We stayed in Huelgoat for 1 night, and our stay at La Mare aux Fees was comfortable and at a good price. The B&B is right in the middle of town. The room was very spacious and clean, and the bathroom facilities clean and modern. Be aware though that in our room (not sure of others), the toilet is in the same room as the bed, with only a 5 foot screen for privacy. This was fine for us, as we aren't super picky, and it was a good value for the money. We absolutely loved her dogs! One beagle and one english mastiff - both very friendly and adorable. Her dogs are noted on the B&B website, so bad reviews based on this or animal smells are simply unfair. She was flexible with check-in time and served a delicious breakfast. Our only reason for not giving a 5 star review was because of our interaction with the owner. We felt very rushed upon checking in, and she seemed to be in a great hurry to get back to what she was doing. After breakfast we did speak a bit about our travels and backgrounds, but up until that point we did not feel 100% welcome. Overall, we would recommend staying here.
I drove up from Spain and stopped with Sheri at La Mare aux Fées, The Pond of Fairies, to wait for the ferry at Roscoff. It's very handy for that. I had two dogs with me and Sheri loves dogs so she was very accommodating and and put bedding down for them to sleep on and a bowl of water in the room. The rooms have their own wash areas now which is very handy. The dogs went crazy in the garden as they'd just spent three days on the road; they loved it. It's long, goes down the hill with paths and bushes and places to explore and lawns, seats. It's fully fenced so if I needed to leave them there a while Sheri was happy to keep an eye on them. I did leave them to nip down to the patisserie in the square and buy a couple of those tarts and small cakes that the French do so well. Huelgoat has lots of good walks for dogs in the forest and around the village and lake and I recommend la Mare aux Fées if you're travelling with your favourite canine. It's a stress free break.
Two of us stayed here for the night with our English speaking hostess. The beds were fine, the room was fine, the view from the room was nice. The price was right and the breakfast was fantastic! I'm rating it very high for service, rooms and value for a B&B. It's not the Marriott Marquis, but then that's why you're looking at B&Bs.
A great B&B, well situated, very near the centre of town, with excellent views front and back over the rooftops. Good value for money. Everything I hoped for. The shared shower (on the second floor) also has a toilet; the owner is in the process of installing en suite facilities, and our study group had all been told what facilities were currently available. The owner’s dog is docile, well trained and has real character. I found him charming. Food was excellent throughout: splendid breakfasts; freshly made tasty sandwiches; first rate dinners included mussels, quiche, beautiful cheese and wine - and crepes cooked in front of me. I even got to cook my own! The owner knows the locality very well, and is an experienced hotelier. The B&B is clean and well run. I hope to return soon with my family.
This little B&B in run, very efficiently, by the delightful Sherri. She provided us with fresh baked bread, croissants and jam for breakfast, delicious packed lunches and wonderful 3/4 course evening meals - an excellent cook!
It's situated just minutes from the town centre where there are several shops, cafes, restaurants and bars plus some very good art galleries. A few more minutes walk takes you to the pretty lake and wonderful walks nearby.
Sherri gave us lots of information on trips and cultural events and couldn't have been more helpful
My en suite room was clean and extremely comfortable ..many thanks Sherri !
