Tourist Attractions

There are a wealth of activities for everyone within our local area, in addition to attractions a little further afield such as day trips to the Channel Islands or Mont St Michel. We are based in the Cotentin & Bessin Nature Reserves where you can explore the beautiful and largely unspoiled countryside by clearly marked cycling, mountain biking, hiking, horseriding, and walking nature trails – many of which are car free.
