The Bakehouse is a unique, quirky cottage.
The kitchen is very well equipped with a full size electric stove, small dishwasher, fridge freezer and washing machine. There's lots of pans and bowls, cups and plates, glasses etc. Please ask us for anything you need extra. We provide salt, pepper, sugar and mixed herbs as well as tea and coffee. In the cupboard in the kitchen under the stairs is an ironing board and iron as well as the main waste bin and cleaning materials.
There’s a bookshelf on the stairs with books, games, puzzles etc.
The bathroom has a bath with shower over, basin and toilet. We provide towels.
In the big bedroom, there’s a cupboard and hooks for clothes and a veneered chest of drawers which stands next to a modern table and wicker chair. A hairdryer is provided.
The cottage is snug and easy to heat in winter with central heating as well as a wood burning stove. And when the sun comes out, it catches the light and warmth through the south facing windows all along one side.
Outside there's a garden bench and garden tables and chairs on the south facing terrace.
By the front door, there's a porch with storage space for shoes and coats plus. Although right next to the main house, the Bakehouse is completely separate and you can have as much or as little contact with us as you want.
The cottage is at right angles to the main farmhouse and to enter the front door you cross a shared courtyard. If you prefer you can enter the cottage via the rear door to the conservatory.
There is ample parking in front of the house.
You are welcome to walk over our 70 acres and we will advise on which fields have animals in and are best avoided. You can also access the farmhouse back garden where there is a traditional swing and home built climbing frame (which people use at their own risk -- these are not tested to playground standards).
Interaction with guests
We enjoy talking with guests about organic farming and about the local area etc. We can offer recommendations about walks in the hills (maps available) and where to eat and visit locally. We are situated strategically half way between the Walnut Tree (1 Michelin star) and the Hardwick restaurants. We can recommend other, less expensive restaurants and pubs locally too. We are two of the founders of the Abergavenny Food Festival and have a particular interest in food.
Other things to note
We accept well behaved dogs but they need to be under control outside at all times as the ducks wander everywhere and there are often lambs and sheep in the orchard or paddocks near the house. We don't want dogs left on their own to whine or bark while their owners go out for long periods, We have a boisterous young dog ourselves and two outdoor barn cats have adopted us and are usually around.
- Toddlers are welcome but the brook is unfenced and right outside the back door. It's usually pretty low in summer but guests with small children need to be aware.
- We ask guests to recycle as much as possible
- we accept well behaved pets but do not want them left for long periods whining and barking while the owners are away.
