My Aunty Wendy very kindly let Lewis my boyfriend & I stay recently at Château de Dohem & we had the most amazing time. Even though it was just the two of us, the Château felt cosy and homey – Wendy’s interior style and attention to detail is incredible – every bit of the house is beautiful. We arrived just after lunchtime (very easy drive from Calais) and were met by Sue, Wendy’s housekeeper, who gave us a tour of the house & let us know where the nearest towns were. On our first night we bought dinner from a nearby supermarket (about 10 mins drive away) then came home to cook in the kitchen (the pantry is fully stocked with everything you could need). On our second day, we drove to St. Omer – a traditional, quaint town with a beautiful Cathedral and plenty of little shops to look around – and in the evening went to a restaurant (recommended by Wendy) in the corner of St. Omer square called De Drie Kalders – the food was amazing and also great value! Back in the Château, there was plenty to do during the day & the evening – there’s a games room, plenty of DVDs, a Jacuzzi, gym, sauna etc.! We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights – and definitely could have stayed for longer! We stayed during late November which was perfect for outside frosty walks, but we’d definitely love to come back and experience the Château during the Summer! Thank you Wendy!
