3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Aumale, Seine-Maritime, Haute-Normandie, Normandy
This unique cottage has 3 bedrooms and a truly superior range of facilities. It is located close to the historic town of Aumale (1mile 2km), where nearby you'll find a good selection of activities for all the family, from quad-biking to horse-riding. Trout or Salmon fishing is also an option in the nearby lakes. For convenience, English plug sockets are provided within the cottage. Hidden Gem Cottage with its three bedrooms, was skillfully converted in 2010. This was once part of a 1900's Cotton-mill.

Our other property for rent is Ebenezer Mansions which is a modern six double bedroom family mansion with excellent facilities. Both are set in a quiet rural setting with farmland & 2 large lakes all in close proximity. Only a mile (2Km) from Aumale town centre, Hidden Gem has a lovely waterfall and relaxing tranquil river flo...

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Prices kept the same for 2013 + 2014. We've continued to make this wonderful Cottage even more comfortable for our guests.
However, the cost for the utilities,(water and electrics) has been incorporated into this price.
Where oil is being used for heating, during the colder months there is a daily charge of £14 per day. There is also a compulsory meeters/ greeters welcome charge of £75 for weekly rentals.

It still represents a real bargain as de-luxe cottages of this size and quality, in this region of Normandy, are normally at least £250 more per week.

Bed linen is provided F.O.C as are hand towels, please bring your own bath towels. A security deposit of £300 or Euros in cash is collected with the final instalment, which will be refunded, provided property left clean & intact within 4 weeks of departure, obviously, less the charges for meeters / greeters fee + or central heating. Rental payments are due in full 8-10 weeks in advance. Booking deposits are 25% of the weeks...

About the neighbourhood
Aumale is a very popular base with Parisians, especially for the beach! Quite a historic town itself, with many of the half-timbered houses so characteristic in this region. It's not surprising then that you won't find a single charity shop in the town, it has a diverse range of speciality shops like patisserie bakeries, butchers, delicatessens and an anglers accessories shop, which by the way sells the fishing licence (~5 Euros per day).
There seems to have been a deliberate choice to place the only supermarket (Intermarche) just outside town. A tourist office in the centre will keep you updated as to what is going on in the locality.

We are pleasantly amazed by the different things we find to do here. During the summer we found an archery club just near the two lakes and b...

By Sea and Car.
With more cross channel ferry routes than any other region, Normandy is a real gateway to France. Aumale is ideally located for the long or short breaks by car to France, being so close to the major motorway network of the A28 /A29. The Channel crossing is easy from Dover to Calais by ferry. We routinely use the Eurotunnel service from Folkestone, which is so much quicker to access and also much nearer & easier. From Calais, the journey via the (A16), motorway is both quick and comfortable to Aumale. However, do bear in mind that from Calais there is a toll to pay of ~ 8 euros.
Or, Newhaven to Dieppe via LD lines, will save you about 30km each way, off the mileage, which was our previous preferred option being only 50mins away, and the 4hr crossing gives you a great...
