The Old Bakery is set above the Nantes-Brest Canal and provides an ideal halfway point between Chateaulin and Rostrenen. With many local sites of interest, it's also a great base in its own right – perfect for stopping for a day or two to explore farther afield from the canal and into Brittany's heartland. The more intrepid cyclist can reach here in a day from Mur de Bretagne or via the green route travelling from Huelgoat via Carhaix – both are steeped in history and worth exploring. On arrival you'll be greeted by Dorothy and Gary, the Old Bakery's new owners, who've put cyclists at the heart of their plans for the B&B. They offer light refreshments and safe bike storage, as well as lots of great local info on restaurants, routes and attractions. After a good night's sleep, there's a hearty continental breakfast, including fresh croissants, bread, cheese and ham to set you up for the day. Dorothy and Gary offer flexible accommodation for single riders through to groups of friends or families. Accommodation is provided on a B&B basis, and larger groups of up to 10 or 12 can request exclusive use of the facilities.
