"4 day stay"

We can recommend this beautiful B&B in the knowledge that you will not be disappointed. The hosts Jude & Phil are excellent and the rooms are of the highest standard with an addition of a lounge for the evening. If you like gardening or just enjoy being in a wonderful garden then go to this B&B where your hosts love you to enjoy the surroundings they have created.

What an absolute gem! Chosen originally at random, probably the best b&B we have ever used ... And there have been lots! This place is idyllic. Beautifully restored farm house, gardens a delight, room immaculate, warm welcome and helpful advice about what to do. (Phil and Jude are the perfect hosts). So pleased we booked an extra night. Borrowed bikes (thank you!) and cycled in the shade of the forest then relaxed in the tranquility of the gardens at St Ceneri. There are too many places to see in France to allow the luxury of a return visit to many. This is an exception. We'll be back!

"bit frosty"
July 2014 Ruby B
just stayed for one night as a stop-over on the way elsewhere. welcome wasn't as warm as we got everywhere else and the town of Alencon is nothing special compared to other places in France. the house is nice and the rooms are what you would expect for the price - not luxury but everything you need.

"Consistently great"
July 2014 Wenw00d
La Basse Cour is a diamond. Jude and Phil make your stay so enjoyable, the rooms are spotless, the hospitality special and the gardens absolutely wonderful. Lots of hard work and thought have gone into creating La Basse Cour which has resulted in an oasis of calm in a typical French village. Try La Basse Cour, you won't be disappointed.

"Weekend trip for Le Mans"
May 2014 Francis W
This was our first stay here and it was excellent! The location is great for le mans and surrounding towns, beautiful grounds and great garden to just chill in. The hosts are lovely people very friendly and helpful and I would highly recommend this place to family and friends and we are hoping to return, great for motorcyclists (just beware of the gravel!! ) ***** 5 stars around.

I found this B&B via Internet search and what a GREAT FIND it was !! Very quiet and Very clean Phil and Jude are great hosts. It is like staying with the family relatives that you DO like. Their home is way better than any B&B I have ever stayed in and better than a lot of hotels I have stayed in in France. Free WiFi was a major plus for me to keep in touch with home. I will definitely be staying there again next time I am in France. Thank you Phil and Jude !!

"Peaceful and idyllic"

Wow ! What a find, why cant all B&B's be like this great location, charming hosts reasonable charges. My wife and I stayed with Phil and Jude for two nights recently, it was one of the highlights of our tour of northern France. We decided to break journey from Bayeux to Tours in Ancinnes for a couple of days to rest up after a hectic schedule touring Normandy & Brittany. It was great to just chill out at the La Basse Cour. The accommodation was first rate, the gardens a dreamland and Jude & Phil charming ...

"A warm, friendly refuge"
We had a terrific three-night stay at Le Basse Cour. Phil and Jude were gracious hosts. In restoring and decorating their beautiful old home, they paid great attention to detail. After three days, we were still discovering quaint "objets d'art." The same attention to detail can be found in the lovely grounds and landscaping. Everything in the house was spotless. The breakfasts were great! Thank you Jude and Phil for a wonderful, relaxing stay.

After a long day's drive from Paris, arriving at La Basse Cour was truly a pleasure. The building itself is a wonderful restoration which Phil and Jude have put much hard work and love into. Phil and Jude are welcoming and very hospitable ...

"5 day stay in Cream Room at La Basse Cour"
Dear Phil and Jude, thank you for making our stay so enjoyable. Looking at the photos of 2004-09 you have clearly put in a lot of hard work to create a really splendid B&B from the relative ruins of an old farmhouse, and are to be congratulated on doing it so well. You know how to make guests welcome and...

"No dirt, hang loose, great service!"
Jude and Phil Graham have obviously spent countless hours in crafting a beautiful garden oasis. Verbena, roses and geraniums count for the ones I knew and the other 100 or more types will go unnamed by me and left at "very beautiful" ...

"Nice Place to Stop"
I pulled up here on a Saturday night on my motorcycle without a reservation and was lucky enough to get a room. Very warm hospitality... nice room... hot shower and the breakfast pastries were amazing. And even a towel to wipe the rain off my bike in the morning. Thank you very much - loved it.

"Well, what we can we say about La Basse Cour.... we both loved it!!"
13 June 2012 Jacqui B
Phil and Jude made us feel very welcome and shared a great sense of humour. We stayed for four nights and wished it was longer. Our room and the house and gardens were immaculately kept but still very homely. We travelled by motorbike and kept the bike in the locked barn ...

"A B&B experience."

We found an oasis of peace and comfort and plan to return next time we visit France. Very interesting garden. Super house and welcoming hosts who know the area very well and have lots of 'insider' information to share with guests. We plan to stay longer next time.

"Moto GP 2012 weekend"
It had been three years since we stayed with Phil and Jude at La Basse Cour and I'm delighted to say that we had another great stay. The gardens look fantastic, even if the weather denied us the opportunity to really have a good look. As usual we were impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms, the quality of the...
