The Experience

A 17th-century presbytery flanked by two houses: a retreat of gîtes at the end of the drive. Not only are the gîtes beautiful and the detailing second to none but the hosts are hospitable, professional and unfailingly generous. Aided by a black cat and a springer spaniel (bring your dog if you want it to be spoiled), Ben and David have created a place of serenity and charm.

The Priory, dating from 1640, oozes history and spreads itself over three floors, with a French hunting lodge of a sitting room, a dining room that seats eight and a fabulous kitchen opening to the garden. The Granary is a family cottage for six; the Hayloft and Stable are boltholes for two, both single storey, the latter a B&B studio. Everyone has private outdoor space and bikes are available for exploring the wonderful countryside around you.

Find Breton cider, local honey, jam, fresh baguettes and apple juice waiting for you in these bucolic hideaways.

Reviews

We stayed at The Priory for 8 nights in early May - 4 adults, a 3 & 1 year old plus labrador. Ben & David's gite was perfect in every way and gave us a very comfortable base for lazy mornings before we went off exploring in the afternoons. This gite is a stunning building, superbly equipped and beautifully decorated. Needless to say but It was spotlessly clean. We loved the extra treats on arrival - local products such as honey, cider and apple juice. The activities room in a separate building a great bonus if you have older kids in tow! A fabulous place to stay.

Andrea, Bath

This property is just stunning, immaculately kept with attention to detail. Comfortable, tasteful and in a beautiful location. We'll done Ben and David! Keep up the good work! Highly recommended.

Mercedes, Shrewsbury

Kergudon calls to anyone who appreciates the tranquillity of authentic Brittany, its history, luscious landscapes and wide open skies. It's a perfect spot for unwinding thanks to the thoughtful touches from Ben and David, who have created individual, cosy retreats with decor that combines discreet elegance and practical comforts. A wonderful rural retreat just 45 minutes from Roscoff and Brest.

Annaliza, Sawday's Inspector

Granary is a wonderfully well-equipped gite - we easily managed to host a kitchen supper for 3 of us and 3 guests. Great facilities on site - a games room, wellies, bikes and, for those more energetic than ourselves, you can even book a session in the gym with the resident personal trainer (one of the owners!). Outside the location in the Parc Amorique is ideal for walkers and there are beaches not far away for the summer visitors.

Helen, Dover, Kent

It is always a joy to be in this wonderful place, an oasis of peace, surrounded by picturesque places. And the hosts, two wonderful souls, who take care of everything and anything, so that the stay will be a dream. Congratulations for your work and full success in the future.

Gabriel, MORLAIX

We stayed at The Priory - an amazing property with so much character, so well appointed. They have thought of everything to make your stay incredibly comfortable - even an organic bakery in walking distance! Location, location.... brilliant -The heart of the Parc D'Amorique. Authentic rural France. Not touristy. Spectacular scenery and so varied. Great walking /touring. Visit Huelgoat unique granite landscape; Guerlesquin market town; local lake Dennec; Sizun, several walks around Le Relecq Abbey. Coast is easily accessible- Crozon peninsula and Le Conquet far West point a 70 minute drive.

Lynne, Fishguard

Hayloft was the perfect, tranquil bolt hole in the Finistere area. The accommodation is compact and well thought-out, and a large peaceful garden is great for al fresco meals, or just relaxation on returning from exploring the pretty nearby beaches.

Rachel, Chester

Another wonderful week at Kergudon Gites. This year we stayed in the Priory. Autumn at it's best. Great local walks, cycle rides and beaches followed by cosy suppers by the fire. It's always a treat to stay here - relaxed luxury - and this year was no different! Highly recommend if you fancy getting away from it all but with all the home from home comforts.

Nicola, Farnham, Surrey

Fantastic holiday, couldn’t have been better looked after. The accommodation was lovely and met all of our needs and we had a great time exploring the area. Definitely going to visit again as soon as we can!

Cassandra, Oxford

From the moment we arrived, until we left, we were made to feel welcome by Ben and Dave. Nothing was too much trouble. The gite was beautifully decorated and very comfortable with many thoughtful touches. Bed linen, towels and soft furnishings added a touch of luxury. It was so peaceful with beautiful gardens and interesting places to visit nearby including the lake which was ideal for walking. The coast is within easy reach. We did eat out on a couple of occasions but the kitchen was so well equipped it was enjoyable relaxing back at the gite after sightseeing. We will definitely be back!

Maggie and Cliff, Oxford

The properties at Kergudon are beautifully decorated & fitted with everything you could need for a relaxing stay. Ben & Dave are wonderful hosts, they are very helpful with suggestions of where to visit & restarants to try. Dave is a fanatastic cook & the meals you can preorder from him are superb. Highly recommended

Chris, Littlebourne

The month we spent at Kergudon Gîtes in St. Cadou, Bretagne absolutely flew by! We explored a new site each day and found the gîte to be so perfectly located for our adventures. We were so well taken care of by David and Ben who have the tidiest rental properties and the loveliest of gardens. They are very approachable and are willing to answer questions and offer suggestions, but they offer guests the privacy they need. You will be spoiled by the comfort and by the simple luxury in the gîte, and you will notice and appreciate the attention to details. And be sure to order a David dinner!

Judith, Minneapolis, MN

We had a truly peaceful and relaxing holiday staying in Hayloft, a little jewel of a gite with lots of thoughtful touches to delight. Ben and David are lovely hosts, full of information on local things to do. We have seldom slept better and went to so many interesting places.

Clare, Devon

This realy is 5 star accommodation and customer service. We stayed 1 week at the Hayloft with our 2 dogs and couldn't fault our stay, it was perfect. Took the option of a meal and it was brilliant don't miss it. Lots of suitable places to visit in the area advised by the owners who made us feel very welcome, we will return when travelling in France, its worth it.

Location

The neighbourhood

You're on the outskirts of tiny Saint-Cadou in the heart of the Parc Naturel d'Armorique for sublime walks and cycles. There is a little bar in the village, a two-minute walk, which serves food, otherwise Saint-Rivoal has a good selection of restaurants from Easter to September. Sizun has lots of places to eat and drink. Drennec lake is nearby for paddle boarding, kayaking and sandy lake beaches.

Local points of interest from Ben Dickins

  • Kergudon Gîtes are sited in the heart of the Monts D'Arrée in a natural park. As such you are spoiled for choice for walking, cycling or horse-riding routes in stunning scenery including the highest points of Brittany with their breath-taking views.
  • Equidistant from the north, west and south coasts of Brittany, each with their own character and charm, you can choose from long sandy beaches of the Crozon peninsular, the Pink Granite coast to the north or rockier inlets and estuaries of the south.
  • We are 2 kms from the beautiful Lac du Drennec, one of the best fly fishing lakes in France, there is a water sports centre where you can hire kayaks and paddle boards or just enjoy lunch at the fabulous Au Lac bistro overlooking the lake.
  • We are spoiled for interesting villages, towns and cities within easy reach. Brest and Quimper being the largest north and south respectively for those who need an escape from rural Finistere with Locronan, Morlaix, Huelgoat and many others worth a visit.
  • If food's your motivation we're within easy reach of many excellent restaurants, the very traditional Breton creperies and many weekly markets to buy fabulous produce to create your own meals.
  • While a small, rural village St Cadou is surprisingly active for a village of its size boasting a lively dog-friendly pub, boulangerie and active Comité des Fêtes. If you're here when one of the many Fest Noz take place its definitely worth attending!
