    We moved to France with our 2 children in 2012. On the site of a medieval abbey and Knights Templar pilgrim route, we have a small farm on the beautiful Normandy Manche peninsula. We are 15 minutes from both the beautiful rugged Cornish style west coast (good for surfing) and the dunes of the east coast. We are ideally situated to explore the D-Day landing beaches and Mont St Michel. Good cycling, walking as well as excellent seafood, cheeses and cider! - the Cotentin is a real hidden gem!

    I grow cut flowers and sell bouquets, sell willow kits, offer B&B as well as running cooking courses, making cakes to order and a 'pop-up' tea room in August . We have 3 double rooms that we use for Bed and Breakfast, keep chickens, sheep a few ducks and have dogs!
    We try to live sustainably, growing our own firewood in our SRC willow plantation for example, and follow the principles of permaculture. We love meeting new people and sharing experiences.
    You'd stay in one of our 3 B&B rooms, each has it's own private bathroom and we provide great home cooked food.

    We are an English family living in France, fully integrated into local French life; we're happy to practise either languages, I'm a keen cook and love to share and exchange recipes. Locally there's lots of walking, off road cycling, surfing opportunities, the coastline is really beautiful.

    - Hedge maintenance, including hedgelaying,
    - Willow plantation; maintenance, planting out this years willlow etc..
    - Cut flower garden, clearing existing and developing further
    - Veg patch, clearing
    - Building pig enclosure
    - Polytunnel - sowing seeds,mulching etc
    - shredding/chipping for mulching

    We're pretty flexible, we have a range of tasks, so even if you're just interested in staying for a day or two on your way to somewhere else, it's not a problem. Equally we could accommodate you for a number of weeks/months if that's what you're looking for.
    Around 5 hours per day, flexible as to whether you help a few hours before and after lunch or prefer a half day etc..

    The nearest (small) towns of Valognes and Bricquebec are each about 6kms away, the nearest restaurants are about 3kms away. There are buses, but they are not very frequent. Valognes has a train station so from there you can get to Paris in 3hrs. Cherbourg is the nearest larger town which is about a 20 min drive away. Beaches east and west are about 20 mins away by car. There are various trails accessible directly from the farm. The seaside villages of Carteret, Sciotot, Barfleur and St. Vaast La Hougue plus many others are all lovely. Carteret in the late Spring, Summer has a an excellent vibe. West coast is great for surfers, wind surfers etc..the peninsula is famous for it's mussels, oysters, cheeses and cider.
