We are 2 families that stayed at The Ancient Dwelling for 7 nights. Children were 2,3,4,5 and it was a fab property! The outdoors of the property is so lovely and the heated pool was a hit with all adults and kids! The house is located 5 min drive from small town of Langonette where there is a bakery, mini-market, post office, hairdresser, butcher and a church and also a few small restaurants I think (never used that). Private pizza oven and bbq in the garden was lovely. (Try making a nutella pizza and you will think you have died and gone to heaven!). Hosts Niki and Miles were so friendly and helpful and they live next door and helped with questions and so on. Went to some fantastic beaches within 40-45 min drive from the house. On one of them (Trevignon I think it was) I actually thought I was in the Seyshelles.! So nice Had a fantastic week at The Ancient Dwelling! 5 star hosts and house. Thank you Niki and Miles
Niki and Miles could not have been better hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. The Barn is spacious and you would never feel on top of each other as there is so much space both inside and out.
This was our first trip and we would definitely stay again. It was a good place for the 3 teens that were with us.
The pool was amazing and we would recommend using it at night with the lights on - awesome!
We all enjoyed staying in Brittany for the first time, Langonnet well placed to visit various places such as Pont Aven where we had a lovely lunch . Concarneau easy to reach and parking a dream , roads were virtually empty which made driving so easy , Niki made us so welcome, nothing too much trouble to make our stay enjoyable, would love to return one day and would have no hesitation in recommending this place and the hosts . Thank you Niki
We spent Christmas and New Year in the Ancient Barn and found it to be a cosy home for a relaxed three-generation Christmas break (3 to 67 years old!). We kept the welcoming wood burner going throughout our stay - so lovely to come home to. We chilled out in the house, walked around the lake and took the children to the play area on a couple of days - just enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the barn’s rural location. No need to get in the car and rush out anywhere. Thank you Nikki and Miles for being such lovely hosts and for the beautiful Christmas tree. It was wonderful - the barn felt so atmospheric .. and Pere Noel visited too!! (Thank you.) It was a lovely place to spend a family Christmas... and the beds were really comfortable.
The Accommodation is awesome, with a homely feel as soon as you walk through the Door, Log burning Fire (if required) BBQ, Table tennis and the outdoor Heated pool which was the biggest hit with the children (aged 9,11,13,15) The location is Rural, perfect for a relaxing base. The town of Langonnet is a very pleasant walk (about 20-25 mins) and has a range of Shops (butchers, Bakers, TABAC, bars and even a Pizza Take-Away which opens Friday evening which works out great to avoid cooking when you are leaving Saturday morning).
Niki & Miles are great hosts, really Friendly and helpful too.
Saint Barbe Church is a must see (about 10 mins away) and I recommend the Rouge Beer in the adjacent Tavern after ringing the Bell. Langonnet Abbey is also great, Pontivy is a real medieval village and worth a Visit.
A little further but still close enough to visit and perfect for kids, are the beaches around Lorient, Branfere Animal Park, Kingoland and Carnac.
