September '17
We had a lovely time in your nice house. Everyone enjoyed the pool, walks along the estuary and the views. Concarneau and Locronan were definitely worth a visit. Weather was good and Sabre, the German Shepherd, enjoyed the garden.

July '17 - All 9 of us had a wonderful week celebrating our 70th birthdays. The house and pool were perfect, the weather could have been better but didn't stop us exploring the wonderful beaches and sampling the great seafood. One day hopefully we will return and will certainly recommend Estuary House to our friends. Thank you. Martin family (Camridgeshire)

June '17 - We love the house and the pool and Estery. We swam in the pool every day and we went kayaking and tried to go fishing but we didn't catch any fish. We'll be back, thank you. Zac, Izzy, Isla, Emilia (East Sussex)

May '17 - A fantastic 2 weeks of (mostly) glorious sunshine in this special place. We have enjoyed the pool and garden and will miss the beautiful views of the estuary. Highlights of our trip include Oceanopolis, Concarneau, Pentrez plage, Plage l'Aber and a stunning walk at Pointe de Dinan. Crepes and meals in Le Faou lovely too. Thank you. Buckley family (Stockport)

April '17 - Thank you for a wonderful week in your lovely home. The children all loved the pool and swam at least once a day. We really appreciated how thoughtfully appointed the house is. Highlights for us included Quimper, the lovely winding streets of the old town in Concarneau, the stunning beach at Pentrez, pizza from Le Faou and the theme park. A wonderful family week away, we're sorry to leave! Tripp family (Berkshire)

October '16 - What a wonderful house, a great stay with lovely friends, swimming in pool, beaches, food & wine - couldn't ask for more. Thank you. Coral (Plymouth)

What a wonderful time we have had. Great house and great company. Feeling relaxed and refreshed although we have eaten and drunk far too much. Job done I say, thank you for a wonderful long w/end break. Heather & Matthew (Plymouth)

September '16 - Loved returning to this wonderful house and location, thoroughly relaxed and enjoyed our stay. Jones family (Okehampton, Devon)

Within the context of a remarkable group holiday, our memories linger of market day around the cathedral in Quimper; medieval splendour and very scrumptious crepe in Concarneau; cliff top hikes and sparkling seas at Point Pen-Hir; lunch on the quayside in Camaret; marvelling at history and the views over Brest from Point d'Espagnol; marvelling at the architecture of Chateaulin; endless views of sea and sky from Point Dinard; long walks on empty beaches at Pentrez Plage. Add to that the splendid company of friends; the welcome & beer at the Donegal Bar, and the charm of the setting of Estuary House. WE WILL RETURN! Beacock party (East Yorkshire)

We enjoyed the house, pool and location. Weather was kind for our group of 10 bikers from Wiltshire. Looker party (Wiltshire)

A wonderful location for the three generations to stay. The walk into Le Faou was just right as it burnt off the calories needed for the breakfast. Lovely acccommodation, thank you. Arthurs family (Devon)

August '16 - 7 adults and 4 children fitted very well in your well-appointed house. Mixed weather but used the pool every day and the long garden was heaven for the children. Best beach Morgat, best beach for surfing Le Goulien. Le Club des Onzes! (Devon)

We all had a wonderful time here at Estuary House. The children really enjoyed the pool and were able to make the most of it with the fabulous weather!! We hope we will return one day! Lots of laughs and happy memories. Thank you so much. Tuckley family (West Sussex)

Well, finding what matched our wants on the internet was one thing, but then to find this house is exactly as advertised was great. This house has everything and is so big we were like loose peas! BBQ is great, many meals on the verandah. The local area is magnificent too and the numerous beaches all so well kept and clean. Truly a wonderful holiday and will recommend to others. Holland family (Isle of Man)

July '16 - We have had a lovely week here. We all loved the pool and garden. We went to a few markets and a festival on the sea, the festival was all about the sea and sealife. One day we went into Quimper and it was lovely even though it was a bit rainy. We spent most of our time in the garden. Thanks for a lovely holiday. Stewart family (Edinburgh)

Fabulous holiday, wonderful scenery, great house. We all had a great holiday, the dogs loved it too. We will be back! Ridgway family (Sheffield)

June '16 - Our best evenings were spent making dinner at home and then wandering down to the Estuary with a bottle of wine. The peace and quiet with light until 10.30pm was heaven. We hope that you enjoy your stay as much as we have! MacDonnell family (Edinburgh and USA)

