(Sleeps 5 in two bedrooms, one shower room, WiFi)
Le Grenier is accessed at first floor level via a wooden bridge from the private garden at the rear of the longere. The entrance door leads into a large open-plan living/dining/kitchenette. The kitchenette is complete with sink unit, fridge/freezer, gas hob, and multifunction microwave oven. This room is attractively and comfortably furnished, with dark exposed roof timbers and white-boarded ceiling. There is a pine table with five dining chairs, a 3-seater sofa, and a couple of wicker armchairs … not that the children will ever need them … they’ll be off down in the woodlands on some adventure! TV, DVD, Wi-Fi.
A staircase leads downstairs to two spacious (cool in summer) bedrooms overlooking the rose gardens. The first bedroom has a king-size bed, the second bedroom has three single beds, ideal for children. There is also a shower room, (complete with thermostatic shower for safety, and a “proper” shower with sliding doors, (not those irritating curtains that stick to your back!), complete with WC and handbasin. For those of you who have stayed in Le Grenier before this has now been re-arranged so that it is accessible independently by either bedroom, (it was formerly en-suite in the “grown-ups” bedroom). There is also a large built-in wardrobe, with super-clean melamine interior, complete with shelves and hanging rail.
