Visitor suitability

Pen at Voas suits all ages and is set in a very peaceful and quiet environment. The local area offers a wide variety of entertainment and it is up to you as our guests to do as much or as little as you chose to.

In 2017 we have had families with young children, families with teenagers, young and more mature couples. Everyone has found activities to suit them from touring brocantes and boot sales to days spent on the numerous local beaches sunbathing or collecting cockles to bowling and paintballing or walking the many "randonee" routes.

We do not have specific disabled access and our courtyard is laid to gravel making wheelchair access very difficult. We do have ground floor toilets and shower rooms and can organise ground floor sleeping arrangements should they be required.

Jon and Lianne were very welcoming hosts.
They have thought of every detail to ensure your stay with them is as comfortable as possible.

Honeysuckle is very small and very cosy .
The garden which is a shared space with other guests, has been very lovingly tended.

For us , this was a perfect rural retreat .
Plestin , the nearest village has everything you need !
An amazing poissonerie , fantastic patisserie, and excellent Chaucuterie .

We spent our week in Lavender instead of Honeysuckle at the suggestion of the owner. It is a Traditional Breton farm house. Very homely,comfortable and spotlessly clean. The Gite is equiped with everything you could want on holiday. The games room was fun, the Wi Fi useful and the grounds well maintained, pretty and relaxing.
The owners were very kind and knowlegable about the area.
We were very happy walking in the surrounding countryside, visiting local villages,towns and coastal resorts.
