With your back to the train station (la gare), at eastern end of the centre of Carhaix, turn left and travel about 100 metres, to a mini roundabout. Turn left at the roundabout, under a railway bridge and continue 200 metres to the next mini roundabout. Turn right and continue 150 metres to a roundabout with a large metalic sculpture of 3 musicians in the centre. Turn right and decend a hill, passing a Toyota garage and garden centre ‘Point Vert’ on the right. At the next mini roundabout take the 3rd exit, Route de Kerlédan and the entrance to Manoir de Kerlédan is about 300 metres up that road on the right, just before a walking path crosses the road.


From The East, Rennes & Rostrenen

From Rennes, follow the N12 north-west and then the N164 west, past Loudeac, Gouarec and Rostrenen, towards Quimper and Chateaulin. Carhaix-Plouguer is another 19 kms further on west past Rostrenen, much of which is on the new dual-carriageway road. Look out for the signs for the first exit for Carhaix-Plouguer and also the D787 towards Guingamp.

After coming off the slip road, you come within a few hundred metres to a roundabout on the eastern edge of Carhaix. Take the last exit (3rd) off the roundabout heading west towards the town. After 100 metres there is a mini roundabout, where you go straight on, then after about 1 km, you come to another larger roundabout, with a stone hut and water feature on it, where you take the 3 rd exit. This passes a Citroen garage on the left and a Peugeot garage on the right before coming to another roundabout (3 musicians’ sculpture) where you go straight over.
