While visiting prospective wedding venues in gorgeous North Devon we stayed one night at this new B&B in the village of Georgeham. We were welcomed (and really welcomed as opposed to standard hotel check in) by the owners and shown to a beautiful room in the main house. The bed was the comfiest we have slept in away from home and the seperate bathroom with freestanding roll top bath was lovely!
The room is one of 3 on offer (a more contained suite to soon be added) and was spotless, clean, comfortable and well equiped with flat screen TV and ipod dock (not sure if wifi is offered for al guests but the hosts were kind enough to let us have their access info for us to use).
As we were also scouting prospective accomodation for wedding guests we were shown all the rooms and all were of a very similar high standard. One of the rooms is at the bottom of the garden so offers extra privacy if this is what you were after,
The owner gave us info on the local area and as a result we also visited the local pub "The Rock" which is 200 yards from the B&B. Great pub and highly recommended!!
Overall, we are now booked for the wedding so will be spending more nights at The Old Bakery during the many visits we will have to make to the area. We will also be recommending to our wedding guests and urging them to be quick to get a room in this lovely B&B.
