A rental car is a huge help. I took the train to Rennes and picked up a car there. You can also fly to Rennes (I was scheduled to fly to Rennes on Air France using Delta frequent flyer miles, but the flight from Paris was cancelled and Air France provided the train tickets as a substitute.) Book a hotel ahead of time, I waited until a couple of months out and had a hard time finding a room and then the room was pretty basic (I would have gladly paid twice the price for something nicer but everything was booked.) Coming back I took a Ferry from LaHarve to Portsmouth (returning the rental care in LaHarve near the ferry terminal) and a train from Portsmouth to London (you can do that in reverse.)As I recall it was about a 5 pound taxi ride from the cruise port to the train station.
It is breathtaking. Go!
