It has been furnished and equipped to a high standard and provides an ideal location for a family holiday.The cottage has a comfortable lounge/dining room featuring a magnificent granite fireplace with log stove, a well equipped kitchen and shower room on the ground floor .The master bedroom is a large,beautiful sunlit room built into the roof to retain the king-post construction. It has a small mezzanine floor (useful for an extra mattress if required) and an ancient armoire- front amongst many features.The 2 other bedrooms are light and airy; the larger, equipped with two single beds, has a large lucarne window facing the front drive and garden whilst the other, with bunk beds, has a velux window overlooking the cherry orchard.Although attached to the main house, the cottage has its own completely separate and private entrance.

.For local amenities Bodion is approximately 15 mins from the historic town of Pontivy where you will find supermarkets, restaurants and shops. Plumeliau, a 5 minute drive, is our local village; a friendly place to buy bread and croissants St Nicholas des Eaux (15 mins), a charming village on the Blavet River, offers two restaurants, creperies and bars as well as river cruises and kayaking.
There is also a an adventure park for all the family with go-carts and animals.
The children will love tree climbing at the Adventure Forest near Camors and beaches are within 40 minutes drive.
These, with the chateaux, museums, restaurants and a steady passage of pardons, fetes and fest noz, will, we think, ensure a varied and enjoyable holiday for all the family.