Christmas '15 - We've had a wonderfully indulgent Christmas at Estuary House, very peaceful, and we are leaving fully refreshed to face the New Year. The house is extremely clean and well-equipped and very comfortable. Five stars!!! Would recommend Les Halles and the pizzeria next door for uncomplicated and good value food. We also had an excellent lunch at Le Prieuré in Locronan and at Cote Mer in Cameret-sur-Mer. Hope to be back one day! Anne & Phil (Devon)

October '15 - Really do not want to leave, what a wonderful house and location. We will certainly miss the view! Evie (20 months) enjoyed the swings, pool, garden & local beaches. Indi & Ana (border collies) enjoyed the garden, estuary and local forest. Would love to return next year, thank you for a wonderful holiday. Jones family (Okehampton, Devon)

September '15 - For a group of budding artists, their friends and 'other halves' this has been a great house and outlook. The fact that we have been lucky enough to have a wonderful week's worth of hot sun has been an enormous bonus. The pool has oc course, been used on a daily basis and been wonderfully refreshing. We have all had a really lovely week here and all the stairs have in fact been a bonus - one doesn't feel quite so guilty about the next G&T or glass of wine, knowing that one will soon be 'burning it off'! Jewell family & friends (Launceston)

(Dictated by my 94, yes, 94 year old father) When we entered the lounge and saw the view from the French windows, breathtaking!! The dogs, Bertha and Tubbs loved the garden, and the apples! Lots of useful equipment in the kitchen + the massive spice drawer. Gunson family (Truro, Cornwall)

August '15 - What an unexpected pleasure - the house and garden are really well equipped with some very useful additions. The Brasserie Les Halles was lovely, good food, great ambiance and local, we'd definitely recommend it. The local bakery is great for croissants - really delicious. We will all go away with great memories of laughter and joy. Thank you. Garn family (Somerset)

Great house, great pool, all extremely well equipped - everything you could need and more. Weather was fairly awful but we had a couple of good days and it didn't prevent us from using the pool and having a really good time. Highlights "La Fregate' creperie in Le Faou - excellent. Local cider from the cider farm also in Le Faou. Morgat, Pentrez Plage (good body boarding for the kids - and their father). We've loved it all. Many thanks. Metcalf family (Leeds)

July '15 - we are a family group aged 86 years-2 years and there was something here for everyone. The guide books were excellent. The weather has not been kind to us, but we have used the pool several times and all enjoyed it. Mears family (Bournemouth)

Beautiful house, extremely well equipped with everything we needed to make our stay very enjoyable. The views are just stunning & the gardes fabulous - the children (all 6 from age 5-12) loved the space as did the 2 labradors! We loved the BBQ and ate outside at every opportunity. A fantastic holiday and a truly lovely house. Thank you. :) Robertson family (Beds/Bucks/Oxon)

So long, Estuary House. We have had a wonderful time here. It was the perfect spot for our family get together to celebrate a special birthday. La Frégate in Le Faou is well worth the hype but either book or get there early, we arrived at 12.20 and everyone after us got turned away! It was the only place we had a crepe for main and dessert. They're that good. All the info has been invaluable and brilliantly presented. Ayrden, Dickerson, Pavely families (Norfolk, Cheshire, Herts & NYC)

June '15 - To celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary, we decided to share Estuary House with family and friends. It could not have been a better choice, the weather, scenery and company were excellent. Kathy & Glen were part of the group and it is thanks to them that these two weeks were so successful. J&J (Bridgwater)

May '15 - Birds seen from the balcony: Little Egret, 2 x Whimbrel, 1 x Spoonbill, 2 x Redshank, Grey Heron, 5 Mute Swans, 6 Shelduck and 5 Mallard seen on the estuary.

