Who owns this place?

Hi we are Tim and Lucy Cookson from Ilkley, passionate Francofiles and proud parents. We holiday here twice a year whilst combining our passion for interiors and constantly adding features and extra creature comforts to a house we adore. We are always happy to make new friends each year with our guests, even though we are not there, we work very hard to give our guests something that little bit special. We hope to be welcoming you soon.

What do they love about it?

We have always loved period properties ever since our first Victorian house which we bought as soon as we had 3 months wage slips after leaving university! We bought this historic former gentlemans residence in the Autumn of 2003 having scoured the market for a good few months. We wanted a house oozing with character, original features and with a bit splendour if possible!!

The large windows and the tall ceilings along with the original marble and limestone fireplaces and chestnut floors were all we needed as a starting point really and although no electrics or plumbing were in the main body of the house, we quickly went about our painstaking renovation in the spring of 2004. We extended into the adjoining barn to give us the space we needed and got our way through the brambles and undergrowth and we were receiving guests by the middle of the summer.

The following Autumn we made a start on the guest cottage at the back, this tumbling down pile of stones had seen better days and was once upon a time the servants quarters and bread oven to the main house. The roof had collapsed but we loved the cuteness of it with its limestone facade and Mary Poppins low down upstairs bedroom window. We thought with this being tucked round the back and really secluded it would make a perfect romantic couples retreat and so set about unleashing its character with a healthy nod to Provence in its styling. Some 11 years later we added a modern light bright extension with patio doors into the swimming pool.

Recently we created a wonderful alfresco kitchen, dining and lounge area in the old courtyard with a teenagers nook in the old barn which houses a pool table, perfect for families sharing all together. The main family with the children in the big house, the teenagers or the grandparents in the little house away from the noise of the kids, with the courtyard bang splat in the middle, a perfect meeting place for the important things in life, eating, drinking and being merry.

We love the village location with all its amenities and the fact you are central to everywhere like La Rochelle, Cognac. Saintes, the Marais Poitevin with great toll road and tgv links, this is our springboard into Europe.

What do the kids love about it?

Kids with love the toys in the large dining room. A large old original cupboard opens up to reveal their toys games books and dvds and they have their own little sofa to be able to watch their own tv linked to a dvd.

They will feel safe and secure tucked up their beds with bed guards, stair gates etc. Waking up refreshed to play in the swimming pool with its inflatable toys or riding about on the trikes.

A decent park is only a 2 minute stroll away, ideal if they want to run around with other children.

The wood fired pizza oven will be exciting for the little ones too, being able to build their own pizzas and watch the flames cook them in minutes.
