A warm welcome from Sheila and Tony…

We will endeavour to make your stay at Hill Crest Gite a memorable one!

Here’s what some of our guests had to say.

 

Superb gite, stunning gardens and warm welcome – perfect holiday venue

We got the warmest of welcomes from Sheila and Tony when we arrived and it just got better from there. The house was beautifully furnished in every room and had the most comfortable beds we’d ever come across on holiday – they were so good even our grandchildren kept talking about them! This was also the best equipped gite we’d ever stayed in. Everything you could want for was provided, from a delightful welcome pack, all the basics such as coffee, olive oil, etc. and there was nothing in the kitchen we couldn’t find – right down to three oyster knives! (this really impressed us as we usually have to take our own!). The extensive gardens were lovely just to sit in and relax with the stunning views, while the pool, trampoline, swings, etc. provided plenty of entertainment and enjoyment for our grandchildren. We all had a superb holiday and our warm thanks go to Sheila and Tony for doing so much to make it so perfect.

Gite ideal avec des enfants. Super équipé, rien de manque

Cette location est parfaitement équipée, je vous défie de trouver qqchose qui manque…;-) Tout est prévu pour les enfants (salle de jeux, barrière d’escalier, lit parapluie, couverts, jeux extérieurs….). Sheila et Tony sont a la fois très disponibles et discrets, on se sent vraiment chez soi. L’accueil est chaleureux et sincères, nous reviendrons. De plus la météo était de la partie! fabuleux.

Wonderful place!

From the first mail with the house owners, Sheila and Tony, we were treated like hotel guests. They even asked us if we needed something from the shops as we arrived on a Sunday. At arrival we thought that he house is even more beautiful than it looked on the website. It was clean, cosy and warm when we arrived. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the house offers absolutely everything you need. The children loved the so-called ‘men-cave’. The property was well-maintained and it is obvious that Sheila and Tony put much effort and love in what they do. They were also very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the talks with them. The area offers so many things that are worth seeing that a week is actually not enough. We visited Mont Sint Michael, Granville and some other places including Colleville-sur-Mere. We ate a plat du jour in Vire in a place called Brasserie Le Central and it was simple but good and with friendly staff. Pizzeria Le Four a Bois in Vire was a bit of a disappointment; the pizzas were not that good and quite expensive as well. We would like to thank Sheila and Tony for their warm welcome and for our very pleasant stay!

Wonderful house in marvellous area

After a very warm welcome, we felt immediately at home. Very nice and well equipped kitchen, very cosy and clean rooms. Comfortable sitting room with plenty of cosy seats. Wonderful garden with a stunning view from the top of the hill…..Surely a place to visit again !!!

Stunning and perfect property to stay at and would book here again.

A wonderful 4 night stay at this stunning property. The views are spectacular and the property was spotlessly clean and had all the essentials (and more) provided that you needed. This included information of all the best places to visit ( opening times and prices), best local walks and restaurants to eat in the evening. Highly recommended and we will be staying again. Thanks to Sheila and Tony for making our stay so enjoyable and relaxing.

Fantastic farmhouse, amazing holiday!

We received a warm welcome upon arrival at the farmhouse, the owners have recently renovated the property and made it light and airy, with all the mod cons its like home from home with a French twist! The rooms have been beautifully decorated and the beds are like sleeping on clouds, its very cosy. The children (aged 9 and 12) loved the playroom and the outside area with the climbing frame, swings and slides There’s so much to see and do just on the doorstep, from walking and bike riding to boating and fishing, go a little further afield by car ride and there are some beautiful beaches and places of interest to visit, we had an amazing time and will certainly be booking again!! Thanks to Sheila and Tony for making our holiday stay fantastic!

Very welcoming

Sheila and Tony are very welcoming and caring for the slightest need. The house is spacious, well decorated with two fireplaces in living rooms. We recommend for a green, secluded and quiet holiday.

Large beautiful property in beautiful surroundings

We (9 of us) had a fantastic time in this holiday rental. We stayed over Christmas and we even had a Christmas tree! The owners Sheila and Tony have only had the place a few months and are currently updating the décor. They have impeccable taste.

The house is will furnished and equipped. I have my own cleaning business so obviously I do look deeply at things. I can honestly say that the place was spotless. Just take your clothes and go! Everything is there. Set in beautiful surroundings with lots to do. A must for a great family holiday, we will be back!

Very comfortable, spacious and friendly

We were made to feel very welcome when we arrived. We were a large family staying in the house and we found it to be very comfortable and spacious. We enjoyed exploring the area and found some lovely walks.

I am looking forward to going again in warmer weather and taking my watercolour paint to capture the countryside.

A Warm Welcome and Excellent Value – 5 star

Stayed at this lovely bedroom Farmhouse/Gite. Spent a week relaxing in this wonderful part of France. Sheila and Tony, our hosts made us fell most welcome and advised us on places to visit. We came with friends and liked the farmhouse so much we have decided to return with our children and grandchildren in June 2018 as there is plenty to do for all ages and lots of places to visit locally. The farmhouse is clean and well presented.

The owners are currently refurbishing the farmhouse and we were lucky enough to be the first to use the new sofas. I believe the work continues over the winter, so will be looking to see the changes when we return. There is plenty of space outside and inside for children to play and lovely views over the country side. Excellent value!

Scenery is stunning. The cottage is well equipped, couldn’t fault it at all. We will definitely be back for another visit.


A lovely place in a wonderful setting with great hosts. It has been a truly memorable holiday for the whole family from grandparents, parents and grandchildren alike.


Thank you for making our stay so easy and pleasurable, it really made for the perfect family holiday.


The kids (and big kids) loved playing in your amazing grounds.


What a fabulous week! The hosts were the most hospitable and accommodating hosts we have ever had in France. The house is fantastic and catered for our every need.


Nothing left undone, especially for the children.


A fantastic family holiday, lots to do, house very comfortable and most welcoming.


A lovely family holiday with loads of on-site activities for the kids to do (loved the trampoline) plus lots to see and do in the surrounding area. A beautiful house and many thanks to the hosts for making our stay so fantastic.
