About Stephen Davis
In Aug 2014 Steve took early retirement and we decided to move abroad. Having spent much of our childhoods in the country we wanted to start a small farm with a few animals. Having enjoyed several holidays in Brittany we decided it would be a great place to live. We would like to share this with our guests and give them the opportunity to spend time in a truly peaceful and beautiful rural setting.
Stephen Davis purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Stephen Davis chose Plourac'h
Brittany is an area of outstanding natural beauty with hardly any industry and very few cars. The most likely cause of a traffic jam is a farmer moving his cows down the road or a tractor. Our small farm is set in a tiny hamlet of a few houses surrounded by stunning scenery. In our area most people speak Bretagne a Celtic language as well as French. Bretagne culture is very Celtic in origin and they have their own bagpipes. The Bretagne people are very warm and friendly and we have fantastic neighbours
What makes this Cottage unique
The surrounding countryside is perfect for walking and cycling. It is also a great central base for exploring Brittany. The coast is within easy reach and there a many old towns and historic sites to explore. There are also many local markets in the surrounding towns. We also have sheep, goats and free range chickens on our farm. Our ewes will lamb in late March through to early early June.2018.

Total relaxation in a French rural heaven
What a fantastic area to stay in and Steve and Sue were most helpful in their advice and warm in their welcome. The fresh eggs were delicious, diolch yn fawr !
We walked in the lanes and woods around the Gite and saw lots of wildlife and birds. The gite was very well equipped and the terrace was perfect to relax on.
Ideally situated to explore both the north and south coasts of Brittany .
Many many thanks

A fabulous place to stay.
When it says Family Friendly farm cottage on the title of the property, it means just that! My children had a superb time feeding all the sheep, goats and chickens on the farm and it was the highlight of their day. Steve and Sue are wonderful hosts and so friendly. Our children loved spending time with them and were encouraged to help out. They loved hunting down the eggs. Even my little 3 year old got stuck in. The cottage is beautiful, modern and very clean with very comfortable beds. We all slept wonderfully. Two large bright rooms upstairs suited us all very comfortably and the downstairs is nice and open plan which is perfect. Freesat on the TV meant that we could enjoy our English programmes when we sat down after the kids were in bed. The supermarket is only a 15 min drive away in Callac and we were able to cook each evening although I am told there are some lovely restaurants nearby too. 5 mins away is the Valley of the Saints which is worth a visit and is free. We would also definitely suggest a visit to Huelgoat and a walk around the lake at Callac. If you are looking for a property which is peaceful and has lovely views then this is the gite for you! I wouldn't hesitate to return. It was one of our favourite holidays that we have ever been on. We have fallen in love with Brittany. Thank you.
Lovely relaxing and quiet place
We stayed here with elderly parents in order to visit family who live not far away. Steve and Sue were happy to ensure our needs were met within the property and offered use of the wet room in their studio rental if free when we were there (it turned out not to be necessary). Although they live next door, they were available but not interfering during our stay and there is plenty of space so you don't feel you're living on top of them. We had excellent weather for April and it was nice just to sit outside listening to the bees and animals.
What a fabulous place!
What a fabulous time we had. My 6 year old adored the new lambs and feeding them plus helping to collect the eggs for breakfast! The Gite was very comfortable and beautifully furnished and Stephen and Sue were brilliant hosts. Will definately be back next May for lambing season!
wonderful family countryside holiday!
Thank you Sue & Steve for a fantastic family holiday... the girls loved all of the farm animals... particularly collecting the chicken eggs in the mornings! Beautiful gite and beautiful surroundings and some lovely beaches close by. Thank you for sharing your wealth of local knowledge with us..without it we would have never of found the right markets or the right days! The girls are looking forward to another stay next year!
Lovely cottage in peaceful location
The cottage is newly converted and very well equipped. We have a one year old child and a cot and high chair were provided. The kitchen is also well equipped and there were other useful items such as games and maps. There is ample parking. The location is very peaceful indeed but you are still only a fifteen minute drive from a town with a decent supermarket and other facilities . The cottage is inland but the nearest seaside place is only about one hour away. It's a nice drive too, through the countryside . The farm setting is really nice and our daughter loved the animals. We we also given lots of fresh eggs from the farm as well as some other useful supplies eg milk. The cottage is only about an hour from The port of Roscoff which is handy.
