“Stunning Setting”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

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 little hike to see the large rock formations next to the stream.

“An amazing, magical place”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

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.

“The Enchanted Forest of Huelgoat”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

You cannot visit this part of Brittany without taking in this forest at some point. It is beautiful to say the least with leafy glades, some huge tumble-down rocks at various heights and angles, grotto areas, and waterfalls. It is a photographer's dream! There are damsel flies looking for all the world like dancing fairies over the streams. There are a range of bird species to look out for as well.

On a hot day some cool can be found beneath the trees. There are picnic benches and a number of creperies and restaurants both in the village of Huelgoat and a couple in the forest itself. Some of the routes would not be suitable unless you are reasonably fit and have good footwear, but it is excellent walking countryside.

“Beautiful Breton Town”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Went here with a friend who had a meeting to attend.
While he was at the meeting I had a chance to take a wander around the town of Huelgoat, and it is stunning. The lake is a spectacular place and there are several bars and cafes facing onto it.
This is a place well worth visiting if you appreciate the tranquility and beauty of the Breton landscape

“Another world”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Lovely place to escape, walk, get back to nature and wander in. Amazing rocks of huge sizes!! Lovely little cafe too in a real sun trap. Children must love it here to play in. I would suggest though very sensible footwear as it's slippy in places and very uneven. Great place.
