  • Enjoy a country walk in the grounds of the 15th century Manoir de Kernault (Kernault Manor), where cows, sheep and Breton draft horses graze.

    The Kernault estate and manor are a beautiful illustration of how Breton rural manor houses have developed through the centuries. Set in 30 acres of land, managed using eco-friendly methods, there’s something to see all year round including Breton horses, Scottish cows and Ouessant sheep. Flora, fauna and nature lovers will love roaming around the manor woodlands including the garden wood, the ‘wall-walk’ wood and the ‘winged-serpent’ wood. There’s also an orchard housing a collection of cider-apple varieties. Kernault Manor’s summer programme features storytelling and literary shows and exhibitions all year round. The manor was built in the 15th century and has retained some aspects of gothic architecture including a 16th century house, a 17th century timber-framed granary and an 18th century state room.
