– Home Cottage

Full of Character


Home Cottage – is the oldest cottage at The House of Bread (circa 1750) and as such has a more quirky layout than Old Bakery Cottage and is packed full of character.

Downstairs – Home Cottage is slightly bigger downstairs with a separate cosy lounge, large airy dining/breakfast room and a well-equipped kitchen.

Upstairs – Home Cottage has 2 bedrooms, a comfortable master bedroom with a king-sized bed and a second bedroom (which can be set either as a double (with a super-king bed) or a twin depending on your requirements). There is also a light and airy upstairs bathroom with a bath with shower over.

Outside – There is a private outside seating area with a pretty arch and bench and views over our the back courtyard. Guests are also welcome to use the BBQ and the many seating places in the larger courtyard garden at The House of Bread.

NB: As we also offer B&B accommodation in Home Cottage, there are wall mounted TVs and tea & coffee making facilities in the bedrooms.

  • bring your own dog towels and use the porch area to dry your dog
  • bring a dog bed and do not allow your dog on the beds or sofas and do not to leave your dog unattended in the cottage
  • bring dog bowls and feed your dog in the kitchen, outside or in the porch with the washing machine & tumble drier
  • clean up after your dog and be aware of other guests and pottery visitors who may not be so keen on dogs as we are!
