About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Our recently renovated farmhouse is extremely spacious and offers home comforts throughout. Private pool. Games room. 3 doubles, 1 twin & 1 bunk. 3 bathrooms. Large family kitchen. Set in over an acre of grounds, it is tranquil & secluded. Perfect location for exploring whole of Brittany.

THE PROPERTY: This peaceful retreat is the ideal spot to relax, unwind and enjoy the unspoilt, traditional Breton countryside. With large rooms, high ceilings and plenty of light, the secluded farmhouse, dating back to 1850, is ideal for a large/extended family, families holidaying together or for those that just like a bit of extra space.

The ground floor is perfect for socialising with a large yet cosy lounge complete with original fireplace, wood burner, beamed ceiling and exposed stonework. There is FreeSat English TV, DVD player, X-box console with games, and WiFi. The high gloss fitted kitchen is extremely well equipped and comfortably seats 10 around the traditional farmhouse table. There is also one bathroom with shower downstairs.

Stairs lead up to the first floor with 2 double bedrooms both with king size beds (one with cot), a bedroom with single bunk beds and family bathroom with bath and shower over. All three bedrooms enjoy views over the grounds and countryside beyond.

The second floor has a light and airy landing with sofa - perfect for a quiet read or listening to music - double bedroom with king size bed, twin bedroom and third bathroom complete with shower.

The whole property is a harmonious blend of modern practicality and traditional features. There is even a separate laundry room attached to the property with washing machine, drying facilities, iron and ironing board ... if you have the urge to do your laundry whilst away!

The grounds are equally spacious and secluded with plenty to do for adults and children alike - all ages! With a private, fully fenced above ground pool (8m x 4m, depth 1.3m), boules pitch, large climbing frame, swings, outdoor toys for toddlers and plenty of lawn for football, badminton or a game of cricket - there's plenty to keep the whole family amused.

THE LOCATION: Quiet and peaceful. The hamlet is made up of half a dozen houses with beautiful walks along the river and in the woods nearby. However, less than a 2 minute drive away is the quiet yet friendly village of Lanrivain with its boulangerie, small grocery store, post office, cafes and restaurant. St Nicolas du Pelem is 10mins away with all its amenities including supermarket, banks, newsagent, pharmacy, restaurants, municipal pool and sports facilities and the traditional Breton towns of Rostrenen and Bourbriac and easily reached within 15mins.

LOCAL ATTRACTIONS: Less than 30mins drive away is the stunning Lake Guerledan with its pedalos, kayaking, boat trips, fishing, horse riding, small beach, cafes and restaurants. Equi-distance heading North is Guingamp with its restaurants, bars, traditional buildings with period facades, whisky distillery and lively festivals in July and August. With numerous quiet lanes in the area and the Nantes-Brest canal nearby, the area is fantastic for cycling and walking. Plenty of beautiful beaches and coves too within reasonable driving distance.

There really is something for everyone - markets are regularly held in many of the local towns and villages nearby selling fresh produce and Breton specialities. Festivals and events celebrating Breizh (Breton) culture often take place during summer months to which visitors are always welcome .

The beauty of being centrally located is that nowhere is too far. Most parts of Brittany and their key attractions are easily accessible. With a great, yet generally quiet road network, it's easy to explore the coastal areas and stunning beaches of Northern, Western and Southern Brittany as well as the larger attractions the area has to offer such as aquariums, castles, historic towns (Quintin, Dinan, Josselin, Vannes to name but a few), water and adventure parks - each one a perfect day trip.We have plenty of visitor leaflets in the property as well as a comprehensive information pack to get the most out of your stay

GETTING THERE: The port of St Malo is the closest and approx. 1hr 30mins away. The crossings to Cherbourg and Caen are quicker but the drive to the property is further (Caen 2hrs 50mins & Cherbourg 3hrs 10mins). The nearest airport is Dinard which is approx 1hr 30mins away. There are also airports in Rennes and Nantes. The tunnel is another option, however the drive from Calais is approx. 6hrs.

OTHER USEFUL INFO: We don't live close by so you won't need to worry about us popping around - however, we can be contacted via phone or email and are more than happy to help in any way we can. We also have superb help living locally who can be called upon if you have any issues or need any assistance.

Our WiFi supports functionality such as web browsing and checking emails. We aim to offer an uninterrupted service but sadly, due to factors beyond our control, occasionally reliability can be affected.

Everything in the farmhouse is set up for our visits but also with you in mind. No smoking. No pets. We should also point out that using equipment on site such as the pool, swings and games room is done so at guests' own risk. Please be kind and respectful and leave the property as you find it. If anything should get broken or damaged, please do let us know so that we can fix/replace for future visits.... or if you think of anything that we could improve, please let us know that too.

About The Owner

Passionate about France having studied French many many moons ago!

Finally decided to buy our own little hide-away in rural Brittany as it was easy to get to with two school aged boys (hoping their French will improve!) and a great central location to share with others.

Adore French food and wine. Love experiencing the traditional, laid back way of everyday French life with all it has to offer including visiting the local markets and sitting in cafes watching the world go by.

Brittany has always appealed - maybe something to do with our Celtic roots?!. There's so much to do - relaxing on beaches, walking the dramatic coastline, cycling along the canals, fishing, horse riding, exploring the historic towns and discovering wonderful bars and restaurants.
