When we arrived at Boduic House (late and very tired!) the owner was there to let us in with a warm welcome. The house was clean and was equipped with everything we needed.
Boduic is very spacious, it has three comfortable bedrooms with lovely views from the windows. The bathroom has a large shower cubicle with a good power shower. The living room is cosy - especially when the log burner is lit! The kitchen is huge with a big dining table, perfect for family meals.
Outside, there is an enclosed garden with a field next to it and trees all round and in front of the kitchen there is a patio table in a lovely sunny position.
Boduic is a very peaceful and quiet hamlet. Wonderful!
An unexpected stay at The Roost at Le Boterff was brought about by an 8 day delay in the purchase of our new French home. Long story short before we get to our review. We were leaving Plymouth for Roscoff evening of 30th October to move into our new home 31st October. Ferry and Furniture booked and we are off, a few hours before getting to Ferry Port at Plymouth great news, I don’t think an email from our French Notaries Secretary advising that our completion will be delayed till 8th November as the acting Notary is ill and a replacement needs to be found.

I then phoned Helen and Carl the owners who bent over backwards to assist in our plight. They suggested that we would be most comfortable in there recently completed studio called the Roost and subsequently booked us in for at least 8 nights with the option to review accordingly as our situation become more defined with the property in France.
Now for the actual review and thanks for your patience, arriving at Le Boterff we made our way up the stairs to The Roost, whilst the stairs are steep for the mobility impaired for ourselves, our 2 Dogs and heavy suitcases they presented no difficulty,
Upon opening the studio door what a real surprise. I have always viewed studios as compact and shall we say a little lacking in space, not so with The Roost, spacious and then some. As for being well equipped it had everything one is likely to need to for a stay whether it be for short or long term. The bed was most comfortable and large the Showeroom contained all that you need again nice and roomy with pleasant views through the Velux Window over the adjoining typical French Farmland, very peaceful.
Cooking on gas cooker was a bonus as after years of electric the heat output is so controllable, dishes saucepans a plenty meant that should you wish you can aspire to become Michelin star Chef. We enjoyed our evening meals sat at the dining table over looking said French Farmland as the even
