We have just returned from a most memorable stay at the beautifully restored manor house, Kerledan. Our stay was without doubt our most memorable and pleasurable of our four chosen Alastair Sawday recommended places to stay in Brittany.
On arrival, Peter and Penny greeted us at our car with umbrella at the ready as it was raining and help to carry our bags into their most delightful home. Fresh flowers and antiques adorn the exquisite reception room with large comfortable sofas and beautiful fabrics throughout. Penny has a great flair for soft furnishings and colours.
We chose to take dinner each evening as after our first night, where just the two of us dined on sorrel (from the garden) soup followed by monkfish wrapped in Parma ham served on baby fresh vegetables from the garden with dauphinoise potatoes. For our dessert we enjoyed Eaton Mess and coffee. The dining experience was consistent throughout our stay. A good selection of wine was also available at very reasonable price. All this in front of a roaring log fire. A menu to set the taste buds alight.
Guests are invited for pre dinner drinks and nibbles and to mingle with their fellow diners with Peter being attentive whilst Penny is putting last minute touches to our gourmet dinner.
Peter is to be found tending their beautiful garden on our return each day after exploring the beautiful Brittany coastline. There are many interesting places to visit each day whatever your interests are.
Penny makes her own preserves, which are part of a fabulous spread at breakfast. Her cooking skills are second to none, inventive, flavoursome and using vegetables from the garden wherever possible.
Our bedroom was a delight, with the most comfortable bed imaginable. The bathroom beautiful with bath and shower.
Penny and Peter ensured our stay was perfect in every way. We had originally booked for two nights, but stayed for four and will definitely return again and again!
