Stayed 5 nights in this quaint and comfortable cottage. Holly & Colin were very welcoming, and extremely helpful in recommending places to visit, eat etc. The addition of a small cosy lounge for guests was a bonus which we didn't expect. Excellent choice and well prepared breakfast. Cannot really agree with other reviewers' negative comments, apart from the slight disadvantage... More

We stayed here as we had a fishing weekend at Stafford Moor. Our room was small, shower was just big enough to fit in, toilet was tiny. It was a room for 2 but only 1 cafetiere which was one cup size. Breakfast was 8 to 9 with no flexibility for early risers. We had sandwiches made for us on... More

A quaint old-fashioned B&B with very charming hosts. The room was lovely and breakfast a delight. A laundry service and local phone were very handy and appreciated. Unfortunately, although advertising wifi on line, it was not an option, which was disappointing. We would not have booked had we known, because in our particular case it was important. We also had...

A good night's sleep is the key to ensuring a good stay. We slept like logs, in a beautiful cozy, comfy and quaint room. Milk in a thermos flask, mystified me at first, but what a lovely touch. A fine selection of teas and coffee, (teapot and cafeteria supplied), plus a couple of good quality biscuits. Hosts. (Holly and Colin)... More

We had to dash in early to drop bags and back out again to a family wedding, but not before we were offered fresh milk in a little Thermos (no UHT muck) for a quick cup of tea in our nicely furnished room. A nice selection of tea, too, and a mini cafetiere and decent coffee if you wanted. Basically,... More

Thank goodness I opted for this superb guesthouse....the Gods were clearly on my side as I confirmed the booking online. Every aspect of the stay was a pleasure. The Old Bakehouse is just brimming with authentic 'Old English' history, traditions and welcome, which comes as a great relief from the ever growing plasticity of the unfriendly, modern hotel chain existence...

We had a wonderful little break, staying at The Old Bakehouse. Chulmleigh is a very quaint, english country village with nice shops and great pubs. The room we had was lovely - clean, tidy, and we had plenty of tea and biscuits supplied. The breakfasts are AMAZING with lots of choice and the owners were really helpful and nice.

One night stay to attend a family event. Charming and simpathetic conversion of old village property. Lovely room with great little touches like real coffee that make the guesthouse stand out. Lovely English breakfast in charming dining area. Extensive breakfast menu incluing all the calssics home made.

My mother and I spent a very comfortable night at the Old Bakehouse. The proprietors were excellent hosts (they couldn't be more helpful and friendly). Overall, a really historic cosy place -a traditional b&b at very good price. We enjoyed good breakfast in characterful dining room before we set off for a good long walk. Chulmleigh is a small town... More

We stayed for one night in October and had a reasonably comfortable night, but left wishing that we'd stayed in the pub down the road - where we ate that night. The Old Bakehouse is indeed old, and quaint, but not as comfortable as we had hoped.
