Generally, cheaper ferry crossings are those further east around Calais which leads to a longer drive on the continent however, the roads tend to be quieter and the petrol cheaper.

Originally from London, we (Ben & Dave) bought Kergudon in January 2015. We stayed at Kergudon as guests in April 2014 and instantly fell in love with the property and the village. As we were keen to find a different pace to life Kergudon seemed like the perfect solution. Life in London was fabulous but we were attracted here by the peace and solitude of the unspoilt countryside which is rare to find.
We chose the Monts D’Arrée in Finistère as it gave us this and much more. This part of France is extremely varied with wild heathland, rolling green farmland, dense forest and amazing coastal scenery all within 30 minutes. We are ideally located to access the north, west and south coasts of Brittany, all of which have their own special characters. Also, being so close to the coast gives Finistère another of its attractions – fantastic seafood.
The people of Finistère are very welcoming, and we are lucky enough to live in a village with a very active Comite des Fetes who organise regular activities which give a real taste of Breton culture at the many Fest Noz and other events.
We spend most of 2015 renovating the cottages as they were all in a poor state. We now spend our time working hard in the gardens which is an ongoing project and will take many years. Most of 2017 was taken up with the main construction of our Grange which houses our family and kids games room.
Ben loves working in hospitality and enjoys interacting with the guests at Kergudon. Ben is a keen gardener and craftsman. Ben built our Grange almost entirely on his own and it has been one of his favourite projects. You will always find Ben around the Kergudon grounds hard at work with some job or other. Ben is usually accompanied by our two Springer Spaniels, Garratt and Brandon, and there will more than likely be the dark shadow of our cat, Mouse, lurking close by in a bush. Ben’s career started in the Royal Navy before moving to London to pursue a career in finance and most recently hospitality at Kergudon.
Dave also loves working in hospitality and is an enthusiastic cook. Dave is most likely found in the kitchen at Kergudon when he is onsite. At other times Dave also works a few hours each week instructing group fitness classes at a gym in Morlaix. Dave has continued with his Personal Training career in France and has created a small studio fitness room at Kergudon in the old Dairy building. Since childhood Dave has always loved France, French culture, food and the way of life. Kergudon has become the perfect place to live this dream and it is a real pleasure to share this will guests throughout the holiday seasons.
Together Ben & Dave’s favourite past times are walking the dogs which gives them the perfect opportunity to explore the wonderful sites, villages and coastline in Finistère and the whole of Brittany.
