Gomené Cottage Rental Photos and Description

flexible accomodation for up to 13 people in a row of 3 cottages

A chance to have the use of an entite gite complex.Merlin ,Nightingale and Wren cottages at the Old Bakery gites offer the opportunity for up to 13 people to holiday together - whilst bedrooms are spread over three cottages the largest cottage has a very spacious open plan living , dining and kitchen area that will accomodate communal dining and a space for all your party to spend time together. Located in the heart of Brittany in the village of Gomené, Côtes-D'Armor, all three gites are fully renovated and well appointed traditional Breton stone cottages with features such as exposed stone walls and beams. They are located in a tranquil rural setting but only 3km from the N164 that links quickly and easily to the road network that takes you to all Brittanys sights .

MERLIN COTTAGE is the largest and accomodates up to 7 people. This offers spacious, high quality accommodation consisting of a downstairs large open plan kitchen , dining and living area which is ideal to accomodate all in your party for communal dining and shared time together.A spiral stair case leads to the landing, giving access to three large bedrooms and shower room with WC. The master bedroom, with 4-poster double bed, has views over the courtyard and gardens, the second bedroom has a double bed and wonderful views over fields and the woodlands beyond and the third bedroom has a single and set of single bunks. Both the master and third bedroom overlook the courtyard and gardens.

NIGHTINGALE COTTAGE - offers accomodation for 4 people in 2 bedrooms - with the flexibility of a sofa bed downstairs should a separate bed be required. Downstairs is an open plan kitchen , dining and living area and upstairs the master bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom a set of single bunks. There is a shower and toilet room upstairs.

WREN COTTAGE - is a cute little cottage for two but if the makeup of your group requires another separate bed a single bed can be accomodated downstairs if living space is not a priority in this cottage. Downstairs is an open plan kitchen , dining and living area and upstairs an ensuite bedroom withdouble french sleigh bed.

Beautiful rural setting but accessible from St. Malo and Caen ferries (1h15 and 2h25 respectively) and Dinard and Rennes airports (1h20 and 50 minutes respectively). We are within easy reach of historic towns such as Josselin and Moncontour, Brocéliande the legendary Arthurian forest at Paimpont and beaches are within an hours drive . Ideal location for sightseeing, birdwatching, walking, cycling, or just relaxing. The gites are within the grounds of our former farmhouse and bakery and whilst you will have full access to over an acre of stunning gardens with countryside and forest views each gite also benefits from its own private seating and BBQ area. Our swimming pool is also available for your use (Summer Season Only CLOSED OCTOBER TO 1st JUNE - subject to water temperatures) and if you are taking up all three cottages you have exclusive use of it. The price is inclusive of bed linen and towels for in gite use (swimming pool towels can be hired). Wood burning stove, electric and gas heating. UK and French TV, DVD player and WiFi. Washing machine available for your use. The gites are self catering but the proprietor is a qualified chef and is happy to cook breakfasts and evening meals by arrangement at an additional cost.

IDEAL FOR LARGE FAMILY GROUPS - sorry no stag or hen parties. Only those listed on the rental agreement will be allowed to use the cottages , grounds and facilities.

Sorry not suitable for persons with mobility difficulties.

Pets might be accepted but only by prior agreement

About Donna Thain

Our names are Donna and George Thain. We are a husband and wife team who have given up our careers as a chef and a nurse in the UK to live in France and run this high quality gite complex.

Donna Thain purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Donna Thain chose Cotes d'Armor

After many years of holidaying in Brittany we decided to give up our careers in the UK to 'live the dream'. We love the tranquillity of this rural area and the French culture.

What makes this cottage unique

A chance to rent an entire gite complex and have exclusive use of our swimming.

average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

Beautiful gite set in stunning gardens.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place for a holiday, the owners George and Donna are lovely, they are welcoming, friendly and on hand if needed....they are perfect! The gites have everything you could possibly need, they are decorated and furnished beautifully, the swimming pool was cleaned every day and the gardens are out of this world. There was so much for the children to do, with a very well thought out activity barn full of games,puzzles,garden toys,table tennis table a badminton set for the garden, the list is endless! The location was perfect for going of and exploring,with plenty to do each day. We cannot recommend this property and the owners highly enough!!

Characterful cottage in beautiful Brittany

  • 5 of 5

All we wished for in this charming cottage complex. Our hosts (and their friends) were wonderful (and always willing to go that extra step, to ensure our enjoyment of our holiday was as complete as possible). Pool clean and warm, garden a visitor attraction in its own right. Only down side, local pub rarely open - however great company and catering from our hosts and other guests made up for this. The hosts are bird-watchers and this was an added bonus for our family.
