9.7 / 10 Fay 28 August, 2016

Absolutely lovely cottage. We were a family group of myself and my partner and kids aged 13, 11 and twins aged 9 and my dad..

We really enjoyed the rural location, it is incredibly peaceful and tranquil without hordes of holiday makers but within easy drive of any of the more popular tourist sites such as Carnac and Quiberon. In fact despite plans to do more of day trips we mostly stayed around the cottage as it was so nice! There are bikes in the shed to rent and lots of local lanes and tracks barely used by vehicles so we had several bike rides.

There is a lot of 'living' space which is great when you have a large family who all want to be doing different things - a large kitchen, dining room and very large lounge and that's not including the outdoor space - we ate out in the garden most evenings and had several BBQs. It also has English TV channels which made everyone happy during the Olympics. It was clean and well appointed and the large garden was great for sitting out and playing boules. Only slight downside was lack of internet but this is in hand and Roger is waiting for a cable to be put in.

There are only 3 bedrooms but these are all large and spacious - the kids for example had the entire attic space to themselves with a double bed and 3 single beds as well as toys.!

Roger the owner was lovely, very quick to respond to any emails and super helpful. We'd definitely like to go back again next year.

Owner response

We are most gratified to receive Fay's comprehensive review and very pleased that Fay and her large family had a satisfying holiday. It goes without saying that they would all be most welcome to take a further holiday with us on a future occasion.
