Why Philip Pearsall chose Mohon

We bought this property because we have holidayed extensively in France for the last 25 years and love the peace and tranquillity of the local rural area and the friendliness of the Breton people. We fell in love with the Farmhouse, with its' beamed ceilings, character and charm, offering ourselves and our guests extensive accommodation and large garden areas to relax in.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We fell in love with the character and the ambiance of the property and the surrounding countryside when we first viewed it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our extended family - all three generations of it- absolutely loved The Old Famrhouse. It was pretty cold when we got there so we had the heaters running most evenings, but the wood burner in the living room was lovely (and we didn't have to pay extra like some other properties we looked at). The games room got plenty of use, as did the bar and pool table (which is bigger than the one pictured). The hot tub was ready when we got there.

The owners - Phil and Jenny are both lovely, friendly and approachable. They explained how to use everything and gave us lots of advice before and during our stay regarding shopping (ie. Everything is closed on sundays), days out etc. There was plenty of space for the ten of us without it feeling too big, and I imagine it would be fine with twice as many.

All rooms are en-suite which was great, and we had no problems with plumbing (such as a previous reviewer had). We had a couple of powercuts when we had lots of electric heaters running at the same time as the washing machine, but the owners sorted it out straight away.

Wifi was only available in the games room, which is locked at night so as not to disturb anyone, however this was not a problem for us. (I had no problem using my mobile network out there.) Though the owners' accomodation was above the games room and next to some of our rooms, the walls are plenty thick enough and the close proximity did not affect our privacy.

Due to nature of the house, the stairs leading up to some of the bedrooms were quite steep and narrow, and one set wasn't particularly even. This didn't cause us too many problems, however they might be more difficult for those with mobility problems or children. The trick is to take them slowly and not be holding two suitcases!

I treated myself to a massage and that too was lovely, as well as a fraction of the price I'd pay back home!

This house was fantastic value for money, and it is easy to get to the most popular places to visit from Mohon. I would strongly recommend this house to friends and family!

Good accommodation and facilities for a party of 15 (9 adults and 6 children)

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely holiday at The Old Farmhouse. The layout of the house works well for multiple families and there is plenty of space to play outside and inside with the games room, bar area, gardens and paddocks. The house is well equipped- we found it easy to eat in and enjoyed making use of the BBQ when the weather allowed! Unfortunately the very British weather meant the pool was very cold and with children ranging from 18 months to 6 years old we didn’t manage to use it as much as we would like. The adults made good use of the hot tub but were a little confused about whether the kids could use it as it said no under 14s but in the guest book others had referenced children using it. Finally the WiFi was poor- I think this could be marketed more clearly as it states WiFi but in today’s world where the children and adults rely on it, it would be good to have full access to the internet rather than just in the games room which wasn’t always practical. As I’ve mentioned this could just be made clearer upon booking. All in all a nice property that might benefit from pool heating and WiFi to encourage future visits.

Highly recommended, ticks all the boxes

  • 5 of 5

The Old Farmhouse was our venue for a superb 10 day extended family holiday. Hosts Phil and Jenny were warm, welcoming and informative, attentive but not intrusive.

The accommodation is outstanding, 6 large bedrooms all ensuite which allows privacy when required, three large communal areas kitchen, lounge and bar/dining area which comfortably seat a large number of people when eating or socialising. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, plus there are plenty of fridges and a freezer in the kitchen and bar area, which easily cope with the demands of a large family/group.

The standard of cleanliness throughout the property was outstanding, with excellent attention to detail.

The outside area has a very pleasant pool and hot tub area - fenced and locked so safe for children of all ages, 2 spacious patios ideal for a BBQ and beautifully tended gardens - again, fenced all round so very safe.

The Games room provides ample entertainment for everyone in the unlikely event of rain. Wifi available if required.

The local area is interesting, Josselin is a town worth visiting more than once for a stroll or to eat. Ploermel has an Activity lake with plenty going on. Carnac is slightly further away but well worth a day out to visit the Megaliths and enjoy a meal at nthe seaside town of Trinite-sur-Mer.

A superb holiday was had by all, everyone thought the accommodation was great value for money.

Maison très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Passé un très bon weekend entre amis chez Philip et Jenny. Une maison agréable, propre, spacieuse et bien équipé. 6 chambres avec salle de bain, le top! Une cuisine bien équipé, un bar chaleureux! Et la cerise sur le gâteau, c'était le jacuzzi, juste génial, dommage nous n'avons pas pu profiter de la piscine, nous sommes au mois d'octobre quand même et en Bretagne!! Merci pour votre accueil et peut être à bientôt. Je recommande cette location. Aurélie

An absolute gem in the heart of rural Brittany

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful old farm house in a stunning location. Fantastic amenities from the ensuite rooms to the swimming pool and hot tub. The best part of my stay though was undoubtedly the friendliness and hospitality of Jenny and Phil. I would return to stay here again in a heartbeat!

An amazing gem of a place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a large group of people (13) and The Old Farmhouse was just amazing. Every room has an en suite bathroom, there is loads of space if you want down time. Outside the pool and hot tub were lovely and kept the children amused for ages. There was also bikes to use and a games room.

Jenny and Phil were wonderful hosts very helpful and easy to talk to and give advice on places to go and things to do!!! Can't wait to go back again!!!

Throughly recommended!!!
