Manoir De Bodion - Self catering holiday cottage accommodation with heated pool to rent in Brittany

Welcome to the Manoir de Bodion website. Manoir De Bodion is a charming 17th Century manor house near Pontivy in rural Brittany.
We can accommodate up to 23 people spread across three holiday cottages which are attached to the main house: Bishops Well Cottage, Chained Heart Cottage and The Coach House. We offer a grand selection of self catering holiday cottages to suit most tastes and budgets and would love to have you come stay.

About Us

The Manoir de Bodion lies in 5 acres of grounds occupying the triangle between the St Thuriau-Plumeliau and Bodion-Moustoir Remungol roads. The grounds at one time formed part of the Manoirs’ home farm and many remnants of the original ‘taluds’ (hedgerows), old walls, communal bread oven and well remain. The boundaries are marked by stately oaks and sweet chestnuts planted when the house was built in 1647.


The gardens provides space and variety and can accommodate almost any holiday activity. There are innumerable picnic spots, both sunny and shady and open grass suitable for games of all sorts from sedate croquet to boisterous football and frizzbees. For nature lovers wild flowers and garden birds are actively encouraged whilst red squirrels and other small mammals are frequently seen.


Guests are invited to explore and enjoy any part of the grounds including the The Pool Garden which is fenced from the Cherry Wood and North Paddock and is overlooked by the Coach House deck. It is laid to lawn and flower beds and bordered by a tree-lined talud from the Badminton Lawn. The bar-b-que for the coach house lies to the side of the deck overlooking the Linden Lawn. Pool loungers for lazing in the sun are provided for everyone and there is ample space for lawn games. The pool measures 6mx12m and tapers from 2m at the deep end to 1m at the shallow end where the steps are located.

What our visitors are saying...

"We stayed at Chained Heart Cottage (sleeps 9 - 10) for 11 nights and we had the vacation of our lives. Marion and Al went out of their way to ensure the success of our family reunion and we were fortunate enough to have the whole property to ourselves during our stay. Beautiful house, gorgeous surroundings, wonderful hosts!"
"We cannot recommend this place enough. theres more space that the photos show. Everything you need for a self catering holiday is available. We are already thinking about a return trip next year. Marion & Alan, proprietors, are the perfect hosts giving any help, advice they can to make your stay an enjoyable one."
"This house is the perfect country getaway for large groups. The pool is perfect and completely enclosed with a child lock. Marion was the perfect host and communication was outstanding all the way, really cannot rate this place highly enough - Already planning next years visit and hopefully will be returning every year!"
"There are several lovely attractions within easy driving distance including the seaside town of Vannes, but children and adults alike were very happy to entertain ourselves in the pool and extensive grounds most days without the want to leave our home from home. We loved it so much we plan on making it an annual trip and hope to be back next summer."
