About Mrs Lynn Birtles
Lynn and Duncan have been living in France for 12 years and run a b&b in their 18th century watermill. A former vehicle inspector and university administrator who have no regrets about jumping across the Channel to start a new venture.
Mrs Lynn Birtles purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2003
Why Mrs Lynn Birtles chose Sainte-Beuve-en-Rivière
The countryside is lovely and peaceful. It is within easy access of motorways and only an hour and a half from Calais. It is a pleasure to drive on roads uncluttered by cars and traffic jams, through lovely villages.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Many interesting places to visit - too many for one week. Half of the one hundred or more gardens in Normandy are to be found in this department. The mill is in an idyllic and peaceful location. It is our corner of paradise.

This place is terrific!
We stayed at Moulin d'Epinay for one week in September 2017. The hosts, both Lynne and Duncan, are wonderful and gracious people. We had a self catered studio on the third floor, and we found it to be well equipped and very comfortable. It is also quiet and peaceful. The hosts were always there to offer suggestions for things to do as a tourist, without being overbearing. If you choose to partake in some meals, Lynne is a wonderful chef and the cost is a really good value. By the end of the week, we felt more like friends than guests. There is no question that we would be happy to stay with them again, but in the meantime will be recommending it to friends and family.
Thank you for your kind comments. We thoroughly enjoyed having you to stay in our Mill and are delighted to know that you are pleased with your stay. With our best wishes for the rest of your holiday in Europe.
