One of, if not the best places to stay on the UK. Fantastic hostess, staff and the food is great. I would recommend The Old Bakehouse to anyone and everyone. There is always a warm and friendly welcome, and the fact that there are a great number of returning customers shows that its worth booking for a visit.

Excellent location for Lyme Regis, Beer, Branscome and Sidmouth. Room was immaculate, quality breakfast and all the information you could need on the locality. Secure car parking was the icing on the cake! 10/10 We'll... More

We stayed at The Bakehouse for the first few days of the summer holidays this year. A family of 4, sharing a family room. The room is ideal for a small family, plenty of room to move around and a good bathroom with shower and bath. The breakfast is amazing!
