About Mrs I Wood
We started coming to this area by means of renting a friends house to get away from our busy working lives.We liked this area and could travel from our house in sussex to Hesdin in 3 hours so it became a regular trip. when some 5 years later my husband was offered early retirement we decided to take a chance and buy a property here. we enjoy the all the area has to offer and family,friends and grandchildren visit often.
Mrs I Wood purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Mrs I Wood chose Tortefontaine
we like this area and the people in the village made us very welcome. we spent 6 months renovating the cottage, taking all the bits from friends gites we liked and tried to put them into our own. Some 9 years later we are still enjoying and looking forward to our guests arriving. Many now return again and again.
What makes this Cottage unique
the cottage offers all things to all sorts of people,we enjoy meeting people and feel in a small way that for what ever reason they come to visit be it a first holiday for a small family,a special birthday or anniversary or just to get away from the stress of busy working lives that our guests have a good holiday and for a time they can relax and enjoy their stay.

Lovely Lovely Place and Hosts
The cottage was so clean and welcoming and Norman and Irene were lovely down to earth people and Charlie the dog was a friend for my dog frank for the week
Lovely little place
We spent a week here in mid-August with our seven year-old son. We had to drive around thirty minutes most days to find things to do for children as Tortefontaine is a small village. Norman and Irene were brilliant- full of local knowledge and directions to here, there, and everywhere (they even borrowed a PS2 from a friend because they knew we were bringing a young child!) The cottage was lovely and had all you could need (the patio with BBQ was beautiful, and if we'd had better weather we would have been out there every evening). We'd certainly recommend a stay, but make sure you bring stuff for kids to do in case of bad weather!
Lovely location. Peaceful and tranquil.
Perfect location not too far from Eurotunnel. Pretty villages all around. Primrose Cottage a delight and plenty of help from Irene and Norman in directions. Not forgetting Charlie their dog!
Nicely located . 30 mins from beach by car. Garden not private as you are over looked. It’s cosy but cluttered. Kitchen has everything but no washing machine.
Owners are very pleasant with Charlie their friendly dog .
our second home!
This is a lovely cottage which we use while we are renovating our own property. Again this time the owners have improved the Patio garden, it looks lovely, comfortable outside furniture to relax in
while haveing a BBQ and glass of wine.
Lovely cottage, spotlessly clean and everything you could possibly need. This was a return visit and we will be back. Thank you for making our grandson so welcome he even asked to go back as we boarded the ferry.
