If you are a writer, artist, walker, dreamer, then welcome to Gwynvid!

I am a writer, and my secluded but not isolated cottage in the magical and beautiful Forêt de Huelgoat, in Finistère, Brittany, is sometimes available to rent by others who appreciate tranquility, inspiration and atmosphere.

It’s a typical Breton stone cottage, rather like a Scottish croft; and, like those, it has a loft conversion. I keep the rental fee affordable (and there’s a discount for a booking of two weeks or more).


This enchanted forest, a splinter of the ancient and legendary forest of Brocéliande (setting for so many of the Grail legends) which once extended through much of what is now Brittany (‘Armorica’), is less than an hour’s drive from the ferry port at Roscoff.
