About Beth Cook
Hello, I am the owner of Old Glebe and Les Bosses. I live and work in London but plan to spend my retirement in the countryside, hence having these two lovely houses which I dont have enough time to enjoy. My houses are personal properties and are very different. Les Bosses, is a charming simple cottage set in very peaceful rural Brittany. Old Glebe is perfect for large family parties and only an hour from London. I hope you enjoy your holiday, I am always very happy in both places and delighted to share them with you! Laura
Beth Cook purchased this Cottage in 1990
Why Beth Cook chose Hénon
I bought Les Bosses a long time ago when I was working in Brittany. I love rural France and the fact it is a short drive to the most stunning white sandy beaches. Getting there is so easy from St Malo or Roscoff via Brittany Ferries, or a 6 hours drive from the Channel tunnel.
What makes this Cottage unique
Too many to list - but the main thing about Les Bosses is the fact that this area of Brittany is totally unspoilt, there are incredibly clear skies on a clear night and you can walk in any direction along pretty lanes. Within 90 minutes drive you can reach most of Brittany's main sites if you want to travel or you can spend a week sitting on the terrace enjoying the rural peace and quiet.

A relaxing fun holiday for all the family!
When I retired in 2016 I decided to treat my children, grandchildren and myself to a holiday. I chose Les Bosses near Henon, a great chose! My daughter and myself were there for 4 weeks, while the other families came for a week at a time. We reached 10 at times, the children from 3 to 16 years.
The property is delightful, such a peaceful place with neighbours who were very 'sampathique'. We cooked many meals for large groups and coped well in the kitchen.
Some days were spent on outings to St. Malo, Mont St Michel and gorgeous Dinan, but we also stayed at home very happily. All the children had a great time, playing in the garden, walking and running in the woods and lake nearby. Unfortunately there is no swimming in the lake and the nearest pool was closed for renovations. A few super playgrounds within easy driving distance. The weather wasn't great while we were there so there was only one trip to the sea( further away than we expected). The extra touches were towels supplied and very good quality bed-ware. The house is furnished with a bit of panache which made it very pleasant to spend time in.
My daughter (vegetarian) and I had a wonderful meal in nearby Moncontour at 'Le Chaudron Magique' the evening before they closed for their 2 weeks holiday! (Be aware a lot of places close for the last 2 weeks in June)
The house was in excellent condition and the grass cut while we were there. A barbecue in situ would be an advantage.
We loved this place and enjoyed our time there immensely.
Beautiful rural spot. Glorious beach 1hr
The house and garden are perfect for a young family, with a games cupboard, lots of beds and cots, walled garden and patio, table tennis and slide/swing set.
The beaches up towards cap d'frehel had rock pools, waves for bodyboarding and sand for making castles.
Nearby Moncontour has a medieval festival which was a real experience!
The owner was very helpful.
Charmant cottage dans la campagne bretonne
Cottage situé dans un environnement champêtre, au calme.
Pièce à vivre lumineuse et agréable.
Attention, aucun réseau de tel portable, si vous devez travailler à distance cela peut s’avérer compliqué.
Ideal para desconectar y descansar
Ubicación ideal, casa estupenda y muy confortable, que nos permitió una estancia genial. La valla del jardín un poco baja y con algún hueco por la parte inferior no nos permitía dejar del todo suelto a uno de nuestros perros, pero aún así ellos también disfrutaron muchísimo.
Una buena elección para desconectar y disfrutar de la maravillosa Bretaña.
retour aux sources garanti !!!
Que de beaux souvenirs pour nous que cette semaine en famille à Hénon !
Un cadre rural extrêmement paisible, une demeure à la fois authentique et à la décor moderne très travaillée, un accès somme toute rapide ( 15 à 20 min ) à toutes les commodités : bref, un petit havre de paix, hors du flux du quotidien, dans lequel se ressourcer semble être le leitmotiv.
Balades dans la campagne bretonne, soirée aux coins du feu, déconnectez vos portables et évadez vous !
Nous y reviendrons avec plaisir !!!
Merci encore à Beth et Laura !
Special interest holidays:
The local villages of Henon and Ploeuc-sur-Lié have all the necessary amenities, from tennis courts to supermarkets, and are just 2 miles away. The stunning mediaeval hill fortress town of Moncontour is 7 miles away and provides an ideal place to eat out or sit in the 10th century church square watching the world go by. It is remarkably UN-touristy.
Medieval Festivals are ubiquitous and well worth the effort.
Nearest beaches are about 30 - 45 minutes away but there are also lakes nearby with sandy beach areas.
Saint Malo or Roscoff with Brittany Ferries are the best way to arrive. Leaving we suggest you take a day sailing from Caen - which means you get back to UK around lunchtime. Its an early start but worth it the other end.
Nearest little village for your morning croissant and baguette - 2 miles.
Nearest market town (market day Wednesday) - 3 miles.
Lovely walled Medieval citadel for suppers in the square - 6 miles.
City with all the shops you need - 16 miles.
This is a family home not a business. You are welcome to borrow toys and other items such as fancy dress for the local Medieval Festivals (there are plenty). We are not precious but if you break something please replace it.
Tennis in Ploeuc, Water Skiing at Guerledan, Sailing at Pleneuf - all easy to reach.
