Following unexpected redundancy; too young for retirement and wanting new challenges, we agreed a new home in Brittany could offer the space and more relaxed country lifestyle we had both enjoyed before the family responsibilities and demanding professions!
We both have links with farming and with some renovating experience, we sold our Hampshire home and moved in to our Breton property ‘Penlan Huella’ Nov 2009 - shortly followed by the animals. We hope to bring new life back to the farm and its 7.5 acres of surrounding fields and woodland.We've converted two traditonal stone farm buildings in to holiday Gites.
With our interests in photography, wildlife, farming, animals, gardening and enjoying time and space with family and friends, our new lifestyle is meeting all our objectives.
We wanted rural but not too isolated. Somewhere our family and friends could visit easily without too much travelling or expense and somewhere to keep us busy but nothing over ambitious.
