|Why this location?||We love the friendliness of the people, the beautiful Breton countryside, the quiet roads. There is so much to see in Brittany, we are just over an hour from the coast in any direction and inland there are lovely villages and cycle rides along the canals. We are also close to Josselin, Ploermel and not far from the enchanting Broceliande Forest.|

6 adults and 2 children under 2. Wonderful accommodation in a beautiful surrounding. We had a lovely week stay at The Old Farmhouse, a lot of space and found everywhere very safe for young children. Everywhere was extremely clean. The pool never really seemed to get dirty but Jenny and Phil still came over to clean it which was great. Lots of garden area and seating and a few little tikes toys for the children to play on to keep them occupied. Some of men went to play golf at a nearby golf course, we had a day out a lake which was also practical for young children. My mum also had a massage by Jenny which she thoroughly enjoyed. We’d definitely keep this place in mind for a future holiday. Thank you Jenny and Phil for everything.
Thank you for your comments. We are pleased you had a lovely time and hope to see you back some time.
The Old Farmhouse is a large, comfortable property, exactly as described in the Holiday France information. It was great for our family of 5 couples with 4 children under 5, in fact we even had a ‘spare’ bedroom. The kitchen is very well stocked with more pans, crockery, utensils etc than we could use. Excellent to have the dishwasher, washing machine & Tassimo. One of the showers broke while we were there, but it was quickly replaced the same day by the owner.
The garden was ideal for the children, they especially enjoyed the ride on toys. The adults enjoyed riding the bikes on the quiet roads. The gas bbq was excellent. The swimming pool was used every day, it’s a good size, and cleaned daily by the owners. The hot tub was a treat for the adults.
We had a lovely family week, I would be very happy to recommend to friends.
We stayed at the Old Farmhouse as a group of 10 and were very impressed with the size of the property. There was plenty of room for everyone to enjoy some peace and quiet. It was also very sociable as we could all play games, watch television and eat together. It was very well equipped with crockery, glasses etc and we found cooking a pleasure. The local store in Mohon shut for holidays whilst we were there but the drive into La Trinite to pick up bread was only 5 minutes. It was also a quick and easy route into Josselin for the supermarket. Phil and Jenny were very helpful but we did not feel like they were on top of us. They recommended a good place to eat in Taupon and we also enjoyed a meal at a small local restaurant in Brignac. The weather was a little mixed but we made use of the lovely pool and hot tub.
Overall, a very quiet location within easy driving range of many places to visit and good cycling roads. We all loved it.
Thank you for your lovely comments Jill. We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay with us at The Old Farmhouse.
The Old Farmhouse was our venue for a superb 10 day extended family holiday. Hosts Phil and Jenny were warm, welcoming and informative, attentive but not intrusive.
The accommodation is outstanding, 6 large bedrooms all ensuite which allows privacy when required, three large communal areas kitchen, lounge and bar/dining area which comfortably seat many people when eating or socialising. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, plus there are plenty of fridges and a freezer in the kitchen and bar area, which easily cope with the demands of a large family/group.
The standard of cleanliness throughout the property was outstanding, with excellent attention to detail.
The outside area has a very pleasant pool and hot tub area - fenced and locked so safe for children of all ages, 2 spacious patios ideal for a BBQ and beautifully tended gardens - again, fenced all round so very safe.
The Games room provides ample entertainment for everyone in the unlikely event of rain. Wifi available.
The local area is interesting, Josselin is a town worth visiting more than once for a stroll or to eat. Ploermel has an Activity lake with plenty going on, a 9 hole Golf Course and some lovely walks. Carnac is slightly further away but well worth a day out to visit the Megaliths and enjoy a meal at the seaside town of Trinite-sur-Mer.
A superb holiday was had by all, everyone thought the accommodation was great value for money.
We highly recommend this venue and location.
