Middle Cottage is a stone built, sympathetically renovated house which has two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs and a large sitting room with kitchen downstairs. The cottage is well-equipped and comfortable. There is a television and wireless internet is provided. The garden is south facing and you can eat your meals at the table and chairs immediately outside the cottage.
There are many lovely rural walks from the cottage and we are only half an hour from an inland lake, Lac de Guerledan, where there are watersports, restaurants and bars. The beautiful north coast of Brittany is about three quarters of an hour from Middle Cottage. There is a swimming pool in St Nicolas du Pélem, just three miles away.
The nearest village is Lanrivain which has a shop, two bars, post office and a church. St Nicolas du Pélem is three miles away and has a supermarket, garage, petrol station, banks, post office, bakers, library and information centre, medical practice etc. etc.
St André is a peaceful hamlet and would suit people trying to get away from the rat race of life. There are no nightclubs or retail therapy outlets within striking distance. St Brieuc, is the nearest large city with shops and is forty minutes from Middle Cottage.
Public transport is not available locally and a vehicle or bicycles would be necessary to enjoy the surrounding areas. Having said that, it is usually possible to arrange for transport from Guingamp station if this is required.
I have hens, ducks, goats, sheep, geese and a veggie growing area two hundred metres from the cottage, and a rabbit area in the garden. I also have three cats who roam about freely.
All bedlinen and towels are included in the price, as are tea towels, dishwasher tablets, logs for the woodburner etc. If you are planning to arrive after the shops have closed, then I can arrange for essentials like milk to be bought and waiting for you in the cottage if you let me know what you require.
Beach towels can also be provided and bicycles are available for hire from the main house.
We also have another cottage which sleeps two, Small Cottage, 207914.
Both our cottages are non-smoking inside - if you need to smoke then please go completely outside the building. There are no other rules except for consideration of others – for instance, I would not expect to be able to hear music outside the house itself. The only real rule is to enjoy your holiday in Brittany.
