Guest review for our one bedroom luxury cottage in Brittany, Elaine and Peter" “ Smashing Holiday ” 5 out of 5 stars. Reviewed by Elaine and Peter (Bath) in July 2018
" This is actually our second visit to Orchid Barn and we are sure it wont be our last! We enjoyed our 10 day stay tremendously and are sorry to leave. Orchid Barn itself is the nicest holiday rental we have stayed in. We particularly like the garden as it is so wonderfully private and sunny and great for relaxing in. It is so therapeutic to listen to birdsong and watch the bees and butterflies, lovely to experience proper quiet and proper darkness. Amazingly comfy bed, the hot tub and the welcome hamper - the list of superlatives goes on.
Our hosts are what has made this an exceptional holiday. They have been friendly and attentive, making sure that we had the nicest experience possible, offering tips for days out and things to see. We have had a smashing holiday, we DO NOT want to go back home. Thank goodness there is a saying from my part of the country: Haste Ye Back! We certainly intend coming back for another visit. Thank you for a lovely stay"
