May 2016, we chose to spend a four day weekend at the Cottage. The idea was to enjoy a quiet and restful 51st. wedding anniversary in the Breton countryside. The choice we made was, as they state, "exactly what it says on the tin". We enjoyed a completely self-contained cottage situated in spacious grounds, with the serenity that the countryside and nature provide.
Mick and Janet, the owners, even made sure that fresh milk was in the refrigerator for our tea. The cottage is comfortable allowing plenty of room and contains most things required for your holiday and those other items, an Intermarche supermarket is to be found in the local village. We chose to have two evening meals in the cottage during our stay and the cooking facilities were all available and easy to use. The weather was very kind and we were able to sit outside in the garden to wine and dine, most agreeable.
The Breton sea food was a big attraction, plenty of restaurants to choose from along the coast. We were not to be disappointed, both midday and evening times.
Tip for the local sight-seeing: "La Roche Jagu" is a chateau/gardens is close at hand and a must for those who love the gardens, and these are situated, with stunning views above a bend in the river/inlet.

My partner and I stayed here for a week in July 2015. The Cottage was well equipped and comfortable, our hosts leaving not only useful leaflets but also some food essentials. Janet was happy to give us additional information about the area - best places to go to eat, swim and when the local markets were - as well as bikes and a badminton set. Situated within a 5-min drive of Pontrieux, which is a pretty town with several restaurants, boulangeries and a good supermarket. In July the steam train wasn't running - the only disappointment of the holiday. Crec'h Mordo is within a half-hour drive of the dramatic coastline - good for clean beaches, interesting rock formations and lovely seafood restaurants. Overall, it was a lovely restful holiday, combining rural calm with coastal beauty.
We stayed in the cottage for a week in August 2015. The Cottage is located in the most beautiful, peaceful grounds - ideal for "getting away from it all." The countryside and the constant birdsong are a delight. The accommodation is extremely clean and well-equipped with everything you may need. Bikes are available for use and badminton rackets are provided. Janet is the perfect hostess; helpful and informative, although not intrusive in anyway. The Cottage is in an ideal location to explore the coastline on all sides; the "pink granite coast path" is a must for all visitors. Paimpol is well worth a visit; I would recommend Le Restaurant du Port that overlooks the harbour. I would recommend this cottage without reservation to anyone who is looking for a quiet, restful break.
It was like coming home. ..it was exactly as we remembered, peaceful, welcoming, clean, fresh, comfortable. There were the welcoming goodies, we were lucky sun was shining and did so for the next 14 days apart from one day, which we used as a rest day. There is so much to see in such a short distance from our base. We saw new and wonderful places and returned to some new and favourite places. As before Janet and Michael were there if we needed them but were not intrusive in any way. They reminded of us places and market days that mIght be of interest.
It is so peaceful in the private garden area with wonderful well cared for gardens that you are able to stroll around. Yet the small town is only a few minutes by car, a wonderfully stocked supermarket, which is great to shop in, bars and restaurants and lovely river walks.
Already missing the ambience, the fantastic beaches, everything about it....great holiday gite, destination and owners of the lovely cottage ( gite). Well done Janet and Michael another lovely memorable holiday.
My wife and I stayed in the smaller of the two cottages last week Sept - 1st week Oct 2014.
The cottages are set in a beautiful location just outside the picturesque village of Pontrieux.
We found Janet and Mick to be very welcoming and friendly but not intrusive. On arrival we were pleasantly happy to find a hamper of the essentials and a bottle of wine.
Although we were in the smaller of the two cottages this was more than adequate for the two of us and our small dog. The cottage was clean well furnished and nicely decorated in a "country' style. It is fully equipped with all one would need for a self catering holiday. The log burner is a very nice touch and Mick kept us fully stocked with logs. That made it nice, warm and cosy in the chilly evenings. Both my wife and I slept very well.
Crec'h Mordo is ideally situated to explore the surrounding area. The rugged granite coast, some fantastic beaches, ports, towns and villages are all within 20 to 30 min drive. Both Janet and Mick know the area well and give good tips on places to see, markets to visit etc. Or one can simply relax in the large well kept garden........
All in all we enjoyed it very much and extended our stay longer than planned. We would not hesitate to go back.
We knew as soon as we walked into the cottage we were going to enjoy our holiday. Our hosts were there to welcome us with various goodies laid out for us. They were very helpful in explaining everything to us, telling us interesting places to visit etc. they were always there if you needed them but never intrusive.
The cottage was delightful, in decoration,privacy, and so well equipped. Very clean and airy, with doors and windows everywhere you were surrounded by large beautiful gardens. The patio area was very private and looked onto well maintained gardens. The photographs of the cottage are quite correct, but do not give the ambience or how tranquil the setting is.
The base, The Cottage, is very close to Pontrieux by car, couple of minutes. there is a very good supermarket with in a couple minutes from the giite with good supplies and petrol. The walk into Pontrieux is within walking distance. All other sightseeing places were with a very short distance by car and easy to find. In fact it was very central to almost everywhere you wanted to go.
It was a perfect base which turned out to be a perfect holiday and we would definitely return.
Thank you Janet and Michael you have a lovely holiday giite.
