The room was very clean, well appointed with what looked like a brand new bathroom with all the finishing touches. There were plenty of choices for breakfast which was well cooked & very tasty...

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

Our family of four from Australia just stayed with Frances whilst travelling around Devon and visiting River Cottage last weekend. We had a great time and Frances was the perfect host. Will be back again.

We have stayed at the Old Bakehouse repeatedly over the last few years. Consistently excellent: homely rooms; very well fitted ensuite; excellent breakfast with bacon & sausages to die for, and a range of jams to drop your jaw. Next time we are in England ... we'll be here!
