Equestrian centre in Plemet.
Loudeac has a swimming pool, cinema, beautiful park and forest with amazing walks and cycle paths. There are several restaurants, a huge shopping complex and a racecourse. All just 15 minutes away.
The beautiful park has a number of lakes to wander around. If you are travelling with a pet there are several local vets. The nearby Loudéac forest has walks, cycle tracks and picturesque picnic areas. We would highly recommend Aquarev park in Loudéac where there is lots to do such as cycling, children's play areas, picnics, fishing and barbecue area. There is a reading area alongside the beautiful lake or simply go for a relaxing stroll. You may be lucky and see local wildlife such as the brown hare as we did. This is a venue for many local events.

We enjoyed a lovely tranquil stay at the cottage with our 2 small dogs. The cottage was very well equipped and maintained and it was lovely and comfy. The bed was perfect and the pillow choice was great.

We ate in every day as our dogs are not good in restaurants and the lovely patio had sun on it all day so lovely to dine outside.

Lee was great with all communications and answering any queries we had and we would like to extend our thanks to both Lee and Jo for allowing us to share their super hide away in Britanny. We would recommend this location for couples with or without pets who want a lovely base to explore from or a peaceful rest away from the madding crowd.
