Have been to Colyton again two years after my last visit and stayed at The Old Bakehouse again. I only stayed two nights but felt as if I had stayed a week I felt so relaxed. Frances, the proprietor, was still there and the B&B was just as lovely, if not better than I remembered it. It is so clean... More

I choose to celebrate my 50th birthday at The Old Bakehouse with family, having read others excellent reviews. Frances the owner made me so welcome and made me feel so special.

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!

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
