About Home Cottage

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 and has all you need for a self-catering stay.

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 family 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 in the larger courtyard garden at The House of Bread.

Our minimum stay is 2 nights with flexible change over days. Just drop us a line to discuss your needs.
