Bishops Well Cottage is a lovingly and sympathetically restored farmhouse attached to the 17th century Manoir. It has been furnished and equipped to a high standard and provides an ideal location for a family holiday.
The cottage has a comfortable lounge/dining room featuring a magnificent granite fireplace with log stove, a well equipped kitchen and shower room on the ground floor .
The master bedroom is a large,beautiful sunlit room built into the roof to retain the king-post construction. It has a small mezzanine floor (useful for an extra mattress if required) and an ancient armoire- front amongst many features.
The 2 other bedrooms are light and airy; the larger, equipped with two single beds, has a large lucarne window facing the front drive and garden whilst the other, with bunk beds, has a velux window overlooking the cherry orchard.
Although attached to the main house, the cottage has its own completely separate and private entrance.
With the exception of a small dog enclosure, guests are invited to enjoy any part of the garden at their leisure, there being ample space to accommodate all tastes from peaceful reading and shady picnic spots to boisterous ball games..
A private barbecue and garden furniture; a grassed badminton/volleyball court; games room with pool table, table tennis, darts and table football; swings, slide and ball games are provided.
The heated , 12x 6m pool lies to the rear of the cottages and is surrounded by oak, cherry and sweet chestnut trees and extensive areas of open, sunny lawn.
For local amenities Bodion is approximately 15 mins from the historic town of Pontivy where you will find supermarkets, restaurants and shops. Plumeliau, a 5 minute drive, is our local village; a friendly place to buy bread and croissants
St Nicholas des Eaux (15 mins), a charming village on the Blavet River, offers two restaurants, creperies and bars as well as river cruises and kayaking
The children will love tree climbing at the Adventure Forest near Camors and beaches are within 40 minutes drive
These, with the chateaux, museums, restaurants and a steady passage of pardons, fetes and fest noz, will, we think, ensure a varied and enjoyable holiday for all the family.

The Brittany region
Engaging scenery, charming villages, warm people…
Fine foods and good wine, a peaceful rural setting, relaxing outdoor pursuits and many beautiful beaches.
The Morbihan region of southern Brittany can supply all of this... and more.
This quiet fishing and farming region of France is blessed with a beautiful and varied coastline and an interior of lush farmland, woods and moors to delight the country lovers.
The native Breton people, of Celtic descent appreciate their visitors and provide a warm welcome. Their local 'Pardons' and 'Fetes', regional costumes, music, dances, legends and language maintained by the Bretons are a large part of the area's unique charm.
Brittany 's restaurants and bistros supply some of the best of French provincial cooking, very reasonably priced and in generous proportions.
You can't leave without sampling its 'fruits de mer', crepes and cider.
Brittany 's rolling hills, dense forests and lazy rivers, offer a variety of activities; from walking, riding and cycling to fishing and canoeing.
The rich architectural and archaeological heritage provide for excellent one-day tours; the fascinating towns of Pontivy, Josselin, Dinan and Vannes are full of historical interest. Then, of course, there are the megaliths, churches and for the stout-hearted there's the 'quest for the Holy Grail' and the Arthurian legend.
To the south, a short traffic-free drive away, is the beautiful Golfe du Morbihan, a yachtsman's paradise, with all manner of water-sports and numerous little islands to visit on the regular ferries.
Or just relax in the sunshine on an endless choice of beautiful beaches. Additionally the large lakes at Guerledan and Priziac offer excellent facilities for swimming, boating and sunbathing.
Each cottage has details of local amenities and resorts to help you plan your holiday.
Morbihan offers a wealth of activities all within 45 minutes of the cottages.
Pontivy was chosen by Napoleon as a garrison town and renamed Napoleonville for a while. It is a charming country town on the River Blavet with many beautiful half-timbered, corbelled and turreted houses, cobbled streets and attractive shops in the old quarter around the 16th century church of Notre Dame de la Joie.
The 15th century Castle of the Dukes of Rohan with its two remaining towers is well-worth a visit. There is a good variety of restaurants, cafes, interesting shops and good supermarkets. Pontivy has an open-air swimming pool. Market day is Monday.

"Characterful house in a great location with lovely gardens and pool."
We had a lovely holiday at Bodion. The house was well equipped and full of character. The garden was lovely and pool was vital for the children who were in it everyday. The games room was also very popular! Bodion is perfectly situated for visiting lots of charming places eg Josselin, Concarneau, Vannes and the beaches at Carnac. Pontivy is good for shopping with markets, supermarkets and a good cycle shop! We recommend St Nicholas des Eaux for cycling, kayaking, lovely walks and creperie - only 10 mins away.
Al and Marion were always helpful but not intrusive. All in all a relaxing, and fun holiday.
