    The Old Bakery sits in the grounds of Town End Farm on the edge of the ancient village of Crowcombe in the heart of the Quantock Hills, the first area in Britain designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is a footpath directly opposite the entrance which leads right up to the top of the hills and across the surrounding countryside which has changed very little from the days when it inspired the romantic poets Coleridge and Wordsworth.

    Just a few minutes walk will take you into the heart of the village, where you will find the village church, shop with Post Office and also the excellent pub, The Carew Arms.

    The Old Bakery is perfect for the traditional summer holiday or for short breaks any time of the year.

    We keep a small selection of outdoor play equipment for young...

Service: Exceeded our expectations of a holiday let and met all of our needs. We were made to feel welcome for the whole of the six week rental period. Approachable and accessible if needed. So many lovely touches, from the cream tea on arrival to the "emergency" box of toiletries. Property: A beautiful two-bedroomed cottage. Warm and cosy with a... more

My husband and I spent a week in the Old Bakery in April 2013. Crowcombe is a beautiful village and surrounded by even more beautiful hills. Bruce is the perfect host (scones and clotted cream upon arrival!) and pretty much every aspect of our stay exceeded our expectations. We will be back. more

We stayed at The Old Bakery with my wife's Parents and found the accommodation suited our needs very well with a accessible ground floor for the outlaws and an open style Bedroom for ourselves upstairs. Great cream tea on arrival and can heartily recommend the eggs supplied by Bruce (well Bruce's hens actually) for scrambling. Pub 5 minute walk super... more
