Description of Les Horizons Bed & Breakfast:The location of the house offers spectacular views of the town and surrounding countryside, ever-changing with the weather and the time of day: in the words of a recent French visitor, “C’est magnifique!” We are situated just to the south of the town, a mere 5 minutes walk to the town centre.
On arrival, you will be shown to one of our three guest bedrooms, on the upper floor.
Our first room is ideal for a family, being a large room partially divided into two with the ensuite bathroom providing some privacy between the double bed at one end and the twin single beds at the other. This spacious room with views of the back garden has enough space for a cot as well if needed, a box of toys for the children, a hair-dryer, tea and coffee making facilities and free wi-fi access. The bathroom has shower, wash basin and toilet and towels are provided.
Our second room is ideal for a couple, offering a comfortable king-size bed in a room with spectacular views of the town and the horizon. The ensuite bathroom has shower, washbasin and toilet and towels provided, and the room has tea / coffee making facilities, a hair-dryer and free wi-fi access.
Our third room offers a comfortable double bed and matching day bed, set up with cushions for use as a settee but easily transformed into a single bed for an additional adult or child, in a pretty room overlooking the front garden. There is an ensuite bathroom comprising bath with shower over, wash basin and toilet, a large cupboard for hanging clothes and storing suitcases, a hair-dryer, tea and coffee making facilities and free wi-fi access. (Please be warned that this bathroom has a sloping ceiling, although our 6 foot tall friend has no problem using the shower!)
A bookcase on the landing offers a selection of books for you to borrow and read during your stay, as well as a range of board games and local information.
A Continental-style Breakfast is included in the price and taken in our tiled family dining room. Typically, breakfast will consist of your choice of tea, coffee or hot chocolate, with fruit juices, cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit, bread, jam and locally-bought and/or home-made patisserie.
We also offer an evening meal ‘en famille’ (literally meaning, with the family); this should be booked no later than 10.00 on the day that it is required. You can choose between a light supper or a gourmet four-course meal with wine included. It is also possible to request a packed lunch to take with you on days out. So far as is possible, likes/dislikes, allergies and special dietary requirements will be catered for, provided you discuss these with Wendy at the time of booking!
During your stay, please feel free to relax in our gardens of one-third of an acre and sit a while on one of the seats provided. There are swings which children are welcome to use but only under supervision by their parents who retain all responsibility for their safety.
There is ample free parking available in the road outside the house, although motorcycles and bicycles could be stored in our garage overnight by prior arrangement.
Attractions:There is an open-air market sprawling through the town every Tuesday all year round. Less than 2 km to the south of Rostrenen runs the Nantes-Brest Canal, which offers tow-path walks in peace and tranquility. Another haven for walkers and cyclists is one of France’s Voie Verte, or green ways. A pleasant and traffic-free path stretches in either direction, 11.5 km east to Gouarec and 9.5 km west to Mael-Carhaix or, for the very brave, 20.5 km to Carhaix, running along the line of a disused railway. The lakes near Glomel, just 5 km away and Lac du Guerledan,15 km, both offer tree-lined shores, picnic spots, water sports and fishing. Further afield, the Montagnes Noires to the south of Carhaix and the Parc Naturel Regional D’Armorique to the northwest and west offer stunning scenery and spectacular views. Other attractions in the area include: Jardins de Kervézennec, Adventure Park at Carhaix, Gorges du Toul Goulic, Gorges du Corong, Abbey of Bon Repos, horse-racing, horse-riding, open-air swimming pool (summer), fishing, golf, many historic towns to visit such as Morlaix, Pontivy or Quimper, and the north, west or south coasts of Brittany are only just over an hour's drive away. Less than 2 km to the south of Rostrenen runs the Nantes-Brest Canal
