Property description

17th century farmhouse, now completely modernised, in about an acre of garden, largely laid to grass and completely fenced in. Though not isolated, it is very peacefully situated on a quiet country lane well away from the nearest main road. There is an open-fronted barn overlooking a courtyard which has been set up with table tennis and other games. New for 2016 - games room in our converted attic including pool table, table tennis and darts. Games consul also available.


This is a 17th century farmhouse, now completely modernised. Though not isolated, it is very peacefully situated on a quiet country lane well away from the nearest main road.

What is unusual and pleasant about the house is that you drive in from the lane through high gates into a courtyard surrounded on three sides by the house and its barns. On the third side it opens out to the garden - about an acre in all, largely laid to grass and completely fenced in, making this an ideal and safe area for children to play. There is an open-fronted barn overlooking the courtyard which has been set up with table tennis and other games.

The house is very comfortable and well furnished, though with an eye to making it suitable for families with children. The house has 3 double/twin bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room, large living/dining room with log fire, tv, dvd and hifi. Free Wifi


About the village - Vieil Hesdin, as its name implies, was the site of the old Hesdin before it was sacked by the Spanish in 1553. Hesdin was rebuilt at its present site, but today Vieil Hesdin remains a pretty, peaceful village situated on the banks of the river Canche, just a short drive from Hesdin. Plenty of quiet roads and tracks for cycling or walking along the river or in the nearby woods.

About the area - Le Pays des 7 Vallees is a tourist area within this region having the old market town of Hesdin at its heart. Situated at the confluence of the rivers Canche and Ternoise Hesdin has an impressive central '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. North of Hesdin is the 'Foret d'Hesdin' extending to over 1000 hectares.

15 km of forest roads and 5 km of one of the national Grande Randonnée footpaths make it ideal for walking, cycling and picnics.
