The
Experience

Everyone loves Kerlédan – its gargoyles, its décor, its theatrical flourishes, and its hosts’ love of life. Peter and Penny have resurrected a 15th-century manor in lush Finistère and created a haven. Wander the orchards, admire the topiary and smell the roses.

After a day spent in the enchanting forest of Huelgoat (clambering over boulders, swimming in the lake), you are greeted with aperitifs as the sun goes down, and candlelit dinner with guests by the fire. Penny’s cooking includes produce from the potager, and the atmosphere is informal and warm.

Wake to birdsong and breakfast and set off for Carhaix, the old Roman capital of Brittany. It’s a 15-minute stroll.

Reviews

This must surely have been one of the most enjoyable b&b's we have ever visited. Penny an Peter made us feel so welcome. It was heartwarming! If you plan on going to Brittany, this is the place to stay. And don't forget to eat in. Penny is a great coock and for what she charges you, you can't even go to a restaurant. Besides, the wines on the list are also not to be forgotten! Mmmm, the "flying pig" ... :) Peter and Peny, thanks for everything. Kris & Ann

Kris, Antwerp

Absolutely top notch! Peter & Penny have made something very special at Kerledan - from the warm welcome, comfortable rooms and personal touches to the wonderfully fresh, creative and delicious dinner menus. We stayed 6 nights with friends in July and hope to be back soon - so much to see and do in the area and such a special place to stay.

The manoir was beautifully restored very tastefully, the bed with its cotton sheets and down duvet and pillows was a luxury. The garden had lots of interesting inner gardens and box topiary. Penny gave us delicious meals on both nights and served us with other multinational guests.The breakfasts were even more amazing with everything you could possibly want. Peter kindly printed off maps and gave us instructions for 2 excellent walks, one from the manoir along the nearby path and canal. They made us feel most welcome - I would thoroughly recommend it as a special place to stay.

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.'

Brian

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.

we spent two nights at this lovely Manoir. Very comfortable, rooms lovely. Excellent dinners and breakfast. not to be missed.

Helen

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.

Location

The neighbourhood

On the edge of Carhaix-Plouger you are surrounded by verdant nature. Walkers have the Mont d'Arrée and the Forest of Huelgoat, and cyclists the Voie Vert and the Velodyssee. Domaine de Trevarez (27km), a mock Gothic chateau with park-like gardens, is a treat in spring, with display of camellias, rhododendrons and azaleas. Up the road is the Vallée des Saints, Carnoët, a unique 30-acre park on a hilltop with 100 sculptures of Breton saints. The target is 1,000.

Local points of interest from Peter & Penny Dinwiddie

  • 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.

Introducing

Peter & Penny Dinwiddie

In 2002 Peter and Penny bought this beautiful medieval manor in a state of disrepair. Inventive and hands-on, they transformed the house, and created a dream garden. They are passionate about doing B&B, bringing guests together over good food and bonhomie; they also like to organise art and textiles workshops. Both house and garden are relaxed, harmonious and visually stunning.
