The cottage has a lovely garden with apple trees and shrubs. Unfortunately we lost our Hazelnut tree.

There is a large patio with steps leading up to the garden, the patio is a real sun-trap and has a large barbecue, table and chairs plus a sun canopy.

The lower wood cabin in the garden is equipped with 7 cycles: 4 adults, 2 teenagers, 1 childs (approx. age 6/7), plus 1 childs trike, small childs slide , sand-pit / paddling pool, childs see-saw rocker and a blow up kids paddling pool.

The cabin at the side of the cottage has sun loungers, garden chairs, extra table, badminton, boules, etc.

We are very lucky to have our very kind French neighbours, Henri and Agnes, whose garden runs alongside ours. We and our clients may buy fresh vegetables, potatoes and salad all at 1 euro per kilo. But best of all is 6 newly laid eggs we can also buy her homemade jam.

Local area

In Brittany there are so many places to see and explore.

There are many very interesting cycle routes around St. Gobrien, Ploermel and Josselin.

The medieval town of Josselin is 3km away so it can easily be reached by car, walking or cycling along the canal path. Josselin has a beautiful chateau which is open to the public. You will find restaurants, shops and a very attractive square with cafés and bars. Every Saturday morning there is a large market.

At Ploermel, about 15-20 minutes drive, we have the largest lake in Brittany "lac au duc" with its sandy beaches, safe swimming areas and all the watersports you could wish for and hugging one shore is a beautiful 9 hole golf course.

The beautiful city of Vannes, with its attractive harbour is a 35 minute drive. The shops and restaurants are to die for as they are in Rennes also which is a mere 45 minutes drive.

Rennes to Paris by train is 2 hours.

We also have the pretty market town of Malestroit about 20 minutes drive away. Here there are places of interest, a market twice a week and well worth a visit.

Lizio, an interesting little place 15 minutes drive away, is home to a large festival every August.
