Information about any additional facilities

This is a great place if you like an abundance of fauna and flora. We have seen deer, badgers, foxes, buzzards, owls and woodpeckers. There are many ancient pollarded trees most are smothered in an array of mosses, lichens and ferns. With zero light pollution it's also a great place for a spot of star gazing. If you are a keen photographer the opportunities are endless. There maybe the opportunity to try your hand at some woodland management activities or dry stonewalling.

The Owner Recommends

Food and Drink

You really are spoilt for choice but an excellent value meal (£10 including 3 courses and wine!) can be enjoyed at the Chez Marie-The in Ploerdut. For a fine dining experience in a stunning setting try the Les Jardins de l'Abbaye next to the Abbaye de Bon Repos. If you like cider the local cidreries are a must. As mentioned above fresh supplies can be found at the local markets or the local supermarket. There are also restaurants, a convenience store and a boulangerie at Inguiniel just 2.5 miles away.

Heated pool + 30 Acres of Grounds: Lawns, Meadow, Woodland and a Stream.

Relax or play anywhere in the grounds, there's more than enough space for everyone. Anybody with a keen interest in nature and or photography can spend days relaxing, listening and watching. Having a bbq with your neighbours is a great way to meet new people. With zero light pollution and a clear sky stargazing is a must.

Horse Riding

There are many equestrian centres in the Morbihan. It is an ideal place for horse riding and trekking. The equivalent of the National Stud is based at Hennebont. The Parc Aquanature near Priziac, west of Pontivy. Where there are 15 kilometres of footpaths, a deer park, freshwater aquarium, accompanied horse rides and guided tours.

The Nantes-Brest Canal, Lac de Guerledan and River Blavet

These waterways and their surroundings offer lots of opportunities from watersports at Lac de Guerledan, to cycling or walking along the miles of towpaths. Excellent coarse fishing can be found on the river Blavet - there will be many personal recommendations...

The South Coast of Morbihan

Explore the South coast: Lorient and it's beaches are half an hours drive. Le Poldu is a lot quieter and has stunning scenery, there's mile after mile of sandy beaches and coves to explore. Our favourites include St Cado, Le Poludu, Doelan, Guidel Plage and Fort Bloque.

Traditional French Markets

There are a plethora to choose from but Hennebont is the largest, Vannes and Potivy also have large markets but the local markets of Guemene sur Scorff and Bubry are also interesting to stroll around.

Visiting Medieval Towns and Cities

Vannes, Hennebont, Potivy and even our local town of Guemene sur Scorff are still partially walled. The finest example is Vannes with its 13th century ramparts from which you get a fine view of the old town and gardens.
