in Normandy

Guests to the Wilde Kitchen are spoiled for choice when it comes to things to see and do in the vicinity.

Thanks to its natural beauty and stunning coastlines, Normandy is an ideal place for driving or cycling holidays and a popular holiday destination. Sinéad is a trained local tour guide and will point you in the right direction.

'A wonderful base for exploring that part of Normandy including Mont Saint-Michel, Bayeux and the WW2 beaches.'

‘Stayed here while researching my father’s war experiences. We loved this place, the welcome, the surroundings, and the owners could not have been more helpful. We are recommending it to everyone we know, and will surely come again.'

Steeped in History

From the Vikings to William the Conqueror, Impressionist painters and World War II, the coastline is dotted with memorials, cemeteries and museums.

For Nature Lovers

Guests with green fingers can enjoy the amazing flora that Normandy has to offer – hydrangeas, fuchsias and roses, to name but a few.

Close to Events

Cherbourg, the largest city in La Manche, is just a 30-minute drive away and host to more than 50 prestigious sailing events and the largest aquarium in Europe, La Cité de la Mer.

Culturally Rich

Le Mont-St-Michel abbey, second most-visited tourist attraction in France (the Eiffel Tower is number 1) and the world-renowned Bayeux Tapestry, are both potential day trips.
