Reviewed 19 June 2013

Warm friendly welcome from Francis with a breakfast just how you would want it. Knowledge of the area is fantastic when i asked Francis for directions. There are no restrictions on when you can come and go unlike some i have stayed in.I will certainly stay again in the near future. Highly recommended.

We had a very comfortable stay, every need was well catered for. The rooms were well equipped and the breakfast was wonderful, with a great selection of cereals and spreads. Colyton is a very pretty little town and an easy drive to many points of interest. We certainly hope to come and stay again.

Frances really made me feel welcome after a long, exhausting day. The Old Bakehouse is a real delight, olde worlde and charming, clean and tidy.

The breakfast was absolutely brilliant with sausages to die for. I have no hesitation in recommending The Old Bakehouse.

Very comfortable here for our overnight stay, and Frances's knowledge of our requirements for gluten free food made the stay much easier. Loved the extra touches such as access to a residents' fridge for fresh milk. Frances seems keen to provide every home comfort. It has a goodlocation right in the middle of a very pretty village.

Have just enjoyed another wonderful stay at The Old Bakehouse. What a treat! Even in the middle of winter, there is such a warm welcome at this cosy, historic B&B. My room, with its gorgeous, freshly updated bathroom was a delight: being both warm and comfortable. The breakfasts were fantastic, and nothing was too much trouble for Frances, the lovely host. Colyton is such a great place to base yourself. So, if you are looking for a place to stay anywhere in the Devon / Dorset area, this should be your first (and dare I say only) choice!

My friend and I booked the old bakehouse at the last minute to attend a meeting. In order for us to have time to eat before it, Frances drove us to a pub and collected us. The room was spotless and very well equipped. Breakfast was very good and overall Frances couldn't have been more helpful. Highly recommended!
