In the thick of it!

73 Years ago this very week, the noise here would have been both terrific & terrifying! It’s a miracle that La Ducrie survived the heavy ‘Bocage’ fighting that raged all around here, not to mention the unprecedented carpet bombing that preceded Operation COBRA and subsequent ‘breakout’.

Thanks to the bravery and sacrifice of those young men (now among our very oldest and most welcome visitors) all you’ll hear today is the joyful croaking of frogs & incessant birdsong, followed by the excited squeaks of hunting bats and gentle hooting of owls as the sun goes down.

Why not join us for some genuine peace & quietude very soon.
