Malcolm makes you very welcome from the moment you arrive, he is very friendly and accommodating. The cooked breakfast is excellent (he used to be a chef). The rooms are a great size with fast internet. Let's not forget Charlie, the cutest, friendliest lab who is always happy to see you, don't worry he never barks. The price was amazing... More

having read the reviews I was a bit unsure about what to expect when we checked in, but we had a fantastic 3 night stay. It's not a 4 star luxury boutique b&b (but nor is its prices) and you won't get fluffy white bath sheets and a choice of 6 different types of pillow but what we did have... More

Horrible, horrible, horrible. Had I not already paid online and had it not been half term I would have fled on the spot. The room was dilapidated, unpainted walls, windows that wouldn't close and the bedding! The bed sheets smelt of urine and vomit they where thin and terribly worn and stained. On top of the filthy mattress was a... More

thank you for your review , it seems to me thats its rather strange that given that the sheets smelt of urine and vomit and the room was in such an appalling state that anybody in their right mind would stay a night there and then go down to breakfast to get food poisoning ! surely any sensible person would...

So myself and my friends didn't even get to stay at the Bakehouse. We were due to stay this weekend, Saturday 18th October.....3 days away. However, it seems that the owner has had problems with the Council and is now only able to trade with 5 rooms instead of their usual 10. Now I understand that perhaps these things happen.....my...

A really nice little B&B with an owner who was more than willing to go the extra mile. We stayed just one night but were made to feel very welcome by the friendly owner. The room was clean and tidy, with everything we needed. We would stay again!

Lovely, warm welcome with Malcolm allowing us to check in well before check-in time. The room offered everything one might need and the beautiful golden lab 'Charlie' visited on the regular. Delicious breakfast- excellent water pressure- comfy beds- gracious host- across from the abbey- couldn't have asked for more.

Wonderful b&b with laid back feel. Very accomodating hosts and they even kept my daughter occupied with some pumpkin carving! We will definitely go back. Travelled alone with my 7 year old daughter, who was attending a swimming gala, and I felt very safe and secure here. Also being an animal lover, would loved to have been able to take... More

The house is period, and being run by ex-antique dealers, is fitted with choice pieces of furniture that create a charming feel. Great value room, large bathroom, strong shower. The welcome was helpful and house-rules few. Very helpful and friendly manner. Breakfast was delicious, generous, and the dog delightful. A great little place.

Friendly enough welcome, but while I went away to park the car, my wife was shown to a room that bore no resemblance to any photograph on the website. The squadrons of flies circling the light fitting were dispatched by spraying as the swat could not be found. When asked for decaff tea, the best option was a grubby box... More
