This charming B&B is in the delightful village of Colyton and is handy for the beautiful Jurassic Coast and local resorts such as Sidmouth, Lyme Regis and Seaton. The tram for Seaton begins here and passes through Colyford. Great for birdwatchers! The Old Bakehouse is a sympathetically restored old building, with further upgrading of the bathrooms in progress to make it even more deluxe than it already is. Frances, the owner, made us feel so welcome and that's the reason we keep going back! There are some lovely touches, including fresh milk with the tea and coffee, kept cool in a little room with fridge, maps, ironing board and lots of other things you might need. There's a guest lounge downstairs where you can relax or simply meet up before setting out. There's parking off road to the rear of the property, which Frances arranges for you, so no need to worry about your car.The breakfast was wonderful(beautifully prepared fruit), with festive touches such as Bucks Fizz, Kir Royale and scrambled egg with smoked salmon. As Frances also runs a tea room and garden, as well as a light lunch menu, there's a chance of 'room service', as well as the opportunity to order a packed lunch or flasks for a day out. She really cares about her guests and does everything possible to make them feel comfortable. Her staff are lovely and just as keen to please.
