BFB's Overview

'La Vieille Abbaye' might once have been the site chosen by local monks for their abbey but a recent careful and luxurious renovation by its Anglo-French owners and Stephane and Kate Le Moigne, who live on site with their young family, has made it a place both parents and their offspring will find truly worship-worthy!

The setting alone is stunning being a 600 acre dairy farm with beautiful rural views and neighbourhood Friesians almost as far as the eye can see, but it’s the attention to detail in the interiors, facilities and services, including optional evening meals, that really make the Abbaye a truly special find. The interiors are a pretty yet elegant blend of Scandinavian country chic and pretty French antiques, whilst the truly huge list of baby gear (see grey table below) guarantees stress-free packing for parents. A play barn in the grounds promises all-weather activity on site to keep mini guests happy without having to plan full days of adventures.


Luxury Suite Overview:

A stylish, spacious and practical family B&B/Self-Catering Luxury Suite, situated in set on the first floor of the 17th century farmhouse and makes a very romantic bolthole for a couple with a baby and/or a small child since it boasts a huge four-poster bed and a beautiful bathroom with roll top bath and vaulted ceilings. There's also plenty of space for either two beds (under 12s only) or a cot and a child's bed, as well as a small but fully equipped kitchen. There's no need to slave over a hot stove though since owner Kate is on hand to delivery sumptuous farmhouses and evening meals on request.

Venture outside and families can make use of the property's well-equipped indoor play barn, well-equipped playground and pet paddock.
