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

I am a writer, and my secluded but not isolated cottage in a small hamlet in the magical and beautiful Forêt de Huelgoat, in Finistère, Brittany, is sometimes available to 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.


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.
