"Malcolm (the host) was very welcoming and showed us great hospitality. A nice relaxed atmosphere made it a real home from home. The rooms were good and his cooking was fantastic! I would definitely stay there again."

"Its a great place where you really feel at home and with his prices you almost feel sorry for him - don't know how he does it. 100% recommended."

"The ensuite was very good, decorated with interesting antiques and offering easy private access (all day). The cooked breakfast was perfect, as one might expect of a former chef."


"We stayed at the Bakehhouse back in May for a friends wedding. Malcom was very friendly and welcoming, it felt like you were staying round at a friends house. Breakfast was lovely."
