We stopped in the Foret de Huelgoat after what seemed like a very long journey from the ferry at St Malo. My wife had fond memories of visiting as a child and our children needed some open space, fresh air and exercise -- three things available in abundance in the Foret. The main attractions in the Foret are the rocky... More

What's not to like? Humungous boulders, streams disappearing and reappearing from under the rocks, moss-covered trees, trails as long or as short as you want. You can follow the canal from Heulgoat to the old mine, where you see the remains of an old water wheel. The urge to take pictures at every turn slowed me down. This is truly... More

If you are in the area and have some time to spare it is worth taking a walk over the rocks through the woods. If not in the immediate area I would not go out of your way to visit here. Enter down a footpath on the town side of the bridge at the end of the lake. Allow a... More

Lovely trails down and along the river amid boulders. Trainers or hiking boots recommended. Would have had a little swim if the weather had been warmer

impressive, how these stones seem to have fallen from the sky... Take good shoes and walk along the river or in the forest, there are a lot of little trails. But be careful, you get lost easily. They should put more indications about how long a walk takes. We came across many people who were as lost as we were.... More

I wasn't enthused about going here but it turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. The small town is set on a beautiful lake with the forest next to the town at the far end of the lake. There is a path through the forest that is next to the town and it is worth a... More

A beautiful forest, with amazing geological features, and a really magical atmosphere. Pick up a map at the tourist info and allow a couple of hours to see everything - the caves, pools, boulders, the trembling rock and (our personal favourite) the mushroom rock. A lovely day out.
