We offer accommodation at the Manor with guests residing and dining with us for 2 or 3 nights. We include within our price 1 or 2 days of personally guided touring by Ben of the sites of this vast conflict – these tours are exclusive to guests staying at the Manor. Please phone or e-mail for availability.
Our Tours are all personally guided by Ben Trumble and cover mainly the US area of operations on and around D-Day June 6th 1944.

For 2017 we shall be slowly adding coverage of additional areas of battle and more information on this will appear on both our web and Facebook sites.
All Tours are conducted in our 7 seater air conditioned vehicle.
Your Tour price includes (where needed) collection and return to our local train station of Carentan or to and from the Normandy Ferry ports of Cherbourg or Caen. Accommodation, breakfasts, evening meals and drinks at the Manor are included (and also wonderfully cooked for you by Jaye) and only lunch taken ‘on the hoof’ is not included.
Our Tours are all residential as let’s face it you might as well stay here with us as in some pokey 5 star hotel!!
Our itinerary can include the areas below but could also cover many smaller skirmishes that whilst they may have failed to get into the mainstream history books – are none the less equally interesting.
