Le Mesnil is a commune in the Manche department in Normandy in north-western France.

It consists of a three property hamlet 1 km to the west of Barenton. The existing traditional stone properties are believed to have been built around 1830-1840 and became the centre of the cider making exploits of the nearby farms[citation needed]. In some decay, there is also a round capped bread oven in which, there is living memory of it being used after the Second World War (1949)[citation needed].
