Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a relaxing and wonderful holiday staying at Brittany Thatched Cottages. The cottages are beautifully appointed, comfortable, well equipment and very clean, distinguishing them from some other holiday rentals we have had. Neil and Trish are wonderful hosts, they're there when you need them but never intrusive. The grounds and setting are tranquil and verdant, with a myriad of walks and country lanes for cycling. The pool added welcome relief and relaxation at the end of some of the warmer days. Whether you want to stay put and read books, amble around the Brittany country side - eating crepes and drinking cider, or drive to some of the many historic towns in the region, Brittany Thatched Cottages makes a perfect vacation. Oh, and let's not forget their fabulous dog Connie - a keen, lovable and very well behaved boarder collie." Alison and Roberta (LA & London)

Wonderful Easter 2016 Break

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful cottage this Easter. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone wishing to have a peaceful and extremely comfortable break from the hussle and bustle of everyday life. Tricia and Neil the owners are on hand and are the perfect hosts. On arrival you are treated to a beautiful basket filled with tasty goodies and on top of that all the basics you could require including tea, coffee, milk, bread, eggs, bacon to name but a few things, are there in the fully equipped luxury cottage.

We will definitely we returning to explore more of the area.

Breton haven

  • 5 of 5

We love this property & the peaceful surroundings in which to enjoy the birdsong & the lovely gardens. The cottage is beautifully presented and well equipped and always spotlessly clean with quality furnishings & linen.

The owners are always helpful and very knowledgeable about the area.

It is well positioned for visiting many places of interest and also the coast.

There are a good selection of restaurants in the area varying from those providing good hearty food, particularly popular with the local workers at lunch time, such as La Tourelle in Melrand to Le Relais du Marquis in Plouay which provides a different kind of menu.

I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone who enjoys the beauties of the Breton country side but with the advantage of not being too far from the facilities of a town.

A wonderful gite!

  • 5 of 5

A real gem of a place. Beautifully presented properties both inside and out set in picturesque grounds in an idyllic location. Neil and Tricia were perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. The swimming pool was a big hit with our 16 year old son. The local crepes were delicious! We would love to go back. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed. There is plenty to see and do around and about, all within easy driving distance on uncrowded roads.

Fantastic luxury cottage in beautiful grounds

  • 5 of 5

La Grange is the perfect destination for a quiet and relaxing holiday in the beautiful Brittany countryside. The cottage was a real joy to stay in. Tricia and Neil are the perfect hosts, whilst being friendly and helpful they were not at all intrusive. Living onsite they are able to give advice about local amenities, cycle routes, suggested days out, etc.

The thatched cottage has been decorated to the highest standard and has every modern convenience you could wish for. The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in having every appliance you could ever want. The lounge, bedrooms and bathrooms were all comfortable and well equipped (specially liked the dressing room off the main bedroom).

The gardens are beautiful and being so extensive it was always possible to find either a sunny spot or some shade. The pool was great and we enjoyed many barbecues in the private garden,

Le Helleguy is definitely a 5 star plus holiday home and Tricia and Neil are 5 star owners.

Fantastic cottage - great for families

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this cottage justice. It looks good on the website, but it is even better in person. Tricia and Neil have done a fantastic job of renovating and maintaining their properties (cottages and grounds). Of all the holiday properties we have stayed in over the years, they are the most organised of any of them without a doubt. They have thought of just about everything - a guide to local attractions, details of the property history, a list of 500 DVDs to borrow on quiet nights, a food basket upon arrival (great when you are tired and arrive late with small children). We have a 1 year old and almost 3 year old. Provided at the cottage: a buggy, highchair, baby monitor, full size cot, stairgates (top and bottom), baby bath, baby potty, rail for the 3 year old's bed, child seats on the bicycles - they had it all! It made our lives so much easier!! The cottage is well insulated and warm, the woodburner is cozy and really works (and it is out of reach of children), the showers have good water pressure - there's nothing to complain about. We visited in Feb, so it was too cold for the pool, but we did play on the playground equipment. Tricia and Neil are very friendly and hospitable. Nothing is too much trouble. Tricia even baked us a loaf of bread at one point.

We visited several local attractions, although many things were closed due to our out of season travel dates: Market and fishmarket at Vannes (GREAT - we went twice), chateau and village of Pontivy, Suscinio Chateau, beach and prehistory museum at Carnac (warning: museum is not overly suited for small children), the 'village' of Melrand which is an actual archeological site, beach at Place des Plage (very nice), sailboat museum just outside of Vannes (very suitable for children of any age). We went on a bike ride in the local area and over to the local creperie, which was very good. Tricia and Neil offer various treatments in their property - manicures, massages, etc. I had a pedicure, back massage and facial. It was very relaxing and handy that I did not have to leave, organise someone to have the children, etc. For the first time ever, we extended our holiday. I would definitely recommend this property.
