The location of the Bakehouse was perfect / 5 mins from the Abbey and Town centre. The rooms were spacious and clean. Malcom was very friendly and made us very welcome. He cooked a lovely breakfast. Everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable.

Stayed with my partner and child. Charming quirky place with clean room and comfy beds. Top notch breakfast and a lovely old lab called Charlie who eats the leftovers! Great value, very friendly and would highly recommend

Greetings Malcom. It doesnt have its own parking but there are areas in a short walking distance where there is no parking restrictions. If you are worried about unloading bags etc it appears that there are no angry traffic wardens ready to pounce. Apologies it took me so long to respond. Kind regards

"Don't be shy to ask whatever you want for breakfast"
"Some of the rooms face the main street which is very noisy during the day and till about 10pm."
"Go somewhere else, or negotiate a very cheap rate"
"Any room really as the traffic noise is nonexistent and the only noise you hear is the clock in the abbey"
"Ask for a room at the back of the house if you want a quite one"
$71 - $73 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
