“Lovely bank holiday break”
Reviewed 29 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Booked this fairly last minute as we wanted to get away to the coast for bank holiday but didn't want to drive too far away. The Bake House was perfect and everything we could have wanted for a relaxing weekend. The house is lovely, clean and well decorated with pretty much everything you could need for a short stay. The roof garden is a great little feature and we would have used it more if we weren't out and about. Parking was ok but it sometimes gets busy as the chip shop seems to be very popular!

Harwich is a lovely little place and we really enjoyed walking by the sea. In a geeky moment I was very excited to be able to spot the independent principality of Sealand from the shore (look it up!). We drove over to Clacton one night for dinner (about 25 minutes) and enjoyed it so much we went back the next day to skate along the promenade and test out the amusements on the pier. Really good day with lots of atmosphere and places to eat etc.

Really enjoyed our stay and hopefully we can come back soon!

Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We loved everything about our stay at the Bake house. Beautiful inside and out, everything you could possibly need in a holiday cottage. Lovely area can do as much or as little as you like. We all really enjoyed our stay with our dog and hope to go back again soon.

Great place to stay and visit. Arrived on the day of the sea festival. Old Town full of people and a great atmosphere.
Accommodation was very comfortable and certainly in the centre of the town, close to sea and places to eat. Well worth a visit.

“A hidden gem!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My boyfriend and I have just come back from a fantastic stay at The Bake House. It is a charming property in a central location in the old part of Harwich. The accommodation was very comfortable and had everything we needed. It is in a great location to enjoy the surrounding area as well as Harwich itself. We were very impressed with the quality of the property and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Booking couldn't have been easier and communication with Paul (the owner) was excellent throughout.

Whilst you're in the area, we highly recommend a trip to Felixstowe on the foot ferry. There are also many lovely eateries and pubs in Harwich, highlights include The Alma Inn and The Pier Hotel. We had never visited this part of the country before and were impressed with both The Bake House and everything the area had to offer. We hope to visit again very soon

What a beautiful hideaway. This little cottage was perfect for our 4 day mini break and had everything we needed and more. It was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Paul, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful . We will definitely be back!
