Sitting in the quaint old market town, steeped in history, The Old Bakehouse is unique with it's staircase meandering up through it's centre It's rooms all come off this core, they are spacious, light and airy, spotlessly clean and comfortable, and tastefully decorated with nice linens. Breakfast is beautifully cooked from locally sourced products and the menu has a great... More

This was a great place to stay, We arrived late unexpectedly after a camping trip, tired with 2 children. Francis was wonderfully welcoming flexible and respectful. The room was cosy and clean, breakfast delicious, the attention to detail excellent, kids loved it too! Thanks for a lovely stay at a very reasonable price.

These standards continue with her B & B. She welcomed us with tea and biscuits and could not do enough to make us feel welcomed and... More

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.

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!
