Our hens and ducks are free range and supply us and our guests with fresh eggs daily. Sevenne is child frendly, ideal for families, couples and house hunters. . The accommodation: On the ground floor; A spacious open plan reception room with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and lounge with comfortable furnishings. There is a family bedroom which sleeps 4 (double bed and bunk beds), with a vanity unit and a seperate toilet and sink. On the first floor:, A twin bedded room which sleeps 2 and seperate family bathroom with walk in shower, bath, toilet and sink. . There is UK satellite TV and WiFi access if you need to keep in touch with the outside world! Sevenne is our home and not just a business, it is very important to us that our guests enjoy their stay and make the most of their holiday. Although we are on hand we keep very much in the background but can be contacted if needed . Drake Cottage is perfect for walkers, golfers, cyclists, bird watchers, artists........ or why not sit by the pond or under one of the many willow trees with a good book and a glass of local wine! Sevenne is a slice of paradise! Tranquil, peacful, relaxing yet only minuites from the busy Dordogne for the more active. Why not learn a new skill, we hold weekly silk painting workshops for adults and children which are available exclusively for our guests. We also offer dinner on arrival/departure or during your stay.More
