The Farmhouse is just so beautiful and for the 10 of us who stayed (three generations aged from 2 to 67), it was idyllic. The children played while the adults relaxed. Very well-appointed - I don't think that there was a thing that we needed that wasn't provided. Plenty to do and see within easy driving distance, too, and access from port at St Malo very easy. (No long, tedious trip after crossing!). Thanks Riel and Nick: we had a great holiday.
We had a lovely May half term at the farmhouse. The kitchen is equipped with pretty much every utensil you could ask for! The spa centre and barn were particular highlights for us. The children loved singing along to karaoke and playing pool in the barn - a fantastic space for all weathers. I would highly recommend a trip to the beautiful towns of Dinan and Lamballe and, if staying with children, the zoo is also well worth a visit. All in all, a beautiful, well-equipped property for all the family to enjoy.
From the moment you enter the drive, you already know you have made the right choice.
At the head of the drive is a gorgeous rustic farmhouse, to the side, large granite barns, surrouned by well groomed gardens and shelter by tall trees for privacy.
Inside...... well... it only gets better. Truely amazing open space, with a real homely feel. The decor is modern and a huge amount of attention to detail, ensuring that the character has not been lost.
Excellent place to stay with family and friends.
If you are lucky enough to stay here, you must explore the barn/bar... I won't give anymore away, but you are in for a real treat.
I stayed at this fantastic farmhouse over New Year 2016 with family and had the most wonderful time. There were 12 of us in total and the house took is all in great comfort.
We arrived on the 30th December on a cold, frosty and foggy afternoon. The driveway to the house and the drive into it is beautiful, just what I expected and wanted from a French countryside farmhouse. There is loads of parking for the cars we collected at Rennes airport and the 45 minute journey is simple enough, taking you through the local village on your way to the house.
Entering the house was exciting. We entered through the front right door and the first room we saw was the HUGE living room. It’s enormous. It houses a massive corner sofa which easily sits 12 people, a real log burning fire was already lit and was toasty warm. So cosy and fantastic, making you forget about the shivering outside weather.
The kitchen was to the left and is really modern, offering every luxury you’d want. This was a real plus point for us. Very often you stay in rented accommodation only to find it lacking it utensils and kitchen gadgets. This place has them all.
Through the hallway there is another living room which is very large with sofas and a further large flat screen TV.
There are 2 sets of wooden stairs to take you to the 1st floor, one at each end of the house. Here we found 5 double bedrooms, some with 2 double beds and en suits in.Another flight of stairs takes you to the mezzanine bedroom which is huge and has another 2 double beds. Very impressive!
The whole house is decorated lovely, keeping all the old features and exposed stonework but with modern touches throughout.
A huge surprise was back outside to the front of the house. One of the barns has been converted to a bar and games room. Housing a pool table, stocked bar, log burning fire and a mezzanine lounge. It’s truly fabulous. We spent so much time in here.
Don’t forget to go for a dip in the outside hot tub/swim spa. It’s lovely and warm and is great on cold days with a cheeky glass of fizz!
I couldn’t recommend this place enough. We are already planning our next trip.
Thanks Nick and Riel!
Don't take anything with you - the house is so well equipped, babies to octogenarians. Make full use of all the facilities - a day or half a day at the lake is not to be missed and of course, take advantage of the set menus in the local restaurants. Choose the busy ones.
