On the 7th August myself, wife and twin boys passed through Colyton (at around 6.30pm) in the hope that we could find last minute accommodation after being let down on a previous booked b & b in Seaton. We stopped in Colyton and made an ad hoc enquiry if any rooms were available at the Bakehouse. Unfortunately they were all... More

We booked this largely based on the fantastic reviews that I read online. We were visiting friends in nearby Seaton, and it was very convenient, to them and other tourist attractions of Beer, Branscombe and Lyme Regis. The Old Bakehouse is very quaint with comfortably furnished rooms. We arrived to a warm friendly greeting from our host Frances, and immediately... More

This was a great place to stay, We arrived late unexpectedly after a camping trip, tired with 2 children. Francis was wonderfully welcoming flexible and respectful. The room was cosy and clean, breakfast delicious, the attention to detail excellent, kids loved it too! Thanks for a lovely stay at a very reasonable price.