Went to Brière, well worth a visit, saw Blackwing Stilt, Sacred Ibis, Coypu, Great White Egret, Black Kite, Black Tern and Whiskered Tern and lots of Marsh Harriers. A good day's birding! Guide books were excellent, got to know the real Brittany - Thank you. Brown family

April '15 - Thanks for the Easter Eggs!! Our third Easter at Estuary House and, like last year, we were lucky enough to have warm & sunny weather. The last few days have been very hot, we were glad to have the awnings for some protection! As usual, the family has enjoyed the beautiful empty beaches. The pool and garden have put to good use and we have been glad to see the trees bursting into bloom this week inviting lots of garden birds. Hancock family (East Sussex)

October '14 - What a wonderful well-equipped house. Out of this world, changing scenery, wonderful informative area-information books, well worth a read before planning any visits. Staying home is also possible to chillax around the pool or having local cider at full tide down by the water. Ann and Wim (Belgium)

Woof, woof, wooverty, woof, woo, woo, woo. Scruggles, cuddles and licks from Ruff, Tessa and Beaga xx

September '14 - Wonderful holiday at Estuary House - so much time was spent on the water, swimming in the pool, a number of beaches and the estuary. One highlight was swimming at dawn in the estuary at high tide under a full moon! Other highlights were swimming and kayaking at Morgat, body boarding at Pentrez Plage, surfing at La Palue, the maritime museum at Douarnenez, and the beautiful cool city of Quimper. Above all, the house was delightful. Brilliant setting, well equipped, plenty of room. Tremendous. Le Page family (Guernsey)

May '14 - I would like to say a HUGE thank you for letting us stay at the AMAZING Estuary House. For a start, the list of the fabulous features - the pool - I spent every day whatever the weather in the heated pool. Sometimes my brother and Dad came in, but I was always first as well as last. This is the list of the best features of the house: Views, pool, garden, informatioin books, films and much much more! I wish I could stay for longer but everything good often has to end. Adele aged 11 (Guernsey)

10 bikers from Gloucestershire on a return visit - had a great time - despite getting waterlogged on Thurs! Beautiful house, beautiful views. Will definitely return again!

If you are reading this you will already be enchanted by Estuary House, it's quite a decision to explore the area or stay close, use the pool or watch the tides ebb and flow. Lac du Drennec, east of Sizun, is a good day out for all tastes. Bird life, fishing, water sports or just yomping around the lake. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we have. Legg family (Lincolnshire)

August '13 - Lots of new, happy memories. Spent a week jumping in the pool and laughing. Loved the house, pool and garden. Sad to leave, but happy we came....... Lloyd family

April '13 - We all, grandparents included, swam (in wetsuits) in the pool. Temperature of water 11º-14º, air temperature about 7º - an invigorating experience after the initial shock. We were grateful for the lovely hot showers and the jacuzzi bath! A wonderful family holiday.

September '12 - We all had a wonderful holiday in your beautiful house. The views are stunning and when the sun did come out to play the time spent around the pool was fantastic. Pool could have been warmer but all in all a lovely, relaxing get away holiday, sad to be leaving xxx Letchford family (Kent) Really sorry about pool temp but any heat exchanger's ability is limited by the ambient temperature and if that's low then unfortunately it will struggle to get the pool to 27º, still a swimmable temperature though! :o)

The local fish and seafood are as good as it gets. The oyster opener is the best I have found! Strowger family (Hertfordshire)

August '12 - What was great for us as always a treat was returning to Estuary House after a long day out. The town is so pretty, the house is so comfortable, and sitting on the balcony or down by the water's edge with a bottle of something was just perfect! Tyrrelll family (London and Louisiana)

Plage de l'aber - fantastique beach avec beaucoup des coquilles (shells). Good luck finding them - they're currently on their way back to make Christmas gifts for all the family, friends and colleagues....Remordina and Wass families (Kent)

Delicious and friendly lunch at the fish shack over the river! Fabulous trips to Quimper, Morgat, Locronan. Delicious croissants every day from the bakery - definitely try the macarons. Yummy crepes everywhere. Perfect hol - thanks for having us! Milson family (Buckinghamshire)

July '12 - Our parents were really pleased to be allowed to land their helicopter in your garden, (it's true, they did!) will send you the photographs!

La journee de hier ete magnifique et ensoleille, et les jours precedents la chaleur de la famille reunie a compense largement le manque de soleil.

