Pink Granite coast is a must see and you are only an hour’s drive (69km). It offers beautiful scenery, thanks to its waters, islands, wildlife and flora. But above all, the coast is characterised by its granitic chaos, with its pink shades and shapes that appeal to the imagination. You can walk along the coastal paths to take in the sites of the pink boulders.
Carhaix is only a 15 minutes’ drive away and has a swimming baths with an outdoors water park, adventure park with zip wiring, golf, paint balling and a maze to explore. Carhaix has lots of restaurants, shops, supermarkets and their market day is on a Saturday and this is well worth a visit to buy your local produce.

Huelgoat is a mystical town with lots to explore such as the forest at ‘Foret de Huelgoat’ which is famous for its huge boulders to explore.
In the center you will find a stunning lake with various water activities to enjoy with the nearby enchanting Forests to walk through with areas for picnics in a tranquil setting.
Market day is on a Thursday morning and well worth a visit for local produce and artifacts. From ‘The Shed’ it is only 1.5 km to the center of Huelgoat and this takes about 20 minutes to walk.
Some other tourist attractions nearby are The Valley of the Saints are worth a visit.
For those that like the outdoors there are the beautiful sandy beaches on the coast line of Armorique Natural Regional Park and it is only 39km away (40 mins drive) surrounded by restaurants serving mussels, oysters and other culinary delights! You are only 30km away from Morlaix with lots of shops, restaurants, bars, cinemas, and bowling.
Other places to explore further afield are the beautiful medieval French town of Quimper with lots of excellent restaurants and shopping to buy local products. Concarneau is a very popular place to go and visit on an evening you could have a meal inside the medieval French walled city next to the sea. If you like Château’s there is lots to go and see such as Château de Trévarez drawing you into the charm of the local culture.
The Shed is situated in a lovely, peaceful and relaxing location,with a great well-equipped kitchen - everything you could possibly want has been thought of and the accommodation was spotlessly clean. The welcome pack on arrival was excellent, again, thoughtfully put together to start us off for the holiday. We would have no hesitation in recommending The Shed to anyone who wants the peace and quiet of the countryside but is within easy walking distance of the town, with a good range of shops and restaurants to hand. The local walks are interesting and highly recommended and if you want to travel out by car to explore, we would suggest a trip to the Valley of the Saints, Morlaix and Chateuneuf de Faou to name but a few. A drive to the coast is also recommended as there are some gorgeous beaches which were not over populated, with white sands and lovely bays.
Thank you so much for your lovely review!
I am so happy you had a wonderful holiday!!!
Lovely property in a good location with great views.
Plenty of places to eat in town, particularly Hotel du Lac. A lively town square with lots of small shops and two boulangeries and a Thursday market. The Chaos is stunning.
Thank you for your review and we are really happy you enjoyed your stay.
