Great place to stay
We were visiting the military remains and museums of Northern France this time, and found this little gem. Quiet, spacious, warm and welcoming, and with genial hosts. An ideal location for what we wanted as it is less than an hour from Calais, and about half way between the coast, Arras/Vimy, the V2 sites and so on. Dunkerque is also within an easy journey. The gite is well equipped, blissfully clutter free and comfortable, rural/quiet and pleasant to return to after a day's visits. Highly recommended if you're looking for a location in this area.
It was a pleasure having this family stay. They made the most of their time here and left the gite clean and tidy. I would be pleased to have them stay again.

Lovely cottage in the middle of the countryside.
A warm welcome and home from home
There is a warm welcome at Field View. It was like staying with friends but friends who understood that we needed our own space. It was clear nothing was too much trouble and so much was laid on at this home from home. The house (and garden) is equipped with everything needed to get on and relax. The location is great and we covered a lot of ground making visits in toute directions!
Perfect Holiday Home
We are just home having had a really enjoyable stay in Field View.
It is a really well appointed very spacious two bedroomed cottage in a really peaceful quiet spot. There is a large well equipped kitchen with dining table and a lounge with wood burner downstairs. Upstairs there are two really good sized bedrooms and bathroom with a decent shower. The kids really welcomed the wifi and British TV through the freeview box.
Outside there is a sunny patio with table, chairs and a BBQ which would be perfect for warm summer nights with a bottle of wine or a few beers. There is also a good sized lawn which Janet and John told us they mark out a Badminton court on in the summer. They also provide access to various garden games and a trampoline which is perfect for kids.
It is set in a really peaceful quiet location, only a few minutes drive from Hucqueliers where there is a bakery, small supermarket and a local pub/restaurant that serves good food at very reasonable prices. We had several days out to Le Touquet, Etaples, Boulogne and Montreiul which are all an within an easy drive.
Overall a fantastic break and somewhere as a family of 4 we could quite comfortably live. Thank you Janet and John for making us feel so at home and we hope to see you again.

Thank-you to the Betts family for your review. It was a pleasure having you here and we hope to see you again in the future when we can share that bottle of wine on the patio
Lovely little place for a weekend of R & R
We've just come back from a three night stay in Field View, the Gite was perfect for chilling out. The place is pretty much in middle of nowhere but fairly easy to find using Sat Nav. You can get fresh bread, crossiants etc about 5 mins drive away
There are a couple of things that are important to us when it come to accomdation, it needs to be clean, warm, have a good shower and decent beds, this ticked all the boxes. We also loved the wood burner which kept the Gite extra warm and cozy. Very functional kitchen and having two toilets was useful. Although we didnt go away to watch TV, having the Freeview box and being abke ti watch BBC etc in the evening was a great little bonus.
We didnt do much but visited Arras which was about an hour away, and had a great lunch at Le Cap Horn.
Thank you Peter and Janet for a great stay.
It was nice to have the Hoopers stay and have the facilities appreciated. The wood burner is always great to have going and brings a cheer to the gite. November can be a dull month but there is always plenty to see and do.
I hope we see the Hoopers again.
Fantastic gites, wonderful location, lovely hosts.
This was our third visit to these gites, our last two visits were in 2008 and 2009. We brought my parents this time and we have all had the most amazing, relaxing holiday. The gites are very well equipped and are very comfortable. The location is perfect, so peaceful and yet there are so many places to see. Pete and Janet are both very friendly, nothing is too much trouble and they are very welcoming - offering us all a drink as soon as we arrived. We really appreciated the milk, wine, butter etc that was thoughtfully provided in the gite on arrival.
All in all, a fantastic holiday - made even better by superb weather. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
It was great seeing these visitors again as they were some of our first guests. Catching up,on family news is always good.
