This was our first visit to Brittany and to Bramble Cottage and certainly won't be our last. The cottage is a rural location surrounded by trees and fields and the first thing that strikes you us silence, apart from birdsong little else is heard. On a clear night the sky is something to behold!!!
The cottage was excellent, probably the best equipped we have stayed in and we have been coming to France for the last 10 years.The cottage is well maintained and tidy.
Outside the there is a wooden table which seats 6 (cushions would be a welcome addition), the pool is heated and even on a cool day is warm enough to swim in, we were there during early September.
David & Vanessa were most helpful from the time we booked and during our stay.
We have no hesitation in recommending Bramble Cottage
This was our second trip to one of David and Vanessa's cottages, this time with our family. Bramble cottage is well located and the swimming pool was just amazing. It was well heated to 28 degrees and all the family used it every day. The cottage is so well equipped and as with their other cottages everything you need and more for a self catering holiday. The wifi is excellent and the English Freeview tv is ideal for long lazy evenings when the weather is a little cooler as our stay was in September. Would love to come back in the winter and make use if the woodburner ! We will be back again !
Having lived in Brittany we decided to come back for a holiday with our 2 young children. We chose Bramble cottage as it had a private fenced pool. From booking the cottage to leaving the owners David and Vanessa really looked after us. The cottage has everything our family wanted including toys for our 2 little boys and ample baby equipment. The large garden with swing was great and the swimming pool was warm and clean. The surrounding area offers so many things to do and we have re booked to come back in 2015 to see the dry Lake. We would recommend this cottage 100% to families of all ages or couples who are wanting a getaway holiday.
This was our first time to Bramble cottage but will not be our last. The cottage is located in a rural location so ideal for a family relaxing holiday but close to all the amenities you require. The cottage was excellent, had everything you could ever want including toys for our two children. On arrival the cottage was very clean and well maintained. The swimming pool was heated and all the family loved it, this made our holiday. We would have no hesitation in recommending this to friends or family and we are coming back in 2014.
