Overview

About the property

The Ancient Dwelling is a lovingly restored barn which is set in calm countryside while only 45 km to beaches. It is on a traffic free lane which leads to our private wood and the village lake with its little beach, play area and fitness trail.

It has 4 double bedrooms (one is small and is accessed via the master bedroom so is perfect for small children)and a sofa bed so will cater for up to 10 guests in total comfort.

Additionally, there is a * Yurt bedroom*. Included in the seasonal price, when available, is a large, handmade Yurt. Sleep under canvas on a comfortable double bed with a view of the stars while only a few steps away from all the facilities of the barn.)

The barn living space is large and open plan, with a hand made kitchen at one end, an oak refectory dining table and then on to the lounge with it's leather sofas and wood burning stove.

Outside is a large, heated swimming pool, a pizza oven, barbecue, private garden with sun terrace and raised deck for al fresco dining.

Why Miles & Niki Kirke chose Langonnet

Relax and escape to the country. Listen to the owls, watch the buzzards soar overhead and stroll down the traffic free lane to the village lake. If you are feeling energetic you can follow the trim trail around the lake, if not, sit on the beach and watch the kingfishers. After a hard day relaxing, come back to the south facing garden for a swim or cook up a storm in the pizza oven.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you all so much for a fantastic holiday in your lovely house. Right from the start of the booking process you have been helpful and welcoming. This is a lovely place to stay, we have really enjoyed our trips to the beach, Oceanopolis and Quimper. The facilities here are second to none. We have all loved the pool, the garden and the pets.

A wonderful week had by all.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family holiday together for the first time in 17 years. What a great choice of venue and we were so lucky with the owners Miles and Niki who were really great towards us. This even after a karaoke evening till 1am!

Our Grand kids lived in the pool on the days we stayed at the house and had a fantastic time. There were walks to the lake where we had a picnic and we were very lucky with the weather. The town/village of Langonnet was great with a bar and friendly staff as well as the other few shops. All the residents were very friendly and would help whenever it was needed.

The house itself was ideal for our extended family with a large family dining table that we could all get round at once. Miles had built both a BBQ and a Pizza oven which my Son tested to the full!

There are beaches and historic towns within an hour of the house so there is enough for everyone to do their own thing.

I would strongly recommend this property and the owners who were incredibly friendly and helpful.

We've spent a week here & it's been absolute bliss. The weather has been perfect, there's plenty to do.

And Nikki & Miles are extremely friendly.

We'll definitely come back, our toddler has a wail of a time!

The accommodation was perfect and the hosts couldn't have been more helpful

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Ancient Dwelling. Niki and Miles were the perfect hosts and made us feel very at home and helped with any queries we had and local recommendations. The setting of the house is stunning and we loved exploring the nearby trails and lake. We were lucky enough to even get a dip in the heated pool which I wasn't expecting in late March!! The house was perfect for our needs and provided a great space for our toddler to roam around with freedom. Thanks for a great stay! We will definitely be returning.
