Description

The 400 year old cottage is a great retreat for couples or singles. With its spiral staircase, private garden, log fire lounge with tv, mod con kitchen with wood burning stove, shower bathroom, close proximity to shops and restaurants and the old medieval town of Dinan. It is on a quiet cobbled road near to shops, restaurants and attractions. The cottage is great for couples but can accommodate up to 2 children on the sofa bed. From here you can explore the Walks along the river Rance, or watch the boats go past as you sit along the river at the local restaurants, or do a bit of shopping. Dinan is a medieval town with cobbled streets and a fascinating history, but has lots of modern shopping areas and out of town shopping centres too. Just outside Dinan further down the Rance, there is Betineuc Lake with beach area, walks, sailing school, cycling tracks. Or if you have children there is an adventure park Colback Park 20 mins drive away.There are many restaurants and cafes within walking

“Honeymoon Heaven!!”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2013

We stayed here for two weeks on our honeymoon from July to Aug 2013, and it was absolute heaven. The cottage is a wonderful old building that has been carefully and tastefully furnished. Everything is there for guests - all the cooking equipment, bedding and towels, washing machine, garden furniture, board games and puzzles etc etc. It immediately felt like home. The bedroom is in the roof with big breezy windows, the living room with antique furniture is on the middle floor - it's very spacious. The kitchen is on the ground floor, and has an oven with hobs and a fridge-freezer. It was very quiet and tucked away, and has a garden just for the cottage, which is really green and a pretty layout. Cleaners came to clean after the first week, and they had left the cottage in impeccable condition, including a welcome pack. There was lots of info provided about using the house. Another reviewer has mentioned the toilet - it's on the ground floor. We didn't mind it at all (after all it's a 400-yr old house!) and the bathroom (on 1st floor) was amazing - decor and lighting. The cottage is between a set of convenient shops and the town walls, and on a lovely cobbled street. We loved Dinan - both quiet and bustly, and full of lovely restaurants and craft shops. The whole town centre is made up of preserved old buildings - it's really something to see. We didn't end up going on day trips as we were completely content where we were, but there were coaches and trains to the seaside and Rennes if we'd wanted to go! See my reviews on places to eat in Dinan too. We came by plane to Dinard (Ryanair from Stansted) and reserved a taxi ahead of time - it was 30 Euros to Dinan, around 30min drive. Good value journey. All in all a perfect stay and we'd recommend this good-value romantic retreat to anyone!
