Two Beautiful Cottages


At the House of Bread our self-catering accommodation is provided in our two lovely stone built cottages (Old Bakery Cottage & Home Cottage). Both provide flexible accommodation to suit your needs. They sleep up to 4 in each (in either 2 double rooms or a double and a twin) and provide similar accommodation with a few key differences. We are dog friendly and allow 1-2 dogs per cottage.

Home Cottage

Home Cottage – is the older of the two cottages (circa 1750) and is packed full of character. It is slightly larger downstairs with a separate spacious dining/breakfast room, cosy lounge and kitchen. It is slightly smaller upstairs, with a characterful staircase, airy bathroom, a master bedroom and second bedroom (that can be set as a double or a twin) and has a small pretty outside seating area.

Old Bakery Cottage

Old Bakery Cottage – is more modern in layout with a combined lounge/diner (with a woodburner), separate kitchen and a downstairs loo. Upstairs it has a large and airy master bedroom, a second bedroom (which can be set as a double or a twin) and a light and airy bathroom. It has a small, self-contained courtyard garden area.
