About Stephen Howell

English owners we have lived in this longere, since 2006 and have spent several years renovating the property including creating the Cottage as separate self-contained accommodation. With the aid of local artisans we have designed and renovated the Cottage to a high standard. Completed in 2014 we have been pleased to offer the Cottage to let since 2015 and welcome guests to this beautiful part of Brittany. We live in the adjacent property so we are able to ensure guests are greeted personally and are on hand nearby to give help or advice if needed.

We handle all bookings and changeover arrangements personally please check us out on simply owners or holiday france direct, look at the comparative prices and booking arrangements, check out our reviews and decide who you wish to book through.

We chose this particular location because we enjoy the beautiful coast and beaches which are a short drive away and the easy access to the historic towns and villages of our region. It has all the advantages of living in the countryside near to towns which have all the amenities whilst being close to the sea. It is also well served by local airports, ports and railways giving access to regional and international links.

We do require a security deposit and initial rental payment at the time of booking. We have already established an excellent reputation with past guests and received repeat visits from some and are always pleased to welcome new guests to this part of Brittany.

Stephen Howell purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Stephen Howell chose Plédéliac

Because it is in a quiet countryside location but has easy access to towns and coastal areas throughout the region.

We think this property has the best of both worlds being located in the country but close enough to the sea and coast to enjoy either whenever it suits. 'Entre terre et mer' it is in a great location for exploring this beautiful part of Brittany.

It is also easy to get to and from ports and airports in the region and further afield.

What makes this cottage unique

We offer short break stays outside the main holiday season. The Cottage is located in a rural setting, surrounded by forests and fields with open views over the surrounding countryside with all the traditional features of an old granite built farmhouse. We are in a great location for visiting this part of Brittany.

Looking for a property yourselves? We can offer accommodation and personal advice on this having gone through the same process ourselves.

Restored to a high standard we have retained many original features in this newly renovated property but we have also included modern finishes and provided everything needed for a successful holiday stay. If you plan to self-cater throughout your holiday then the kitchen is fully equipped to enable you to do this but we think there are plenty of reasons for taking a break from the kitchen and enjoying the local restaurants in our area.

Many restaurants offer good value menu's especially at lunch time. This region is well known for sea food and crepes, cider and pork not to mention the wine and food of France as a whole. Moules frites, oysters and a glass of muscadet, scallops or a sea food platter, are some of the reasons you should consider this part of Brittany and our Cottage in particular for your next holiday. That is not all of course, there are many activities which we describe on our web site adverts which you can pursue in this area. Cycling, boating, golf, walking, horse-riding, swimming, sightseeing, visiting historic towns, sights or museums, or just relaxing on the beach or in the garden are just a few examples of what is available..

Excellent hosts and venue

  • 5 of 5

As a couple with no accompanying children we enjoyed a lovely stay. The accommodation was tip top. The photos really do not do justice. Nestled at the end of a characterful peaceful longere set in beautiful gardens. Walking distance from the beautiful local village, the setting is marvellous. Far from being dedicated ramblers we enjoyed many a walk - including a visit to the local buffalo herd which was a very pleasant surprise Stephen and Kathy - thank you for your wonderful hospitality and for allowing us to share a slice of your life. We very much hope to visit again as we were enchanted. D and J.

Charmant cottage, parfait pour trois personnes

  • 5 of 5

Accueil excellent. Nous avions un problème de voiture et notre hôte s’est proposé de faire, bénévolement, "le taxi" pour nous. L'équipement est complet et le cottage est d'un entretient facile. Bien situé dans la campagne, près des commerces de base, et proche de plus grands centres touristiques. de très bons restaurants à Lamballe: Le Prieuré, La Tête Noire.

Un gîte parfait pour nous qui participions au festival "Noir sur la ville" de Lamballe.

Peaceful countryside setting

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was extremely well presented and maintained. It is on a no through country lane not very far from the village where there is a bakers and small supermarket. There is very little traffic passing the cottage which makes it ideal if you are looking for a place to relax and unwind. There are lovely views from the bedroom windows. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others.

Rural cottage renovated to a very high standard, in quiet rural surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing stay. The cottage was well equipped and set in beautiful gardens. Stephen and Kathy made us feel very welcome and were helpful with lots of local knowledge. It was a short walk to the boulangerie, boucherie and local shop (there is also a pharmacy) in the morning which is located in Pledeliac, a small village. This is a good base for cycling and walking. This is a typically beautiful area of rural France, though quieter than other parts of Brittany, which was exactly what we wanted. Being only 50 minutes' drive from St Malo was a bonus. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We have had quite a few cyclists staying this year and they have all enthused about the cycling opportunities in the area and the absence of potholes! Although everyone has been happy with the facilities we provide we are going to install a couple of cycle racks under the overhang of our workshop for guests use next year as part of our continuous effort to improve our service to guests. We won't be offering to do the rides or pump up the tyres but at least you will have them handy and ready to go when you need them!