Translation: Not to be missed - Walking at low tide, collecting oysters and savouring them in great company. All these elements enabled us to have an excellent visit! Nadine (Belgium)

June '12 - Quite a few trips out, Locronan was quaint and the Pointe du Raz on the same day was a super walk and views. Had a special meal in La Viellle Renommee for Phil's 70th birthday. We watched the Diamond Jubilee celebrations - had banners, balloons & Royal masks. The Guide Books were very extensive & interesting to read. Le Faou has lovely bakers & butchers and vans selling fish and strawberries. We all loved watching the tide coming in & out and relaxing with a glass of wine and our dear friends. Had a lovely meal at L'Hermitage. Sutton family (Tavistock)

Meal at L'Hermitage on our last full day was really special. Madame's eyelashes entered the restaurant before she had left the kitchen. Estuary tides are hypnotic. Fresh mushrooms daily just to right of pool although one doesn't go far for 10 breakfasts. Thomas family (Tavistock)

Had a great week, fabulous place for a group of friends to holiday together. We've had many wonderfu meals in this house, made easy by having a wonderfully equipped kitchen. Would definitely recommend to other friends. (Tavistock)

We have had a great week here to celebrate my 65th birthday, it will be a holiday to talk about in the winter months. Lovely views, lovely pool, lovely home. All your wonderful books give information for any and all age groups. A big thank you. Maguire family (Swindon)

May '12 - A truly spectacular holiday retreat just perfect for those 'special' family occasions. Idyllic surroundings and magnificent views of the estuary. It is seldom that expectations are exceeded but on this occasion - a triumph. Warner family (Essex)

April '12 - The house is even more splendid than the pictures depict. It is so well equipped for a large family gathering and the view of the estuary is mind-blowing!!! I have just spent the most amazing week here with my fantastic family to celebrate my 60th birthday, I couldn't have wished for a better place to spent it and we will talk about, laugh and remember the experience for years to come (well, until my 70th that is!) Thank you so much! Alexander family (Cheshire)

Lovely memories - looking at eh craters on the moon through the telescope - apple blossom - primroses and violets, all sunlit - birdsong - and that view over the estuary! Thank you! Val (London)

March '12 - The food shopping in Brittany is such a joy, the cooks in our family (our two sons) have been inspired to achieve memorable meals.

Our final evening was spent at Les Halles - a fantastic meal to say farewell to Le Faou. Upton family (Gloucester)

Thank you for a wonderful holiday in a beautifully appointed and very comfortable home! The little ones loved the pool + the beach - the grown ups loved the view. The fish restaurant along the estuary - Viviers de Terenez is an extra special recommendation. We will miss this lovely place but most of all, we will miss the view. Thomas family (Suffolk)

April '11 - A fantastic sun-filled week for the 13 of us with extensive use of the pool and garden (water temp 29.5º). The Easter bunny also managed to hide 100 eggs, a delight to see the Shelducks and Llittle Egrets feeding first thing in the morning. Shaw family (Hertfordshire)

March '11 - This is my last day in Estuary House and I don't want to leave, what will I miss the most? Without a doubt the fantastic view of the river, ever changing, so incredibly peaceful and certainly beautiful. Peacham family (Dartmouth)

Christmas '10 - Nous venons de passer une semaine inoubliable dans la" maison de l'Estuaire".
Comme je l'ai dit à vôtre maman, c'est la première fois qu'en location, j'ai vraiment l'impression d'être chez moi, c'est à dire qu'il ne manquait rien absolument rien dans aucune pièce. Famille Briolay - (France) Translation: We've just spent an unforgettable week in Estuary House. It really felt like I was at home, that is to say that there was nothing that I missed in any of the rooms.

October '10 - The kitchen is the best equipped of any place we've stayed. Le Faou is so well located. How about a trade of homes, we're all in Vancouver..... Green-Newlight family (Canada)

September '10 - House more than we could have believed from the photos. Lovely beaches. Lots of wildlife watching - gulls, herons, rabbits, fish, crabs, birds of prey. Moon watching, cow watching, people watching. A great holiday - the weeks sped by. Munns family - (Salisbury)

August '10 - The pool was a big hit with everyone at all hours even our Nan who is 82! Star spotting was amazing - we made good use of the hammock. Vercesi family (Cornwall)

July '10 - We've all had a really fantastic time doing a mixture of relaxing & not so relaxing activities! The pool is superb. We got to use it every day and a good size to swim in & not just get wet. Great restaurant in the village (Les Halles) and nice bar with TV where we watched the World Cup Final. Phythian family (Cheshire)

We enjoyed very much the local community, the swimming pool was a delight and the river view was ever stunning. Thank "U" . The Magnificent "Ocean 11"

The house is wonderful and the location is superb. We just loved spending time on the decks looking at the ever-changing views of the estuary. The locals were all very friendly and helpful too. We thought your folders were great - such a lot of work - thanks. The market at Daoulas was amazing - such a variety of delicious food, clothing, jewellery, plants etc. However the highlight was probably 'le cochon grillé' on Friday - when we joined in with all the locals at tables in the square and ate roast pig, veges, bread and tarte aux pommes with Breton beer and danced to a local band! Torkington family (NZ)

We have enjoyed our stay in this delightful house, very well equipped, everyone had great fun in the pool.

