This 19th century Coaching Inn has been lovingly restored, has full central heating, double glazing, has been rewired and re-plumbed. It is located on what was originally the route from Paris to Calais harbour in the beautiful Ardresise Valley in a village called Licques, which is steeped in history and traditions and is surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and verdant countryside. There are regular markets and festivals in both the top and bottom squares of the village.

Licques has an Abbey and is also very well served by butchers, bakers, banks, pharmacies and all you would need to make village life self-contained with amenities accessible within a stones throw from the house. It is equi-distant from the towns of Calais, Boulogne and St Omer, minutes from beautiful sandy beaches, is served by a number of golf courses, many other amenities and excellent motorways.
