Spend a day in a Breton farm from 1850 !

In this well preserved setting a fun and modern visitor experience awaits you. Ideal for young and old alike, come along and experience the day-to-day lives of our ancestors.

A fun experience : learn while enjoying yourself, whatever your age ! Try your hand at a treasure hunt and enjoy the play area with 17 Breton games.

A living farm : Seeing is one thing, taking part is something altogether different ! Participate in the activities, including discovering the animals, feeding them, and moorland milling.

A great time for all : Give your senses a treat ! Taste the butter, the pancakes, and listen to the noises of the washerwomen'slaundry beetles. Feel the textureof the wool.

Quite an enjoyable afternoon, particularly the outdoor, historical games. I think I enjoyed them more than my daughter. Simple, wooden and metal games, but compelling. Not as big as Beamish or the Black Country museum but a pleasant afternoon. The English audio guide helps to understand what each building was used for, but wandering round in the sun, and stopping... More

This is a great day out to a Breton working museum. The kids (and adults) will enjoy it. Plenty to keep everyone occupied too.

Spent a good 3 hours here and the whole family had a great time. Lots of fun with the traditional Bretton games and looking at the animals. Food in the café wasn't great - perhaps just buy bread and cakes from the on-side market stall.. The information boards and staff role-play is all in French so we couldn't get the... More

Spent a pleasant couple of hours exploring the beautifully restored village. Easy to really understand what life was like. Like other reviewers have said, you should buy some bread and gateaux de Breton, delicious!

We were offered english audio that gave a story of two achient britan's who lived in the village. We arrived around 11.30 and despite a few large groups holding up the progression of the story we found the walk informative and interesting and could be taken at our own pace and would advise others if they wanted to could have...

We loved our afternoon at Poul Fetan. The staff were all charming and took time to explain everything despite their English not being perfect (likewise my French.) We loved the crepe made in the house over an open fire and then smothered in rich local butter. Our boys were particularly taken by the traditional Breton games and we spent ages... More

Our visit has been quite pleasing. The people there are really involved in their jobs and we learned a lot while we were having fun with their demonstration and their stories. The traditional games were a hit with our young girls (6, 6 and 9). Our teen girl (15) had some fun, but she was not as enthousiastic as the... More

This is a recreation of a village in the last 200 years. Right down to the people. This is no dead museum but a living recreation of village life at the time. Things like washing clothes, preparing food making cloth. The on site potter does some lovely stuff, well worth a look. Will keep even the most computer addicted kids... More

To be honest after reading the other reviews we were expecting more. The site is small and the farm buildings, whilst interesting, were rapidly seen. The best bit for our children (ages 9 and 6) was the small area where they were able to play old fashioned games - bowling, stilt walking and an interesting game akin to snakes and... More

What a fascinating trip. Really well presented by costumed guides. I felt touched by the presence of centuries of peasants lives. Good, reasonably priced food. Make sure you come away with one of the rustic loafs - still warm, they are worth every cent. It is worth devoting a whole day if the kids can bear it!
