There is also a downstairs bathroom/laundry and on the first floor, 2 bedrooms and a WC. This is ideal caretaker accommodation or, if you wish to rent out the manoir, owners' accommodation for letting periods. It is currently successfully let out during the summer, Christmas, etc and produces a very good income. Guest feedback is very positive and they really do have an air of being away from it all and living the high life in such super surroundings. The calm horses currently kept at the property are used for hacking and are a great extra attraction. The property has a stone garage building in good order, around 16m x 6m which could be ideal to use as loose boxes - it depends whether you are more excited by four wheels or four legs! The menage was professionally installed and is a good size at 20m x 30m. It is adjacent to the house and overlooked by the terrace which is ideal. At the side of it is a large open hangar where 6 animals are currently stabled and it's very handy for the tractor, etc. Much of the land is pasture, the current owners estimate around 2 hectares and this is all stock fenced. This is a house to visit if you are looking for an impressive yet comfortable family home, the atmosphere is superb and it is ready for you to enjoy immediately. If you wish to generate an income from the property that is also in place for you. This is one to visit, it's hard to convey in mere words just how very special this home is - do come and have a look. Location The property is 5-10 mins drive from the big sandy bay at Plestin Les Greves. If energetic, you can walk to the sea from the property through the forest along lovely lanes and past chateaux and villages, the coastal path offers stunning views and hidden coves with small sandy beaches. It is a very long but interesting walk or a ride if you prefer and when you arrive there are bars and restaurants to relax in. Alternatively, the pretty harbour of Locquirec is about 15 mins drive. There's river or sea fishing available locally which is a great way to unwind. Situated on the border of Cotes d'Armor and Finistere the manoir is ideally placed for exploring these 2 departments. Finistere is a region of wild rugged coastline, silver sandy beaches and open moorland in the centre, very unspoilt by tourism. The latin name for Finistere (Finis Terrae) means 'World's end', and as it is the furthest westerly point of France, it feels very different to the rest of the country. The Bretons see themselves as being very different to other French people and the Breton language is still spoken by most of the older generation. Cotes d'Armor is equally beautiful with both the Granite Rose and Emerald Coasts along with many exciting towns and pretty villages. Nearby Perros Guirec, Ploumanac' and Lannion are all delightful and the road networks to St Brieuc and Rennes are excellent. The nearest large town is Morlaix, just 15 minutes away it has a picturesque port with many sailing boats and plenty of museums, art galleries and 17th century houses to visit. Also, in August, there is a highly colourful "Art in the Streets" festival, in which street theatre takes place all over the town. The old town is still, in parts, medieval. There is a huge viaduct, made out of the local pink granite and Morlaix has many royal connections. Get here by plane from the UK or Ireland into Brest, Dinard or Rennes airports or take the boat to Roscoff, St Malo or one of the more northerly ports. The TGV is available to Guingamp and the road network is excellent.
