Martin and Kate Pegler are retiring after living on the Somme for 11 years. We would like to thank all our guests for their support and in many cases, their continuing friendships. We have learned so much about our visitors and their lives and have felt privileged to share our home with you.

We are moving south to another farmhouse deep in the countryside of the Limousin, not far from Limoges. We will have a self-catering apartment, or gite, onsite, but will no longer provide B&B.
