BFB's Overview

Thyme and Willow cottage provide the backdrop to an idyllic family holiday. Each cottage sleeps six plus an infant and can be rented independently or booked together for larger/multi-family groups. Designed with families in mind, the owners, who happen to also run a larger gite cluster nearby have perfected the formula for successful family holidays. The cottages come with a wealth of thoughtful baby gear (see fast facts panel for details), an indoor playroom, animal petting farm, heated swimming pool and more, all designed to ensure little ones are fully entertained. As the saying goes ‘happy kids, happy parents’ and the cottages provide that welcome peace of mind to the grown-ups so their free to relax, unwind and soak up their beautiful new surroundings. We recommend a tall glass of wine on the sun-drenched terrace – heavenly!

Accommodation Overview:

Willow Cottage is a beautifully renovated traditional stone farm cottage which sleeps up to four adults, two children and an infant in three bedrooms. The first is a spacious double with super king-sized bed and beautiful views over the countryside beyond. The second is a pretty twin room and the third is best suited to children with its set of bunk beds and cot.


All the bedrooms are upstairs along with the modern family bathroom which has a bath and shower. Downstairs there is a large living room complete with comfy sofas and a wood burning stove (great for low season). The open plan living area allows for a dining area and well equipped kitchen (oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer & more). There’s also a handy downstairs WC.

Outside there’s a veranda which has a private terrace and BBQ. A gravel pathway leads guests to the shared, enclosed swimming pool (heated).

Location Information

Who owns this place?

Mark and Lara Bishop had a dream in 2002 to create a special place for families to holiday at where everything you would need practically was there ,taking away all the stress of travelling with everything you would normally have at home ..." a home from home"
Having two children themselves at the time Benjamin aged 6 and Charlie aged 2.5 they had a good idea as to what toys and play equipment was loved by children.There was a dream to create a special place for imaginative play and running free, and so Pagel was born.
Lara had a background in sales and marketing and Mark was an account manager but with a skill set in building and DIY hence the perfect partnership was formed .
Their dream became a reality when after six months of searching they found Pagel nestled on a hillside in the Lot South West France.

Although no longer living onsite, Pagel is still managed by the Bishops from the UK and with Fiona, Carole, Sarah and Steve our fabulous English speaking team living locally to Pagel the family friendly experience and magic of Pagel lives on.

What do they love about it?

Safe play, running free, imaginative play areas, pirate ship, dressing up clothes and arts and crafts, a heated pool and toddler pool and saltwater to protect little ones, like minded families on site for evening glasses of wine and a chef for the night service for that special night in, weekly family bbq, children's tea service and fresh frozen food on site allows you all the freedom of self catering with options for treating yourselves on holiday by having food provided when you would like it . Fantastic views, peace and quiet, time together, time to play, time to relax, memories to make ...........holiday memories of time together as a family in a very special place never forgotten.

What do the kids love about it?

Wow the pirate ship with dad at the helm, the indian village with the real totem pole and wooden Indian chief, dressing up as someone different every day and running free in the meadow with wild flowers and butterflies.The heated pool and toddler pool for hours of fun, pool toys and play equipment everywhere, climbing and swinging, sliding and bouncing on the trampoline, my own toy box in my gite and my special Pagel present when I arrive, the play barn with soft play and arts and crafts and riding all day on little tractors and trikes.The lizards and birds and deer in the lower field and playing with my holiday friends every day, so much to do and so many places to go to near to Pagel like the Monkey Park, Water Park and castles.
