Blavet River Cottage is very comfortable and well equipped both internally and externally. There are bikes, kayaks, fishing rods, table tennis and a small heated swimming pool, plus a summer house for visitors to use as well as a huge private garden. The cottage is less than 10 minutes walk from St Nicolas des Eaux, which has nice eating places and bars - and even a tourist information office (but no bakery unfortunately). There are also some good walks around the village and access to the Blavet River towpath, which is great for cycling in either direction. Lots of interesting places to see which are within a reasonable drive - including Pontivy, Vannes, Josselin, Auray and Carnac. We were blessed with excellent weather, so it was lovely to blend sightseeing with pottering around the village and its environs and just enjoying the situation of the cottage and the view of the river banks.

Good contact with the owners, Richard and Diana, before the holiday and a lovely welcome with local products and suggestions for places to visit and information about the visit on arrival.

We had a lovely holiday - I was very sorry to leave and would be happy to return - and can thoroughly recommend the cottage to others.

Thank you to Richard and Diana for their hospitality.

We were 4 adults and a 12 year old, there was plenty of room in the cottage and it was equipped to an excellent standard. The outside space was lovely, the barn opposite had a pool table, snooker table, ping pong table, 6 bikes (and helmets), badminton and dart board. The pool was lovely, we used it almost everyday, so nice to have a private pool. The holiday was fantastic, the village was walkable via a path through the woods, it took about 10 minutes. The Cafe bar in the village hires out bikes and boats, which we used twice, Well worth a trip down the river. We could not fault our stay in the cottage, Richard and Diana were very welcoming and lovely people, we even got to meet Buzz the dog, We would def return.

We had a lovely time at this cottage.
The setting was superb with an easy walk to the bars,restaurants and local shop.
The cottage and the barn had plenty of games and toys to keep the children occupied.
It was lovely to use the kayaks to paddle down to the village of St Nicolas and beyond.
We also used the bikes and went along the path the other side of the river and stopped at a restaurant a few miles down by a lock.
We spent time enjoying the views in the garden whilst the children played around in the pool.
We would certainly recommend the Blavet river cottage.
