As described in the title, this place was even better in reality than the photos and description suggest. The location is absolutely beautiful. It is completely peaceful and tranquil. The only human beings you will see are the farmer and his wife, who occasionally come onto the field next door to steer the cows! Their is a lovely little pond at the bottom of the garden complete with rowing boat and huge dragonflies. There is path all around the wooded area for the kids to go exploring. The house itself is lovely and the décor is a skilful balance of rustic and contemporary. The are two modern shower rooms and two comfortable bedrooms. The downstairs has a spacious open plan layout. There is a good selection of DVDs to watch and a small library of books and there is English freesat on the TV. Although the pool is on the small side, it is perfect for the kids to chill out in after a day out. Despite the relative isolation of the place, there is still plenty to do in the surrounding area; good walks and bike rides, go-karting and 'Kingoland' amusement park ( it's no Alton Towers mind!) and 30 minutes to the coast. The local town of Plumeliau provides all the shopping amenities you will require. There is also a really helpful English couple, who live locally and manage the property on behalf of the owners should you need any assistance. I can't recommend this place highly enough, and it's not too far away either, less than 2 hours from St Malo.
Sit on the verandah looking down over the beautifully landscaped grounds to the lake and all you will hear are the chaffinches singing from the tallest trees. The peace and quiet is intense; the private woodland provides shaded walks, dotted with seats and rope swings. This is a home built with love and care, not just a holiday let. It is a very special place.
We were looking for a secluded property in beautiful surroundings and were not disappointed. This is without doubt the most beautiful property we have stayed in. It's well equipped, comfortable, and the interior has the wow factor. We really appreciated the fact that there were basics left in the kitchen such as herbs, oil, tea, coffee, tinfoil etc. the extensive DVD collection and tv with English channels was also very welcome on the evenings we stayed in. Loved the massive log burning stove too. Outside exceeded expectations too. 5 acres of mature woods with a huge pond / mini lake and row boat. When we visited the wood was full of bluebells and Lilly of the valley. There were plenty of good walks nearby, and we cycled round on the wonderful empty roads. We recommend a walk or cycle along the local canals, and a visit to the chateau in Josselin. All in all exceeded expectations and highly recommended.
We had a fabulous weeks stay at 'Ty Bois' and could not recommend this house highly enough. Very well equipped with everything that you could possibly need for your stay in a very peaceful setting, well located. owners and caretakers were very helpful. We would definitely stay here again! fabulous for children. To come home after a day out and sit in front of the huge log fire with a glass of wine was the icing on the cake.

This was such a magical place. We loved everything about the cottage, so inviting, cosy and welcoming. The huge wood burner glowing, a glass of wine....who needs anything else!
Everything about this holiday was wonderful... I only wished we could have stayed longer.
Definitely recommend this property.
