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 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). Both bedrooms have wall mounted TVs. 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.

Images – see below for more pictures of Home Cottage or visit our Gallery to see pictures of our local area & Hot Pot Pottery as well.

Our minimum stay is 3 nights and our usual check in/out is Mon or Fri but this is flexible. Just drop us a line to discuss your needs.

We love dogs and accept 1-2 per cottage but we do charge £10.00 per dog stay and we ask that you observe a few ‘Dog House Rules!‘:

  • bring your own dog towels (although we do provide one if you forgot!)
  • bring a dog bed and do not allow your dog on the beds or sofas
  • ideally do not let dogs do upstairs and do not to leave your dog(s) unattended in the cottage
  • bring dog bowls and feed your dog outside or in the kitchen
  • 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!
