We were made very welcome by Francis, and shown to our lovely room. We were delighted with so many things, such as a window in our bathroom, little bits such as cotton buds and cotton pads as well as luxury toiletries, cosy fleece blankets and a extremely well stocked hospitality tray. Just along the corridor was a treasure trove which... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Old Bakehouse and we loved it. You are made to feel really welcome. The room was a nice size and very comfortable and quiet. The location is a few yards from a great pub that has excellent food. And best of all are the super breakfasts.

Following our booking, what we felt was an extremely nice touch, was a personal handwritten letter from Frances confirming our stay. On our arrival we received a very warm welcome, shown our parking space, and a tour of the establishment. From the onset nothing was too much trouble, our room was delightful, with attention to detail. Amazing place, full of... More

I spent two nights here while speaking at a conference nearby. Frances is wonderful, with the warmest of welcomes after a long drive. Nothing was too much trouble, tea and biscuits and a really flexible approach to parking, bag carrying and all the creature comforts you might want. Plenty for breakfast with specially cooked scrambled eggs perfectly timed. Will have... More
