A feature open-tread Beech staircase leads to a landing giving access to the three bedrooms and the bathroom. The bedrooms comprise a double, a twin and a single. The bathroom has a P-shaped shower bath with thermostatic shower over, hand basin and toilet. The cottage also has free Wi-Fi (suitable for web browsing). The large (11.5m X 5m X 2m max. depth) heated swimming pool is open from May to September inclusive. Roman steps give ease of access and sun loungers are positioned on the large surrounding patio. The pool area is fenced and accessed via a locking gate. The pool is in a secluded position and flanked on three sides by a sweeping lawn with woodland beyond. Price includes a welcome basket (for stays of 7 or more nights), cleaning products, bed linen, bath mats, hand, bath and tea towels, please bring your own pool / beach towels. Log burners and electric heating for winter lets only. Couetilliec is perfect for families as you will find lots to see and do at the many local attractions or sit back and enjoy the peace and tranquillity in the heated swimming pool, extensive lawns, woodland and meadow. Couetilliec is at the end of a country lane with no passing traffic and absolutely no road noise so everybody can relax and play in safety. It is also a great place if you like an abundance of fauna and flora. We have seen red squirrel, deer, badgers, foxes, buzzards, owls and woodpeckers. There are many ancient pollarded trees and most are smothered in an array of mosses, lichens and ferns. With zero light pollution it's also a great place for a spot of star gazing. If you are keen photographer or artist the opportunities are endless and if you enjoy cycling check out our Brittany Cycle Tours website. We also offer our guests a 20% saving on Brittany Ferries channel crossings and discounts with Brittany Cycle Tours which is based on site for your enjoyment. More

About the neighborhood
Beech cottage is a great place if you like an abundance of fauna and flora. We have seen deer, badgers, foxes, buzzards, owls and woodpeckers. There are many ancient pollarded trees most are smothered in an array of mosses, lichens and ferns. With zero light pollution its also a great place for a spot of stargazing. If your are keen photographer and or artist the opportunities are endless! If you enjoy cycling checkout our Brittany Cycle Tours website. Explore the South coast: Lorient and its beaches are 30 minutes drive (25 miles). Le Pouldu (27 miles) is a lot quieter and has stunning scenery, there is mile after mile of sandy beaches and coves to explore. Our favourites include St Cado, Le Pouldu, Doelan and, Guidel Plage.
How to get there
There is ample parking to the front of the cottage. Although, for our other guest's benefit, we do ask parties travelling with more than one vehicle to park their second vehicle at the rear of the cottage. Lorient airport is 25 miles. Allow 2 hours to drive from the ports of St Malo or Roscoff. Due to our rural location a car is essential, car hire can be arranged at any of the ports/airports. We offer all our guests a 20% discount when booking Brittany Ferries Channel crossings, as well as discounts with Brittany Cycle Tours.
