Lovely house, lovely garden: antiques, cut glass, mirrors, sisal speak of the owners' love of life and entertaining. Spoiling in every way

Read guest comments

Everyone loves Kerledan, its gargoyles, its sophisticated theatrical décor, its owners' enthusiasm. Peter and Penny have made it stunningly original. Sisal and unstained oak, limed walls, the odd splash of antique mirror or gilded bergère with fake leopard skin create a mood of luxury and calm; stone-floored bathrooms are delicious, candlelit, cut-glass dinners are legendary. Sit by the great dining room fire, stroll in the lovely gardens (baroque courtyard, palisade hornbeam allée, potager), lounge in antique linen in a perfect bedroom and let yourself be pampered by your hosts: arrive as strangers, leave as friends.

  • Country Horse Racing at Penalan, Carhaix. Local farmers and trainers will be pitching up in April and May, for trotting events and races over fences. A place to see some real local colour!
  • Camellia festival at the Domaine de Trevarez in March with some 700 varieties on show and available to buy.
  • Rhododendron festival at the Domaine de Trevarez in May, with a fantastic selection flowering in the grounds for you to enjoy.
  • Open Gardens breton style the first weekend of June. Lots of big public parks but also some wonderful private spaces only open to the public this weekend.
  • Velodyssey - cycling route from Ilfracombe past our door to Hendaye in the Pyrenees.
  • Ancient Forests of Huelgoat- ideal for walking and getting back to Nature. For those who are keen on rambling, we have many tried and tested routes marked on maps for the National Park, canal and local gorges. Highly recommended.

"We spent one night in this beautifully restored mansion and wished that we could have stayed longer. Peter and Penny were very welcoming and cooked us a delicious vegetarian meal (which can be hard to find in France!!). We hope to return soon and stay for a few days."

"A really wonderful place to stay ! An old house, beautifully restored, and Penny and Peter are great hosts - and not only great hosts but Penny is an excellent cook. I'm just back from 3 days there and will certainly try very hard to go back again. One of those rare places where I really can't think of anything at all negative to say about it. But I will say 'thank you Penny and Peter, for a very memorable visit.'"

"A most relaxing and pleasurable 6 day stay for 4 of us in an ideal central location for the visiting the whole of Brittany . The bedrooms and bathrooms are very spacious and the comfortable beds vast . Large log fires in the beamed dining room and lounge were especially welcome on less warm days . Aperitifs served either outside or in the homely lounge were a perfect start to lovely meals prepared each evening by Penny. Peter and Penny were perfect hosts and made us feel most welcome .Overall we would highly recommend a stay in this lovingly renovated Manor house. "

"Surrounded by beautiful grounds, this superb Manoir has been renovated to the highest level. Stunning decor reflecting the owners personal aim to meet a very high standard for themselves and their guests. Peter & Penny, the perfect hosts. Home grown food and local produce dining is a lovely experience as Penny prepares and Peter serves the food. Certainly a very special place to stay. Plenty of local places of interest and sightseeing tours in the area."

"Wow - what a fantastic place. We were completely overwhelmed by the warmth and enthusiasm of Peter and Penny. The accommodation was outstanding as was the breakfast. We had dinner on two nights which were absolutely fantastic. The decor was inspiring and the gardens amazing. We were made to feel very welcome and had a great time."

"We stayed for three nights during a two week re-exploration of Brittany. We liked all of Kerledan; from the warmth of greeting, the generous hospitality, the help with planning walks in the area, to the delicious food and welcome company. We think that Peter and Penny have got this just right. It would be very difficult for anyone to disagree."
May 2011
"Thank you Penny and Peter for a wonderful stay. The house and gardens were beautiful, and we even managed a game of croquet. Penny and Peter are the perfect hosts, discreet but there when you need them. Penny's food is exquisite and dinner in the dining room with the other guests was very enjoyable. We can't wait to come back. The Clark Family"
