Lovely, comfortable old building full of charm and character, situated in an equally charming village. Our host, Frances was friendly and very helpful - providing a tea towel and ice pack for my sprained foot, which I managed to sprain a couple of hours before going on holiday. Breakfasts very satisfying and our dietary requirements (me vegetarian, my partner gluten-free)... More

The Old Bakery was plucked from the internet as the ideal location for our planned stop in the area of Seaton. My family comprised three adults and two children. Booking was very straightforward and we were in receipt of a nice welcoming letter from Frances, the proprietress. As requested we advised our ETA on the day of our travel. Frances... More

Wonderful warm welcome by Frances. Idyllic location for this quaint B&B with creature comforts. Colyton is a gem of a village and the Old Bakehouse retains wonderful characterful features. Very clean property and bed comfortable. Great breakfast too! Will be back again soon no doubt😀!

It is so nice to meet genuine people who care about your stay , too many think only of their business and not about an individual and their needs .I cant thank this bed and breakfast enough on their customer services and every communication has been immediate and thoughtful.
