This former bakehouse and piggery dating from the 1600s has been sympathetically renovated into a cottage for two. Mark and Tricia, who live across the courtyard in their farmhouse B&B, crafted much of the furniture themselves, including the four-poster bed, oak cabinets and country-style kitchen.
The open-plan kitchen and living area is a sociable place to rustle up supper or walk to the B&B across the courtyard for aperitifs and dinner prepared by your hosts. Come back to a soak in the roll-top tub and relax by the wood burning stove.
The cottage is in the grounds of the B&B, surrounded by a hectare of landscaped gardens, and you have your own private garden and patio for morning coffee or a barbecue. Drive 20 minutes to Dol de Bretagne for restaurants, or to Le Mont-St-Michel – borrow a bicycle and get there in an hour. Come back to a welcome hamper with delicious treats of local cider, cheese and bread.