June '10 - A lovely stay. Fantastic weather, great BBQs, lovely beaches and towns, fabulous seafood. Thank you for a great holiday. Andrews family

You have a wonderful house in a glorious setting. The house was very comfortable, thank you and very well stocked too. The week went far too quickly, of course; a brilliant time was had by all, especially by our grand-daughter (17months) who is a 'water baby' and didn't want to get out of the pool! The weather was fantastic and, dare I say it, even a little too hot ( mid 30's), so we stayed close to the pool to keep cool

May '10 - A lovely stay. Fantastic weather, great BBQs, lovely beaches & towns, fabulous seafood. We loved the large garden & pool - and the nosy, inquisitive cows! Thank you for a lovely holiday. Andrews family

September 09 - Thank you for accommodating us in your super house for the past 2 weeks. We have had a truly restful break.
At 8 months pregnant, this was just what the Doctor ordered. Running around after a 14 month old is never easy but to be able to sit back and watch my husband finally unwind and relax after a demanding year’s work and thoroughly enjoy his ‘baby’ boy before number 2 is well and truly on the scene was simply magical.
They loved splashing about in the pool - something we don’t get the chance to do at home because of the high levels of chlorine in most public swimming pools which aggravates his eczema. I on the other hand, thoroughly enjoyed lounging on the huge sofas and relaxing in the jacuzzi bath.
You have thought of everything and anyone who stays here couldn’t want for more. Smith family

August 09 - Once again we spent an enjoyable time in your house, revisiting some of the walks we took last time and searching out new beaches. Our grandchildren loved the pool. This time our family group was complete, and all nine of us were able to come. The birdlife in the estuary is amazing - we have never seen so many curlews in one place! Fairlie family (Durham)

Thank you very much for letting us stay in your spectacular home, we really enjoyed playing in the pol and siting on the hammock, the views were amazing and I loved having a look through the telescope and I’m sure I’m going to miss sitting down at the bench and looking at the estuary. Tonight we saw 10 bunny rabbits bouncing and playing together and we saw lots of birds when the tide was out.
PS - we enjoyed talking to the cows! And a new friend Burnie the pigeon, he built his nest right next to the house! Katie aged 11, going on 12....... (Doncaster)

Thank you or letting us stay in your beautiful house, ample room for 9 of us. Kids & adults really enjoyed the pool and pool toys. The view is fantastic, couldn’t take our eyes off it. Made use of the BBQ a couple of times. The house is so well equipped with everything you could need. Kids loved watching the cows and rabbits and even a kestrel in the garden. Loved using the binocs and the telescope, will be sad to leave the fantastic view. Thanks again for everything. Sharpe, Warner and Carr families (Doncaster)

July 09 - Dear Kathy, Thank you very much for the lovely house - it was perfect for us - two families with 7 children all together. Our children loved swimming in the warm pool and playing in the beautiful garden. In the evenings we profited from the well equipped! kitchen and cooked all together (11 persons). Schuth Family (Germany)

Nice local cider, better than Normandy! Hope to come back to the area soon. Some problems with the oven and microwave but I’m sure they’ll be sorted tout de suite! (Edit - all fixed the next day) Look forward to coming back! Ketteringham family

June 09 - Wow......what an amazing house + area! We have had a fantastic time and didn't want to leave. The space is great and the house is clean enough to eat off the floor! Everything is thought of and provided which made for an excellent stay. We are so grateful for the feasability of a 4-day stay and slightly early arrival. Will recommend to everyone + we were the envy of all at the conference when we showed the pictures! Thank you so much! Plymouth Cystic Fibrosis Team (Plymouth)

Your website and first-hand reports suggested this house to be something special! It has surpassed all expectations!
What a magical setting, geared to give all ages a truly memorable holiday. It’s the first time we have attempted a holiday ‘toute en famille’ and we could not have found a more delightful spot.

