“3 weeks of Heaven”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our family spent 3 lovely, relaxing weeks at Penderff but it still didn’t feel long enough. The Gite itself is gorgeous, spotless with modern fittings but still retaining the traditional feel of a French cottage. We loved sitting outside every morning, at the table under the vines, enjoying our breakfast in the fresh country air.
The beautiful green gardens and countryside surrounding the Gite provide plenty of space for activity, relaxation or late evening walks to work off you dinner.
The recently opened local restaurant, L’hermine, is certainly worth a visit in Lignol. The small bakery in Lignol is also very good – their fresh out of the oven pain au raisin was truly delicious.
The cottage is only a 10 minute drive from the historical village of Guemene Sur Scorff and the supermarket there is very well stocked indeed. A special mention has to go to Aux Sabots Rouges if you are looking for something to eat in Guemene – very child friendly and superb food at a reasonable price.
Our family really enjoyed days out at the nearby beaches or trips to historical towns in the vicinity. There really is so much to do and see in the nearby area that it can be quite hard to fit it all in. The beaches at Morgat and Camaret-sur-Mer were particular favourites of our 2 year old daughter. Closer to the Gite, the little sandy lake with children’s park at Priziac was great for a quick trip out.
What really made out holiday were the owners themselves – they were so friendly and helpful that it really felt like we were leaving friends at the end of the trip. Offering to pick things up for us at the supermarket; letting our daughter play with their animals (Ellie is missing Teasel!); providing freshly laid eggs; offering suggestions for visits – the list is endless.
Penderff is a really special place - can't wait to return!

“A truly wonderful, relaxing holiday!”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday at Penderff. The house and location are perfect and the views are truly amazing.

We've stayed at many properties throughout France and can honestly say this is one of the very best - we loved nothing more than lazing around the gardens with a glass or 3 of wine! The children absolutely loved the animals, games room and the freedom to explore the vast grounds.

Judith was extremely helpful, friendly and there whenever we needed her. Thank you for letting us share your French idyll - we really would love to return.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

A lovely gite in a beautiful setting. Judith and Jeremy are wonderful hosts who are on hand if you need them to offer help and advice. They gave us loads of ideas of places to visit while we were there. The gite is very comfortable, cosy and well equipped. Our sin loved feeding the chickens every day. A wonderful holiday and we can't wait to go back.

Thank you so much for your great review. It was a real pleasure having you all to stay, as I said to you at the time of your visit, we have never had a family who explored so much and made use of every minute of everyday, we are so pleased that you enjoyed yourselves. We can't wait to welcome you back again. Please tell the family that on Easter Sunday we had four more baby chicks, they are really cute!

“Great family holiday in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed October 11, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This is the perfect holiday rental for kids and adults of all ages. Jeremy and Judith are the perfect hosts, there when you need them but not intrusive or overbearing (the cake on arrival is out of this world). The setting is idyllic complete with outdoor pool and tons of land for the kids to run and play. The nearby village has a large supermarket, restaurants and gift shops. The location is ideal with the coast only half an hours drive away and tons of great places to visit nearby, from castles and walled cities to zoos and aquariums all within a two hour drive. The cottage is immaculate with all the amenities you could need for a comfortable stay. We can't recommend this amazing rental enough and hope to return there in the near future.

“Best Holiday in years, didnt want to come home.”
Reviewed September 18, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The best holiday we have had for years. Judith and Jeremy were fantastic and so helpful. The Gite was immaculate, very clean with everything you would need. The upstairs bedroom & bathroom was delightful.
Great weather and we spent lots of time by the pool with great views. Lots of nice places to eat and we had some great days out. A real chance to relax far enough away for it to be very quiet but help if you need it.
The cake was lovely and the welcome pack a real help. I was surprised how clear the night sky was with the brightest stars I have ever seen. Can’t wait to go back
Thanks so much for a great holiday needs more stars to do it justice.

“A wonderful holiday!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Having decided to take my two daughters to France this summer I came across Penderff by accident - what a fantastic accident!

Right from booking the gite through to leaving France Judith and Jeremy have been excellent, with great communication and extremely helpful.

We arrived to find the picturesque gite, totally true to the description. Fantastically equipped with all the comforts of home and a wonderful gift of wine, croissants and a home made cake! The girls were thrilled to find a fantastic games room and superb swimming pool, as well as the chickens and piglets, which entertained them wonderfully! I could not have asked for any better!

Throughout our stay we were lucky enough to have super weather and so we did not venture too far, however Quimper was a lovely day out. Judith and Jeremy were very helpful in explaining the local area and giving advice.

We have booked another two weeks at Penderff and are very excited to return! Thank you for an excellent, and very memorable holiday!

“An idyllic, reading retreat!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Thank you again Jeremy and Judith for sharing your little French paradise with us. Our first trip to Brittany and so much to do - the children are exhausted!

The gite was the perfect base for our travels and plenty for the children to do, from exploring the nearby coast, towns, horse riding, zoo at Pont Sorff and for the rainy days, Oceanopolis and the fabulous Clay Barn. And to return to such a relaxing environment was the perfect break for us! We even spent a few days just at the gite, with walks, swimming, boating lake and outdoor games keeping everyone happy before firing up the barbeque and opening a good bottle or two.

Jeremy and Judith have been perfect hosts, on hand with great local knowledge and suggestions, and very welcoming. Meg wants another cake and is missing the chickens already!
