Philip Pearsall purchased this farmhouse in 2012

Why Philip Pearsall chose Mohon

We bought this property because we have holidayed extensively in France for the last 25 years and love the peace and tranquillity of the local rural area and the friendliness of the Breton people. We fell in love with the Farmhouse, with its' beamed ceilings, character and charm, offering ourselves and our guests extensive accommodation and large garden areas to relax in.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We fell in love with the character and the ambiance of the property and the surrounding countryside when we first viewed it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our extended family - all three generations of it- absolutely loved The Old Famrhouse. It was pretty cold when we got there so we had the heaters running most evenings, but the wood burner in the living room was lovely (and we didn't have to pay extra like some other properties we looked at). The games room got plenty of use, as did the bar and pool table (which is bigger than the one pictured). The hot tub was ready when we got there.

The owners - Phil and Jenny are both lovely, friendly and approachable. They explained how to use everything and gave us lots of advice before and during our stay regarding shopping (ie. Everything is closed on sundays), days out etc. There was plenty of space for the ten of us without it feeling too big, and I imagine it would be fine with twice as many.

All rooms are en-suite which was great, and we had no problems with plumbing (such as a previous reviewer had). We had a couple of powercuts when we had lots of electric heaters running at the same time as the washing machine, but the owners sorted it out straight away.

Wifi was only available in the games room, which is locked at night so as not to disturb anyone, however this was not a problem for us. (I had no problem using my mobile network out there.) Though the owners' accomodation was above the games room and next to some of our rooms, the walls are plenty thick enough and the close proximity did not affect our privacy.

Due to nature of the house, the stairs leading up to some of the bedrooms were quite steep and narrow, and one set wasn't particularly even. This didn't cause us too many problems, however they might be more difficult for those with mobility problems or children. The trick is to take them slowly and not be holding two suitcases!

I treated myself to a massage and that too was lovely, as well as a fraction of the price I'd pay back home!

This house was fantastic value for money, and it is easy to get to the most popular places to visit from Mohon. I would strongly recommend this house to friends and family!

Highly recommended, ticks all the boxes

  • 5 of 5

The Old Farmhouse was our venue for a superb 10 day extended family holiday. Hosts Phil and Jenny were warm, welcoming and informative, attentive but not intrusive.

The accommodation is outstanding, 6 large bedrooms all ensuite which allows privacy when required, three large communal areas kitchen, lounge and bar/dining area which comfortably seat a large number of people when eating or socialising. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, plus there are plenty of fridges and a freezer in the kitchen and bar area, which easily cope with the demands of a large family/group.

The standard of cleanliness throughout the property was outstanding, with excellent attention to detail.

The outside area has a very pleasant pool and hot tub area - fenced and locked so safe for children of all ages, 2 spacious patios ideal for a BBQ and beautifully tended gardens - again, fenced all round so very safe.

The Games room provides ample entertainment for everyone in the unlikely event of rain. Wifi available if required.

The local area is interesting, Josselin is a town worth visiting more than once for a stroll or to eat. Ploermel has an Activity lake with plenty going on. Carnac is slightly further away but well worth a day out to visit the Megaliths and enjoy a meal at nthe seaside town of Trinite-sur-Mer.

A superb holiday was had by all, everyone thought the accommodation was great value for money.

An absolute gem in the heart of rural Brittany

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful old farm house in a stunning location. Fantastic amenities from the ensuite rooms to the swimming pool and hot tub. The best part of my stay though was undoubtedly the friendliness and hospitality of Jenny and Phil. I would return to stay here again in a heartbeat!

An amazing gem of a place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a large group of people (13) and The Old Farmhouse was just amazing. Every room has an en suite bathroom, there is loads of space if you want down time. Outside the pool and hot tub were lovely and kept the children amused for ages. There was also bikes to use and a games room.

Jenny and Phil were wonderful hosts very helpful and easy to talk to and give advice on places to go and things to do!!! Can't wait to go back again!!!

Throughly recommended!!!

A well equipped house with lots to offer

  • 3 of 5

We were three families (6 adults) and currently have a total of 4 small children. The house in rural Brittany around a 5-minute drive to Mohon and about a 20-minute drive to the nearest ‘larger’ town. There is a near neighbor across the fence from the pool.

The house is very large & the six rooms are split into three lots of two. This meant our small children could be far enough away from each other not to wake each other, and also gave us our own space. The communal spaces were very large, certainly for a party of our size, and could easily accommodate a few more. The house and garden are both very well equipped. We cooked and ate nearly all our meals in the house and didn’t come across anything we could have done with or had missed from home. The house is in good order, the beds are comfortable and the lounge, games room and bar are all great.

Notes of caution

Firstly, on arrival we were asked for £300 security deposit – this is to be expected from a holiday let, but it would have been helpful to have this clearer on the website or to have been reminded as part of the booking process. There is no ‘damages policy’ and so we were left unsure what would count as reasonable wear and tear and what might be charged for.

Secondly, we had issues with the hot tub, despite its size only four people can use it at once for a maximum of 20 minutes at a time. Whilst we don’t own one ourselves, I’m assured this is unusual. Ideas of spending long evenings drinking cocktails in the hot tub were short lived. Having misunderstood the guidance on the first night, we felt sufficiently ‘warned’ by Jenny and Phil over the next couple of days that we stopped using it, feeling the joy had been slightly sucked from the experience.

Thirdly it’s worth noting that the pool is lined rather than tiled and not heated and so it can be very cold. We visited in August and although we had some bad weather its temperature, even on hot sunny days, meant we rarely used the pool.

Finally, don’t underestimate the impact of having Jenny and Phil on site. Whilst they were nice and did largely keep out the way, they would clean the pool and hot tub themselves, usually between 9 and 10 am. We all agreed that we felt like we had ‘mum and dad’ living next door, and were, perhaps, less able to let our hair down than we would have liked.

We had a lovely time in this house and it does have a lot to offer, so provided you’re careful with the things above it makes a good destination.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay despite the unseasonal weather. We would like to highlight that we did drive to Ploermel so the first arrivals of your party could follow us to the supermarket to pick up supplies on the Sunday, we also supplied some wine, beer and milk on the first day as they had no provisions. As advertised we have solar pods on the swimming pool which require warmth through the sun to heat the water. The security deposit is a normal requirement and unlike most holiday lets we don't charge for crockery or glass breakages which we would have explained to you had you asked. You will note that we did transfer your full deposit back within 1 day of you leaving. We give a full set of written instructions and during the walk round talk through do's and dont's regarding the hot tub, including the effect of wearing make up, body oils, fake tan and sun tan lotion/creams which we did to one of your party who said he would talk everyone through it. Any problems can be easily avoided by having a quick shower before using it. Our hot tub is built for 4 people having 4 purpose built seats in it. Wherever you use a hot tub the time recommended by the manufacturers is 20-30 minutes to prevent any dizziness when you get out. We set high standards of cleanliness for the pool and hot tub which is why we clean them both daily ensuring the water quality and cleanliness in both. This normally takes a maximum of 15-20 minutes however if as in your groups case, oils or creams or make up products are still worn in the tub this leaves a nasty brown oily residue as we showed you, we then have to spend far longer cleaning it and improving the water quality again. I am sure you realise that dirty water breeds bacteria. However we did note that after we got the water back your party used the hot tub with no further issues. You will see that most of our guests give us 4 or 5 stars and feel your mark of 3 stars is totally misleading and unwarranted.
