There’s a seductive tranquillity to the Scorff valley and setting out on foot or on a bike, maybe after a lazy coffee and croissant breakfast, feels wonderful. Coming back to soak in the big outdoor hot tub rounds things off nicely.
You stay in one of two granite cottages, each with French windows bringing in lots of light and with your own hornbeam-hedged garden behind. You’re welcome to wander the main gardens too which are beautifully planted, or to ask the helpful Bennetts for anything you need.
Walk into the local village where there are two restaurants, explore towns and medieval Pontivy; stunning coastal beaches are an hour’s drive for a day out with a picnic, and lake swimming is nearer at the impressive Lac de Guerlédan half an hour away. There are pretty walks along forest trails around the lake too.
