“One of the best cottages we have stayed in and one we will definitely go back to!”
Reviewed 11 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

After a disappointing day viewing potential second home properties in Brittany we were tired and fed up and hoping that our accomodation for the next four days would end the day on a high - and Orchid Barn definitely exceeded all our expectations!
The cottages and surrounding barns are well looked after and beautifully kept so the first impressions as we drove up to and into the yard were good. Our hosts Denise and Julie were immediately on hand to welcome us and show us around Orchid Barn as well as respond to a host of questions and listen to our disastrous first day of viewing!!
The cottage is one of the best we have stayed in from the beautifully furnished rooms to the comfortable bed to the powerful shower - and the extras that you do not usually find with cottage bookings that set it apart namely the towels and toiletries, a fantastic welcome food pack and the hot tub.......
We loved the cottage so much that we intend to book this as our base for our property search weekends and holidays in the coming months.

“Comfort and Tranquility in a Lovely Setting”
Reviewed 27 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Lovely self catering accommodation in sensitively restored traditional farm steadings, located at the end of a farm road in beautiful rural Brittany. After many hours searching for something at the top end we found Orchid Barn. From the outset communication with the owners was excellent, queries answered fully and promptly. Booking includes a comprehensive information pack.
On arrival first impressions were good. Lovely well maintained farm buildings with manicured grounds. We were given a warm welcome from Denise who took time showing us around the property explaining the ins and outs; the outdoor hot tub was already calling!

Orchid Barn is delightfully comfortable accommodation for 2 with attention to detail from end to end. Large very comfy bed, nice lounge for relaxation with dining table, good tv and wi-fi, small kitchen area and leading off the lounge, one step down, a large shower room with a shower that really works; but there's no bath. You have exclusive access to the large garden at the rear of the Barn with quality garden furniture too. Car parking is next the garden very close by. Although this accommodation would not be suitable for wheelchair users it could be ok for others as there are only a couple of steps to the garden and none to the front of the Barn; you should check with the owners.
The hot tub has to get a mention; it's large, private and thoroughly relaxing. Its shared with the other cottage, a.m. or p.m. day about.
This was a real find; Julie and Denise work hard to give their guests a memorable holiday experience. Their welcome pack was one of the most generous we have come upon. The owners live on site, are there if you need them but otherwise very discrete. So if you're looking for tranquility on top of all this; look no further!

“A relaxing and luxurious break with superb welcome hamper.”
Reviewed 24 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We were welcomed by Denise and provided with a selection of fresh items grown at the cottages together with a taste of France. Orchid Barn was really spacious and even had its own private outdoor space. It was so tranquil it gave us a really restful time even though we did do a lot of exploring around the area.
The bed was superbly comfortable and barn was really homely and fitted out really well. Having the use of a BBQ was really good as was the hot tub experience. Would definitely recommend and plenty to do and see locally.

“Complete comfort and relaxation”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We wanted a holiday where we could completely relax and unwind... Boy did we get it. Denise and Julie have created something special here.
We arrived to an amazingly generous welcome pack (as commented by other reviewers, the best we've experienced). The property was immaculate and well thought out. We had the comfiest bed (never set an alarm to wake to) the best shower (amazing!) wifi, English TV, a stereo with iPod docking and a well prepared kitchenette.
The private garden is fantastic, drenched in sun with our own BBQ which we made use of.
We used the hot tub during the holiday and were even given towels to use with it.
Denise and Julie were always there when we needed advice but never intruded. in fact we didn't see them unless we specifically looked for them!
The location was good with smooth French roads which made driving anywhere a pleasure! We explored all the local towns and the beach.
If you need to get way from it all, for total relaxation and luxury then look no further than the Orchid Barn!

Dear W & C
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a kind and thoughtful review!! It really does mean the world to us to know that our guests feel relaxed, comfortable and highly valued! We were so lucky to have found such a magical place to live and absolutely love being able to share it with others. Glad that you liked the bed - super comfy beds and high quality linens where at the very top of our priority list when setting up our cottages here in Brittany; sometimes I think that we should start another business selling beds as we could have sold this one a 100 times over! Once again, thank you for your kind words, it was certainly a pleasure having you here and we hope to welcome you back again in the future. D & J

“Exceeded all our expectations”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We chose Orchid Barn hoping for a peaceful location away from it all, with the opportunity for some good mountain biking. All our expectations were exceeded. The cottage was perfect, very clean, the kitchen with everything you need, a comfortable bed, powerful shower, genearous welcome back and an absolutely lovely private terrace with garden for BBQ's in the evening sunshine. The hot tub was an added bonus. The mountain biking was fabulous with some very nearby VTT routes clearly marked providing good trails and views along the way. Julie and Denise were excellent hosts and available to answer any questions we had and provide advice re the local area. We will be definately returning and we thoroughly recommend a visit.

The gite is situated at the far end of a country lane, the perfect location for a quiet restful holiday. It is spotlessly clean and everything is to a very high standard, everything you need is provided. There is a welcome pack supplied which will tied you over until you have chance to shop. We took advantage of a meal on our day of arrival,the fish pie and apple pie were delicious.The hot tub is that added extra to take advantage of and to chill out. Outside the gite there is a patio area with a table, chairs, barbecue and loungers. You even have your own part of the garden. I have no hesitation in recommending Orchid Barn Thank you Denise and Julie for a perfect week.
