The Old Bakehouse is full of charm and character just like Colyton itself. Frances is welcoming and attentive and her staff are delightful young women. Our room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. Breakfast is amazing with a huge choice of options and all diets catered for. A good base to tour the area but don't miss out on Colyton... More

Our first visit to The Old Bakehouse and Colyton. We were not disappointed. Frances was wonderful, very attentive and helpful and breakfast was just yummy with so much choice. A special mention to her young staff who obviously took pride in their job and were just delightful. The building is old and we loved the quirkiness of it all, our... More

From the welcome we got from Frances to the lovely breakfast and all the extras to be found in the Old Bakehouse and all on top of its location in the charming village of Colyton, the whole stay was very pleasurable and was definitely one of the best b&b's I've stayed in. I can well recommend this b&b.

The Old Bakehouse is what every B&B should be. Frances and her staff should be walking around bent over backwards, nothing is too much trouble from the time you book , to the time you leave.
