About Us

Le Gaudin’s History

Le Gaudin is an 18th-century farmhouse lovingly converted into a 5 bedroom luxury B&B.

The house sits on the site of an ancient Abbey in the heritage area of Suisse Normande nestled in a valley surrounded by woodlands. Pilgrims to Mont-St-Michel once filled their bottles at the stream in the wooded grounds. Le Gaudin truly is a special place.

The House

Ensuring we kept all the character of the original, we embellished and restored the house to suit todays discerning traveller.

Every feature conveys creativity you’d expect of the region. Exposed stone walls, a huge fireplace plus the long table at which guests gather for our superb and sociable dinners.

The Grounds

Le Gaudin sits on an 4 acre site, with flowing lawns and it’s own lake.

The surroundings are woodland, peaceful enough to hear the birds sing and in Autumn hear the conkers dropping from the horse chestnuts. Amazing star gazing is to be had too as we’re blessed with hardly any light pollution.

Our Bedrooms

Every bedroom at Le Gaudin is effectively a suite. They’re very spacious with en-suite bathrooms and gorgeous views.

Each room has it’s own style and detail that not only allow you to relax in comfort, but also remind you of the local way of life.

Lounge & Dining

Whether you want to sit by the huge log fire with some Calvados, maybe sink into a book on one of our comfy sofas, or relax and dine with great company at our huge dining table. Le Gaudin will not disappoint.

There’s WWII artifacts, picture books and more to discover here, why go to bed!

Breakfast Time

It’s true that Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, a fact we take very seriously!
Every morning the choice is abundant. There’s a selection of fresh breads, pastries, cereals, meats, cheese and yoghurts for the tasting. With of course a choice of juices, tea and coffee.

The huge open living room is a delight, comfortable and full of interest and books. Bedrooms are vast and wonderfully comfortable.
