The Old Bakehouse is not your average B&B. It smore like a posh small hotel. We were greeted by Frances who is a warm and welcoming lady. The place is clean, spotless and nicely furnished. Breakfast was excellent and made on time. Cant fault this place.

I have no hesitation in recommending The Old Bakehouse in Colyton, East Devon. My party of six were the sole occupants of the house over the weekend of 4th to 6th April 2014 and Mrs McCarthy and her staff couldn’t have made us more welcome. The house is spotless, comfortable and inviting. Breakfasts are varied and hearty. Mrs McCarthy is willing to try her best to help with any request – even, in our case, an emergency shuttle to Axminster Station! We would definitely stay there again.

Frances made us feel very welcome with tea on arrival. She couldn't have done more for us.
The B&B has a great location in the centre of the village.
We were offered a hearty breakfast with lots of choice. Rooms are spotlessly clean. Would recommend staying here for sure!

First trip to The Old Bakehouse and hopefully not our last! Frances made us very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful property, spotlessly clean and everything with a personal touch. Fantastic breakfast! For anyone needing to take time away from the normal routine and completely relax, this is the place to go. We highly recommend a visit.

Great accommodations, as soon as we arrived we were offered a cup of tea and made to feel very welcome by Frances. Nothing was too much trouble, the rooms were lovely, homely and spotlessly clean. An ideal location Seaton, Lyme Regis and Sydmouth to name but a few. Look forward to returning next year.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper perhaps to choose a room towards the back