Thank you for the care you evidently take to make it such an all entrancing/comfortable experience. We are enchanted with the estuary, landscape, and the unbelievable birdsong...... Wardle family

May 09 - What a fantastic holiday we have all had. Despite a bit of rain the first week the sun came out in force the 2nd week and the pool was used every day! The library is fantastic and we all found something of interest. Great communal areas where we had many a game of cards. All the recommended places to visit were visited and enjoyed. The pizzeria restaurant in Le Faou was frequented along with the restaurant next door to it which did amazing steak. The staff in both eateries were friendly and helpful. We all had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable holiday and seeing as the sun is shining again today, we are sorry to leave. I'm sure we will be back!! Kay family (S. Wales)

We have had a brilliant week. The house was a home from home and had everything we could ask for. The kids have grown fins! They made full use of the pool. The weather was wonderful and we have made the most of every minute. We would fully recommend the beaches around Camaret sur Mer, Concarneau and the boys enjoyed the many golf courses around Concarneau. Many thanks Kathy - we will be recommending the house to our friends and hope to visit again soon. Maudsley, Baker and Newell famiies (Guildford)

August 08 - We so enjoyed your lovely house, amazingly well equipped and thought-out in every way. The highlight for me was my 70th birthday dinner at Les Viviers de Terenez, where we all feasted on lobster, crab and oysters. The house held all 12 of us with the greatest of ease. The Sunday antique market in the Crozon yielded many treasures. Smail family (London)

First time in Brittany & had a wonderful time although some days were a bit damper than we would have chosen. Estuary House is to be envied in its location & amenities, not a day went by without the pool being used. Tyler family (S. Yorkshire)

July 08 - We've had a fabulous couple of weeks, with almost unbroken hot and sunny weather. The house is wonderful to be in: or rather, be outside of, sitting around one of the tables, swimming in the pool or reading on one of the loungers. Even though we've felt slightly guilty about it, there have been days on end where we haven't wanted to move from this lovely environment. Jacob (11 yrs old) managed 70 laps of the pool; we don't know if anyone's managed more so far, but issue this as a challenge to future children! Buckton family (Cambridge)

October 07 - Well - for the time of year, the first half of the week was reasonable and fairly warm - but Wednesday onwards it has been like mid-summer! Hot - swimming in the pool and sunbathing. What a lovely position this is - gorgeous views. The stairs were a fag - but worth it! Quimper and Concarneau (as you said) were well worth the drive and Faou is a nice little village too with a good atmosphere. All in all - a lovely restful week - we could stay longer. Buffy the fox terrier says a big 'woof' for the doggie chews! Prett family (Poole)

September 07 - Thankyou so much! We have had the best time! The house is amazing - so well equipped - a real home from home! The children thoroughly enjoyed the heated pool and playing in the beautiful garden.We had real fun cooking in the kitchen and despite eating so well, have all returned with super toned thighs after climbing the stairs :-) Concluding comments (ha ha) WE WILL BE BACK!! Pearce family (Devon)

August 07 - To Kathy, Thankyou for letting us stay in your house. I loved being in the pool xx Holly - aged 11 Lovely weather all week. Pool was nice and warm at times, (edit - pool is now heated!) but all round great holiday xx (Gemma - aged 13) The pool was great fun. Thanks for a brilliant week. (Chloe - aged 10)

We've all had a lovely holiday. Thank you for such a well-equipped, easily maintained house. Brilliant to have so many loos and bathrooms. The situation is beautiful, we had a very good family party. Thank you. Findlay family (Scotland)

July 07 - Evenings almost always started with white wine and oysters (we even found oysters in the estuary) in the garden or on the balcony. From the swimmimg pool there has been laughter and joy not only once or twice but at least 3 or 4 times a day. We're glad we chose this house to celebrate our mother's/mother-in-law's/grandma's 70th birthday. Brandsma family (Sweden)

Many thanks for everything. The house was ideal for our group; while the weather was not pefect, the view always was! What a great base for exploring Brittany - we intend to return one day soon. Zaiane family ( Canada & France)

I love your Hose it should be a Hotel. The swimming pool was warm all the time. I also liked the rose on the tree. PS - the view was Grate! Shannon - aged 7

