Information about any additional facilities

These are just a few of our guests very kind comments about their stay at our cottage.

We had a fantastic stay! If we could give it 10 stars we would!
Andrew and Marina were perfect hosts and went above and beyond to provide everything to make the holiday perfect. Tracy & family 2017

My husband and I stayed here for 9 days. It's an absolutely stunning property and the owners have thought of everything you can possibly need. The grounds are lovely and lovingly maintained. The location is so peaceful, surrounded by fields. The only noise is the sound of birds! The tempur mattress in the main bedroom is so comfortable and guarantees you a good night's sleep. The owners are lovely and are close by should you need anything. Whilst it is a rural location, Pontivy is only a short drive away which has plenty of good restaurants to chose from. This really is a 5* property and exceptionally good value for money. We are likely to be back!! Thank you so much. T Holmes 2017

If you like bike riding then bikes and electric bikes are for hire too to explore along the winding river Blavet around the village. What better than to take a stroll on a sunny afternoon and visit the local Bretagne creperie. They are delicious.

Open every day, so have a really good day out with the family and let the imagination have some fun.

We have just come back from a fabulous stay in this wonderful property. Coët Coët Niel is a beautiful property in a lovely location. Marina and Andrew have really thought of everything, from the extensive welcome pack to the children’s toys - also the ittle chocolate on their bed was a lovely touch! The pool is amazing, thank you to Andrew for setting it up each morning! There lots to see and do in Brittany and the cottage is perfectly located. We enjoyed going to the beautiful coast of Carnac, with its calm clean waters it is perfect for the children. Thank you once again to Marina and Andrew
