"We found Laurel and fushia cottage a few years ago and find we cant keep away.Sometimes we are travelling to the ferry ports and it is really convenient for st malo or caen as after a long drive up from the Dordogne it is about right for an added weekend break and the pool is a bonus in the summer months.Gill and her menagerie are so entertaining.The cottages are clean and comfortable with everythng you would need and if not you feel you can ask at any time.The beds are clean and comfortable and the shower excellent.We have also came over for one of Gill's brillient craft weekends and had such fun with our friends for a long-weekend,Gill made us all feel like one of the family.we cant wait to go back again for a chilled out relaxing break,we would definately recommend it.(Best book well in advance as very popular)"

"A short holiday but packed with crafty fun! I loved the B&B, the dinner and the craft workshop which I was a little apprehensive about! No need, excellent tuition on hand. This is a place you can go to in any season. There is lots to do and something for everyone."

"Fourth visit back to Gill and Martin and it feels like coming home. Hadn't stayed in Laurel before, as we were in Fuchsia. Laurel was everyting we expected clean, well equipped, and feels homely, at the same time being spacious.

My parents came with us for the first time and were surprised with the amount to do, both places to go in the area, as well as the amount of entertainment in the games barn and the chance to join in the pottery classes, which are friendly and welcoming, even if you haven't done pottery before you still feel comfortable and not out of place.

Fifth visit already booked"

Location: Plouguenast, Northern Brittany, France

There is plenty of countryside to enjoy within this beautiful area of Northern Brittany, and we are only minutes away from the two towns of Plouguenast and Ploeuc sur Lie, each with a variety of shops and restaurants, and 10 minutes from the medieval town of Moncontour.

There is plenty to do and see in the surrounding area, including horse riding, kayak/canoeing, tennis or fishing, which can all be enjoyed within a five mile radius of Cornean. The scenic lake at Bosmeliac is about ten miles away, while only slightly further, near the historic town of Mur-de-Bretagne, is Lake Guerledan with a full range of water sports. The town of Loudeac is a 15 minute drive away and has a superb indoor swimming pool (with flume), concert hall and exhibition centre.

Within half and hour there is the coastal town of St. Brieuc which has both a traditional town centre and a large retail shopping complex, including Carrefour. Several golf courses can also be reached within 30-40 minutes.
