The
Experience

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 Simon 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.

Reviews

We had a lovely week at Brittany Spa Cottages. Jasmine cottage is beautiful and really well equipped. We particularly appreciated the baby essentials, such as the baby bath, travel cot and box of toys etc... which made our holiday with a 4 month old that much easier. Simon was an attentive, friendly host who gave us great recommendations whilst we were away.

Simon was a friendly and helpful host, he made sure we had lots of helpful information for day's out in Brittany. We enjoyed our week in the Orchid Barn which was well equipped with everything we needed. Hope to return one day for more days exploring Brittany.

Lovely spacious gite with everything that’s needed for a comfortable stay. The private garden was a south facing sun trap allowing us to make the most of the peaceful surroundings. Simon was an excellent host, very welcoming and available when needed. Difficult to find fault, other then the weather which was just unfortunate; it was a good thing the gite was so comfortable while we waited it out

Maggie, Derby

We had a week in this small but comfortable cottage across the courtyard from our most friendly and obliging host. We were unlucky with the weather for much of the time but nevertheless managed to see many of the surrounding places of interest. A second visit, perhaps a little later in the year, with more reliable weather, is a definite option.

Jonathan, Braintree, essex

Simon made us feel very welcome, Orchid Barn cottage was perfect - cosy, comfortable and well equipped. We lived the peace and quiet and the location was perfect for visiting some of the beautiful Brittany towns and villages. Simon was a great host, checking in on us but never intrusive. Thoroughly recommended!

Karen, Kettering

My second time visiting this beautiful place. Last time with friends, this time with the children age 15 and 13. Jasmine cottage was a comfortable and well appointed as my first visit with a wonderful welcome basket with lots of delicious goodies. The local town had everything we needed and TBH we wanted for nothing. We covered many a KM exploring the pretty towns and villages. Lac Guerledan and The Valley of the Saints are a must. A mixture of weather including Snow meant that the hot tub, log burner and the jigsaws were the perfect way to end a tiring day of exploration.

Lindsay, London

What an absolute gem this place is. Such a cosy and comfortable cottage with everything you need and nicely designed. The weather wasn’t great when we were there but we still enjoyed the relaxation. Simon is a superb host, so helpful and friendly but not intrusive. The welcome hamper was without a doubt the best we’ve ever had! Would love to return in early summer.

Trisha, Newport

If you are looking to get away from the hustle of everyday life and are seeking a little peace and tranquility then this is the place for you. The countryside is vast, pretty and with the sighting of other cars being very rare, makes driving a piece of cake. The local village has real character and a river flowing through. There are taverns and restaurants which serve great food. Simon and Penny are very approachable, helpful and friendly. He beef bourguignon is delicious and well worth a try. Their gites are clean and have a lovely country feel about them. I will definitely be going back.

Larry, Romford

What a lovely cottage Orchard Barn is just as described on the website. We had the optional meal, chicken chasseur, on the evening of arrival which was cooked fresh by Penny and was absolutely delicious. The little touches in Orchard Barn were very thoughtful and much appreciated. If you are going to Brittany this is the place to stay.

Brian, Ashford kent

All the excellent reviews I read about Brittany Spa Cottages were true. The cottages were well equipped, very clean and in a wonderful location. The owners Simon and Penny Bennett were very friendly and helpful. The area is suitable for walkers, cyclists and people who just want to chill out in the private gardens. There are so many interesting places to visit only a short drive away. We have visited France many times and Brittany Spa Cottages (Jasmine Cottage) is by far the best place we have stayed.

Norma, Fife, scotland

We had a fantastic stay at Orchid Barn. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and Penny and Simon provided everything we needed and more throughout our stay. We were particularly impressed with the attention to detail given to our babies needs, he even had his own little spa dressing gown! Plenty to do around the area, lots of lovely spots for relaxed lunches and walks, but equally the garden at Orchid barn is fantastic to chill out in, a real afternoon sun trap. Penny and Simon were brilliant hosts and we would definitely visit again.

Zoe, Watford

What a beautiful place! Peaceful countryside, deserted roads, with plenty to do within easy reach. Penny and Simon are fantastic hosts, go out of their way to make your stay a happy one, without being intrusive. Penny's cooking is excellent, very generous portions and I can highly recommend her reflexology sessions. The cottage is very clean, comfortable and well-equipped. We stayed in the 2 bed roomed cottage and had our own private garden. Fabulous!

Rosemary, Nottingham

What a fantasy place. Beautiful luxurious gites with amazing attention to detail from the beautiful welcome hampers, homemade dinners and knowledge of the local area. Both Penny and Simon are incredibly welcoming without being intrusive . There is so much to do and see. We can’t wait to come back next year. Thanks for such amazing memories for our family.

Tara, Farnborough

A lovely place for a relaxing and peaceful holiday. Penny and Simon are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. When we arrived a fantastic meal cooked by Penny was ready for us. The cottage was clean and well furnished; the bed was so comfortable. The welcome pack was second to none and contained so many lovely things, French naturally. It was wonderful to sit out in the garden area and enjoy the scenery and listen to the country sounds, especially the birds. Not too far away are interesting towns to visit, local markets and the coast. Looking forward to our next visit.

Location

The neighbourhood

A beautiful rural area, criss-crossed by footpaths and dotted with farms and villages like sleepy Langoëlan three minutes’ drive away and with two good restaurants. Thursday is market day in medieval Guémené-sur-Scorff, a 10-minute drive, with its Roman bath, and ruined castle. And it’s 25 minutes to the large market town of Pontivy on the Nantes-Brest canal where half-timbered houses rub shoulders with the 15th-century Château des Rohan.

Local points of interest from Simon Bennett

  • Central location allowing easy access and driving to local villages and towns. Coastal areas within an hour or so drive.
  • Surrounded by beautiful countryside and wildlife, without overlooking neighbours and no passing traffic. Set in a private Hamlet which is tranquil and peaceful. Listen to the birdsong, relax and unwind. A haven for butterflies too!
  • With no light pollution many nights provide a stunning night sky enabling you to see all the major northern hemisphere constellations, and the milky way on clear nights. Also the occasional shooting star to make a wish on.
  • Complimentary welcome basket full of goodies and fresh produce from our garden if available. And of course a bottle of wine to enjoy indoors or out. Complimentary toiletries, fresh towels and luxury bedding included.
  • Many local daily markets to browse and barter. Many hidden Brocantes (bric-a-brac & antiques) to explore and pick up bargains and gain some insight into Breton culture and history.

Introducing

Simon Bennett

The Bennetts decided on a move to rural France from Surrey, after their children left home. Penny and Simon fell for this peaceful Breton hamlet with its self-catering cottages, arriving here in early 2018; their energy and enthusiasm for living in the Morbihan region was infectious. Fate dramatically stepped in during Autumn 2018, leaving Simon to pursue Penny’s dream of running a happy and successful small business alone. Simon is committed to developing their vision of Brittany Spa Cottages being a haven of peace and tranquillity for couples and families alike.
