– Old Bakery Cottage

Charming & Comfortable


Old Bakery Cottage – is the newer of the two cottages at The House of Bread and has a slightly more open plan layout than Home Cottage. It is a characterful and comfortable stone cottage with beautiful features such as a stained glass window as you go upstairs and it has the added bonus of a wood-burner in the cosy lounge/diner.

Downstairs – Old Bakery Cottage is slightly smaller with a large airy lounge/dining room and a well-equipped separate kitchen.

Upstairs – Old Bakery Cottage has 2 bedrooms, a large, comfortable master bedroom with a king-sized bed and lovely views through triple aspect windows and a second bedroom (which can be either a double or twin depending on your requirements) and a light and airy upstairs bathroom with a bath with electric shower over.

Outside – there is a pretty courtyard garden with garden furniture and guests are also welcome to use the BBQ and many seating places in the larger courtyard garden at The House of Bread.

  • 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
