This is the second time we have stayed for three nights in the family room. Frances is so welcoming and friendly, it really is a lovely, relaxing B&B to stay at. The breakfasts are superb, everything is clean and the staff lovely. I would certainly recommend using The Old Bakehouse, hopefully we will be back again soon!

We just had a brief stay in this beautiful village but couldn't have felt more welcome. The Old Bakehouse was really comfortable and having the living room was great with our two children. Frances was lovely and made us feel right at home. Breakfast was delicious too, and plentiful. A real plus for us was the absence of pets (fur... More

Another short break at the Bakehouse has again proven to be delightful. The attention to detail both in the bedrooms, lounge and breakfast room surpasses all expectations with the new addition of breakfast specials adding to an already comprehensive menu selection. A newly renovated bathroom in our room only added to an already complete and relaxing stay. We continue to... More

Have just said a sad 'Good bye' to the Old Bakehouse, and Frances, after another wonderful stay.

On arrival we were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome from Frances, who showed us to our room and carried our luggage for us. The rooms were very clean, spacious and relaxing. The room was very cosy in the evening, which was perfect for a relaxing weekend away in the countryside. The bakehouse itself was very homely and comfortable,... More
