Place was clean, very friendly, great food, nothing too much for Frances. Would stay again and bring family, good central location to area. Stayed here to do a river cottage course - perfect location for that. Highly recommend it. Free Wi-Fi very handy to Skype the family at home too.

We had a lovely welcome from Frances and were pleased with our family room. Breakfast was great and they even had a gluten free option which was greatly appreciated. Would definitely stay there again as the surrounding areas were lovely too.

I have stayed here may times with family, and recently came to stay with a friend. The rooms are great, and have a very beachy seaside feel to them which is lovely. Frances is brilliant and always looks after us very well.... And she cooks the best breakfasts! There is a very cosy, chilled out atmosphere at The Old Bakehouse... More

Stayed here recently for a three night break while visiting friends. Friendly greeting from the owner Frances, who also makes great breakfasts. The property and the room were really clean and comfy, and the price was very good value. Colyton is also a great place to visit, with various things to do or see in the local area, including some...

My wife and I stayed at the Old Bakehouse over the weekend for a birthday party. The greeting was really friendly and Francis was a fantastic hostess.

The Old Bakehouse is not your average B&B. It smore like a posh small hotel. We were greeted by Frances who is a warm and welcoming lady. The place is clean, spotless and nicely furnished. Breakfast was excellent and made on time. Cant fault this place.

I have no hesitation in recommending The Old Bakehouse in Colyton, East Devon.
