The Old Bakery
Reviewed 6 March 2013

I spent a total of two nights at this truly superb B&B. It has everything you could wish for to make a wonderful stay. I had a HUGE room and bathroom which was spotlessly clean, comfortable and warm, quiet and beautifully furnished; the lounge/breakfast area was also comfortable and welcoming and the breakfast of fresh produce was delicious; but most of all the hosts, Meryl and Steven are really delightful, friendly and wonderfully hospitable people. And while you are there wander across the village green to the Crown Inn for a great meal in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. All in all the Old Bakery is not to be missed.

We stayed at the Old Bakery on the 20th February. It was bitterly cold weather, but the Old Bakery was beautifully warm and welcoming. Our room was spacious, very comfortable and worth the climb up a very narrow staircase. There a comfortable lounge with an open fire, just right to enjoy a night-cap. Great attention was paid to detail and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was very good, plenty to eat and well presented. We shall certainly return.

Room Tip: The Oak room was very good.

Myself & my husband have just spent a wonderful 2 nights at this gem of a B&B. The Old Bakery has been renovated to a very high standard, whilst still retaining original features throughout. As mentioned in other reviews Meryl & Steven are at the heart of this establishment and their hospitality is second to none. Friendly and welcoming without being too intrusive (the perfect balance, in my opinion) providing advice on day trips, which was much appreciated. We stayed in the Oak room which provided seating, TV, DAB radio, lovely fluffy towels & bathrobe and a huge bed, (cant remember the last time we slept so well away from home) well stocked beverage tray with fresh milk in flasks, Meryl even provided my husband with soya milk. We felt very relaxed and at home from the moment we walked in. Breakfast was superb and very tasty. The bonus for us was being able to 'chill' out in the very comfortable guests lounge, the warming log burner was just what we needed after a day out in the surrounding area. We ate a good, hot meal at the Crown across the green which had a varied menu at very reasonable prices. We hope to return at some point and would defiantly recommend.

How wonderful to receive such an enthusiastic and encouraging review of your stay at The Old Bakery - Thank You.

It's always lovely to hear from guests that they have enjoyed their stay and it's particularly nice to hear that you felt completely relaxed and at home. When we started out on this adventure we were asked to sum up in a few words what we wanted to offer our guests - our response was that we wanted guests to feel at ease during their stay and to leave feeling their batteries had been recharged - it sounds as if we achieved this for you.

Thank you again for our kind comments - we hope to see you again and wish you luck with your adventure.

Steve & Meryl.

Stayed for four nights and found everything; room, food, temperature and service faultless. Nice pub with average, but wholesome, food just across the village green. I was house hunting / viewing and was given plenty of helpful tips on the area and and local attractions. Breakfast was fresh and first class with fresh local produce. Snacks and evening drink served in the very nice lounge if you don't fancy walking over to the pub.

I love this place so much I wish I could have stayed a fortnight instead of one night! We felt so at home. Everything was perfect, there was no fault to find. Steve and Meryl were great, so welcoming, friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back. We were in serious need of a break and this was the best place to be, comfortable, quiet and off the beaten track.

I just had to write this review, this place is just the BEST B&B I have ever stayed at. Meryl and Steve are the kindest, most amazing couple, NOTHING is too much trouble. Myself and two friends stayed in the gorgeous Granary Room for two nights. The first night Meryl had kindly booked us into the Burston Crown for a fab meal, we couldn't get a taxi when we needed one, so Steve was really really kind and drove us there. The breakfasts are amazing, and you are made to feel so very welcome. If you're passing, and looking for somewhere with all the home comforts, then look no further. 100% recommend it, you won't be disappointed,

Room Tip: I have no doubt that all rooms are excellent, if you want something with added space we loved the Gr...

The two best B/Bs we have ever stayed in-and we have stayed in many-were Whitepark House in Co Antrim and Atlantic Shore in Bantry.Now here comes a contender to restore the English honour.The main thing to be said is that every effort has been made by the owners to make the Old Bakery the very best it can be.No corners have been cut and I have stayed in 5 star hotels which provide less.It is spotlessly clean and great value.As for the reviewer who didnt think much of the breakfast-words fail me.Do yourself a favour-try it and see.

Room Tip: There is only one with a bath
