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!

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.
