We have renovated a cob and stone barn into comfortable accommodation for two, using original techniques and materials sympathetic to the original building, such as earth plaster, locally handmade kitchen tiles and solid wood floors. This building provides private accommodation, independent from our own home and the other gîte.
A large entrance hall leads up the stairs to the accommodation, all on the first floor. An arch at the far end opens into the bedroom. For a good night's sleep, the orthopaedic, pocket-sprung, zip link bed can be configured as a king-size or two singles, as you wish. There is a table and two chairs under one window, a kitchen area next to that and a comfortable sofa and armchair with footstool in front of a wood stove, logs supplied for free. At the other end of the building is a shower room, with toilet.
A few short strides from the front door takes you to your own private garden including a shelter with table and chairs. You can also wander around our 3-acre smallholding with its free-range chickens, runner ducks in the veg patch, small flock of Breton sheep, bee hives and, during the summer, a pair of pigs. A little further afield, you can explore our 11 acre woodland.
We have freshly-laid eggs, homemade sausages, mixed salads and handmade soap available to buy. We offer short courses: sausage-making and soap making being the most popular. Please note that the cottage is not suitable for children or pets, and smoking is not permitted inside the gite.
