About this listing
Our welcoming B&B offers three comfortable guest bedrooms with excellent facilities and free Wi-Fi. With friendly, helpful hosts and an excellent situation close to the town centre we hope that you will enjoy exploring central Brittany.
Welcoming Chambres d'Hotes (B&B) run by an English couple in the charming market town of Rostrenen, in Central Brittany. Nestled on a hillside with spectacular views over the old town and surrounding countryside, our house boasts three beautifully decorated and comfortable guest rooms on the first floor. With one double, one triple and one family room we can accommodate up to nine guests. All bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, towels and toiletries provided, tea and coffee making facilties and free wi-fi access. Prices start from 40 euros for single occupancy. Please note that the AIRBNB pricing structure shows an additional 15 euros per person per night but this only applies to guests occupying the same room. If you wish to book more than one room, please contact me first for a quote.
A generous continental-style breakfast is included in the price, packed lunches, light suppers and gourmet evening meals are also available at a supplement. Children are welcome, a cot and highchair are available (free) and there are some toys provided in the family room and play equipment in the garden. Special diets can be catered for. We do everything to make your stay as comfortable as posible.
As well as the town of Rostrenen itself, with its weekly market, cafes, restaurants, a good range of shops, cinema and sport facilities, we are also close to the Nantes-Brest canal and one of France's Voie Verte (green paths) which are ideal for walkers and cyclists. There are many other attractions to be found in this beautiful area, including an historic abbey, the beautiful Lac de Guerledan with a full range of waterports, the Parc Naturel Regional d'Armorique, an Activity Centre with High Ropes for the more adventurous, as well as horse-riding and several golf courses. Rostrenen is ideally located for touring Brittany, with three coastlines less than an hour-and-a-half's drive away and numerous towns worth a day's visit, including Morlaix, Dinan, Vannes and Quimper.
All guests have a dedicated guest bedroom with en suite facilities; access is via a staircase from the hosts main living area.
Interaction with Guests
We are here to answer questions and do whatever we can to make your stay enjoyable. Gourmet evening meals are taken with your hosts for a truly memorable evening of food, wine and conversation.
We are close enough to walk to the town centre in little more than 5 minutes, yet far enough out to be in a peaceful area.
Rostrenen is best reached by car or bicycle! There are buses from Carhaix, Loudeac or St Brieuc but these are infrequent.
No smoking inside the house. An ashtray is provided on the terrace which is covered.
Please request a packed lunch by 6pm the day before required or a light supper or gourmet evening meal no later than 10am on the day required.
Although we are happy to change towels daily, please consider the environment and help us to keep our prices down by re-using towels whenever possible (hang them up = I am happy to re-use my towels, throw them in the bottom of the shower = can I have fresh towels please).
We welcome dogs provided they will integrate with our friendly dog and two cats.
Très agréable séjour chez Wendy et son mari. Très bon accueil, super maison et très bon repas. Petit dejeuner remarquable. Accueil comme à la maison et meme une couverture pour le chien. Les chambres sont très bien équipées (article de toilette, boissons chaudes, jeux pour enfants,...), spacieuses et propres. Très bon rapport qualité/prix. Je recommande vivement.
Very nice stay. The rooms were perfect and the hosts very welcoming. We fully recommand the place. Very nice diner and breakfast.
We stayed with Wendy while cycling the Green Ways of Brittany.
We were made welcome by our hostess and enjoyed our evening meal and breakfast. The house is well located for access to the Cycle routes and Breast Canal with security for the bikes over night. A happy landing at the end of a long hot ride.
Wendy est très accueillante, le petit déjeuner était extra, maison agréable.
Hello Wendy and Mike,
It was nice staying a few days in Brittany! The weather was not to good an when we left one day too early was that because of the cold and wet weather. After that we stayed one night in the Anjou with friends and had the sun with us! Thank you for the pleasant stay in Rostrenen! Jeanine and Bob
Venues pour le festival des Vieilles Charrues, nous avons dormi comme des loirs en rentrant du festival. Une ambiance "comme à la maison" avec le papier peint so british en plus !
Wendy et son mari sont charmants et nous ont offert un super accueil. Un endroit parfait et délicieux pour se reposer dans ce bled "au milieu de nulle part" (commentaire ironique breton).
We stayed with Wendy and Mike for 6 nights and they were the most friendly and helpful hosts. They have an immaculately clean home, well appointed, comfortable bed and plenty of space. The continental breakfasts are ample with good choices and the one dinner we had with them was excellent. Their dog, Buster is a most friendly hound. Rostrenen is a good central location for exploring Brittany. All in all an excellent stay.
I wold definitely recommend staying at Wendy and Mike place. It's amazingly beautiful accompanied w/ superb host willing to go the extra mile to give you the best that an host could do. Breakfast was tasty and with large varieties you can find. The room was large enough and clean.
About the Host, Wendy
J'habite en France depuis 5 ans maintenant, j'aime me promener avec mon chien, jardiner et cuisiner. Je suis aussi membre d'un groupe de théâtre depuis plus de quatre ans.
I am English but have lived in France since March 2010 and absolutely love Brittany. I enjoy walking with my dog, gardening and cooking. Since living here, I have joined a drama group and have enjoyed both acting and directing.
I have two favorite quotes that reflect the way I live my life:
"Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get." (Forrest Gump)
"I wanna be young the rest of my life
never say no - try anything twice
til the angels come and ask me to fly
I'm gonna be 18 til I die" (Bryan Adams)
