The Old Bakehouse does not fit a simple category. It's secluded yet you are a mere hundred yards to and expertly pulled Guinness at the Malsters Arms. The Old Bakehouse sits on the water and then it doesn't. The tides change the setting while creating a diverse scene right before your very eyes. It's a quiet out of the way place accessed by narrow lanes. Steady as you go, for sure.

Brilliant home for an inter-generational family holiday. Everyone had their own bathrooms, there was a huge master bedroom and the kitchen was well equipped. A very practically designed house in a truly lovely setting. Highly recommended.

Very pleasant stay, communication was very good and the problem of no high chair, as asked for, was very quickly resolved. Very well equipped kitchen (and utility room) with high end appliances, plenty of crockery etc, and a nice touch was a few basics for our arrival. Very comfortable bedrooms with efficient en suite facilities. The lighting is quite fun to work out, but works well. Beautiful situation overlooking a creek with a couple of pubs nearby. All in all an excellent stay and I would recommend and would return.

The house is just great. It offers all the modern comfort with wifi, Netflix/Amazon within an old country house. The refurb was top quality. The neighbors are great people, Pubs within walking distance and the kids enjoyed feeding the swans and ducks at hide tide and the adults the drinks on the balcony. Gary was very responsive and helped when needed. We really enjoyed our time there and would definitely recommend it for summer as well as winter breaks!
