About the neighbourhood
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.
