Ferry discounts with Brittany Ferries are available - please contact us for details.
Convenient arrival and departure days can be organised to suit our guests most of the year but for the months of July and August changeover day is Thursday. This enables our guests to take advantage of cheaper fares and less traffic on the roads than a Saturday changeover.
On site are Laurel Cottage (sleeping 6/7 + cot), the owners own property and Fuchsia Cottage (sleeping 4 + cot). There is a 10mtr x 5mtr fully enclosed, heated, outdoor swimming pool and a games barn consisting of a table tennis table, Bebe foot table and pool table downstairs with a full size snooker table (over 16's only) upstairs. There are plenty of toys and ride on toys for our younger guests.
Also on site is a Pottery, Arts and Crafts studio where you can join in and have fun with some of the many crafts or purchase original pieces to take home with you. As well as hand built pottery you can try your hand at jewellery making, acrylic abstracts, fused glass techniques, card making, scrapbooking (digital and by hand), serviette craft, patchwork, rug making, crochet, knitting and glass painting.
We have many beautiful beaches and towns within easy driving distance. The championship 18 hole golf course at Val Andre is only 40 minutes drive as well as a couple of nearer 9 hole golf courses. We also have an equestrian centre in Loudeac, just fifteen minutes away, and canoe rental in Plouguenast which is just five minutes away.
If you fancy bike riding then there is bike hire at several venues and there is water sports equipment for hire in several places, Lake Guerledan and Erquy to name just two.
We have been married for thirty six years and have lived the last sixteen years in Brittany. Martin commutes to England once a month for work and Gill lives in Brittany full time. We have three children, Samantha, Lee and Kieran and three grandchildren, Ethan, Kiera and Freya...all of whom live in England, but love to visit Brittany as often as possible. We love where we live and have many interests and friends. Food plays a big part of life in France and we enjoy entertaining and having fun.
Gillian Cossins purchased this cottage in 2001
Gill and Martin moved to this most beautiful part of Brittany from England in 2001, having lived in Essex for the previous 25 years. They took over the property in Cornean with its two existing gites and have enjoyed the company of a stream of varied and interesting people holidaying with them for the past sixteen years. Many of these visitors, they are delighted to say, visit them year after year and have become good friends. The swimming pool and gardens were a huge bonus and when the barn next door came up for sale it added to their dream of having a pottery and craft studio on site as well. Gill teaches regular pottery and craft classes each week, to which guests are more than welcome to join in. Their dream was further realised when they added a little hobby farm for rescued animals.
Our property is very central and as such it is no problem to get to a great variety of interesting places, beaches, golf courses, shops and restaurants.
On site you can enjoy the heated outdoor swimming pool and the games barn with bebefoot, table tennis, pool and a full size snooker table.
Both cottages are equipped with satellite television, hairdryers and irons and have access to washing machine and ironing facilities. We also provide free Wifi access.
Cots and high chairs can be provided also free of charge.
A linen service is available at a cost of £5.00 per person, per week. Two course, Evening meals can be prepared and left in your cottage by prior arrangement at a cost of 15.00 Euros per head. A chauffeur and baby sitting service is available if you would like to have a nice adult night out on your own.
Once you have decided on the type of holiday you would like to spend with us, email or telephone to confirm availability. We will then send you a booking form which you need to complete and return to us with a third deposit and the balance of your holiday will be due eight weeks prior to the start of your holiday.
We are flexible over your arrival and departure dates but, at the moment, during the months of July and August we do only have a Saturday changeover. We do ask that you vacate the cottages at around 10am and arrival time can be anytime after 4pm.
This was our second visit to Fuschia Cottage. We have had another fantastic holiday. Very relaxing from the onset. Gill and Martin are friendly and thoughtful hosts who are happy to give advice on the best places to visit and where to eat out etc.
We were very lucky with the weather this year and had sunshine for the whole two weeks. We used the pool every day and always found it to be clean and well looked after.
Although the location is very quiet, it is only a few minutes in the car in to a couple of small towns which both have bars, restaurants, bank, bakery and supermarket.
The hobby farm has some memorable characters including two pot bellied pigs call Prudence and Prunella. You are welcome to take any food scraps round to feed them yourself - entertaining for children and parents alike. Gill and Martin also have some family pets who are very friendly if you want to give them attention.
I cannot rate the Gite and Gill and Martin highly enough - we were made to feel so welcome. As I said before, this was our second visit and we are going back next year.