The grandchildren especially enjoyed the pool as did we. Coincidentally like your earlier guests this was a family holiday to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday. We enjoyed the Crozon Peninsula, especially the cliff walks and beaches near Camaret. Fairlie family (Durham)

June 2007 - A wonderful house with many beautiful locations nearby to explore, I would suggest Locronan, a lovely village with winding streets to explore. Concarneau has a walled town with one of the best creperies. But if you are feeling lazy I'm sure you'll find the house itself is more than enough to keep you happy. I was particularly fascinated by the tide clock, watching the ebb and flow of the tide is very relaxing. Goodrick family (Brighton)

May 07 - The boys certainly made the most of the pool! Quimper market is worth a visit - found some horse meat for the Barbeque. Thanks for a fantastic holiday. Nicholson family (Saltash, Cornwall)

April 07 - We have had the most amazing weather this week so enjoyed the garden, estuary, local beaches and walks. What a perfect home for a family holiday! We have all fallen in love with the house - so much space, even with 11 of us there was plenty of room to do our own thing. The view is fantastic, weather has been as hot as summer. We will certainly recommend Estuary House to friends. Caruana family (Norfolk, Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Brighton)

March 2007 - What a brilliant place to chill. The rooms are gorgeous and the house is really welcoming. When we were able to tear ourselves away from the balcony and views over the estuary, there are some great places to visit. Ryall-Harvey family (Merseyside, N. Wales,Birmingham & London)

February 2007 - Thank you for letting me stay in your amazing house! Me and Nicki think that it could be a hotel. And I really don't want to leave! Lauren - aged 12 (Plymouth)

Thank you so much for giving me a few days of Heaven, I have so enjoyed everything and didn't think I'd be able to be so energetic!! Jean (Ivybridge)

Un grand merci pour ces quelques jours " á l'oeil" que j'ai très apprécié. Nathalie (Exmouth)

New Year '06 - We all had a brilliant time in Estuary House, facilties were excellent and the views fantastic, brilliant for birdwatching, every detail well thought of. Had an excellent 10 course meal New Year's Eve in the local Hotel. Gillard family (Devon)

September 2006 - What a fabulous house! We really enjoyed it, a real 'Home from Home'. We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay and are very thankful of the facilities you provided! Thanks again, we will certainly recommend to all our friends and intend to stay for a longer period in 2007. Our very best regards, John and Micheline and family (Plymouth)

PS - What a wonderful place, the brilliant sunshine took us by surprise as we visited the surrounding areas, Concarneau with it's magical feel and history, Locronan with it's cobbled streets, grand Cathedral and little boutiques. The bay of Douarnenez left us breathless by it's beauty!

At Plouganvelin near Le Conquet we discovered a fabulous restaurant called 'Hostellerie de la Pointe St Matthieu (restaurant gastronomique), one hour's drive but well worth it, expensive.......but superb, a memorable experience. We look forward to our next visit, and please do not miss QUIMPER!! Thank you Kathy and Glen. Micheline

August 2006 - Great house, four floors, now very fit!! Have visited most of the places you recommend but still chilled!! Kids loved the pool, the dolphin is now called 'Dolgus'. Daughter appreciated the box set of Friends videos, many hours of happy viewing. Loved watching the tide coming in and out, very relaxing. Mostly we have just read, watched DVDs, ate, drank and been merry, but very enjoyable. Oh and swimming in the pool!! Many thanks. Waters family (Stratford-on-Avon)

July 2006 - Lovely relaxing house for a lovely relaxing holiday. Can thoroughly recommend Oceanopolis, Menez Mehr, Quimper, Locronan and Daoulas Abbey for interesting trips out. Abbit family (Cumbria)

The last time I came to Brittany I was around 3 years old, almost 10 years ago. This holiday has reminded me how amazing it is here.  James - aged 12

I have enjoyed going in the pool and I have enjoyed going on the shore. Lucy - aged 7

June 2006 - The Pioneers! We would just like to say how lovely your French home is, how beautifully refurbished, and how perfect for a really relaxing holiday in the most peaceful, beautiful surroundings. We have already started to recommend it to others, most of whom are green with envy when we describe our wonderful week at Estuary House. We're looking into squatter's rights in France! Lin, Bob, Helen, Brian, Marian and Bob (Plymouth and South Woodford )
