Elizabeth and Matthew’s 18th-century cottage sits in three acres of garden on the edge of a small river valley and is surrounded by rolling countryside – a lack of light pollution makes it terrific for star gazing.
Breakfast around the large table in the kitchen includes bread, croissants, homemade jams, eggs from the hens, cheeses and charcuterie; the nearest restaurant is a 15-minute drive or you can stay in for delicious four-course dinners – aperitif, wine and digestif included.
Read or play games by the wood-burner in the cosy guest sitting room; there’s a kettle if you fancy a cup of tea. You can sit out in the garden, and children will love the swimming pool, swings and trampoline. You’re perfectly near to sights in both Brittany and Normandy and it’s a 45-minute drive to the coast.
