television and dvd player.
The Pigeonnier is used as a self catering holiday cottage, there is a private barbecue situated immediately outside the Pigeonnier door and charcoal is available from the main house.
There is also a barbecue and garden furniture sited at the lake which all guests are welcome to use for cooking or picnics. Why not fish for carp, barbecue and have a few beers during the long warm summer evenings.
Positioned astride the June 1944 boundary between 1st US Army and 2nd British Army, close to the airborne landings, invasion beaches, and major sites of the Battle of Normandy, Le Manoir d'Hérouville is ideally located for tours of the Normandy battles.
If you are interested in the history of the D Day Invasion but only have a short time to spend in Normandy why not ask us to arrange your tour. Collection by a highly recommended and enthusiastic tour guide is then followed by a full day bespoke private tour which covers the topics which are of interest to you.
Veterans of WWII are free of charge but please ask about our special discounts for other military veterans.

We are an American couple celebrating our 38th Anniversary and this was indeed an idyllic place. Des & Jackie are the ultimate hosts and also very well-versed in all there is to do in Normandy. We stayed in the gorgeous,spacious,well-appointed Toile Room complete with a claw-footed tub. The grounds are gorgeous as well. We highly recommend this marvelous gem with hosts extraordinaire who are respectful, congenial, polite, and friendly. They really care about your stay. Breakfast was lovely each day. This was our 1st experience with a B&B and Jackie & Des are truly invested in hospitality. We stayed there July 4-7, 2012 and enjoyed all the restaurants & sights Des & Jackie recommended. If you are looking for a charming, clean, well-appointed accomodation in a lovely setting within driving distance to the D-Day Beaches, Saint Mere Eglise, etc. this is the place ! We will always cherish the time we spent in this lovely quaint manor where guests really matter and you are made to feel welcome .

Delightful introduction to Normandy.
Delightful introduction to Normandy.
My husband and I stayed in Le Pigeonnier from April 22 to 30, 2011. We couldn't have chosen a better location for our first trip to Normandy if we had tried. Other reviewers have called the pigeonnier "quirky" and we would have to agree. Quirky in the absolutely best sense of the word. From its steep, spiral staircase to the niches in the walls formerly occupied by the eponymous pigeons, the building is absolutely charming. The timbers in the third floor bedroom are worth the price of admission all by themselves. The appointments are excellent as well. The beds are very comfortable, the linens lovely and the views beautiful. Having reliable internet service is important to us and we were very impressed with the stability and speed of the connection. The kitchen, while extremely compact, had everything we needed to produce excellent meals (when we didn't eat out and some of the wonderful local restaurants). The "welcome basket" of goodies was chock full of local delicacies and we devoured every crumb. Friends joined us for our last two days and they stayed at the manoir, which is gorgeous. We joined them for breakfasts and were overwhelmed by the choice and quality of items on offer. And, I think we tried them all! Sue, Dave, Jacqui and Dex were wonderful hosts who shared their time, insights and recommendations unstintingly. Our recommendation of Le Manoir d"Herouville is without reservation. Please go and see for yourself how remarkable it is.

We had a wonderful stay in le Pigeonnier. My children loved the quirky lodging and the comfortable amenities provided. (especially the English television stations) The self-catering apartment had everything you could want and more. I didn't need to bring a single thing to supplement the dishes, cooking utensils, etc.. Sue even stocked the fridge with a few things to start us off which was a nice touch. The owners were lovely people who gave us great information on places to eat and things to do and see. It was a perfect vacation and we would highly recommend this property to anyone. You won't be disappointed!! We didn't want to leave....

my wife an i had an execellent vacation topped off by our stay at the manoir. the setting of the manoir is in the bocage country of normandy surrounded by farms and forests. the manoir is absolutely beautiful, and our hosts/hostesses were wonderful. we could not have been more pleased. the tour of the "artillery" was one of the highlights of my stay and i strongly recommend it to everyone. we cannot wait to return for our third honeymoon.

Owner response: We can't wait either, these are nice people whose enthusiasm is contagious
My son and Grandson and I enjoyed 3 wonderful nights and days at the Manoir. The bedroom and bathroom were extremely comfortable, and the breakfasts were perfect. Home made jams, breads and yoghurts were served along with wonderful cheeses, meats and coffee. My grandson enjoyed fishing in the lake and searching for frogs with his Dad. Our hosts made us feel welcome and were very helpful with local information and directions. The three of us thorougly enjoyed a day-long tour with Major-General Graham Holland. He tailored the tour to our nneds and his indepth knowledge provided a deep insight into D-Day. Sue Roberts is a gracious hostess and makes all her guests feel at home. I have recommended the Manoir to friends and would certainly stay there again. Don't miss it!

Why the Owner Chose Bayeux:
One of the most beautiful and fertile areas of France, close to channel ports and steeped in the shared history of the British and the French, the people are charming and the food is superlative. The pace of life is relaxed, old fashioned enough to be familiar and modern enough to be comfortable, it is France at its best.
