A granite farmhouse was built in 1880 as "The Big House" for the
hamlet and on which all others depended for their livelihood.
Adjoining the main house is a longiere - a typical Breton long, low
building - which contains the original house, a workman's cottage and
a stable. There is also a stone barn and a second detached small
stone stable.

Private parking is provided for guests in the small car park adjacent
to the house.

South facing, the house has a garden at the front which guests are
welcome to enjoy.

Inside the house has recently been renovated and the owners have
retained as many of the original features as possible, including the
wooden staircase, doors and the large granite fireplace in the dining



Two of our en-suite bedrooms offer twin beds and two offer double
beds. We can also provide a cot or extra folding bed in a room
should this be required. Central heating and good insulation keep
the rooms warm in winter and large windows together with blinds or
shutters and a fan in each bedroom help keep the rooms cool in the

All bedrooms have tea and coffee making facilities, magazines and
tourist information is freely available. Books and board games are
also provided for the use of guests, if desired.



The tiny hamlet of Kerlouet is set amongst the green fields, rivers,
lakes and forests of rural Brittany with easy access to the north and
south coasts. Pretty stone cottages and farmhouses nestle amongst
the trees while the Breton people quietly go about their daily lives.
The hussle and bussle of the city seems far removed from this calm,
and peaceful place. Yet an easy 20 minute drive on empty roads
brings the traveller to the mediaeval city of Guingamp and its bars,
restaurants and shops. The amazing, naturally beautiful Granite Rose
coast is a further 20 minutes drive and the family friendly beaches
of Tregastel and Plouha are close by. The lively ports of Perros
Guirec and Binic are also nearby.

Travelling through country lanes it is not unusual to come across
Menhirs (standing stones) and Dolmens. These relics from the stone
age are commonplace in Brittany - two fine examples are less than 10
minutes drive from Ty Gwennili. Legend and folklore give
explanations which satisfy some and add to the curiosity of others.
Nevertheless these amazing constructions have stood the test of time
and continue to cause wonder to the 21st century traveller.

The Breton people are proud of their Celtic heritage. There are
numerous festivals throughout the year where traditional music played
on the pipes and flutes are enjoyed, sometimes with music from other
Celtic areas. The festivals include traditionally costumed dancers
giving displays of regional dance and always opportunities to join
in. Breton dancing is enjoyed by young and old alike. Local
festivals include, "Festival des Camellias’ (March, Guingamp),
‘Festival Plinn du Danuoêt (August, Bourbriac), ‘Festival de la Danse
Bretonne’ (August, Guingamp) and many others. These colourful and
lively spectacles are rooted in time and play an important part in
the lives of local people - something they enjoy sharing as part of
the promotion of their culture. Kerlouët is in the heart of this.
