Hayloft Gîte, a holiday cottage for couples in Brittany
For a luxury self catering holiday cottage in Brittany look no further than our Hayloft gite. We like to refer to the Hayloft as a ‘studio’ gîte as it is essentially an open plan holiday cottage. Remember though that size isn’t everything and in line with our ethos at Kergudon, Hayloft ticks all the boxes as a luxury self-catering holiday cottage in brittany. Hayloft is also one of our pet friendly cottages in Brittany.
Kergudon was originally built as a manor house in Saint-Cadou. Over the centuries the property has been a presbytery and a farm. The Hayloft Gîte is one of the original farm buildings and retains much of its historic character making it a perfect holiday cottage brittany for couples.
What’s on offer:
Hayloft is the perfect holiday cottage in brittany for a couple and is perfectly formed with all the features and fittings that our guests have come to expect at Kergudon.

Group and Large Family Holidays in Brittany
As Hayloft Gîte is perfect for a couple it has often been used by large families or groups who have also rented the Priory and/or Granary. We have welcomed several families who have travelled with grandparents who have preferred to use the Hayloft as it has no stairs and provides a ‘quieter’ place to sleep. The Priory and Granary are both large enough for everyone to eat and relax together as a group or family and the Hayloft provides a perfect personal space for when the family has ‘high energy moments’.
As always, Ben & David are available onsite at Kergudon to help with anything and to organise tours and excursions.
