It's warm, comfortable and very clean. The bed was great too, comfy and with pretty linen. The towels provided were huge and thick and soft. Location was nice and quiet but very accessible to St Malo and Mont St Michel and other places close by. Mark and Lynda were very helpful when needed. Can't praise the property enough, you won't be disappointed!

It is well equipped and there is a lovely shed/room outside filled with children’s toys (table football, ride ons, all sorts of ball games, a train track, and more) which kept our children entertained for hours!
