There is everything you could wish for here and we wanted for nothing. On my first morning I was having a coffee, looking out of the kitchen window and a red squirrel ran across the road - heaven! Unfortunately I didn't see him again but it made my day! At the bottom of the road is the canal, you can walk into Gouarec in approximately 20 minutes. It is beautiful walking along the canal, we saw a Heron twice on the bank and two Egrets warming their wings at the top of a tree. If you have dogs then you can walk for as long as your legs can carry you but just remember you have to walk back! Not far away (approx. 10 minute drive) is the Lac de Guerlédan which is well worth a visit - absolutely stunning. The water was quite low as they are making repairs but I can imagine in the summer that it would be amazing! There are lots of walks along the banks. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the cottage, its comfortable, the décor is lovely and the location is great. There is a supermarket, a patisserie (stunning!!) and an English shop (it was shutting down when we were there but I was informed someone else was taking over!). Terry and Tina are a joy to deal with and will help you in any way they can to ensure you have a wonderful holiday! Enjoy!

Thereafter, there was absolutely no scrutiny or intrusion but, whenever we ran into them, they were always seeking re-assurance as to our comfort and needs. The wi-fi provided gave reasonable speed and is reliable and consistent. TV service is also good. The setting is just about as peaceful as can be imagined but is nevertheless within easy range of several small towns and larger villages with a full range of facilities between them. Overall, a very enjoyable week's experience,
