Local Restaurants

If you don't want to eat 'in' or bbq in the garden, there is plenty of choice, when eating out. Dinan has loads of lovely restaurants and cafes. Try 'La Terrasse' in the old Port. Also highly recommended are:- 'La Vieille Auberge' in Trefumel. The proprietor is a lovely lady, who speaks very good English, if you get stuck with your French! The food and the service are superb. 'Le Relais de La Rance' at Quedillac is also worth a visit. Haute cuisine!

What To Do

This is a wonderful area to explore. The cottage is approx 30 mins drive to the coast, where there is an abundance of sandy beaches - St Cast has 7! Dinard, Erquy, Val-Andre, Cap Frehel and Fort La Latte, St Malo old town and Mont St Michel are well worth visiting. The North Breton coastline is beautiful, with rugged cliffs and sandy bays - wonderful for walking or just lazing in the sun. In summer, there are lots of childrens beach clubs for supervised activities, so parents can have some time off too! There are also lots of very lovely walks along the River Rance and the Canal - try Evran and Treverien. For other local activities such as :- markets and shopping (shoe supermarkets at Quevert are great - really cheap but good quality); chateaux and gardens; boat trips; aquariums; galleries and museums (car museum at Loheac is superb!) - see the many brochures on file at the cottage. There is something to interest everyone.

We loved our stay at Hedgehog Cottage so much that we decided not to go home but to stay on for another week so all in all a wonderful month was spent in the most delightful of houses in the most idyllic of locations. Hedgehog cottage is full of charm and is so well equipped providing everything that is needed for the perfect holiday regardless of the weather. There is so much space inside and this is only bettered by the terrific garden and orchard. What could be better than watching the sunrise or sunset listening to the wildlife and just being? The location is fantastic quiet and away from everything - but only a few minutes in the car and you are on a main road which will take you exploring a fabulous part of Brittany which has something for everyone. Hedgehog Cottage really is a little piece of paradise in what is truly a beautiful part of the world and all we can say on our return is "when can we go back?".

We enjoyed our stay at hedgehog cottage. Nice comfy sofas and everything you need. All the appliances worked very well and the house was clean when we arrived.. Very quiet but handy for the main road.

We had a great time on our stay at Hedgehog Cottage. The house was clean, well equipped and provided everything we expected from a country retreat. We particularly enjoyed visiting the local town Dinan where we did some sightseeing, relaxing by the river, and eating in the restaurants. Other things we enjoyed were lunches in the garden, and coastal drives up to St Malo - which was not too far from the cottage.

We will be definitely recommending Hedgehog Cottage to friends and family. We plan to return with friends towards the end of the year.

We had a great family holiday at hedghog cottage. Our children absolutely loved the massive orchard which was attached - plenty room to play safely. The house had everything we needed - it was a real bonus to have a washing machine. It's situated in a lovely quiet area, but within a short drive of lots of beaches - and nearby Cobac park was also a hit for the children. Great value cottage which we would highly recommended.
