|GRENIER Gite - sleeps six in three bedrooms
|Grenier gite sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms. On the ground floor there is an open plan living dining area and
a medium sized kitchen to the front. The kitchen is equipped with dishwasher, 4 ring gas hob, mini
work top electric oven/grill, microwave, fridge freezer plus drinks refrigerator and all basic crockery and
cutlery. An open tread, cast iron, spiral staircase takes you to the first floor with double bedroom and
single bedroom, both of which have draws and hanging space. there is a modern bathroom with bath,
shower facility, toilet and basin, with loads of hot water and good pressure.. The staircase continues to
the second floor - a large open attic bedroom with 3 single beds. There is a small wardrobe and 2 sets
of draws.We recommend that this room is used by older children who are able to safely negotiate the
spiral staircase to visit the bathroom at night, or by a child in a cot (and cannot get out) however a
stairbarrier is provided. A travel cot will fit in any of the bedrooms and there is also a wooden cot on the

The charcoal barbecue is at the rear. This cottage is next to the lane. The lane is very quiet - being

by our guests on arrival - it is left locked but can be opened when shown how to. The cottage was
originally used as a grain store. It has exposed stone walls on all 3 floors .
The thick stone walls create a cellar like effect and in the heat of the summer, the cottage is a
welcome escape from the midday sun. Like Papillon it is quite a dark cottage.

our dishwasher broke down in the morning, on our return from a fantastic day out, Chris had already
installed a brand new one - which is above and beyond normal service. Our daughter has had a brilliant
time making and playing with friends and we always feel our daughter is very safe here with other families
looking out for each others children, though the environment is so child friendly we've never had any
concerns in the last 3 yrs we have been here. I would recommend these child friendly family gites to
anyone who wants a relaxing, friendly and fantastic holiday experience. My lasting memory of this year is
of our daughter playing with friends in the field behind the gite - the sun shining and kids doing what kids
should be doing - running, playing and having fun outside.
